Steve Sapato excels at helping people reach their goals. “That’s one of the best things you can ever do,” he says, “is find out you change somebody’s life.” In this episode, he shares his strategies for achieving goals.
Steve Sapato’s Big Tip: If you want to develop your abilities, says Sapato, “read, read, read, listen, listen, listen.” He believes that “you will always be exactly who you are except for three things: And that’s the books you read, the things you listen to, and the people you associate with. And if you want to become better at something, then you have to read and listen and associate with the people who epitomize that type of style that you’re looking for.”
