city-people-at-sunset-1209081-mSuccess in business, life, and relationships hinges on people feeling comfortable around us and doing business with us.

Sure, there are exceptions. 

I know Frank whose hygiene and attitude stink, however, he owns a successful junk car yard. 

He’s the exception not rule.

Sometimes the first step in improving your success in relationships is to take out the trash. Dump the negative habits. Kick out the irritating behaviors.

Start with these 7.

#1. Cocky attitude / Stuck Up

My wife can’t stand being around people like this. This shows when a person thinks they better than everyone else. A critical error that will sabotage your relationships.

Don’t confuse this with confidence.

#2: Lack of eye-contact
Shows disinterest, though you may just be shy. Read the prior emails on how to have good eye-contact.

#3: Crowding personal space.

Everyone has a invisible border around them. Violate this and they feel uncomfortable. Keep your distance. 36 inches can be good. All depends on the circumstances. 

#4: Over talking

My friend claimed that he dated a girl who would not quit talking. He said he could put the phone down and 20 minutes later could pick it up and she would not know he had left.

Don’t have that reputation as people may barely tolerate you.

#5: Body odor.

Brush the teeth. Use breath mints. You know the drill. 

#6: Putting people down.

Harsh teasing. Put downs. Negative talk. This will crush your chances of long term success in your friendships.

#7: Bored look

George Bush lost votes in 1992 when he looked bored during the debates. Don’t make that mistake!
