#VoiceOfTheBook: The Greatness Guide Chapter nineteen

Transcript: Every time you say yes to something that is unimportant, you are saying no to something that is important. “Yes men” and “Yes women” never create anything great.

Say no to the relative who laughs at your Read More …

The Greatness Guide Chapter eighteen

Transcript: I’m standing in line at a Starbucks. The Dave Matthews Band is playing in the background. The smell of coffee fills the air. The espresso machines blast away.

If you’re in business, one of the most important things I sugges that you consider is the idea that people don’t buy with their heads so much as with Read More …

#VoiceOfTheBook: The Greatness Guide Chapter Seventeen

Transcript: My mom is a very wise woman. As a kid, I loved to talk (still do). In school, I always did well academically but my report cards never failed to note my passion for vigorously exercising my vocal chords on a near – constant basis. One day Mom sat me down and said: “Robin, you were given two ears and one mouth for a reason: to listen twice as much as you speak.” Brilliant Read More …

#VoiceOfTheBook: The Greatness Guide Chapter sixteen

  Transcript: Genius is not the sole domain of a rare breed of person. Both you and I are entitled to that label and to play in that space – if we so choose. Here’s the big idea: Focus on any area of skill with a relentless devotion to daily improvement and a passion for excellence and within three to five years, you will be operating at a level of competence (and insight) such that Read More …

#VoiceOfTheBook: The Greatness Guide Chapter fifteen

Transcript: That old line remains so true: “The harder I work, the luckier I get.” Life helps those who help themselves. Learned that one from personal experience. I’m not one of those New Age types that believes “it’s all meant to be” and that our lives have been scripted by an invisible set of hands. That kind of talk smacks of “victimspeak” and fear. Fear of failure. Fear of rejection. Fear of not being good Read More …

One CEO client told me recently that when he was young, Read More …

#VoiceOfTheBook: The Greatness Guide Chapter twelve

#VoiceOfTheBook: The Greatness Guide Chapter eleven

Transcript: Last Monday night I watched a 62 – year – old man rock the house for more than two hours in front of 30,000 adoring fans. Yup, Mick is 62 and the once young Stones frontman is aging. But he still has that charisma. Still has the moves. Still has the youth. As I watched him, I thought of a term I’ve been sharing at my seminars these days: “reference points.” I heard someone Read More …
