"Every day of your life you are in the presence of the only source of success, happiness, and achievement there is - some other person, or persons. If you meet enough of these persons and convince enough of them that they should "buy" you, your ideas, or your enterprises, you will be successful. If you fall down on the job of winning their acceptance, confidence, and support, you will fail. The shortest definition of, and recipe for, success I ever saw consisted of just three words: "Success is people." Almost anyone you talk to will agree with this definition and philosophy. Yet in spite of such widespread recognition of the statement, the blankest areas in the lives of most persons is made up of - people."
