                                      Those Who Succeed

Those who are goal, future, and result-oriented, place a value on their time, and direct their energies...
with intelligence - succeed.
Those who prepare mentally, physically, and emotionally, and know how to tap into their hidden potentials - succeed.
Those who set high standards, strive for excellence, and use their energy and creativity to accomplish the
impossible - succeed.
Those who take full responsibility and accountability for their life, and for the direction it takes - succeed.
Those who continuously refine and polish their skills, and emphasize the importance of accuracy and detail - succeed.
Those who think positively, act on that positiveness, and practice a self-affirming inner dialogue - succeed.
Those who foster self-discipline and self-control, stay focused and committed, and can abstain from that which would distract or side-track them - succeed.
Those who align themselves in right association and detach from wrong association, embrace that which is life-enhancing and let go of that which is not - succeed.
Those who transform adversity and difficulties into challenges and opportunities - succeed.
Those who keep perspective, can hold poised and steadfast in the face of hardship or tribulation...
and remain composed and dignified in the face of failure - succeed.
Those who stand up for their beliefs and values, keep their hearts and thoughts pure, cultivate a moral code and exemplify it in their lives - succeed.
Those who make a difference...
great or small, in another person's life, share their knowledge, and help others attain - succeed. 
                   Some succeed to attain: status or prestige, power or favour, fame or wealth.
                     Some succeed for personal satisfaction or to self-actualize.
                       Somewhere in the above is where you'll find me.
