I, E, I – The Last I

“Look for three things in a person:
Intelligence, Energy and Integrity.
If they don’t have the last one,
don’t even bother with the first two.”

Becoming Associations

“Who you associate with is who you become.
The term “role model” is not used enough in our society.
It’s extremely important to have role models.
A role model will raise your standards.
A role model will not let you get complacent.
Finding a role model or mentor will spark your mind
because they are playing the game at a higher level than you are.

If you hang around five confident people, you will be the sixth.

If you hang around five intelligent people, you will be the sixth.

If you hang around five millionaires, you will be the sixth.

If you hang around five idiots, you will be the sixth.

If you hang around five broke people, you will be the sixth.

It’s inevitable.”

Friends, Teachers & Experiences

“I’ve been blessed my whole career, my whole life,
with great friends, great teachers and great experiences;
I’ve done some wonderful things all along the line. But this is truly unbelievable!
So much of it is not just because your peers feel a certain way about you–and that is tremendous–
yet, also because you know how much it means to your family and to your friends,
because we’re all connected. And I honestly feel as though I’m representing all the gypsies. It’s all good stuff.”
