 21 Suggestions for Success
By H. Jackson Brown

1. Marry the right person.
This one decision will determine
90% of your happiness or misery.

2. Work at something you enjoy and
that's worthy of your time and talent.

3. Give people more than they
expect and do it cheerfully.

4. Become the most positive and
enthusiastic person you know.

5. Be forgiving of
yourself and others.

6. Be generous.

7. Have a grateful heart.

8. Persistence, persistence, persistence.

9. Discipline yourself to save money
on even the most modest salary.

10. Treat everyone you meet
like you want to be treated.

11. Commit yourself to constant improvement.

12. Commit yourself to quality.

13. Understand that happiness is not based on possessions, power or prestige, but on relationships with people you love and respect.

14. Be loyal.

15. Be honest.

16. Be a self-starter.

17. Be decisive even if it means
you'll sometimes be wrong.

18. Stop blaming others.
Take responsibility for every area of your life.

19. Be bold and courageous. When you look back on your life, you'll regret the things you didn't do more than the ones you did.

20. Take good care of those you love.

21. Don't do anything that wouldn't make your mom proud.
