When you look at a mature tree, you are impressed by it’s trunk and branches.
But the true strength of any tree lies in it’s roots.
Without a strong root system no tree will survive.
This holds true for businesses as well.
See what I mean about building strong roots here:
People will often blame outside events for the situations they find themselves in.
They feel it is not their fault that their life didn’t turn out right, it has to be due to some outside factor or influence. Don’t fall into this trap!
You are the only one who can determine your outcome by taking responsibility for your actions.
See what I mean in the following video: Continue reading “Taking Responsibility for Your Actions Today”
It is easy to become discouraged when things don`t go our way.
This is why most people choose this course!

Once you get into the habit of analyzing instead of feeling sorry for yourself, you will have fewer setbacks to ponder. Continue reading “Are your setbacks making you wiser?”
There has to be a balance between being prepared and procrastinating.

It is so easy to get sidetracked with all the information we are bombarded with on a daily basis.
There is always someone telling you about the latest and greatest version of something on a daily basis.
So many people go chasing after these shiny objects that get dangled in front them every day and never finish their original plan.
Don’t fall into this trap, stick to your original plans and see them through to completion.
