Thoughts for day:
The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don't define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them.
Do it now. You become successful the moment you start moving toward a worthwhile goal.
