Default Excellent.

right on Ankesh.

The only problem is...and I've seen this time after time, person after person...most skip over this SQUARE ONE principle and don't really know who they are or what they want.

Know yourself first.

So few really do, therefore, they are handicapped right out of the gate.

And er to paraphrase Robert Burns the poet;

I what gift our gawdie give us, to see ourselves as others see us.

Knowing who you are, what you want and WHY the real YOU wants it is the foundation of almost all success achieved through planning and execution.

Who your personal hero is tells a lot about you.

To succeed, you have to find the right animal - the personal hero whose thinking pattern is the most similar to you.

If you want fame, you probably don't want to follow Harvey Brody. You probably want to emulate someone like Richard Branson. If you however want longevity without overheads, Harvey Brody seems like an excellent person.

Success begins with you. Your personality. Don't make the mistake of being dazzled by a tiger when you are more like a giraffe.

Because there are 101 secrets to success out there. But only 1 secret right for you.

As Sun Tzu says: know yourself first.
