To feel the power of this text, place yourself in the “I” 🙂
Falling down is an accident, but staying down is a choice.
Will I choose to keep going on or will I give up?
I am relentless.
It is my time.
It is the time for me to be who I am.
I will not hide behind my failure. I will learn from them and do better.
I will stop hiding.
Deep down I know I’m special. I can’t lie to myself.
I choose to get up or stay down.
I am Great!
I don’t quit!
Success come at a price and I’m ready to do what ever is needed.
I want to prove myself.
I get up and keep going on.
Learning is the basis of evolving.
When I say learning, I don’t mean only the school. I mean taking the time to learn something new.
Don’t take a stand on your knowledge. Always keep an open mind to something that could modify what you already know.
When you learn something new, take the time to reflect on it.
“ To read without reflecting is like eating without digesting.” – Edmund Burke
Deep inside of you, there’s an evaluator. It will tell you if that knowledge is good for you or not. This doesn’t mean that this knowledge is good or bad, it just means that it’s good or bad for you.
What is not good for you could be good for someone else. So, what you know isn’t always good for someone else.
What is a power book?
It’s a tool to help you keep your spirit up.
How to use a power book?
You write with your best writing:
The quotes that means something to you. Choose only the best ones.
You keep that book with you. Read some of it every day. Write in it as you get inspired or find something great to put in it.
It’s a book only for you. You should not let anyone read it.
“A quotation at the right moment is like bread in a famine.”
Use the power book to lift your spirit up and keep working on your dream. May this book become the bread you need when you’re hungry for some energy boost.
Blaming someone will not solve a problem.
“All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame them, it will not change you.”
When you want to solve a problem, you need to understand what it means to you and what you should change about it.
No amount of blame will solve a problem.
Responsibility for what you did is all up to you.
The only way to change a situation is to take responsibility and find a solution.
Invest your energy into finding the solution instead of finding who to blame.
“Great leaders don’t rush to blame. They instinctively look for solutions.
If you can focus your will, you’ll get anything you want.
The concept of time is a security set up into our reality. If we don’t keep our mind focus on something, the universe don’t take notice of it.
“To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.”
Dream big dream. Then take action toward them. Be consistent and the universe will surrender.
If keep on changing your mind about your dream, they will never take shape in reality.
“Stay focused, go after your dreams and keep moving toward your goals.”
LL Cool J
Your senses are bringing you a lot of information. If you learn to listen to your inner feeling, you’ll find out that it’s your best source of information about what is happening around you.
“Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.”
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
We all have access to our inner feelings. Most don’t listen to them.
When you get a feeling that you should do something, then it would be wise to find a way around it.
“There’s an inner feeling you get when you get in a situation to do well in a game. It’s hard to explain.”
Only you can get it. No one can listen to your inner feeling.
As you are the only one to get it, no one can tell you if it’s ok to listen to it or not.
Don’t wait! You’ll never find the perfect set up.
Take action and go for it.
Adjust and keep going on.
If you wait, things will never get better.
Those who waits never get anywhere. Those who waits are also the ones whining.
Do you want to be among the whiners or the winners?
Always do your best.
There’s no perfection, only the will to reach for it.
“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”
Do your best for yourself first. People will notice as you best yourself again and again.
In time, the best are the peoples who bested themselves on and on. They don’t compare themselves with others.
“Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.”
You need to develop the habit of being constant in your effort to besting yourself every day.
What do you like to do?
In what you like to do, find something that you are very good already in it. Then focus on developing it to become the best.
No one can do it for you. You’ll have to work hard and keep doing so.
I’ll recommend a great book from Og Mandino!
Strength is directly linked to your action as you face fear.
Don’t compare yourself with others.
“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’”
Experience will help you understand and learn.
It’s way better to take action and make mistakes. Mistakes are the stones on which success is built.
“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.”
Without experience, success is just an illusion.
Here’s a good book about courage.

What drives you to keep going on?
Did you take the time to think about it?
There’s always a point where we choose to keep going on or quit. As we reach that point, we find out if our drive is good enough to keep us going on.
“Courage is found in unlikely places.”
J. R. R. Tolkien
You need to find a great drive if you want to reach success.
“The road to success is not easy to navigate, but with hard work, drive and passion, it’s possible to achieve the American dream.”
Easy success is an illusion. If you think that it can be real, then you are an easy prey for scammer.
Success is simple. Success needs hard work and a deep drive.
I would suggest a good book about Willpower. Get it here.
