What Turns Ordinary People Into Superstars

I love sports, and as a sales and leadership expert, I find there are a lot of lessons on the field that apply to sales. As a Yankees fan, one player in particular stands out to me, and it’s not Mickey Mantle —one of the Yankees’ most revered players of all time. I admit he had incredible raw power and skill, but because of his drinking and carousing, he didn’t use that raw talent to its full potential. I think Mickey Mantle probably only achieved 70 percent of what he could have in life. Not all of us are blessed with such raw talent, but we all have the potential to achieve greatness the way Don Mattingly did.
