Success for the Average Man - Woman
No matter what you goal is, authorities say there are thirteen categories for people's needs: Career, Health, Security, Courage, Personality, Happiness, Self Improvement, Life Direction, Self Discipline, Love, Responsibility, Friendship and Aging Gracefully.
No matter what your goal is, the truest measure of success is money. It is very helpful and often absolutely necessary for achieving your goals and doing good, for doing everything you want. Sometimes it means the difference between Life and Death.
The Following are more wise sayings, condensed wisdom of the ages. Every one has a definite purpose. They also command action or suggest action. They all say work, work, work and then some more work. It isn't enough to just read wise sayings, you must convert them into habits. They must become automatic, subconscious.
Follow the example of Benjamin Franklin's Master Key to Personal Power. He liked to read history and Biographies. He studied the lives of successful people. He found they all had thirteen traits. He began to cultivate these traits. He tried and tried unsuccessfully. Then he came across one of the wise sayings of the ages, "To be great, concentrate."
He wrote and defined each trait in his own words. He wrote and re-wrote until what he had to do was clear in his mind. He practiced performing some action for his first trait. The following week second action for second trait. Soon his traits became habits in Thirteen weeks.
Now start reading some of the wise sayings of the ages and put them into practice one at a time.

Never be without a pencil and paper to catch unexpected, but useful tips, facts and ideas.
Cut out all non-essentials.
