On Influence & Associating:
Don’t join an easy crowd. You won’t grow. Go where the expectations and the demands to perform are high.
There are two parts to influence. First, influence is powerful. And second, it is subtle.
Let the views of others educate and inform you, but let your decisions be a product of your own conclusions.
On Persuasive Communication:
Good communication starts with good preparation.
What is powerful is when what you say is just the tip of the iceberg of what you know.
If you just communicate you can get by. But if you skillfully communicate, you can work miracles.
From ‘The Treasury of Quotes’ by Jim Rohn (1993)
