    By Jan 20,2019

    Yoritomo-Tashi presents to us ideas that enormously dominate the human mind through this tremendously inspiring book, Influence: How to Exert It. In the twelve lessons contained in this book, the methods by which influence may be exerted and exercised are considered. According to the author, the key to success lies in the art of influencing others.

    The Dangers of Getting Jobs Through Friends

    By Nov 23,2018

    Concentrate on the Process, Not the Results

    By Jan 14,2019

    Some time ago, I was listening to a seminar about a company that was in the furniture business.

    The Most Important Person You Communicate with Is Yourself

    By Jan 15,2019

    “The mind can make a heaven out of hell or a hell out of heaven” -John Milton Several years ago, I was home after graduating from college and I met a guy who was friends with my girlfriend’s brother. He had graduated from Yale University a year or two before and was driving a truck all around Detroit delivering meat to restaurants. He typically drove this meat truck from 4:00am until noon each day. He got paid in cash at the end of each day by his boss. He’d been the first person from the public school he had Post Footer automatically...

I remember my first encounters with the self-improvement industry when I was younger. In many areas of the United States, people look at self-improvement as something that is absolutely crazy. That is how the people around me viewed it when I was growing...
