Yesterday, on Smashing The Plateau, Scott Smith discussed how finding focus can make you overcome obstacles and challenges in life and in business.
Below are some of his biggest influences:
1) Zig Ziglar and Brian Tracy I was big into them.
They were early influences for me.
2) Tony Robbins
He probably had the biggest impact on me in terms of being a direct influence. He was a messenger that worked for me, and because of what he was doing, I stepped into the world of what I’m doing now.
3) My Mom, Elizabeth
She is a big advisor for me. She’s what I call the most positive/negative person I’ve ever known. She really sees things in a crazy way but it always comes back around to wise advice.
4) My wife, Joi, my late wife, Sheryl, and my daughter, Carlyn
I am grateful to the women in my life. I take a lot of advice from them, and I lean on them to ground me and keep me in my place.
