“In order for you to be the BEST you can be for others, first you must be the BEST for yourself.”

If you want to be the best salesperson, first you must be the best person. If you want to be the best dad or mom, first you must be the best person you can for yourself. When you achieve best for yourself, then and only then can you be at your best for others. I know it has a selfish twinge to it, but if you think about it long enough you will come to realize that your short comings in all of your endeavors stem from the fact you’re not being the best person you can be first.

-Jeffrey Gitomer, The Little Red Book of Selling
