Learning. Striving. Picking yourself up when life knocks you down. These are experiences Joe Girard knows about better than anyone, and the subjects Joe explores in this in-depth and uplifting self-help book. From identifying time-wasters, building self confidence, practicing the art of self-discipline, learning how to associate with the right kind of people, and spotting the opportunities available to you, this book takes you through the challenges of working for success and the actual experience of life itself-to show how you make the most of your unlimited potential. Here are just some of the essential how-to's Joe teaches in this book: How to get a handle on your goals, How to make think-pictures and visualize the success you want, How to take risks-the kind that make sense How to reaffirm, every day, that you are truly #1 and can reach any goal you set, How to recognize new opportunities in your life and make the most of them. At the heart of MASTERING YOUR WAY TO THE TOP are dozens of extraordinary profiles of some of America's top business people who tell where they came from and share their own private rules for success with you. Among these leaders are Richard M. DeVos, who became a billionaire because he confounded a company called Amway in his garage with his high school friend; Muriel Siebert, who came to New York City from Ohio with Five hundred dollars and now has the largest woman-owned company on the New York Stock Exchange; and pizza king Tom Monaghan, who bought the small pizzeria where he worked and turned it into a billion-dollar chain called Domino's. A man with a huge heart as well as a wealth of business experience and savvy, Joe Girard has written his most inspirational and important book yet-a book for everyone who is ready to make changes in his or her life, set goals, and master the climb to the top. Joe Girard worked his way up from shoeshine boy, dishwasher, delivery boy, stove assembler, and home building contractor to become recognized in the Guinness Book of Records as the "world's greatest salesman." He sold more retail "big ticket" items "one at a time" than any other salesperson in any retail industry including houses, boats, motor homes, insurance, automobiles, etc. As an international lecturer Joe speaks before civic groups, organizations and sales conventions of many major corporations worldwide. The author of the powerful bestsellers, HOW TO SELL YOURSELF, HOW TO SELL ANYTHING TO ANYBODY and HOW TO CLOSE EVERY SALE, goes beyond anything you have ever read about achieving success.
