“If you want to be successful, find out what the price is and then pay it. Successful people don’t wish for success; they decide to pursue it. And to pursue it effectively, they need a system. Success always has a price, but the reality is that the price is negotiable. If you pick the right system, the price will be a lot nearer to what you’re willing to pay. Make choices that maximize your personal energy because that makes it easier to manage all of the other priorities. Maximizing personal energy means eating right, exercising, avoiding unnecessary stress, getting enough sleep, and all of the obvious steps. But it also means having something in your life that makes you excited to wake up. Exercise, food, and sleep should be your first buttons to push if you’re trying to elevate your attitude and raise your energy. A great strategy for success in life is to become good at something, anything, and let that feeling propel you to new and better victories. Success can be habit-forming. Don’t let reality control your imagination. Let your imagination be the user interface to steer your reality.” ~Scott Adams the creator of Dilbert.
