My friend, did you know that you can print out these statements and post it on your working desk or on bedroom door? It’s extremely useful. Someday, you will suddenly realize that your life has changed in a positive way.

Now, sum up all the points that you get.

If you have 20-40 points, you are keeping very bad habits. Look at all the low points again and try to find solutions to change.

If you have 40-60 points, your habits are not quite good. You still have room for more changes.

If you have more than 60 points, good, you are living a good life. Keep on. But if you want to be more successful in life, you still can change some of the low point habits.

If you have more than 80 points, congratulations, you are one of the best in this world. But do not be so proud. You need to continue maintaining these as daily routines
