I was cleaning some stuff out and found a piece of paper with the following thoughts:
Think progress, believe in progress, push for progress.
You are what you think you are - be brilliant.
Believe, really believe, you can move mountains. Believe in great results.
My attitudes are more important than my intelligence.
Use big, positive, energizing words.
Monopolize listening, not talking.
Cure yourself of excuseitis.
Look for ideas everywhere.
I do not remember when I wrote these ideas. I don't remember why I wrote them. But it seems like a good filter from which to start a new week.
