The three decisions that control your destiny are:

  1. What to focus on?
  2. What things mean to you?
  3. What to do to create the results you desire?

• By changing any one of these five elements ( a core belief or rule, a value, a reference, a question, or an emotional state ) you can immediately produce a powerful and measurable change in your life.
