~ Sun Tzu, "The Art of War"

The essential factor of military success is speed, that is taking advantage of others' unpreparedness or lack of foresight, their failure to catch up, going by routes they do not expect, attacking where they are not on guard. This you cannot accomplish with hesitation.

Four Steps to a Super Attitude

By Brian Tracy

Here are four things you can do to assure that your attitude is the very best it can be, under all circumstances.

  1. Focus On The Future: Whatever challenges you face, focus on the future rather than on the past.

The Key To Success

Most of the problems in life stem from one cause: we can't get ourselves to take action. It's not that we don't know what to do. The problem is getting ourselves to follow through and do it.

Success isn't determined by genetics. It's about persistent, consistent action.

Action is the key. You can be the most talented person in the world or have the best ideas, yet still if you do not take action you will achieve nothing.

Having dreams and passion is not enough. If you wish to achieve something, don't let life just "happen" to you. Set goals and take action.

How To Overcome Procrastination

Procrastination is the avoidance of doing a task which needs to be accomplished.

Too many people want more form their life but never start. They are talkers, not doers. Their ability to act seems sleeping.

Procrastination destroys your dreams and goals and leaves you with nothing but regrets.  It can eat away at the quality of your life with devastating results. Procrastination robs you of time, while simultaneously making you feel miserable about it... More

The Skill of Getting Yourself To Take Action

Many people are afraid to go after what they want because it would force them to stretch their comfort zones. They convince themselves that a time will come when they won't be afraid to go after their goals. But this 'special' time when everything falls into place will never come. You will always feel out of your comfort zone when it comes to changing and improving your life.

Successful people aren't free of fear and worry; they move forward in spite of it. They've learnt how to motivate themselves and get themselves to take action. If you wish to succeed, you must learn how to develop and master the skill of getting motivated to do the things you've always wanted to do.1

Don't Quit, Keep Going

The law of inertia says that "a body at rest tends to remain at rest or a body in motion tends to remain in motion." Understand the power that even the tiniest of actions can have when taken in a negative situation. See the problem as a growth opportunity – it's usually at this time that your greatest growth can occur.

You need to consistently take the actions that are critical to the success of your business... More

The Tao of Business Success

Fortune Favors the Brave

By: Brian Tracy

Boldness is a necessary part of courage but it must be a boldness based on an intelligent assessment of the potential risks and rewards. The wonderful nature of boldness is that, properly directed, it builds the habit of courage in the person who practices it.

Act Boldly in Every Situation

In my experience, any virtue translated into action leads almost invariably to positive results. This applies to integrity, persistence, courtesy, love and courage. I’ve always liked the advice of an old man to his grandson. “Act boldly and unseen forces will come to your aid.”... More
