Advice from Hal
“In business it is too easy to fool ourselves and believe that achieving some goal will make us happy.”
“Keeping your word is the cornerstone to personal and professional success in life. Keeping your word builds self-confidence and trust. Be impeccable about keeping small promises, and eventually you know you can manifest anything you commit to.”
“If you want what’s best for the customer, and your well-being doesn’t depend on the sale, selling is easy.”
“A company vision sustains, inspires, and empowers the business by giving work meaning and providing it with direction and definition. The culture, the character, and purpose of a business are rooted in its underlying vision.”
“Business is about building effective relationships with all its stakeholders — employees, suppliers, partners, lenders, customers, the community.”
“Let go of your attachment to money and attract it by donating monthly, even if you think you can’t afford it.”
“Listen to your inner voice for powerful and effective decision-making. Go inside. Feel centered and knowing. Allow the answer to come.”
“For success, customers must believe your promise about the product; employees must believe your word; partners, suppliers, and lenders must trust you.
“Start with the goal and make an unshakeable commitment to achieve it. Success comes from committing to an outcome followed by the clarity and strength of character to realize it.”
Hal spent the late 60’s and early 70’s experimenting, protesting, and learning at the University of Wisconsin, and then hitchhiking through Europe and North Africa.
