8. Being kind. Everyone is fighting some sort of battle, and you don’t always know what people are going through. Kindness can make all the difference.

9. A firm handshake. You want a good impression, look someone in the eye and shake their hand like you’re someone who is worth dealing with.

10. Take a moment every day and express gratitude for something. Sometime we get so caught up in first-world problems or the stress of life, we forget how good we have it.
