This list of 10 Secrets to Success was originally published in Investor's Business Daily in the early 200's. It has been hidden for years, only found a little while ago in the mess of my office.
Always be positive. Think success, not failure. Beware of negative environments.
Write down your specific goals and develop a plan to reach them.
Goals are nothing without action. Don't be afraid to get started. Just do it.
Go back to school or read books. Get training and acquire skills
Success is a marathon, not a sprint. Never give up.
Get all the facts, all the input. Learn from your mistakes.
Don't let other people or things distract you
Following the herd is a sure way to mediocrity
No person is an island. Lean to understand and motivate others
Otherwise, number 1 through 9 won't matter at all
