How many of you have watched the movie- The Wolf of Wall Street? The epic movie starring Leonardo Decaprio and Margot Robbie. How many of you know that it’s based on a book that’s a memoir of Jordan Belfort, something he wrote right after he got out of prison?

Jordon Belfort has not let the prison time get to him, and despite that, he has acted as a consultant for over 50 public companies. The idea of Wolf of Wall Street came to him in prison. His story is that of redemption. He was on a high with his stock market manipulation for which he went to prison but since then he has written two hugely successful books and is now a world-renowned motivational speaker.

“The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it.”
― Jordan Belfort

According to him, persuasion goes a long way, getting people to say yes is the secret to getting everything you want out of life. That’s how he came up with the Straight Line System. He helps people by breaking barriers that hold them back from achieving success. All of these qualities definitely make him a strong contender for the Best Sales Trainer in the World.
