freedom and control. Put your money to work
for you; learn about money and investments.
Develop and maintain a strong network
hifore you need it. Seek out opportunities to
meet people, and take a sincere interest in the
people you meet. Get to know people in your
company and industry. Join a professional
organization in which you have an interest.
Attend a lecture, give a talk, write an article,
volunteer in your community. Develop an
attitude of giving rather than getting.
Operate out of integrity. Set standards for
yourself and commit to living by them. Get to
know your values. Are your head, heart and
hands in alignment? Get a clear picture of
what you want for your life, and go after it.
Be highly respected.
Develop a sense of optimism, a belief in a
positive future. Even if you are not naturally
optimistic, you can learn to put a positive spin
on your life. Make a habit of noticing things
that go well, things you are happy about,
things for which you are thankful. By focusing on the good things you can take the sting
out of those that didn't go as you planned.
Also be aware of negative self-talk, which can
severely limit your ability to reach your goals.
Expect more. Be open to new opportunities
that come your way. Don't limit yourself to one
outcome. Embrace the probability and possibility
of success. Follow through on what you need
to do to make your dreams real. The next
best thing may be just around the corner.•
