20 Rules For Winners.

  1. Never stop working on the details. They eventually matter.
  2. Pretend like someone is always watching you. They usually are.
  3. Never let small successes get in the way of learning something new. You’ll need it later.
  4. Spend time developing a skill. Spend even more time developing will. You need it more.
  5. Apologize sincerely. The faster the better.
  6. Live outraged or blissful. Anything in the middle is just mediocrity.
  7. Learn how to take the pain of progress. You’re going to get banged up along the way.
  8. Be willing to do whatever it takes to be successful. That’s what it takes.
  9. Ignore what you “should” be doing and do it your way. It’s your life after all.
  10. Be deliberately grateful. It will change your outlook for the better.
  11. Obsess about the possibility you could be even more amazing. And you will be.
  12. Dig deep. Get emotional about your goals. You need that fuel to win.
  13. Surround yourself with people who are better than you at what you want to be the best at.
  14. Do one thing that matters each day. It adds up to something awesome over time.
  15. Avoid negative people. At all costs. Even if they are family or friends.
  16. Read. Read. Read. Read. Read… Discover something awesome to make your life better.
  17. Get help. Invest in the best help you can afford and do what they say. It matters.
  18. Stop saying “I can’t” and “I shouldn’t” or “I don’t feel like it”. Just get it done.
  19. Don’t confuse awards with winning. The real reward happens before awards are handed out.
  20. Stay fit — financially, physically, and mentally. Always be ready to be a hero.

  1. I know when I did things “my way” I failed, because I didn’t have the proper thinking and mindset of winners. Numbers 13, 16, and 17 are huge for having success. We call it “learning from people who have the results you want in life.” I understand not being conformed to the crowd and not giving into the pressure of the masses, but I still would rather follow someone with the fruit on the tree, someone I want to emulate, than do it simply “my way.” (It’s probably semantics, as ultimately I’m making my own choices of who to follow and learn from, such as you, Dan).

      1. We can learn what to do and what not to do. But as Dale Carnegie said, everyone is our superior in some way. But again, I choose to learn from people with proven results. That’s why I just lent out your book to a business partner yesterday. Keep rockin’ on!
