Want to be successful?
Model yourself from successful people in your field.
They are successful for a reason- what do they do that others do not? What don't they do?
How do they treat others? On they on social networks ? If so how do they conduct themselves in the social media world?
Ask questions- even more important watch them and listen.
Chances are they have already learned through their mistakes and walked through those mine fields, with any luck you may be able to avoid some of them - IF you listen and watch.
You will probably find that the number one thing they will all have in common is the way they treat others and approach their day.
