Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.

Momentum of achievement

Do you remember how great it feels when you set a goal and then reach it? Now would be an excellent time to make a new positive memory of achievement.

The more you achieve, the more highly motivated you become to achieve again. Achievement feeds on itself, so make sure to give it some good solid nourishment.

Start small, with a goal that’s easily attainable, and then put in the effort to achieve it. Let yourself experience the wonderful sense of fulfillment, enjoying how good and right it feels.

Then move quickly to something a little more challenging. Once the momentum of achievement is on a roll for you, keep it rolling.

A little bit of focused effort can go a long way toward building your confidence, your ambition, your enthusiasm and your effectiveness. Once you take a few positive, productive steps, a whole new world of brilliant possibilities will open up to you.

Make a little success, then make a little more, and soon it will start to carry you forward. And there’s no limit to where you can go from there.
