Here’s some wisdom from Charlie Munger, Warren Buffet’s main man, via getpocket.com.
To get what you want, deserve what you want. Trust, success, and admiration are earned.
It’s such a simple idea. It’s the golden rule so to speak: You want to deliver to the world what you would buy if you were on the other end. There is no ethos, in my opinion, that is better for any lawyer or any other person to have. By and large the people who have this ethos win in life and they don’t win just money, not just honors. They win the respect, the deserved trust of the people they deal with, and there is huge pleasure in life to be obtained from getting deserved trust.
There are plenty more rules that one could master. Check out the whole list.
