EXPECTATIONS

When you treat people as if they're no good, they'll prove you right almost every time. Expectations make a significant difference in performance and results.

Is that reasonable…

Plan to WIn

Too often, when you visualize all the things that could go wrong, you never even make the attempt. You're defeated before you even start, by your own imagination.

You don't need any money,… Continue
