Always tell the truth.
Keep your promises.
Look people in the eye when you have a conversation.
Listen more and talk less. (I am still working on that one myself)
In business, men especially, respect a firm handshake.
Learn a trade.
Don't be afraid of physical work if you are up to it.
This one might sound off the wall, but search for business network groups like BNI
. Visit different chapters and offer
to be a substitute. Sometimes it's not what you know, but who you know.
If you decide to get married, spend plenty of time with their family, how he or she treats their parents and brothers/sisters is how you will be
treated. This advice is never wrong.
Get a dog, but take care of it!
A cat will do.
If you get a credit card only spend what you can pay off, in full, at the end of every month.
Your friends should laugh when you laugh and cry when you cry. If this isn't the case, dump them.
When people treat you poorly try and be kind, but don't be a push over.
Read, then read some more. Especially legal documents.
Treat people with respect, whether they are homeless or a bank president.
If you talk the talk you better be able to back it up. Remember though, that humility goes a long way.
This final thought will be really weird, but, if someone knocks on your door on a Saturday morning and wants to talk to you about the bible......
Keep an open mind, there are better days ahead.
