Try setting a really tight deadline in order to have a breakthrough.

You force yourself to tap into sources you don’t normally use.

Next time you start a project, set a really tight deadline for it and see what happens. You may find you did not to have all the elements of the job you planned for, you may think of shortcuts you didn’t think of before, you may take calculated risks that you wouldn’t have before and so on. Whatever happens will happen sooner than it would have otherwise and this gives you time to fix things that went wrong or savor the speed in which you got the job done.

Ready to try a tight deadline?

“Gosh I wish I had known”

Being successful is a lot easier than I thought it would be.

Success boils down to a few simple rules. The first rule is to set goals. Next is set up a time and money budget to implement them. The last rule is to take action. You can get bogged down in these steps if you try to make more out of them then there is. Start out with a few(not more than three) goals and break them down into actionable, measurable steps and give it a shot.

You are going to be so amazed to see things actually happening for you.

“I’ll have the usual.”

Saying that could doom you to failure.

Success usually comes from breaking out of your patterns and finding something new. No one needs you for what already is, they need you for something new. And “the usual” is not the answer. Start looking for what you can offer that is not the usual. Break up you habits and old ways so you start looking at the world in a new way.

Try something new today.

Talent isn’t enough for success.

Talent keeps you frozen where you are, improvement is the key to success.

Talent is great to have, no question about it. But transforming it into ability and then constantly improving on it little by little is where greatness is found. Having talent is seductive. It is easy to stay where you are and be good. Moving beyond that requires real work and it is hard to justify when you are good already.

So that is the big question. If you have talent, do you have what it takes to have ability?

What separates the winners from the losers?

It is the ability to tolerate discomfort.

Obtaining success always and mean always guarantees you will experience discomfort along the way. Tolerance to discomfort varies from person to person and from situation to situation. Wanting something, I mean really wanting something increases your tolerance to discomfort. Know success is going to hurt a bit and ask yourself in advance if you are willing to live with it.

Are you ready for some pain?

Be OK with things not being OK all the time.

No matter how good we are, how hard we work, etc. things don’t go well. You have to learn to live with that.

You need a system that lets you live with setbacks. Some people build a “fudge factor” into their goals that allows for this, others just adopt an attitude that lets them roll with the punches. The point is that things are going to go South on occasion through no fault of your own or even because you made a mistake. You will just make yourself crazy and abandon your goals if you insist on perfection all the time.

Lighten up, things are going to go wrong, but you can still make it.

Grow up!

You know what you should and should not be doing, but you are not doing it.

So when are you going to “Man Up” and do what you are supposed to do. By now you know you can’t get away with what you are doing. You pay the price each day and is getting nothing but worse. Right now is as good a time as any to start turning things around. Start taking baby steps in the right direction and watch how things change for the better.

Which direction are you going in next?

You have not been sent here in a test or trial.

Everything counts.

What you do with your life matters. It matters to you, it matters to others, it matters to the whole world and what comes after. You need to take life seriously and step up to your responsibilities.

Your life is not a drill, make something meaningful happen today.

Change want to have to if you want success.

There are tons of things you want, but only a limited number of things you have to. Guess which things get done.

Wanting to do something doesn’t carry the weight of having to do something. And it shows in the results you get. There are seven days in a week and someday is not one of them. Wanting puts things in the someday category and that is the kiss of death. If you want to accomplish a goal find a way to make it a must do and it will happen.

Is today a someday or a must day?

To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice your gift.

Your success in any endeavor is forever linked directly to your heart, your will, and your steadfast commitment to goals.

You cannot ever let fatigue make you a coward, nor can you ever expect to win without struggling, without suffering, without sacrificing…as these are all essential elements of the DNA of winning. The relentless attitude is the winning attitude and the remarkable thing about life is that we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. You cannot change your past. You cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. You cannot change the inevitable. The only thing you can do is to play on the one string you have, and that is your attitude

So what is it: you can choose to be relentless, or you can choose to roll over and surrender to weakness.
