THE LAW OF DIMINISHING INTENT

Installing NEW routines and behaviors requires a herculean disciplined effort. Do not squander your desire. Put it to good use. Take immediate action.

Successful people feel fear, but they don’t let it stop them. They suffer failures because they are pushing themselves to do things that are uncomfortable. Successful people will tell you that if you aren’t failing occasionally, you aren’t even in the game. Continue reading “Don’t Let Your Mind Become a Prison”
