6. Develop a network of people to help you achieve your goals (and you can help them achieve their goals at same time). First, you must be aware of them. It's a "win-win" situation. Be enthusiastic at all times, because enthusiasm is catching.
7. Take ACTION, that first step...then next will follow naturally ...and far more easily. Nothing can stop you now. "Roll up sleeves" and get down to work. I believe first prerequisite for success is loving what you do. I love writing, although it's very lonely (and probably world's most solitary occupation). Always remember, life is not a 100 metres sprint - it's a marathon. So rest when you feel you need to and don't feel guilty about it (something I have to learn!). Have fun along journey. Perservere and persist in your quest.
Take responsibility for your own abundance and your learning throughout 'game of life'. Appreciate your abundance daily and give thanks to Universe for what you do have.
Have faith in yourself - believe deeply in yourself, but even more deeply in a Power far Greater than yourself... who loves you and wants what's best for you. The spiritual journey may take far longer than you thought, so be patient.
The measure of success is not money, but learning and growth.
Measure success in learning and growth - nothing else is important. Work is a place each of us creates in order to grow. It is laboratory for experimenting with our potential
10. When working for yourself, this is a time of unprecedented change in your life. Work allows you to put into place skills and knowledge acquired through education. It is a time to experiment with our potential and various demands made upon us. Initially we learn to work in teams, working towards a common objective. Then gradually in our working careers we learn to take on more and more responsibility.
Believe you deserve to be abundant - though not more than others. It's a matter of finding a balance between your ambitions and your responsibilities. Be accountable and socially responsible.
You can't force people to change. Listen to your intuition, truth and love. That is "voice" of Higher Power, God speaking to you.
Wherever you are, what better time to start than NOW!
