Vince Lombardi, Green Bay Packers Coach

Vince Lombardi said that your body will withstand almost any amount of punishment. It’s your mind you have to convince.

Everything Olympic athletes are taught in their mental training is designed to do two things: to increase their self-belief and to fuel their desire. You see, the coaches know that if you believe something is possible, you’ll have the courage to
get started. And if you want something bad enough, nothing will make you quit.

If you couple self-belief and a burning desire with a great attitude and a strong work ethic, and if you surround yourself with winners who help you and encourage you, success is just a matter of time.

Do you have a dream that takes your breath away? A dream that you’re willing to fight for?

Are you willing to do whatever it takes to make your dream a reality?

Are you willing to read the books, listen to the tapes, attend the seminars, associate with the right people and dis-associate yourself from the wrong people?

If you’re not, you’re fooling yourself. Because your dream will not fall on your lap. You have what it takes to realize your dream but it’s going to take everything you’ve got!

In case you haven’t figured it out yet, this is a real success blog. It’s not a touchy-feely, make-you-feel-good blog. There’s way too many of them on the Internet. You deserve the best so I won’t give you a bunch of candy coated stuff that won’t get you anywhere.

The reason the road to your dream is a tough one is because the purpose of the dream is to bring out the best in you. All of your hidden gifts that you don’t even know you possess.

You have to make a quality decision that you will become the type of person capable of making your dream happen.

John Wooden, the legendary UCLA basketball coach said, “Success is the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you did your best to become your best.”

What will you do today to earn the feeling of peace of mind that you did your best today to become your best?

Write it down and DO IT NOW!
