What Matters Most to Positive Feelings? R-E-S-P-E-C-T

A vast study of people in 158 countries shows that among the nonmaterial personal needs of respect, autonomy, and social support, respect is the strongest predictor of positive feelings, say Weiting Ng of SIM University in Singapore and Ed Diener of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the Gallup Organization. In the survey of 838,151 people, respect levels were gauged through respondents’ answers to the question of whether they had been “treated with respect” the previous day.

The One Question Successful Business Owners Always Ask Themselves

You’re thinking perhaps it has something to do with marketing, competition, cash flow or strategy. Yes, the one question successful business owners ask is about all that. And yet it’s also about none of that. The one simple question successful business owners are always asking is this: Who will do it for me? 

These words are a life-altering discovery. This is what separates the successful business owners I know from the ones that never win. They ask, Who will do it for me? These are not lazy people. They are not avoiding responsibilities. They are managers and leaders. And they are successful.

"The true worth of a man is to be measured by the objects he pursues."

Stop obsessing about money.
While it sounds counterintuitive, maintaining a laser-like focus on how much you make distracts you from doing the things that truly contribute to building and growing wealth. So shift your perspective.

"See money not as the primary goal but as a by-product of doing the right things."
