Sample Chapters

Success or Failure

Successful people develop certain traits, both innate and acquired. Not committing to invest in the price of success is choosing to pay the cost of failure.


Being optimistic is a choice and makes life more enjoyable. Optimists focus on what can be, not what is.

Determination and Discipline

The path to success requires both determination and discipline. It’s dedication to the discipline of success that will make it happen.


Faith offers success without strife. Your ability to handle adversity and free yourself to possibility thinking is in direct correlation to the strength of your faith.​
