He Gives Us Parables

“Jesus kinda fools around and gives you parables.
He doesn’t oftentimes say exactly what He means.
But, in Matthew 25, He’s very, very clear.
And He delineates what it takes to get into the Kingdom of Heaven
very, very clearly. And He says how you treat the least among us,
the least of our brothers, that’s how you treat Him.”
~ Juan Vargas,
Attorney, U.S. House of Representatives (2012–Present)

Appreciation, Respect, Chivalry & Love

“Although I have a lot of close female friends in my life,
my number one is still my mom.
Without her, I wouldn’t have the values that I have
and see the world the way that I do today.
She taught me how to appreciate and respect women.
She taught me chivalry and how to love a woman
and respect their feelings and emotions.”

 

“Let a woman have her place,
because as you provide foundation for her,
she provides a foundation for you.
And through that vulnerability comes strength.”

Like They Will Buy

“Look, you need to treat the prospect like a buyer — treat everyone like a buyer.
One of the biggest errors made by salespeople — especially experienced salespeople —
is the supposed ability to determine who is and who isn’t a real buyer.
I don’t care what the situation they told you is— no money, no budget, they got tax problems,
and they’re not the decision maker — treat the buyer like a buyer. Treat them like they WILL buy from you.”
~ Grant Cardone,
Author, Entrepreneur, Producer,
& Online Sales Training Expert

Conduct & Behavior, Wherever They Go

“Sixty-five percent of Americans don’t have the conversation with their children.
So you’re sending off boys and girls off to college, off to high school, off to wherever they go,

About a man telling his son how to be a man.
How to respect a woman.
How do you respect yourself?”

Narrow Their Choice

Know Your Worth
When someone treats you like you’re just one of many options,
help them narrow their choice, by removing yourself from the equation.
Sometimes you have to try not to care, no matter how much you do.
Because, sometimes, you can mean almost nothing
to someone who means so much to you.
It’s not pride, it’s self-respect.

Don’t expect to see positive changes in your life
if you surround yourself with negative people.

Don’t give part-time people a full-time position in your life.
Know your value and what you have to offer,
and never settle for anything less than what you deserve.
