21 Suggestions for Success

I’m always looking for inspiration in the writings of others. These are some great suggestions from H. Jackson Brown Jr.

  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.

  1. Reblogged this on sherriemiranda1 and commented:
    No. 1 is absolutely correct! I was 49 when I finally married the right person (after 2 false starts) and that has made all the difference. These are all excellent pieces of advice.
    Peace, love & accepting good advice for all,
    Sherrie Miranda’s historically based, coming of age, Adventure novel “Secrets & Lies in El Salvador” is about an American girl in war-torn El Salvador:
    Her husband made a video for her novel. He wrote the song too. You can view it on YouTube under the same title as the book! 😉 <3

  2. I married the right person on my first try. Of course, I was 39 by then, and I had plenty of experience hanging out with the wrong ones. Great blog. Should read it at least once a week.
