1. Based on your current day-to-day life, what do you expect to achieve in 5 years from now?

2. To bring home how every motion you do is your choice, start saying it. “I choose to get up”, “I choose to go to the door”, “I choose to open it”, “I choose to walk out”, “I choose to close it”, etc. As stupid as that sounds, it brings it home how much we truly are deciding everything we do.
No one makes you do anything. They especially cannot make you miserable nor happy but they sure can influence you. You choose what you do, what you emote and what you believe. You can choose to be happy where you're at instead of waiting for it to someday, maybe show up.

3. Act like the person you want to become.

4. How would the person I would like to be, do the things I’m about to do?

5. One day or day one. You decide.

6. Show me your routines, habits and rituals and I'll show you your future.

7. You're only one decision away from a totally different life.

8. Become so financially secure that you forget that it's payday.

9. My goal is to build a life I don't need a vacation from.

10. I don't say "I can't afford that." I ask "How can I afford that?"

11. Your life would be so different if you just chose confidence.

Ralph Waldo Emerson: "Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities will no doubt have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day: begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense."
