It is so hard to believe that we are already at Chapter 8 of Act Like A Success, Think Like A Success. What an interesting literary journey we have taken as we continue to explore increasing our ability to Motivate, Inspire, Dream and Achieve.
It seems I say this every week, but I liked this chapter. The process of viewing the achievement of our dreams from the perspective of climbing a mountain was easy for me to visualize in my mind. I especially liked the many questions, Mr. Harvey poses throughout for our personal self evaluation. Each one made it a little bit more difficult for me to identify extra questions for reflection. And you know what? I couldn’t!
So this week, I am using a different format – no questions for reflection. Just a summary of my favorite quotes. I am also going to post later in the week, a peek into my answers to the questions presented. Yes, you read that correctly – I am going to post my answers to some of the questions posed in Chapter 8. This is definitely going to be a scary process for me because I feel that each answer would be like a peek into my diary. But, it is my hope that by sharing with you I can not only keep myself accountable but also give you the courage to share your answers with your support system.
Without further delay here are my favorite quotes of the week. If you would like to post your answers or make any comment regarding this week’s post, I will open the comment section for your viewing pleasure.

Ok, that is it for this post. A little shorter than normal and I feel like it’s missing a key element but I think answering the questions posed by the author himself will you get you further in your progression towards the top of the mountain. Tune in next time for a peek into my personal progress.
Til next time,
