Take Charge of Your Life
Every day millions of people let their inner fears stop them from creating a better life for themselves. No one will deny that it is scary to step out of your comfort zone, but once you challenge your fear and take action, you can attain great things. The best thing is that you do not have to go it alone.
1. Dream Great Dreams
It does not cost anything to dream and daydreaming can be the beginning of an exciting journey to a better place in life.
2. Make a Decision
In every decision we make, we exert a power to shape and control our own life.
3. Form A Support Team
Share your ideas with another important person in your life. No one has all the answers, but you do need to know who to trust.
4. Make a Game Plan
Begin today. The baseline is where you are now; it is your line of scrimmage. The goal line is where you want to be in the future.
5. Keep Score
Hold yourself accountable. Don’t count on someone else to be prodding you along the way. You may need a coach, but prodding is not what a coach is for in my opinion.
6. Reward Yourself
Kudos from others are great, but it is also important to reward yourself.
The thrill of the game of life is charting a course, facing challenges head on, and holding someone else's hand along the way. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. Either way, when you focus on the big picture and refuse to let past mistakes keep you down, you create a future that is filled with possibility. So live to the fullest in the present moment and make the most of it to achieve your life purpose.
|"Most people never run far enough on their first wind to find out they've got a second. Give your dreams all you've got and you'll be amazed at the energy that comes out of you." - William James, 1842-1910, Psychologist and Author|

This book virtually tells Jo’s story, or at least what she did to make it work. It is a really constructive book.
It's filled with some good, practical stuff about how to virtually change the way you do things in order to move up in a career or job. Even for the person who does not work or is retired, the book has some valuable lessons. She writes in a very simple to understand style and the book is even more useful in that there are pages at the end of the various sections for the reader to fill in.
Those pages also help you to establish goals, set a timeline, keep score on yourself, figure out where the goal line is and even how to celebrate your achievements. There are hundreds of self-help books out there and they keep on coming. This is a little bit different because it actually allows you to keep score on yourself. It tells you about dreaming those dreams, but being realistic about them. It tells you about when to hold and when to fold.
For anybody in any job or position anywhere, it is well worth the time to seek out this book from GoalMinds publishers. - Lou Major
