Business Mentors Strategy
The principle is simple: (1) create a dream that is so big that it will
keep you excited, (2) define the dream in minute detail, (3) live in
the dream so that it becomes real to you on the inside, (4) and
then hold on to it so tightly that no one can take it away from you.
James Allen
