The Seven Habits Of Highly Effective People

To illustrate character based beliefs, Stephen wrote the life and business guide, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.
The Seven Habits

Use your physical well-being as your guide. It will tell you when you get off track. Listen to the messages your body sends you, and make the necessary changes to get back on course. As you increase your ability to strengthen your bodies' systems, you release the intelligences contained in the mind, the heart, and the spirit.
