1. Winners say, “Let’s find out.”
Those consistently unable to succeed say, “Nobody knows.”

4. Winners show they are sorry by making up for it.

For those of you who are Winners, as you work with others reach out to help them become more than they are. Teach them how to find resources so they learn to grow and gain confidence.
For those of you who are on your way to more success, be willing to take a risk. Be courageous and reach out to others who are where you want to be or have what you would like to have, i.e., network every place you go and make friends with those you can help move forward as you learn from them also! If you want to grow yourself or your business you must make mistakes and take chances. Always keep in mind the words of Abraham Lincoln: “Important principles may, and must, be inflexible” – set standards for yourself that require accountability. Commit to doing your best and being your best every day!
“Do what you can in the here and now, making the most of the journey.”
