Class is easy to recognize but much harder to define. Similarly, the absence of class is easy to detect -- and a serious flaw for anyone who aspires to be successful.
People can tell if you have class by the way you interact with others. If you have class, you don't need much of anything else to be a winner. If you don't have it, no matter what you do, it won't make up the difference. Money, notoriety or success by themselves won't give you class. Class comes from within, not from external sources.
Make a decision to recreate yourself as a class act and see what kind of people you start attracting. Do fewer things, but do them better. Change your behavior for the better. Raise the quality of your attitude. When you have a higher level of personal standards, you get better treatment from everyone around you.
