A man who wants something will find a way; a man who doesn't will find an excuse.

- Stephen Dolley Jr.

Do you see possibilities or problems?

It's been said that some of the smartest people around would make lousy entrepreneurs. How can that be? The fact is, some people are so smart they can easily see all of the problems, roadblocks, and snafus that they'll need to overcome to succeed. They can think of all kinds of reasons why their idea won't work. This knowledge can overwhelm any thoughts of possibilities or dreams. When you think of your goals, do you focus on the positives of making it happen, or the negatives of potential barriers? To reach your goals, you gotta really want them. More importantly, you gotta really believe that you can do it. Think more about why you CAN make it happen instead of why you can't. No more excuses.

    Goals need to be realistic and not one of mere fantasies. My goal is to lose my last 20 pounds which is realistic. If I said I am going to lose 20 pounds and have a body like super model that would not be realistic and would never happen

    I had a goal to start a successful business 30 years ago and it was very successful. That is because I was realistic in what I could and could not do. Goals have to based in reality and not in fantasy to work out positively.
