Listen. Actually listening to somebody is the single most important rule you’ll ever learn about people -especially women. Listen to what they have to say. All people have dreams, fears, hopes and thoughts. Listening to them will be the greatest gift you can give to anybody, great or small, wise or ignorant, and if you can do that for them, they’ll love you in return.

Have fun. The only reason to lead a life of adventure is to enjoy it. Power, money, pleasure and excitement will come all in due time but they will be just spices on the main dish.

Stay thirsty. No matter what you achieve, how great your life seems to be, or how tired you become, there’s always a new adventure waiting around the corner for the man who is ready to undertake it.
Dance, for the fun of it.
Learn from the masters. They know their trade, players, politicians, salesmen, they all build castles in the sky. There’s a lot to learn from them.
Remember even the greats started at the bottom, the important thing is to keep moving.
‘Be a little bit better everyday. Whether it’s your smell, your looks, your moves, or your confidence, I leave it to up you.
Smile. Laugh. Be grateful for this opportunity, raise your glass to your fellow brothers and have a beautiful life.
Learn to talk, about abstract intangible things, dreams and hopes rather than facts and things, There are a gazillion articles about it out there.
Look good. Loving everyone means respecting everyone, yourself too, and that includes your body. Exercise, dress as nice as you can, indulge in shallow little things like haircuts and shoes. It will boost your confidence. But remember that it ‘s still an accessory.
Stop reading and start putting into practice what you are. Unless you are out there in the field you won’t know how is it like being the Casanova.
Stop over analyzing things, just go with the flow. Some people get too caught up in their thought process when any girl rejects them, instead move on and find a new one.
Experience in the best teacher. Learn from your mistake and move on.
Develop good communication skills. Most of the Casanovas are very good communicators; they know how to strike with the ladies with their words.
Have positive thoughts in the mind most of the times; we know it’s tough to keep positive thoughts in our minds all time specially when things get tough, but practice makes a man perfect.
Repetition is the mother of skills; keep trying. It’s a numbers game guys: the more you try, the more better you get at seducing the ladies, but guys, please don’t come as desperate or needy.
Becoming a Casanova can bring life changing consequences.
Not everyone is cut for this life, so make sure it’s what you really want and that you’re not just momentarily bored.
You will be rejected by many ladies,specially those looking for a husband material, so don’t take rejection personally and move on.
Forget about stability and security. This is no life to have a nice corner office and three children.
