It’s sad, but true; many people lose their way on their goals. With increasing emails, texts, Facebook, phone calls, day to day life, demands and the occasional crisis… are you surprised?

The most important single quality of success is self-discipline. Self-discipline is having the ability within yourself, based on your strength of character and willpower, to do what you should do when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not. Character is the ability to follow through on a resolution after the enthusiasm with which the resolution was made has passed.

Imagine starting each day happy, excited and grateful.

To attract abundance and more of what you want in life, you must first acknowledge and appreciate the abundance of what you already have.  Best-selling author Darren Hardy says, “If you operate from what you lack, you will continue to produce outcomes to match it.”
