Two years ago, on my trip around India, I visited the Karni Mata Temple or Temple of rats as it is better known, particularly attracted my attention some posters at the entrance containing a list of tips for being successful. Personally, I tend to be an unbeliever when it comes motivational phrases, I also believe that listings with guidelines on how to lead our lives, either: in love, at home, at work, etc. Only help to increase the level of frustration in people, however, know that there are other people for whom they work and somehow make these parameters be a model or behavior to follow.
The list of tips on the temple, are 21 tips for successful by Jackson Brown; in my opinion, they are simple, meaningful and can generate major changes in our personality and the way to achieve what we want.
