As you have figured out I love Investors Business Daily. These are their 10 Secrets to Success and have become my mantra. They spent years analyzing leaders and successful people and most have these 10 traits.

1. How You Think is Everything: Always be positive. Think success, not failure. Be aware of a negative environment.

2. Decide Upon Your True Dreams and Goals: Write down your specific goals and and develope a plan to reach them

3. Take Action: Goals are nothing without action. Don’t be afraid to get started. Just do it.

4. Never Stop Learning: Go back to school or read books. Get training and acquire skills.

5. Be Persistent and Work Hard: Success is a marathon. Not a sprint

6. Learn to Analyze Detail: Get all the facts, all the input. Learn from your mistakes

7. Focus on Your Time and Money: Don’t let other people or things distract you.

8. Don’t be afrain to Innovate, Be Different: Following the herd is a sure way to
mediocrity.

9. Deal and Communicate With People Effictively: No person is an island. Learn to understand and motivate others.

10. Be Honest and Dependable, Take Responsibility: Otherwise, Numbers 1-9 won’t matter
