7 One of the best ways to persuade others is with your ears; By listening to them
8 Learn to listen Opportunity sometimes knocks very softly.
10 Success is often understood to mean achievement in workhow high we climb the career ladder. But that definition falls short.
11 For success includes all of life And far more than what we do, it describes what we are.
12 A successful person is not just productive but positive: Not just a go-getter but a giver.
13 A successful person seeks excellence Not only in the workplace but in social, emotional, intellectual, physical, and spiritual dimensions as well.
14 A Successful Person Nothing ranks higher than possessing a personal character that reflects time-tested virtues and values: Honesty, resiliency, perseverance, kindness, and the full slate of other essential traits.
15 Give every minute of your being 100 percent. Don t wait for things to happen to you. Go out and make things happen. If you re enthusiastic and positive, people will beat a path to your door.

43 CUSTOMERS Are a part of our business not outsiders.
44 CUSTOMERS Are the most important people in our business.
45 CUSTOMERS Do us a favor when they call we are not doing them a favor by serving them.
46 CUSTOMERS Are not some people to argue or match wits with.
47 CUSTOMERS Are deserving of the most courteous and attentive treatment we can give them.

49 Attitude The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me is more important than fact. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do.
50 It is more important than appearances, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company.a church.a home.
51 The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace that day.
52 We cannot change our past.we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable.
53 The only thing we can do is play on the one thing we have.. And that is our attitude.
54 I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.
55 And so it is with you We are in charge of our attitudes. Charles Swindoll
