The Book – Positive Impact
The book, Positive Impact was written by Gregory Scott Reid and the late Charlie “Tremendous” Jones.
Originally, I purchased this book when I was a part of network marketing group but never really picked it up till a few years ago.
The book is not very long and it usually takes under an hour to read. The core values in this book teach many great lessons that can be used to influence greatness in others and yourself.
The story is about the positive impact a mentor can have in business, leadership and in personal life. The two main characters are Mr. Cam, a business owner, and John Bishop, an executive VP who has been very successful over the last few years.
John seeks guidance to take his current leadership, to a new level so he can better relate to his staff. Want to learn how to better communicate with your staff? Check out this post.
Chapter 01 – Treat Everyone Equally
- Everything I share with you, you must share with at least one other person. This helps spread knowledge and positive vibes to others.
- The most important think you can do is take time to talk to people. When people talk, you need to actively listen to them. This is one of the principle in the book, How to Win Friends and Influence People.
- The words beneath your name, on your stationary, really don’t matter. It’s is your character that matter. How you carry yourself, not your title or position.

- The best leaders are those who are humble, care about others and take a genuine interest in people around them.

Chapter 03 – Be A Star
- Leaders make the best of their situations by having fun while they work.
- When someone starts a sentence with, ‘It’s not,’ they are usually trying to tell you, ‘It is.’
- When someone starts a sentence with, ‘I don’t,’ they are usually trying to tell you, ‘I do.’
- Master listening to what people are telling you, not just what they are saying to you. Read between the lines.

- The greatest success you’ll know comes from helping others grow, change and succeed.
Chapter 05 – A Positive Attitude Gets Results
- Remember, a positive attitude will not get the desired results every time. You will experience failure. A negative attitude will also not get you the desired results. It is your choice.
- A positive attitude will not win you the game but focusing on these 12 steps can help.
- Push through all adversities and setbacks you experience. Success is just on the other side of that.
- Unfortunately, we to many of us talk ourselves into believing ‘it’s’ never going to work for us. We tell ourselves the challenge is too great. We need to remember no challenge is too great for us.
Chapter 06 – It Doesn’t Matter Who Gets The Credit
- There is no limit to what a man or women can accomplish as long they do not care about who gets the credit for it.

- The secret to happiness is having all the parts of your life in order – physical, spiritual, emotional, mental and financial.
- Wake up and live the life you love. Stop living a life you are not happy living.
- Most people in business think – what is the least I can pay to succeed. Good leaders understand to have positive impact on others they must pay the full price.
- Money comes to you when you focus on providing value to others and doing what you love to do. Money will chase you, do not chase money. This is the secret of the greatest salesman in the world.

- Always maintain a positive, solutions-searching attitude and you will find soon nothing will bother you.
- Live your life by the words you choose to use. Be an example and lead by that example.
- Do the hardest things on your list first. The rest will be easier as you cross items off.
