Practice does make as close to perfect as you can get in the real world. Every day you set out and focus on mastering good habits to change your life, shape you into the person you are striving to become. Never allow anything or anyone to cloud your judgment, makes smart, calculated decisions in every situation. Thinking about getting married? Make sure to look at all the benefits and obstacles you will face. Children are not a toy that you can put on the shelves when you don't feel like playing with them anymore. If you decide to have, a child makes sure you gave thought it through. The process of buying a home, moving to a new location is new country, state, changing life habits like adapting to new religions are stressful and overwhelming. Remember we talk a little about assets and what they mean? You can now use those assets to continue to add value to your life. When I look at people and objects now I always think “ is this going to cost me money or make me money?” Thinking in such a manner may seem harsh, but stop and look at the facts first. A relationship should not just cost you time and money; you have to get something out of it too, so be careful about how you deal with friends and family.
Every day is a new opportunity to change your life for the better. With each improvement make sure you are always taking a step forward. Working to improve your life mean your income will grow, so improve your social standing as well. When you achieve a higher status in life, start networking with the social circle you want to be part off. Scheduling a power lunch with important business partners are a great idea. Take your family to special events and introduce them to what you do and the people you work with. Making new friends can be tricky sometimes, make sure your new friends are not around just for the benefits they can get off of you. It is important that people in your life can enjoy your current hobbies and lifestyle with you at their personal cost.
I can remember inviting someone to go out sometimes, and all the expense would fall on me. I was responsible for transportation, costs, and by the end of the day I was not happy with us going out. Seek friends that are in the same social class as you for both of you to contribute and enjoy your time together.
Dealing with friends and family can be two of your biggest obstacle's when you want to change your social status. Some may feel threatened while others are just comfortable and do not want to change. It is up to you to decide where you want to go at this point. Listen carefully when people around you talk, the words a person chooses are the core value of that individual. That is why you need to understand sometimes you may have to end a long-term friendship to move forward. Now that you want to improve your life and those around you ignore negative feedback's. Just like you are choosing to continue to build your life it is their choice to stay behind, don't force the issue. Too often people decide with their hearts instead of using the facts. You are working hard and deserve every reward that comes as a result. Misery loves company if you have people that are lazy in your life they will want you to be lazy with them. Watch out for those bad apples, you improve your life and so can those around you so never let them manipulate your thoughts. Too often I see lazy people complaining about a situation instead of looking for answers to solve the problem. If you offer a solution, they have twenty reasons why they can't use your solution. One of the biggest problem in a household is not having enough money to support the family expenses. That is why we talk about creating a business to control your income.
Coming from an ordinary background does not dictate how high in the social latter you can climb. If you want to be in a higher class build yourself up with Etiquette, join the right clubs and meet the people you want to move in those circles. One of the best ways to meet new people for me is attending events, seminars, or webinars. Sometimes you never know who you are going to meet, it could be other people like you or a chairman of a company. Don't be shy and bring out all the charisma you have inside of you. To build confidence learn about the event, read on the people that will attend and speak, also bring your business cards to network. Using strategies like these make you feel confident because you have your education to back you up. If something comes up you are not too sure about directly asking a question, that is never a bad thing. People that are in your life are always going to take something from you. You can choose to have people that just take from you or ones that take but also give back. Meeting the right people change your life, that is why you now want to have the right people in your circle.
It is natural to move up in the social latter once you start gaining success. Moving up is not deserting you past or forgetting who you are. Anyone that say different either wants you to fail or is scared you will leave them behind. Those with negative thoughts for you leave them be because your time is money. Anyone you care about shows them how they can also succeed and move higher on that latter with you.
