3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
I am rediscovering those more intangible qualities essential to success - imagination and belief. If you cannot both imagine your success and believe in it, it will prove elusive. I have delved back into my library of accrued wisdom to re-learn techniques for strengthening both belief and the imagination, and so banish the self-sabotaging activities of worry and anxiety.
Problems are of course the ever-present clouds in the sky of life experience that can merge to form storms. The key is to avoid simply staring at them in despair and get on with your day wearing the right "clothes" of faith, imagination and determination.
I have learned that in bouts of enthusiasm you think you have learned when you really haven't. You have to be without something and experience the consequences to realize its importance.
4. TODAY'S QUESTION FOR YOU
Can you imagine success? Do you believe in it?
