The Most Successful People Do



PICK FIGHTS to test others' resolve in their own beliefs.

In business you can't turn the reins to someone who does't know how to defend their own ideas and plans.



ISOLATE YOURSELF to reenergize.

If you recharge when by yourself,you need to seek out isolation from time to time.



PURPOSEFULLY OFFEND

Sometimes the only way to get someones' attention is to call him or her out.



HYPER SELF-CRITICAL of your own standards and choices.





PEACOCK

Don't give others the option not to see you or hear your message.



REPEAT MISTAKES enough times until you really learn the lessons.

We hardly ever learn anything truly worthwhile one try.



EXPECT NOTHING in return for helping your peers.

Karma points are dispersed unexpectedly over decades, not in scorecard of dollars.



QUIT those endeavors you'll never win. and take a new swing at the plate.

Don't double down on a losing effort by not knowing when to walk away.



PLAT POSSUM with your competitors.

Don't be so eager to show off your strengths until it's the perfect time to strike.



GET C'S INSTEAD OF A'S if you excel in non-traditional environments(like entrepreneurs)& can justify the opportunity cast of your time.



BECOME INDIFFERENT TO SLIGHTS because time and energy are too valuable yo waste on petty matters.



SELF SABOTAGE yourself when you find yourself mired in complacency.

Don't ever get too comfortable with the status quo, always be willing to blow it up and start all over again to truly create something better.



ABSTAIN FROM WORK which others can do for you.

Delegate every task that others can do 80% as well as you, and focus on those items that only you can achieve that have big payoffs.



PLOT&SCHEME your next couple moves ahead.

Know where you're going far in advance of making your first move.



UNDERESTIMATE DEMAND for your product and services.

Don't ever assume people want what you got. and you'll have the appropriate amount of urgency and hustle to validate what you're trying to achieve.
