You’re probably here because you’re interested in property investment or money.
But if you think about it, underlying that is success.
You’re probably looking for more success in all areas of your life, and success depends on your ability to influence and communicate.
That’s what we’re going to be talking about today.
In today’s episode, I’m going to be talking with a very successful person Allan Pease, about the importance of body language.
Body language is an important part of communication because so much communication happens in a nonverbal way.
Allan also has a lot to say about success, and he has some thoughts on who will win the American presidential election based on the candidates’ language.
The Beliefs that Guide Successful People
Successful people believe in themselves.
They know if they don’t believe in themselves, no one else will
Successful people believe they’re in charge of their own life.
They believe they’re the pilots of their own lives, not just a passenger
. Believing you’re responsible for what you make of a situation is empowering.
Successful people believe that there are opportunities everywhere.
Because they look for opportunities, they find them.
Successful people believe in doing things that no one else will.
They take risks and are willing to try things that others won’t.
They know if they want to be different, they have to do different things.
Successful people believe that execution is critical.
The power is not in the information, it’s in the action you take.
Successful people believe in winning through hard work.
Work comes first and the payoff comes later.
Successful people believe in giving back.
Giving back keeps successful people grounded, humble, and in touch with reality.
