When you learn you get three types of results.
First is the joy of learning. Most of us enjoy seeing things dif-

satisfaction can come from teaching and helping others.


In this book, I have tried to give you all of these components of
learning. Ideas to stimulate and inspire the leader in you. Information
that describes how to be a leader. Actions you can take to become a
stronger leader. And ways to improve the results you are getting.
     Don't just accept what I say. As a matter of fact, you may disagree
with certain statements I make. But that's okay...you have the right to
be wrong!
     When you find good ideas, test them. See what works. My goal is to
give you the tools to be a leader in your life. But you have to use them.

cessful business people is a form of exercise. (Try telling that to your
spouse tonight!) If you want to improve your confidence, taking risks --
