And Tony Robbins https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Robbins
These are just some great examples of individuals with excellent, tried-and-true ideas on how to be most efficient, effective, and successful day in and day out. Setting goals matters. Long, and short term. Whatever it is you that want to accomplish: Write it down, and break it down into timeframes that are realistic. Most New Years Resolutions fail not due to the specific resolution but because of unrealistic timeframes and goals people set for themselves.  As with any change in human nature – ours in self improvement or when setting professional and workplace goals as well – the key is to set realistic timeframes and parameters around any change in behavior. In reading any and all of the aforementioned individuals, a common denominator is Belief, as believing that you can indeed do anything that you put your mind to, is a huge component to your overall level of success. The word “can’t” is a good example of a word that not only needs to disappear from an individual’s vocabulary.. what really needs to shift, is the true pivot for many people from thinking something is impossible, to believing that most anything that you put your mind to, is possible. That is why those individuals with a positive outlook on life statistically do much better when they are faced with health challenges. They self-educate, and empower themselves with facts. Make and take a few minutes to discover and learn or relearn from some of suggested individuals linked in this blog – Google is your friend on finding others – and statistically we’ll do better than most in 2018 here in the great Sebago Lakes Region Of Maine!
