The Greatest Salesman in the World

Why you decided to chose this resource.
I have read this book a few times and I believe it is the reason why I am still a sales person. This book is more about personal development than it is about selling – to become a better person to create true bonds with others and to essentially habituate oneself for greatness in sales or anything else.

What did you learn from it?
Half of he 100 page book is a backstory of a person that discovers a set of scrolls that his master gives him. The scrolls are to be read and reread until they are internalized. I got through scroll V in the manner it suggests. I am determined to go through it again this year.

I will persist until I succeed.

I was not delivered into this world into defeat, nor does failure course in my veins. I am not a sheep waiting to be prodded by my shepherd. I am a lion and I refuse to talk, to walk, to sleep with the sheep.

The slaughterhouse of failure is not my destiny.

I will persist until I succeed.
