1. BE DECISIVE
 Success is a choice. You must decide what you want, why you want it, and how
you plan to achieve it. No one else can,will,or should do that for you.



2. STAY FOCUSED
A close relative to being decisive, but your ability to sustain you focus
from beginning to end determines the timing and condition of your
outcomes.



3. WELCOME FAILURE
The fundamental question is not whether you should accept failure. You have
no choice but to except it as a temporary condition on the path way of
progress. Rather, the question is how to anticipate failure and
redirect resources to grow from the experience.



4. WRITE DOWN GOALS
Your mind while blessed with permanent memory is cursed with lousy recall.
People forget things. Avoid temptation of being cute. Write down you
goals.



5. PLAN THROUGHLY
Planning saves 10 to 1 execution. Proper planning prevents poor performance.

6. INVOLVE OTHERS

Nobody goes through life alone. Establish your own "Personal Board of
Directors", people whose wisdom, knowledge, and character you respect
to help you achieve your

goals.

7. TAKE PURPOSEFUL ACTION
Success is not a spectator sport-achievement demands action. You cannot expect
to arrive at success without having made the trip.



8. REWARD YOURSELF
Rewards work! Think of what you will give yourself as a result of you hard work, focus and persistence - you deserve it!


9. INSPECT WHAT YOU EXPECT
The shelf life of all plans is limited. No plans holds up against
opposition. Everything changes. Therefore inspect frequently and
closely, it's an insurance policy of your success.



10. MAINTAIN PERSONAL INTEGRITY
Maintain your commitment to your commitment. Set your goals; promise yourself
that you will achieve them. Eliminate wiggle room and excuses.





"Your power to choose the direction of your life allows you to reinvent
yourself, to change you future, and to powerfully influence the rest of
creation."
~ Stephen R. Covey
