Definitely the main skill to have if you need to become successful with anything, is ATTITUDE. A great old Chinese proverb once said, “90% of the journey towards success is over when you have stepped exterior your front door. inches The main reason many people are unsuccessful, happens because they’d rather stay in watching the TELEVISION SET.
