“Success in a Nanosecond”

“Any day we wish; we can discipline ourselves to make important changes in our lives.   Any day we wish; we can open the book that will open our mind to new knowledge.   We can do it immediately, or next week, or next month, or next year.

We can also do nothing.  We can pretend rather than perform.   And if the idea of having to change ourselves makes us uncomfortable, we can remain as we are.   The choices are ours to make.   But while we curse the effect, we continue to nourish the cause.

We have both the ability and the responsibility to make better choices beginning today.   We cannot allow our errors in judgment, repeated every day, to lead us down the wrong path.   We must keep coming back to those basics that make the biggest difference in how our life works out.   And then we must make the very choices that will bring life, happiness and joy into our daily lives.

And if I may be so bold to offer my last piece of advice for someone seeking and needing to make changes in their life – If you don’t like how things are, change it!   You have the ability to totally transform every area in your life – and it all begins with your very own power of choice.”     (Jim Rohn)


“One of the most common things I hear is, ‘I’d like to do something remarkable like that …, but my xyz won’t let me; where xyz  =  my boss, my publisher, my partner, my licensor, my franchisor, etc.    Well, you can fail by going along with that and not doing it, or you can do it, cause a ruckus and work things out later.

In my experience, once it’s clear you’re willing (not just willing, but itching, moving, and yes, implementing) without them, things start to happen.   People are rarely willing to step up and stop you, and often just waiting to follow someone crazy enough to actually do something.     I’m going.    Come along if you like.”     (Seth Godin)


“You can be as successful as you wish the nanosecond you decide you will not settle for anything less.”     (Tom Peters)
