Improve Your Life

I like the following quotations from Jeffrey J. Mayer. You can register to receive a weekly newsletter from and read some of his quotes and other business tips.

Improve Your Life:

The road to success is based on the choices you make.

There will be many challenges. Face them one at a time, and you'll go further and farther than you ever dreamed.

Learn to see the invisible opportunities where other people only see visible limitations.

You grow by building on your strengths. By getting better at the things you're already good at. Become good enough and you become an expert.

Experts stand head and shoulders above everybody else.

Say YES to your big dreams, and your whole world changes.

You succeed when you do what it is you know.

Take action, and the purpose will be revealed.

Expect and demand the best from yourself and those around you.

You can be good, pretty good... or GREAT.

Acknowledge the people who have helped you. Nobody goes through life alone. Your successes are an accumulation of the things you have learned and the ideas you have gathered from the people you've met along the way.

As you grow and develop in your business, industry, community and family, your growth comes from those who came before you.

Remember: You're standing on the shoulders of giants.

The Power Of Enthusiasm:

Put enthusiasm into your work. Look forward - with excitement - to each new day.

Be energetic. Enthusiasm is contagious. It effects your colleagues, your customers, your family and your friends. You'll feel better when you put energy and enthusiasm into your life.

Vision And Values:

Think of your vision as a lighthouse. It's a beacon that lights the way and shows you the direction you want to go.

It shows you your path to success while illuminating the obstacles to be avoided.

When you know what your vision is you make better choices and build better relationships.
You are in control of your destiny. It's your life.

If you're not having the best year of your life, you're a fool to think it will get better if you don't make some changes.

Remember: Relevance is something we earn by the importance others place on what we do for them.

Building Relationships:

You are paid for your wisdom.

Knowledge is the information you get from reading books.

Wisdom is what you've learned from your experiences.

#1 Sales Secret:

Find out what the other person wants, then help him find the best way to get it. The best way to find out what someone wants it to ask. Learn how to ask brilliant questions and you'll be a huge success.

Remember: It's not about you. It's about them!
Think in reverse. Ask yourself these four questions:

1. What does the customer want?

2. What does the customer need?

3. What does the customer value?

4. What does the customer expect?

#1 Motivation Secret:

You can't make anybody do anything. The only way you can get anybody to do anything is to make the other person WANT to do it.

Remember: Logic makes people think. Emotion makes people buy.

People don't buy what they don't understand.

Add Humor - Laughter - To Your Life:

When something embarrassing happens, remind yourself that 'someday you'll look back on this...' and laugh.

Don't take everything so seriously. Since you're going to look back on this and laugh about it later. Then try to laugh about it now.

As you go through life, be flexible instead of rigid.

Expect that things won't go as planned. Plan for the unexpected. If something happens, you're prepared. And if it doesn't, you're better off.

See the humor in your life. Many events are funny, if you can take a step back and look at what's happened.

Take a deep breath and relax. Chill out, and laugh... in spite of life.

Remember: Everything becomes a wonderful story you can tell.
