What you do on a daily basis determines if you will be successful or you will be a failure. It's as simple as that.
With such an emphasis by so many on "get it now" and "instant gratification" is it any wonder things are the way they are? How many people attempted to get rich quick without regard to long term impact? How many people build their lives like a house of card?
It is likely what I just wrote will upset some people as well as affirm for others the importance of taking daily actions toward an outcome we desire.
The secret of your success lies in your daily routine. If there is something you really want to achieve can you honestly say you are doing something each and every day to create the outcome you seek?
