I’m just wrapping up the day on a cold and drizzly Monday afternoon. I have WEEI Sports Radio Boston on in the the background and I’m listening to Coach Belichick being interviewed about his game plan against the Baltimore Ravens. The one thing Belichick said that struck a nerve with me was how he was talking about turning a disadvantage into an advantage and if you can’t pay attention to the little things in practice and on game day, then it will kill you. The motto that he hammers through the skulls of his players are “little things make the big things happen,” and obviously we had a Patriots Victory yesterday because we did the little things better. The same can be said about the San Francsico 49ers and the New York Giants game; it came down to the little things that made the difference between the Giants winning and San Fran losing.
Little Hinges Swing Big Bank Vault Doors
Another great analogy that I love from the late, great salesmen W. Clement Stone (who employed over a 1,000 direct sales insurance reps during the Great Depression) is his saying that “little hinges swing big doors.” I can really only think of two things to become a serious student in learning how to have a very, very BIG BANK BALANCE:
Self-Improvement…Improving Your Self-Image, Self-Confidence, Communication Skills and Sales Skills.
Advertising and Marketing, because that’s where the REAL money is at!
Another great quote by W. Clement Stone (that he had his sales reps write on the binders of their personal notebooks) was: Do It Now!
Improve in these two areas RIGHT NOW!
