The key to success is to decide what’s most important to you and then take massive action each day to make it better, even when it doesn’t look as if it’s working.
I’ll give you an example. Have you ever heard of a guy named Colonel Sanders? Of course you have. How did Colonel Sanders become such an unbelievable success? Was it because he was born wealthy?
