1. Be passionate about what you do. It will show.
2. Have an unwavering belief in what you do. It doesn’t matter if parts of the journey are peppered with critics, skeptics and hurdles.
3. Don’t take yourself too seriously. Be endearing to people who work with you and people who you need to buy into you.
4. Stand for something. State it and live it wherever possible.
5. Perform. Without eventual results, it all comes down to naught.
