Being a Winner - Ten Tips for Success

Have you ever thought about how you want to live, and who you want to become? Everyone has different values and puts them in different order of priority, so what works for others may not be your own recipe for success.

To remind yourself about what your life is all about, I recommend taking the time to write down ten principles that you consider most important. It is easy to get off-track at times, but if you keep your personal values in sight it is much easier live by them. (After all, what is the point in getting out of bed every day if not to live a life of value?).

Selecting only ten principles is certainly difficult, but well worth doing. Mine are clearly visible from my computer where I work every day. Why don't you do the same?
