Success builds block by block. Each success brick on the first course must be cemented to a solid foundation. So I believe a good approach is to lay a foundation of positive actions that work toward building a solid business base.

Stumbling, having self doubt, picking yourself up and dusting off bad results are a part of the learning curve. The best mistakes are the ones that teach intestinal fortitude and perseverance.

Easy? Quick? Magical? Nope. If you want success, you find other successful people and principles that guide your thinking and action. If you want to remain captive to the whims of others, you whine about how life messed you over. You refuse to own responsibility for your choices all the while blaming others for your sorry ass state of affairs.

Heck--it's just the beginning of 2009--plenty of time to get some goals in the cross hairs and plans loaded in the chamber. Ready-Aim--------->
