Respect people – it pays off well.
Learn to say ‘NO’.
Some people love to rant, and come to you with all sorts of problems. They really don’t want a solution from you. They are only looking for someone to rant to. So identify such people early in the game. And don’t waste your time coming up with innovative solutions to their never ending problems.
If someone is being nice to you – think again. We don’t live in a world where people offer help. Don’t get fooled by the sweet talk. People are not being mean; they are just covering their ass.
Be self sufficient.
It is OK to say ‘I don’t know’. As long as you supplement it by saying, “But I can learn.”
Don’t trust everyone. They don’t owe you a dime.
Don’t underestimate people.
Take a stand. And if you are right and certain, then stick to it.
Don’t wait. Move ahead… Life is short and there is a lot to accomplish. If people falter, that does not mean you become like them. Take the lead, and set an example.
