Success-How Will You Do IT?
A path to success:

1) Purpose

Make the decision, and don't look back! Along with the decision comes singleness of purpose. A true decision will create focus.

It was once said that no man could serve two masters. However subtle it is said, you can only focus in one direction.

2) Passion

A true decision to go all-in, will produce passion! You effort will be solid when you choose. All-in, implies that your training, reading, conversation, and fellowship will be around your decision.

All these things bring your inner most being to the surface and guess what, you’re all-in! What flows will be from that very decision.

Trash in / trash out OR Great stuff in / passion out!!!

3) Patience

Plant it and it will grow, not overnight, but in its season. The farmer will plant his seeds after the ground is prepared. Once the seed is planted, the ground must be attended, watered, cultivated… The sun must shine, the rain will come, and the seed will grow.

The best wines come from a very wet season, and then something changes. The season becomes dry. It seems as if the crop will be lost, but with patience comes the harvest. They make the wine and you have the most amazing wine.

4) Presence

With the three points we’ve discussed, you have a presence about you that will attract other positive people.

Others may be groupies, waiting to be lead, but you will do what needs to be done. You’ll be the one in the front. You’ll be the one listening to the tapes, reading the books, and plowing the ground. (Sorry, I drifted back a point.)

Surrounding yourself with positive people you will be able to tackle some high obstacles. Everest shouldn't be climbed alone! It's not worth the risk.

Now that I’ve used a ton of clich├ęs, make your choice and go for it!

Great points to remember on a regular basis. This information sounds like a great idea for a uStream show.
