QUOTES OF THE WEEK   
 
"I came, I saw, I conquered."
 
 
Julius Caesar


 
"I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it is."
 
 
- Wayne Gretzky

 
 
"Happiness is good health, and a bad memory."
   
- Ingrid Bergman

 
 
 
Do You Have What it Takes to Succeed?
 
Here are five great assessment questions to find out

1. Do you believe you are worthy?
 
I am absolutely staggered by the fact that many individuals believe that goals and dreams are for those who dare to dream and set goals -- not them. 

Do you believe you are more than worthy? Do you believe -- without compromise --  that it's only a matter of time before you realize your goals?
 
If you said, "Yes!" -- congratulations; you've taken the first step toward making it happen!

2. Do you have a dream?
 
You must have a dream that excites and pulls you towards where you want to go. Not just any dream; but a dream that stirs up a healthy obsession about all the rewards that are attached to your goal.  Think freedom, happiness, security, money, and achievement.  Your dream must be powerful enough to keep you going, when the going gets tough.

3. Are You Willing to Do What it Takes to Succeed?
 
Les Brown says: "You gotta be hungry!"  Meaning, success involves having an insatiable appetite for your goals.  You must be willing to do whatever is ethically necessary to achieve your goals.  Be eager to learn new things.  The great news is that you live in an era where you literally have millions of resources to succeed by.
 

4. Are You Willing to take Risks?
 
No side-stepping here.  You're going to have to be open to taking calculated risks when it comes to achieving.  Getting your feet wet and treading across uncharted territory is a large part of your gain.

5. Are You Willing to Be Persistent?

I have a friend who earns over a million dollars a year as National Director of a cosmetics firm.  She tells me she probably would have been content as a sales person, or in a low-paying job.  "But I made a decision and a promise to myself to persist, until I reached all my written goals.  I had some lean times -- lots of microwave popcorn lunch and dinners.  But I saw the big picture and stayed inspired by Napoleon Hill's words, 'Persist, until.'  Those two words kept me going when I felt like quitting."

So ... how did you do?

If you answered "YES" to all five questions, then, much success to you!


Make a Plan to Make the Changes Necessary

 
Is the scale showing you a number that you like to divide?  Are time-consuming tasks keeping you from doing what needs to be done?  Is the garage and the cars that sleep in it in dire need of de-cluttering?  If so, schedule a meeting with yourself.  Evaluate your entire life and then create a plan to make the changes necessary. 
 
 
Mind Your Money by Cheryl Broussard  

The Millionaire Formula:
 
Interested in becoming a millionaire? Hereís the formula. Hopefully this will kick you into the savings habit! As you can see, itís never too late to get started. Even a 40-year old person today can be a millionaire in 30-years at the age of 70 by saving $442.38 a month. This table shows what your specific weekly and monthly investment must be based on: a particular time goal, and earnings of 10% a year.

Motivation From Within  by Denis Waitley
 
Motivation is a contraction of motive and action. An inner force that compels behavior comes from within, not from any external circumstance. You know where you're going because you have a compelling image inside, not a travel poster on the wall, a financial statement with a big bonus, or a slogan in the hall.

The performance of many externally motivated individuals begins declining as soon as they win contests of one sort or another. I've personally witnessed this among Super Bowl champions and World Cup teams that lost the incentive to maintain their excellence after winning the cup, the honors, and the cash.  If you're really committed to peak performance and leadership, you must motivate yourself from within.

Behavioral scientists have found that independent desire for excellence -- an inner drive -- is the most telling predictor of significant achievement.  In other words, the success of our efforts depends less on the efforts themselves than on our motives. The most successful companies, like the most successful men and women in almost all fields, have achieved their greatness out of a desire to express what they felt had to be expressed.

Often it was a desire to use their skills to their utmost in order to solve a problem. This is not to say that many of them did not also earn a great deal of money and prestige.  William Shakespeare, Thomas Edison, Estee Lauder, Walt Disney, Oprah Winfrey, Sam Walton and Bill Gates all became wealthy. But far more than thoughts of profit, the key to their success was inspiration and inner drive. This was done by creating or providing excellence in a product or a service.  All were motivated by the desire to produce the very best that was in them.

Enduring motivation must always come ultimately from within the individual. That's why empowerment and vision are so crucial to team performance and quality. Their power and their vision, not those of the leader must compel team members. Commit to achieving peak performance and leadership, by motivating yourself from within!

To Your Health!


 
 

Aspirin is the well-known, "wonder drug" can help lower the risk of a heart attack or stroke. It can also aids in keeping arteries open for those who have had a previous heart bypass or another artery-opening procedure, such as angioplasty. Aspirin is given to people who arrive at a hospital emergency department with a suspected heart attack or stroke. 

However, aspirin is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the prevention of heart attacks in people who have never had a heart attack or stroke. Aspirin can cause serious side effects and may mix dangerously with other medicines. If you are thinking about using aspirin for heart problems, talk with your doctor first. If your doctor believes that aspirin is a good choice for you, be sure to take the recommended dose.
