Key Quotes:

  • “I’ve figured out how to succeed at a lot of things. And a lot of people can’t succeed because they’re afraid to fail. And I’ve never been afraid to fail and learn from that failure. You try it, you fail, you learn, you try something else, you fail, you learn, until you figure out what works. Just by the power of elimination, you’re left with what works versus just throwing a whole bunch of stuff at it.” – Dr. Billy Williams, Ph.D.
  • “Only a fool thinks they’re the smartest person in the room. And I mean, that’s just not the way it works. You can learn from anybody about anything.” – Dr. Billy Williams, Ph.D.
  • “Never rely on self-discipline in your business, it will always fail you. Because self-discipline is nothing more than a form of emotion. It’s tied to your emotions. Think of it as a diet. Everybody that’s on a diet does great, as long as they’re not hungry.” – Dr. Billy Williams, Ph.D.
