Make 2007 your break-out year.
Here are some suggestions to help you blossom next year.
1. Identify the Prize
Ponder your ultimate dreams. Ignore all the reasons
why you think you cannot achieve them. Remove the
limits of your thinking. If you focus on the prize, you
will win it.
2. Believe in Yourself
You have greatness in you. Look deep within.
Regardless of past failures, you have the power to
win at last.
3. Honor Your Values
If you value honesty—live honestly.
If you believe hard work pays—work hard.
If you have a religious faith—live it.
By honoring your values you will remove many
barriers to obtaining your dreams.
4. Make Changes
Evaluate what isn’t working and try new approaches.
You have freedom of choice—use it. You may need
to try many approaches before you find the one that
will work to your satisfaction.
Associate with others chasing similar dreams. Learn
from them. Teach them. Bounce ideas off of them.
This will be your year. Wrestle it to the ground and make it
conform to your will.
Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those
who dared believe that something inside them was superior
to circumstances. Bruce Barton
Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice;
it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.
William Jennings Bryan
We succeed only as we identify in life, or in war, or in
anything else, a single overriding objective, and make all
other considerations bend to that one objective.
Only if you reach the boundary will the boundary recede
before you. And if you don't, if you confine your efforts, the
boundary will shrink to accommodate itself to your efforts.
And you can only expand your capacities by working to the
very limit. Hugh Nibley
Achievement is largely the product of steadily raising one's
levels of aspiration and expectation. Jack Niklaus
Get the e-book Ordinary People Can Achieve Their
Lofty Goals and get over $600 in downloadable bonuses.
I've just read "Ordinary People Can Achieve Their Lofty
Goals" for the 3rd time in 3 days. The first time, I only got
to page 10 before I felt so inspired that I had to stop and
finish off some work on some goals I'd let slip. The second
time, I just couldn't put the book down. I read and re-read
the articles and learnt so much. What an amazing
collection. So profound and uplifting. The third time, I
decided to cancel everything else and devote a couple of
hours to the book and read them all through. It's like a
Masterclass in Motivation. My mood lifted so much, I felt
so inspired at the end. It's definitely going to be a book I'm
going to come back to again and again. Brilliant concept,
brilliant execution, brilliant results.
By the way, there's no hype in that paragraph. That's
exactly how it was.
