Stop Walking Your Way to Success: Run with the Runners! with Gerritt Cora

If we are looking for success, it is important to know that walking our way to it will not always do the trick. Too often, those who walk slowly in life get left behind by those who run, either figuratively or literally. To get ahead in life, it is important to “run with the runners”. 

We must recognize the value of surrounding ourselves with those who are always on the go and driven by success— those who are dedicated, goal-oriented, and are always looking for ways to improve and move forward in life. When we run, everything becomes clear again: the way ahead becomes obvious; each step becomes a choice; and our potential for growth becomes limitless.

In this episode, Daniel and Progressive Dental Marketing Managing Partner, Gerritt Cora share the key to improving our outcomes and accelerating our success. They also talk about the relationship between giving and abundance, how vision drives success, the importance of consistency, fighting through the fear, the importance of raising our standards, and redefining our identity to get to the next level.

"It's important to be cautious with your money but you also need to celebrate and raise your standard. Do things that are going to raise your standard of living— make that a necessity, not a want." —Gerritt Cora
