Hear Me Now and Believe Me Later

The more popular you get, the more requests and opportunities will come your way. But you have to choose wisely…and avoid going after something you know is wrong.

  • Write down your personal beliefs and allow those to make all decisions.
  • If a request does not fit your belief system, it is ruled out. You don’t have to think about it.
  • Develop power of clarity. State out your main objective. If anything gets in the way of that objective, do not participate in it.
  • List all the things that will get in the way of your goal, and then avoid them.
  • If someone lies to you once, he’ll lie to you a thousand times. Lying is for thieves and cowards.
  • “In God We Trust, all others require data.”
  • Do not hesitate to cut ties immediately with the wrong partner.
  • People also lie more on the Internet. Demand face to face meetings for important details.
  • Ask for references.
  • Get to know someone well before doing business with them.
  • Have strict and total respect for other people’s property.
  • If possible, use other people as motivation to improve your results/motivation.
  • Surround yourself with people who are better than you…they will bring out the best in you.
  • No stealing. No dirty tricks. No sabotage. Fair competition. And try to find ways to cooperate instead of competing.
  • Follow the golden rule. Help others. The more they succeed, the more you succeed.
  • Don’t hold anything back.
  • Surround yourself with people who are better than you…they will bring out the best in you.
  • Producing results is more important than proving you’re right. To get things done, try to understand other’s frames of references, points of view, needs, and wants. Then determine what is honest, fair, effective and rational…and act accordingly.
