  • 95% of success in life comes from becoming absolutely clear your top goals and your daily plan of action to attain it

  • The more you persist, the stronger you become. The stronger you become, the more your are able to persist.
  • The more you discipline yourself to persist in the face of adversity, the more you will like and respect yourself, and the more powerful you will feel
