You ever heard the old addage, you reap what you sow? Well it's true.
If you don't invest in relationships, over time you will find yourself without relationships, or at least with little in common with those that you care about.
If you constantly spew out negative language, people will evenutally ignore you, move on, or hit the mute button.
If you spend the time carefully researching and developing products and services, you are bound to find one that's a homerun.
If you treat customers with care and prioritize their needs, you will find yourself with a plethora of brand ambassadors.
Think about it, how hard is it to take the extra time to give of yourself, or to do something the right way the first time? In most circumstances and situations, it's not that difficult.
You have a lot control over the quality of investment you make, or the lack thereof.
