  • End goals are the beautiful, exciting rewards of being human on planet Earth. End goals speak to your soul. They bring you joy in and of themselves, not because they confer any outward label, standard, or value attached by society.
  • Means goals are the things that society tells us we need to have in place to get to happiness. Almost everything I wrote down as a goal was actually a means to an end, not an end in itself.

  1. Create a manifesto that summary what you’re seeking to bring to the world, your beliefs and values, and how you operate. Add this to your website if you have one. Remember to share the why of what you do.
  2. Find your big why. Throw out the dispassionate corporatespeak. Talking about your beliefs, your values, your vision for the world will engage people’s emotions, which is how they make decisions.
  3. Craft a Vivid Vision and make it public. Speak three years into the future. Don't worry if you’re currently small or operating from a warehouse. Talk about the future as if it’s happening now.

Your Attitude Is Your Window to the World.
  • Your success initially depends on the way that you think
  • A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes.
  • The key to success can be identified in just 6 words "WE BECOME WHAT WE THINK ABOUT."
  • The idea is that there is a power within each of us that propels us in the direction of our current dominating thought, if your thoughts are dominating toward positivity you will get positive results and if in negative you will get a negative result.
  • If your thought doesn't change, your result won't change.
