Sometimes we let our mistakes limit us, and we lean on our successes to feel good about ourselves. Successful people learn from their past but focus on not repeating it.
There is no substitute for focus when it comes to achievement. The recent Olympics and Michael Phelps remind us that the power of focus can keep us winning even after a disappointing loss.
The key to successful achievement in anything is staying focused on your goal and making whatever adjustments you need to make so you can keep moving toward it. Are you stuck? Do you need a nudge?
Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "The great majority of men are bundles of beginnings." Are you merely a starter, or are you also a finisher?
When it comes to leadership, uncertainty is a permanent part of all progress; it never goes away! Furthermore, uncertainty isn't an indication of poor leadership, it just underscores the need for it.
Vision doesn’t follow resources, it happens the other way around. Resources follow vision. Too often we want to see the resources, or have them in hand before we start moving forward.
Too many of us stand on the dock waiting. We want the ship in place, the gangplank perfectly positioned, the weather right and an engraved invitation before we’re willing to launch out.
"The conquest lay within my own mind. I had to penetrate those barriers of self-imposed limitation and get through to the good stuff—the stuff called potential, 90 percent of which we rarely use."
The corporate world risks failure every time they launch another product. But, without taking risks they've no chance of succeeding at all.
We learn to become effective when we decide to become selective. Nothing is a powerful as a focused life.The people who make the greatest difference in life are the most focused.
