DECIDE – You get to decide whether you are stuck or not.  Just because something is not going your way right now does not mean that you have to stop working at it.  You can keep going and try again.  If you decide that this is just a temporary setback on your path to success, then that is what it will be.

You are not stuck where you are unless you decide to be. – Wayne Dyer


REACH – The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. The best way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time.  No matter how big your dream or your goal it starts a small step. So, don’t focus on the big, audacious goal that you are dreaming of down the road.  That’s because in the short term, you might get discouraged by how much you do not know right now.  Instead, focus on the small step that you can take now and get started with what you know and what you can do in the short term.  Commit to growing and learning.  Leave yourself opening to possibilities and put in the work. Keep the faith and the rest will come.

In order to reach long-term victories, you have to set short –term goals. –  Craig Groeschel


BECOME – What you believe you can achieve.  If you honestly believe that you have the power to become what you envision then you will be more strongly motivated to take the actions that are necessary to make it a reality.  It all starts in the mind.  He who says he can and he who says he cannot, are both right.

You must trust in the image you hold in your mind.  Think and act like the person you want to become. – Bob Proctor
