To be likeable, Carnegie shares some earth-shattering recommendations:
In 1936, the world didn’t have computers. There were no tweets, pins or Facebook posts. Heck, the first chocolate chip cookie wasn’t even developed until 1938. (A world without Grandma’s cookie…
Better Yet, buy the classic book here: How To Win Friends and Influence People
In keeping with the time of year to be thankful, reflective and to look ahead to a bright future, I received the e-mail below just before Thanksgiving from Michael Dalton Johnson, author of the book Rules of the Hunt. I subscribe to his mailing list from his website: www.SalesDog.com
I have read Rules of the Hunt at least three times cover-to-cover now and it is more useful every read. I highly recommend it! Buy it for yourself, buy it for your kids and family, your best friend, your employees…just buy it
It is jam-packed with great info like the content of the email (which I have printed and put into my planner, btw) I received below:
|This rock solid advice is a thoughtful pass along for friends and family that will be remembered. It was excerpted from my book Rules of the Hunt and has gone viral on the Internet twice. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving.|

Subject: Are You Exploiting Your Natural Talents?
Have you ever wondered how you can become more satisfied in life – how you can enjoy life more than ever? Brian Tracy – Success Expert, Best-Selling Author and Coach – has developed a special gift to help you discover how. But first, I want to share with you one of Brian’s favorite quotes from Benjamin Franklin:
“Do you value life? Then waste not time, for that is the stuff of which life is made.”
You see, time is the real currency of life. Anything you obtain in life can be valued by how much time you’ve spent to acquire it.
Only by discovering your innate strengths…by developing them…exploiting them to their highest degree–can you ever fully realize the greatest amount of satisfaction and enjoyment in everything you do.

Three Rules for Turning Stress Into Success
1. Accept the Unchangeable – Everything that has happened in your life to this minute is unchangeable. It’s history. The greatest waste of energy is in looking back at missed opportunities, lamenting past events, grudge collecting, getting even, harboring ill will, and any vengeful thinking. Success is the only acceptable form of revenge. By forgiving your trespassers, you become free to concentrate on going forward with your life and succeeding in spite of your detractors. You will live a rewarding and fulfilling life.
Your enemies, on the other hand, will forever wonder how you went on to become so successful without them and in the shadow of their doubts.
Write down on a sheet of paper things that happened in the past that bother you. Now crumple the paper into a ball and throw it at the computer screen. This symbolizes letting go of past misfortunes.
2. Change the Changeable – What you can change is your reaction to what others say and do. And you can control your own thoughts and actions by dwelling on desired results instead of the penalties of failure. The only real control you have in life is that of your immediate thought and action. Since most of what we do is a reflex, subconscious habit, it is wise not to act on emotional impulse. In personal relations, it is better to wait a moment until reason has the opportunity to compete with your emotions.
Write down in your diary one thing you will do tomorrow to help you relax more during and after a stressful day.
3. Avoid the Unacceptable – Go out of your way to get out of the way of potentially dangerous behaviors and environments. When people tailgate you on the freeway, change lanes. If they follow you at night, drive to a well-lighted public place.
When there are loud, obnoxious people next to you at a restaurant or club, change tables, or locations. Also, be cautious of personal relationships developed via the Internet. With the massive number of individuals surfing the net, the number of predators increases in like proportion. Always be on the alert for potentially dangerous situations involving your health, personal safety, financial speculation and emotional relationships.
What is one unacceptable behavior you have or allow others to do to you that you will avoid starting tomorrow? Example: The way you drive, being around negative people, walking down dark streets alone late at night, etc.
