Here are some questions and answers:

Why are some people more motivated than others?

People are not automatically motivated. Some people realize that their attitude is really important and they do specific things each day that help keep them motivated.

Why is it important to set goals?

Having no goals is like a ship without a rudder. It will move, but not necessarily get to its destination.

Why is it important to write goals down?

Writing goals, in detail, is like creating a blueprint for our lives. The mind gets a clear picture of what we’re working toward.

Is it helpful to have pictures of our goals?

Yes, it’s very helpful. However, I do not recommend have too many pictures. The mind can get confused and not focus on any one goal. Get a picture of your next goal, your next reward and look at it every day.

What are affirmations?

They are statements of what we want, stated as if that goal or attribute is already accomplished, with an emotion added. Write just a few affirmations, of the most important things you want to accomplish, and declare those affirmations the first thing each morning and the last thing each night.

Why is reading important?

Reading builds character. However, don’t read several personal development books, once each, and expect to see good results. It’s better to pick one or two books and read each one at least three times. It’s better to read one book three times than three books once each.

What books do you recommend?

I recommend two books that are the foundation of personal development and goal setting: “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie and “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill.

How can I gain confidence?

Reading the books I mentioned will help. I also recommend the “Dale Carnegie Course”.

Why is staying out of debt and saving money so important?

Being in debt deteriorates our confidence. We feel powerless and insecure. Stop charging, start paying in cash, pay off your debts, and save money. Money in the bank give us confidence and allows more good things to happen in our lives.
