My personal favorite is number 11 – “If you are not doing something which improves your livelihood, quality of life, or contributes to mankind in a positive way, you are probably doing something wrong.” Look over the other 10 and then decide which one(s) are your favorites?
Over the years I have observed and applied certain patterns of behavior which made a lot of sense to me. Some I obtained from wise and experienced people, some I created myself. Collectively I have found them to be very helpful in creating personal and financial success or at a minimum making life a little better. I share these with you in hopes of your being more successful throughout your life. I will explain these more in future posts or they may be found in my latest book, The New Era of Financial Success.
1. Over the long-term, an employer cannot afford to pay an employee more than the value he or she contributes.
2. Change nothing and nothing changes.
3. You can’t do anything about the past; all that matters is where you currently are and where you are going.
4. Your view of the possible will limit your likely outcomes, more than your abilities or resources.
5. The Power of Doing – The more you do, the more you learn. The more you learn, the more you can do.
6. The best of your peers are not your competition; they can be your future support system.
7. You need to consciously manage your energy level.
8. You need to prioritize the important things in your life.
9. You need to exercise prudent thinking (prudence) in all aspects of your life, especially finances.
10. When it’s important, document what you are going to do, do what you have documented, and then verify that it was done.
11. If you are not doing something which improves your livelihood, quality of life, or contributes to mankind in a positive way, you are probably doing something wrong.
