(4) Find the right people to help you on your journey- and be patient with those who might be resistant at first. They can't always see your vision.
(5) The best way to reach people- whether you're selling something, or teaching something, or motivating someone to do their best work- is to listen and learn and to learn to see a situation from their point of view.
(6) Find the people who will inspire you to realize your own potential, and listen well.
