“If you’re serious about becoming a wealthy, powerful, sophisticated, healthy, influential, cultured and unique individual, keep a journal. Don’t trust your memory. When you listen to something valuable, write it down. When you come across something important, write it down."
– Jim Rohn, 3-day Leadership conference in Anaheim, California
Success is personal. There is no one “correct” definition of success. Each of us
must examine what we want from life and from ourselves and clarify our personal
vision of success. Other people’s skills, qualities, possessions, and achievements can inspire us, but we should measure our progress by our standards, not others'.
Success is a choice. What sets successful people apart from unsuccessful people is their willingness to take charge of their lives, to pursue opportunities, and to make their goals happen. Each of us, no matter what our life circumstances, can make a conscious choice to become more self-aware and self-confident, to work hard, to build self-discipline and self-motivation, and to persist until we achieve our goals.
