Sam Walton was one of the most successful entrepreneurs of our time. He was also a self-made man. Starting from scratch, with a singularity of focus, he built Wal-Mart into the largest and most successful company in the world. As a continuous learner, Walton was committed to constantly increasing his own knowledge. He challenged existing business theories and paradigms by developing and implementing a new set of rules and used this new information to build and improve every aspect of Wal-Mart. During his career, Walton—who associates respectfully referred to as "Mr. Sam"—developed a list of what he considered the most important rules for entrepreneurial success. As far as he was concerned, there were ten key result areas that he considered pivotal to his own success. In The 10 Rules of Sam Walton, author Michael Bergdahl offers you an insider's perspective of Mr. Sam's genius, by revealing the story behind the self-professed rules Walton embraced in order to become successful. Entwined in each of these rules are reoccurring themes of innovation, common sense, hard work, the power of positive thinking, and how to treat people.

High Expectations Are The Key To Everything "This book isn't about how to bring out the best in others; It's about how to bring out the best in YOU!" Each and every one of us deals with challenges in our lives that interfere with the achievement of our goals. Why is it that some people always seem to land on their feet, while others fall down crippled under the weight of life's obstacles? Why do you think one average person experiences great success in life, while another average person doesn't? In almost all cases both individuals started out with similar capabilities, talent, and resources. So what is the difference? I believe those who succeed expect nothing less than success; they approach problems as opportunities, they have high expectations, and they triumph! They are driven by a can-do attitude. They begin every challenge they face with the belief they will succeed in the end. In this inspirational book, Michael Bergdahl will explain how he and his wife Sheryl overcame adversity and achieved their goals in life; he'll explain how they did it and how others can do it too. This Book Is About Self-Motivation: How YOU Can Overcome Life's Challenges How YOU Can Control Your Own Destiny How YOU Can Reach Your Full Potential
