“Denis Waitley’s motivation is more than money. His mission is to tell people they have more control over their destiny than they believe.”


“Waitley has a quieter, softer style than other merchants of inspiration. He preaches the importance of basic virtues in business – integrity, self-esteem, and responsibility.”


“Vince Lombardi power in a Bob Newhart personality!”


“Soft-spoken and low-key, but what he has to say is mentally exciting. Waitley has counseled Apollo astronauts, Superbowl athletes and Fortune 500 executives, as well as helped U. S. Olympic champions enhance their performance.”


“Denis Waitley is the man who aims folks in the direction of success. He stares you straight in the eye when you meet and while you speak. The two years he spoke to an NFL football team, they lost only one game and won the Super Bowl twice.”


“Interestingly, an American author, Denis Waitley has the best-selling business book in the Chinese language during the past decade.”


“No arm waving or super sell, yet when Denis Waitley breezed on the stage at many Australian management and sales conferences this year, he stole the show!”
