“Never give up, and be confident in what you do. There may be tough times, but the difficulties which you face will make you more determined to achieve your objectives and to win against all the odds.” – Marta

There’s a huge difference between goals and wishes but they’re often confused as the same. Why? Because the desired end results appear to be the same and especially if they’re articulated with what appears to be passion. However, the difference comes down to action. Wishes are nothing but talk with no definitive action plan. Goals are real, but only with a definitive action plan. Dennis Waitley states it best, “A goal without a plan is just a wish.

“Whether you’re almost to the top or just barely hanging on, your next move will most likely require an extraordinary effort. Are you mentally and physically prepared to make that effort?”

A Message from Acceler8Success Founder, Paul Segreto

I recently watched “Rounders” for what was probably the 100th time I’ve done so. If you’re not aware of the movie, it’s basically about the dark side of underground high-stakes poker. Movies like this also seem to make a correlation to business for me. For instance, the main character, Michael McDermott says, “Why do you think the same five guys make it to the final table of the World Series of Poker EVERY YEAR? What, are they the luckiest guys in Las Vegas?” That makes me think of the same entrepreneurs that start one business after another, and all succeed. Do you think that’s luck? Hell, no! It’s knowing when to take a calculated risk, understanding the odds, hedging bets when necessary, being patient, exploring opportunities to increase your bankroll and knowing when to take a competitor head-on. It really is a mindset… But we must always remember, “You can’t lose what you don’t put in the middle. [pause] But you can’t win much either.”

Act swiftly. Act decisively. Make it happen. Make it count. #Acceler8Success
