95. Guard your Emotions
Keeping emotions in check is not always an easy task. You will have
times of disappointment that will require you to react with integrity.
You may feel like crying and feel as though your world has just ended.
Keep telling yourself that it has not ended and you will just have to
make some adjustments in your plan. Never allow anger to be a
response. You never know the trickle down effect of that anger and how
it could permanently damage your reputation.
96. Be Nice
Study after study has shown that people with pleasing personalities
have an easier time reaching success. Now only are they more
levelheaded in handling the business but they also draw people around
them that are eager and willing to help. In fact, in addition to being
pleasing, be polite, show true interest, and have a great sense of

Habits, regardless of size or nature, can be exceptionally difficult to
break. This will take a lot of effort but you can do it. Unfortunately,
poor habits can be the one aspect of your behavior that could be the
obstacle to your success. If you have a habit of sniffling or chewing
your nails when you get nervous or saying demeaning or offensive
things as a way of trying to control, to be successful, whether on a
personal or business level, you have to stop.
98. Improve Efficiency
You will want to develop your potential to its fullest. The more efficient
you can become the better job you will do. Be efficient with your time
by not procrastinating and efficient with your effort by staying focused.
99. Have Balance in your Life

sunny, and warm. The two of you are floating along without a care in
the world. Suddenly, ripples of water start rocking the canoe and
without proper balance, both of you, along with all your belongings, are
thrown into the cold water. It is the same when you strive for success.
You have to find balance not only for yourself but also for others around
you. Balance means providing time away from work for pleasure,
working extra hours when required, knowing when a new direction is

When people start into the process of being successful, whether for
personal growth or starting a business, they may start by incorporating
fun, but within a very short time, they realize it is hard work and the fun
simply falls by the wayside. If you look at some of the most successful
people in the world such as Sam Walton, Oprah Winphrey, or Ross
Perot, you will find common threads that run between all of them. First,
they started with nothing; second, they are all multi-millionaires many
times over, and third, they have fun. They enjoy life, the people around
them, and even find enjoyment in the challenges. This one element is
often forgotten. This is a crucial element for success and should be a
part of your plan.
101. Face your Weaknesses
The best way to get better at anything and to be successful is to face
the weaknesses we all possess. Everyone has weaknesses and in order
to be better, think clear, act appropriately, and succeed, you have to
identify the areas you need to improve on and then take action to turn
your weaknesses into strengths.
