The Building Blocks of Success

“As I looked at those who have done well, I have compiled a list, in no special order, of those things that make the average person successful. I call it The Building Blocks of Success, among these are learning how to fail, overcoming procrastination, being assertive, not aggressive, seeking help, not allowing mediocre standards…”

— David Sandler

The Barriers to Success

“Another interesting thing that highly successful people have learned how to do is take a look at the Success Barriers…Low Self-Esteem; “Mr. Nice Guy” Muddle; Not Knowing the Difference Between Needs and Wants; Unfinished Business, Excess Baggage; Being Realistic, Giving Up Dreams…What are the things that hold people back, and what are they going to do about it?”

— David Sandler

The Anatomy of Failure & Risking

“Failure is universal; it is part of the human experience. It is important to fail because only by failure are you likely to accomplish anything.”

— David Sandler

Power Plays & Games

“Power plays generally move into games. In order for us to be gutsy and assertive, we’ve got to understand what psychological games are going on.”

— David Sandler

Get Tough: The New You

“It is a list of things that I have observed of people who are assertive, gutsy, and who plant their feet. It includes some of the techniques, behaviors, and concepts that they use.”

— David Sandler
