My Favorite "Moral Of The Story" Tips From Harvey Mackay
I'm a big fan of best-selling author Harvey Mackay. He writes about business, sales and leadership and typically ends his articles with a moral of the story.
Culled from his writings of the past few years, here are some of my favorites of his moral of the story endings:
- Change your thinking, change your life.
- It's not enough to know how to do things - you must know why you do them.
- If you live in the past, you won't have much of a future.
- If you want to outsmart the competition, you have to outthink the competition.
- Don't be afraid to make a decision. Be afraid not make a decision.
- What you learn on your first job will last through your last job.
- Minds are like parachutes - not much good unless they are open.
- If you can't be an expert, hire one.
- People have a way of becoming what you encourage them to be.
- It only takes a little spark to ignite a great fire.
- Doing the right thing is never the wrong thing to do.
Mackay's best-selling business books have sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. They have been translated into 37 languages and sold in 80 countries.
Swim With the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive was a groundbreaking New York Times #1 best seller for 54 weeks.
