There are a lot of things that set successful people apart from their unsuccessful counterparts. A few of them were highlighted on a postcard Dave Kerpen, CEO of Likeable Local and author of “The Art of People,” received back in 2014 from a fellow entrepreneur.

Kerpen wrote in a LinkedIn post that the postcard has had a profound effect on him, “reinforcing values I believe in and reminding me on a daily basis of the attitudes and habits that I know I need to embrace in order to become successful.”

We recently spoke to Kerpen, who shared a few more of the biggest differences between successful and unsuccessful people.

Here are 10 of our favorites from the postcard and our interview with the Likeable Local CEO:
