A journey of 1,000 miles must begin with one step.

The key to success is to take what you have learned (or relearned) in this book and put it into action. You can’t do everything at once, but you can begin. There are 64 principles in this book. If you’re not careful, that could feel
a bit overwhelming to you. So here is all you have to do:
Go back to Section I and start working through each principle one at a time, in the order they are presented—take 100% responsibility for your life and your success, clarify your life purpose, decide what you want, set specific and measurable goals for all the parts of your personal vision, break them down into specific action steps you can take, create affirmations for each one of your goals, and begin the practice of visualizing your completed goals every day. If you’re smart, you’ll also enroll someone to be your accountability partner, or you’ll start a mastermind group to do these first steps
with you.
Then begin taking action on your most important goals every day except your
R & R Days. Pay the price by doing whatever it takes, ask for whatever you
need with no fear of rejection, ask for and respond to feedback, commit to never-ending improvement, and persist in the face of whatever obstacles may come up. Now you’re up and running toward the completion of your major goals.
Next, to build and maintain momentum, create a program for cleaning up your incomplete, work on transforming your limiting beliefs, pick a habit to work on developing for the next quarter, commit to reading one of the books in “Suggested Reading and Additional Resources for Success” (and then another and another), and purchase a motivational audio program to listen to in your car or when you are exercising. Then schedule a vacation with your spouse or some friends, and enroll in a personal development seminar to be completed sometime in the next 6 months. Start saying no to the people and things that distract you from your major goals, and find a mentor or hire
a coach to advise you and keep you on track.
