BEING THE BEST x 4
22. Nido Qubein: If what you're working for really matters, you'll give it all you've got.
21. Tom Hopkins: Successful people begin where failures leave off. Never settle for 'just getting the job done.' Excel!

19. Brian Tracy: Never settle for anything less than your best.
18. Jim Rohn: Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day; while failure is simply a neglect of disciplines, repeated every day. It is the accumulative weight of our daily disciplines that leads us to fortune; or the neglect of disciplines to failure.
17. Brian Tracy: Your self-image controls your performance; see yourself as confident and in complete control at all times.

9. Bob Burg: Play the 'Reverse Gossip' Game. See how many nice things you can say 'behind someone's back'.
8. Dale Carnegie: You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.

6. Brian Tracy: The more you teach positive ideas to others, the better you learn them yourself.

4. George Herman "Babe" Ruth: Never let the fear of striking out get in your way.
3. Brian Tracy: Do the thing you fear, then the death of fear is certain.
2. Jim Rohn: The goal of effective communication should be for listeners to say, 'Me, too!' versus 'So what?'
1. Brian Tracy: Poor or fuzzy communications are major time-wasters. Take the time to be crystal-clear in your communications with others.
