The Success Principle of Perseverance

Been playing around with hill sprints on the treadmill...worked up to three sprints of 30 seconds at 10mph at 10% incline today. Goal is 10. Legs were a little tired for it today. I still have some work to do.

"Perseverance, the willingness to keep going know matter how bad things may seem, is a cornerstone of every success story. "Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Most people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure." - Napolean never, ever, EVER give up.

One of the best success tips you don't want to hear is this: "Get up 30 minutes earlier every day, M-F. Spend this 30 minutes taking MASSIVE ACTION on one MAJOR task before moving on to anything else."......It was this simple strategy that helped me go from working for someone else in 2004 to being in complete control of my life by 2006. And you'll be able to make that transition even faster in 2012.

You can't do $10 an hour tasks if you want to make $100K each year...identify those time/energy wasting tasks (like sending FedEx packages, running errands, mowing your lawn, etc.) and outsource/delegate them immediately. At $100K per year on a 40 hour workweek, your time is worth at LEAST $50/hour, and more like $150/hour. Do not ignore that. Respect your time.
