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.

5. Collaborate
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. Dwight Eisenhower

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

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. Thanks.
By the way, there's no hype in that paragraph. That's exactly how it was.
