Lottisms

Wisdom Shared
“We underestimate our influence in this world”
“Adversity is an opportunity to gain wisdom.”
“It’s the conviction, mindset, and ultimately action that defines us.”
“The successes drive us and the failures challenge us.”
“People share with people they trust.”
“Scars are meant to help us remember what we DON’T want to do again.”

Sales and Business
“No Salesman – No Business”
“Anyone can sell something… Do it day in and day out for years… successfully… then you can honestly hold the title of salesperson”
“There’s nothing “automatic” about true sales success.”
“Setting goals is great but in just doing that they’re worthless.”
“Best business relationships are founded on trust and respect. Without either there really is no relationship.”

Inspired
“I asked someone that had a terrible crisis in their life how they got through it? They said they drank until the pain lessened. I thought about this and unfortunately I believe many do this. I am thankful for the realization and knowledge that I can turn these trials over to God and He will help lessen them for me without the hangover and depression.”

I am going to achieve being the better person that I know I am.”

“No matter what happens to us we can achieve our moment of greatness whatever that means to each of us individually – Shouldn’t that be part of our life experience?”

“Don’t re-invent yourself. You are great as who you are. Focus and embrace your strengths and abilities. Success is open to all types of personalities.”

“You want happiness? Always work on intellectual, spiritual, and physical improvements in your life. Not something I came up with but I truly believe in. It takes a massive amount of focus from time to time. It doesn’t matter whether you’re perfect at any of them. Just that you continue to try and improve.”

“One of the great things about getting older is looking back at your crazy path in life, most times not making sense at all, and seeing the reason for it.”

“In a particularly low time in my life I had a complete stranger walk up to me outside my house. He said “You look like you are going through a tough time…” The Spirit was so strong that I don’t remember anything else he said. I do know what I felt. Wonderful feelings that to this day are as strong as they were then. I never saw that man again and have always thought of him as an angel. It still brings tears to my eyes as I write this so many years later.”
