Earlene’s 12 Habit Patterns of Winners

  1. Don’t condemn, criticize or complain… Think of ways to improve the situation. The big rewards are paid for finding the solution, not the difficulty.
  2. Show real, honest and hearty appreciation… let others know they are loved.
  3. Think good thoughts about other people… and yourself.
  4. Give before you get. Always give others a reason to agree with you before asking anything of them. (If there were a way that YOU…)
  5. Smile often… it generates enthusiasm, friendliness and goodwill.
  6. Remember names. A person’s name is the sweetest, most important sound he hears and instantly captures his attention each time it is used.
  7. Be an effective communicator by listening. Encourage others to talk about themselves by asking questions. (When, Where, Who, What, How, WHY?)
  8. Think, Act and Look happy and successful… and you will begin to think, feel, and actually become HAPPY and SUCCESSFUL.
  9. Never engage in worry conversations or participate in gossip sessions.
  10. Always greet others with a positive, cheerful statement… not the question, “How are you?”
  11. Respond to another’s question, “How are you?” with an enthusiastic, meaningful “TERRIFIC!”
  12. Look for and expect GOOD things to happen to you… inquire of others: “What GOOD things are happening with you today?”

    Dear Earline, I first learned about Executive Development Systems over thirty years ago from a friend. I have used the 12 habits as I first heard them as a method of improving your memory. They are great! Imagine my excitement when I goggled “Executive Development Systems” and found you again! I am now on your mailing list and look forward to many years of positive inspiration.
    Thanks so much to you and Ed and everyone there.
