^^^(one up) I wasn't trying to be mean. I agree with a lot of what you said. it just came across to me like you concluded that all the studies you were involved with meant the same as BS.

Here are my top 12 reason few people get what they want out of life.

1. they impose mental limitations on themselves

2. they feel they are not lucky

3. they never develop a plan for life or clear direction

4. no written strategy

5. they never invest into themselves

6. they never learn to get help from others

7. they never sell themselves

8. they don't know how to market themselves

9. lack of problem solving skills

10. no motivation

11. they never take action

12. they lack persistence
nice breakdown. now let me ask you this:

do any of that 12 reasons point you out? whcih one affects you?

do you know where Zig Zigler is from?

At the risk of sounding corny, I pay attention to all 12, but Marketing to me can be the trickiest. I am working on a web site that can be beneficial to up start businesses and promote myself at the same time so this area continues to be challenging to me.

Jenna Jameson wins knickers down.
BTW, When one of the founders and former CEO of Intel was asked what he thought was the key to his success, he answered 'paranoia.'

These two guys lost the keys to success. It'd be best if we didn't spend much time looking for them, though...
