Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be. Ralph Waldo Emerson
D=Desire, Drive, Determination & Dedication
The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential. These are the keys that will unlock the doors to personal excellence~Confucius
We herd sheep, we drive cattle, we lead people. Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way~George S. Patton
The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand~Vince Lombardi
If you possess these 4 words, there are no limits for what you can achieve. You must believe in yourself because if you don’t no one else will.
U=Understanding Others Through Mastery of Personalities
Peace can not be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding~Albert Einstein
Understanding the personalities of those you influence is a huge component of how successful you will become. It will dramatically increase how you present and how they receive. I would suggest you study the DISC Personality chart to get a better understanding of how one’s personality works. If you master this skill, your success is virtually guaranteed.
T=Trust Your Training & Talent
Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit~Aristotle
My mother once told me that I have two ears and one mouth for a reason. She told me to listen more and talk less.
If you want to be a successful leader and/or entrepreneur it all starts by trusting your training and talent. Morale starts at the top. Allow your people to work independant without looking over their shoulders. Leaders should manage the systems they have in place, not their people.
I want you to be everything that’s you, deep at the center of your being~Confucius
The only one that will look out for you is You! No one else can be depended on for your success. My saying is this, “I’ll see you at the top or from the top”. The only one that will get you there is You. You have to commit yourself to wanting success more than you want the air you breathe. If you are not willing to sacrifice this, you will stay in the same position in the same location. Resolve today to want success more than you want the air you breathe. Your success will be virtually guaranteed if you live your life with this in mind.
