The "S" word.
Wouldn’t we all like to have such a confidence about our future success that there are no doubts in our mind that success will materialize? How do we build this confidence?
I find it best to set a goal, formulate a plan of action, create a deadline, put said plan into action, and revisit my written plan daily.
At times my goals seem overwhelming and difficult to complete. I have found that I must condition myself to focus on the smaller task that will eventually lead me to completion of the larger task at hand. I feel great when I can check things off of my to do list and remain disciplined each day to see my goals through. Some days I fall short but I can’t let set backs defeat me.
The following are some tips that I have compiled through reading and video research over time. I find that I have to review these tips consistently to keep things fresh in mind. With the hustle and bustle of the day, the weeks, the months; after a while I tend to drift and lose focus. If you happen to use these tips be sure to set time aside to review them daily.
