You cannot be worried, be angry, be frustrated and make money.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

You can be habitually worried, angry, and frustrated...many people prove that.

But, how many successful people have you met who make habits of worry, anger, and frustration?


Worry, when held in controlled quantity, can motivate.

Anger has the ability to generate action...mostly destructive, but occasionally productive.

Frustration: the worst of the three; unproductive, inactive, unhealthy.


If you look into a mirror and see a worried, angry, frustrated face, you are peering into the eyes of a person who will never be wealthy. 

...on the other hand, you just may find that face smiles at you, laughs, gets into a better mood, and accomplishes something constructive.

Time management tip: file files. Their name lets us know what we are supposed to do with them.

Well...that is why they call them files isn't it?

I mean - those things don't have that name because of some other qualities...shouldn't we do our part to help them live up to their name yet not be confused with their less-flexible, more-abrasive cousins?

Necessity walks hand-in-hand with Courage and their finest offspring is Confidence.

We must not underestimate the courage and self-confidence required to think and act in new ways.

We must not forget the key role Necessity can play, especially in the face of major challenges.

Courage and Confidence are the keys to creativity, invention, & innovation.

You gotta go the first mile before you start talkin' about going the extra mile.

The Thinkin' Behind The Tweet

Everyone knows, "Talk's cheap". Yet, some people forget it. They get all carried away talking about going extra miles when they haven't managed to complete the first mile. They have taken some steps, cut some corners, etc., however, they haven't got that first mile done yet.

Clichés are cheaper than most talk: Actions are far more telling; Achieved goals speak volumes.
