How a Sandwhich Shop Can Teach You to Live a Prosperous Life

Share This

I was in Lenny’s Sub Shop the other day ordering lunch when I came across their company’s core values. After a quick read, I realized that their core values are things that apply to us as individuals.

We all should live honest and respectful lives, and be committed to all that we do. The more of these values we apply to ourselves, the more we can live a prosperous life. Here they are, personalized:


Be honest in everything you do.

Accept responsibility and accountability.

If you fail to keep your word, correct it promptly.

Ask questions that you don’t understand.

Address issues directly with those involved.

Don’t say things about people you wouldn’t say to them.


Treat others as you would like to be treated.

Speak respectfully.

Listen intently.

Respond timely.

Disagree agreeably and respect the views of others.


Maintain an undying passion for your brand.

Focus on solutions and face challenges in a positive way.

Satisfy those you serve.

Strive for excellence in innovation.

Try to have fun along the way.

Life a Prosperous Life

Some of my best business contacts have come from adopting the values above.

If you adopt these values and apply them in all of your interactions with others, you will definitely be recognized as a positive person who want nothing but the best for others.

All of these interactions will leave positive impressions of you.

When this is accomplished, people will begin referring you to their friends and business associates.

Most importantly, as it was stated, “try to have fun along the way.”

People love smiling and having fun. Your positive and fun impression will attract others upon meeting you and when reconnecting.

All of these values combined will lead to better connections, and more opportunities to market and brand yourself in the future.
