There is 2 or 3 of these that I have to work on.. otherwise, amazingly, I do the others... And to think I thought I didn't do that many things right....

"Ten Commandments of Getting Ahead in Life"

1. Speak to People.
Even if you do not know their names. Nothing is as nice as a cheerful word of greeting.

2. Smile at People.
It takes 72 muscles to frown and only 14 to smile. Your smile is one of your finest assets. Use It!

3. Call People by Name.
The sweetest music to anyone's ears is the sound of his/her own name.

4. Be Friendly and Helpful.
If you want have friends, *be* one.

5. Be Genuinely Interested in People.
If you try, you can like everybody, and everybody will like you.

6. Seek Out the Little People.
Do not limit yourself to a few friends when there so many likable people around you.

7. Be Generous with Praise.
And cautious with criticism. Who among us does not need the understanding and tolerance of all our friends.

8. Be Considerate of the Feelings of Others.
Usually there are three sides to a controversy - yours, the other person's, and the right one.

9. Be Alert to give Service.
What we do for others counts most in life.

10. Add to this a Good Sense of Humor...
A generous dose of patience, a dash of humility, and you will receive many-fold blessings.
