If you want people to bring your ideas to life, show an interest in theirs.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Sure, you're biased and you know full well your ideas are superior. 

But don't let that stop you from listening to other people's ideas from time to time. Little expressions of attention and interest go a long way.

Persistence is Self-Discipline in Thought then Action.

The Thinking Behind the Tweet

Brian Tracy said, "Persistence is self-discipline in action."

I believe desired Actions are always preceded by desired Thoughts.

In order to achieve Goals we must first discipline our Thoughts then those disciplined Thoughts will govern our Actions.

Self-discipline is an essential ingredient of success.

First go through then go beyond the motions.

Go the extra mile; catch someone's attention; deliver, impress, and influence.

Band-aids don't ease the discomfort of negative thinking.

Shape up, Man, you gotta improve your attitude!  

Great advice in theory - useless advice in reality. 

If you want to help people with negative thinking, think first about your own attitude, thoughts and action then learn how to improve by replacing negative thinking with new thoughts.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Of course, Sir Winston Churchill comes to mind, “Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” 

Churchill, singularly, inspired a nation.

But, there's more to it...

Churchill inspired himself. 

[...in support of inspiration and daily affirmations]

When a combination of skills, goals, & plans is not present, people give up their dreams & hope.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Skills, goals and plans will always be required. 

Without these basics, work is demoralizing and frustrating.

Without these basics, unless they have tremendous will, people give up their dreams and hope.
