-The Best Leave a Legacy - They aren’t in it just for themselves, though they will surely reap the rewards of being the best.
-The Best Are Adept at the Two Most Important Pieces of Time and Personal Management: Prioritize and Execute - Just like weight loss boils down to eating right and exercise, personal management boils down to prioritize and execute.
-The Best Focus on Building Relationships - Success does not come alone.
-The Best Make No Excuses - When they fail, they admit it and move on.
