Be a Leader Not a Boss
Bosses abuse their titles over others to get what they want. A real leader would put the goals of the team before his own. A leader will be more successful in the long term since they will gain the respect from others and can end up with better positions in the future.
Everything needs to be a winning situation
If you get into a deal that only benefits yourself, then you will lose the respect of others. You need to put yourself into situations where both yourself and the customer win from the situation. Even in tough situations, you need to make everything beneficial for everybody.
Listen more than you speak
Also, if you seldom speak, your words will appear more wise and authoritative.
Balance out your life
If you work too much and only focus on money, then your personal life will suffer. If you focus on socializing and neglect working, then your family may end up in poverty. You will need to find a balance in your schedule if you want to be well rounded.
Figure out your passion
Having a passion is no guarantee to financial success, but very few successful people lack passion. You need to find something that gives you the drive to wake up early, skip your vices and work long hours. Just drudging through life will burn your out long before you hit retirement age.
