– I’ll make it work, not mater what, using the system that I have – even if it kills me!

“Kill the monsters, while they are little” so to speak. It is not just me that talks about this in the Financial Advisor Industry;

“You cannot achieve anything personally or professionally from a starting position of low self-esteem.” – Dan Sullivan.

Thoughts are real forces –

What ever you believe you are right.
