This list is still a work in progress. Things I picked up from reading books, articles, and personal experiences.

  1. Surround yourself by other highly successful people. Learn from them.
  2. Continuous Learning. Never stop learning. Keep learning, growing, and improving.
  3. Always ask “why”. “The people who knows how will always have a job but the person who knows why will always. be the boss”.
  4. Sees problems and challenges as opportunities.
  5. Spirit and passion driven. Love what they do.
  6. Believes success is driving by yourself not others. “I am responsible for my results”.
  7. Critical Thinking. Negative Thinking -> Positive Thinking -> Critical Thinking. Does not let emotion get in the way.
  8. Take something complicated and make it simple.
  9. Think big.
  10. Learn to sell and market yourself.
  11. Have competence and follow through with excellence. Say it, plan it, and do it. See what needs to happen, make it happen, and make it happen when it really counts.
  12. Always go the extra mile. Good enough is never good enough.
  13. Have courage. “It’s doing what you are afraid to do. It’s having the power to let go of the familiar, and forge ahead into new territory”.
