Super successful people get plenty of sleep. Bob Hope used to nap for 5 minutes in the middle of the day, often while filming a scene for one of his movies.

 

Back To Nature

Successful people get out of the house and take refreshing walks in the woods, communing with nature. Just last week a successful person ran 3 miles in nature, a large brown bear chasing him the whole way.

 

Fit and Healthy

You can’t be successful if you are always sideline with injuries. Tape it up and get back in the game, you wuss.

The swashbuckling loner hero is a romantic notion, but the truth is successful people work well with teams. It also helps to have someone to blame when things go south.

If you don’t have your ducks in a row, you can never be a success. On the other hand, if you are neatness-obsessed dweeb who counts his socks, you won’t have any friends.

 

Strong Support System

Successful people have a network of loved ones and work contacts they rely on for support. They only get in trouble if their loved ones catch them in the act with their work contacts.

 

Money Wise

Successful people are careful with their money. You better be careful with your money when it took you 20 months to plan a 15-minute bank heist.
