Read an Excerpt

Many people spend so much of their mental energy and powers of imagination on their long term goals and dreams that they often fail to place significant emphasis on the day today building block activities that make dreams a reality. All endeavors have fundamentals that serve as the foundations of higher success. You must learn to place value on the incremental steps that allow you to raise your level of competence. Build the small thoughts so completely that they become ingrained in your subconscious as part of your character. Crowd your mind and imagination with so many positive thoughts and images that there is little room or time for any other focus. Treasure the small basic steps that lead to victory.

In order to increase the effectiveness of your daily activities, envision yourself practicing ideal activities perfectly. You should always work on skills that produce your desired results. Make a commitment for excellence in these drills. In your mind make each action significant and important. Constantly contrast the quality of your work against the ideals that you have established. See each day as a complete journey with a destination of its own. Demand excellence and see yourself as a daily champion of details. As you put together successful days, they will turn into weeks and months full of concentrated efforts. Automatically, you will move closer to your goals and create the star that you have imagined. Larry Bird said, “One reason I was able to do well was that I mastered the fundamentals.” Magic Johnson added, “I told myself at an early age that I could never make enough passes in drills or at practice.” Michael Jordan concluded, “Everything I did, everything I achieved, can be traced back to the way I approached the fundamentals and how I applied them to my abilities.” These and other NBA stars recognized the need to put mental and physical power into every daily empowerment session. They built their success on the daily expansion of their skills.
