Excerpts from the Chapter on CONFIDENCE, PASSION & HARD WORK:
Confidence makes you courageous to face every obstacle, it makes you more enthusiastic about your work, confidence makes you inspire, motivate and mentor others, it gives you a clear vision & a goal, it makes you capable of influencing others with their communication. Confidence gives you the trust and belief in your capabilities and actions.
Do you know? The only actor in the history of US Cinema to have starred in a box office number one film across six consecutive decades was once homeless and broke.
We are talking of the heartthrob of millions of people, Sylvester Stallone! His journey from being broke to a worldwide superstar is all about believing in himself, his passion, his confidence, persistence and hard work.
His struggles started since his birth, the doctors severed a nerve in his face when he was born leaving him partially paralyzed with slurred speech. He struggled at school as he was bullied and because of which he got into fights and trouble. He was expelled from 14 schools.
For more fascinating tips wait for the launch this Women’s Day!
‘The Greatest Salespeople’ is being released by Daily Indian Media and comes right after the success of their last book, ‘2047’ by IIPM’s Dr. Arindam Chaudhuri.
