Look at the big picture and aim high.

Just do it as NIKE will say.
Without action, all dreams and aspirations are mere wishful thinking. To be successful, you must be action oriented and quit the habit of putting off things.
Procrastination is your enemy. It causes loss of opportunities and even life.
Successful people always strive for excellence. Make a demand on yourself to be the best at whatever you do.
Do not limit yourself but rather be passionate and focused because excellence will set you apart attracting referrals, promotion and wealth.
There is no substitute for excellence.
Nothing worthwhile can be achieved without self discipline. Put aside what you ordinarily will like to do and give attention to what you need to do.
Self discipline is very important because anything you do in life is either taking you closer or farther away from your goals.
