expectations are the key to everything.
Walton # Ambition,
is only one boss. The customer. And he can fire everybody
in the company from the chairman on down, simply by spending
his money somewhere else.
Walton # Customers,
- I have
always been driven to buck the system, to innovate, to take
things beyond where they've been.
Walton # Innovative,
leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their
personnel. If people believe in themselves, it's amazing what
they can accomplish.
Walton # Leadership,
all working together; that's the secret. And we'll lower the
cost of living for everyone, not just in America, but we'll
give the world an opportunity to see what it's like to save
and have a better lifestyle, a better life for all. We're
proud of what we've accomplished ; we've just begun.
Walton # Teamwork,
Wal-Mart store should reflect the values of its customers
and support the vision they hold for their community.
Walton # Brands,
upstream. Go the other way. Ignore the conventional wisdom.
Walton # Different,
everything your associates do for the business. Nothing else
can quite substitute for a few well-chosen, well-timed, sincere
words of praise. They're absolutely free and worth a fortune.
Walton # Appretiation,
to your goals.
Walton # Goals,
your success and find humor in your failures. Dont take
yourself so seriously. Loosen up and everyone around you will
loosen up. Have fun and always show enthusiasm.
Walton # Success,
- I still
can't believe it was news that I get my hair cut at the barbershop.
Where else would I get it cut? Why do I drive a pickup truck?
What am I supposed to haul my dogs around in a Rolls-Royce?
Walton # Crazy,
Walton # Success
- I probably
have traveled and walked into more variety stores than anybody
in America. I am just trying to get ideas, any kind of ideas
that will help our company. Most of us don't invent ideas.
We take the best ideas from someone else.
Walton # America,
a lot more business out there in small town America than I
ever dreamed of.
