Michael Neuendorff on Habits That Lead to Success
By Julia Miglets

To seek success requires courage. That doesn't come naturally to most people because we are weary of the unknown. As much as we like to say it's a great thing we live in a society that doesn't embrace failure. It comes down to human nature and the innate fears that come along with it.

Instant Expert: How to Replace Your Headlights

There are certain things in life that are best left to the professionals (dyeing your hair blonde, performing open heart surgery - you get the idea.) But basic car maintenance isn't one of them. Each month, mental_floss and GEICO will team up to walk you through an essential auto-related task, helping you become that much more accomplished (and not to mention, more financially responsible) in the process.
