Think for a minute of the most successful people you know.
What qualities do you observe in them?
Most likely, they are talented, decisive, and action-
oriented. Maybe they have dynamic, positive, and charismatic
personalities. They might even possess extraordinary
leadership, management, and organizational skills.

differences — every successful person is self-motivated.

what to do or when to do it.
* Their interest and desire does not depend on outside

* They possess an inner drive for achievement, action, and
success that keeps them striving for a goal, pushing for
advancement, and competing for success.
* They will not and cannot be stopped.

motivated… and that is what separates the winners from
