Key Takeaways and Actionable Success Principles

  • While prospecting, listen more than you talk, ask questions, and pay attention.
  • A positive mindset propels you forward. “Be cheerful, treat everyone respectfully, enjoy and savor every moment of life because you never know what’s going to happen around the corner.”
  • “There’s nothing stopping you from reaching your goals except for yourself — except for your own limiting beliefs and your own willingness to quit before you get there.”

“In order for someone to follow you as the leader, they have to like you, trust you, and have confidence in your competence.” – Ron Cathell
