Habit #1 - Keep An Open Mind

Someone once said, "A closed mind is about as good as your parachute opening on the second bounce!"


Habit #2 - Look For The Good

Remember that lovely saying, "Every cloud has a silver lining!"


Habit #3 - Be Present

"The greatest gift you can give someone is your time, your attention, your love, your concern." – Joel Osteen


Habit #4 - Be Aware of Projection and Reflection

There are two things that can occur in our interactions with others—reflection and projection. Reflection is when experiences reflect back to us from others that show us aspects of ourselves, and projection is where we externalise aspects of ourselves onto others that aren't actually them


Habit #5 - Be Grateful

“Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.”

– Henry Ward Beecher.


Habit #6 - Play To Your Strengths

“Success is achieved by developing our strengths, not by eliminating our weaknesses.” ― Marilyn Von Savant


Habit #7 - Speeding Up By Slowing Down

Special Forces operators have a slogan when it comes to urban combat: “Slow is smooth. Smooth is fast.” You can be efficient, but are you effective?


Habit #8 - Remove The Baggage

Imagine the effort of carrying around a 50kg rucksack all the time! Emotional baggage feels the same! “Just because you have baggage doesn't mean you have to lug it around.” ― Richie Norton


Habit #9 - Point of Choice

"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom." Viktor E. Frankl


Habit #10 - Compliment People

When you compliment people it's a win win situation, they feel good and you feel good. Why wouldn't you want to do that?


Habit #11 - Remove Worry

“If you can't sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there worrying. It's the worry that gets you, not the lack of sleep.” – Dale Carnegie


Habit #12 - Develop The Customer Habit

Treat every customer as the only one, they never will be.
