Everyone tells us to be a leader, but they never tell us how. Dale Carnegie tells us exactly how. If you haven’t read his book, you are missing a treat.

1. Begin with praise and honest appreciation.

2. Call attention to people’s mistakes indirectly.

3. Talk about your own mistakes before criticizing the other person.

4. Ask questions instead of giving direct orders.

5. Let the other person save face.

6. Praise the slightest improvement and praise every improvement.

7. Give the other person a fine reputation to live up to.

8. Use encouragement.

9. Make the fault easy to correct.

10. Make the other person happy about doing the thing you suggest.

Dale Carnegie (1888-1955)

      Procrastination will get you nowhere. Decide where you want to go, and who you want to be, then go for it with all the gusto you can muster. AND do not the mindless thoughts and actions of others slow you down.

    It is best that you choose the website where you are about to watch movies online for reviews and the most recent testimonials coming from other users. It does not necessarily mean that the first encountered website offering free movie downloads is the best web page for you to go with. From time to time, you need to read some reviews and determine whether they are worthy of your time, and whether these sites won’t harm your computer with their damaged files.

    Although a lot of people consider it easy to download moves online, you do not have to jeopardize the security of your computer or your laptop from a number of websites that you may not be familiar with. This is why it is strongly recommended that before you watch movies online, or before you register for websites offering free movie downloads, take into consideration the site’s reputation, and what other members have to say about their services.
