Remember that your success is influenced by your connections. Family, co-workers, mentors, and friends are all part of your success. Make sure to nurture those relationships in a positive way.
Don't do something because that is how it has always been done. Often times it is the exceptions to the rules that create the winners.
This is a key factor in your success. Make sure you look your best and that you are being heard. You are what others perceive you to be, make sure they perceive you as you intended.
