Take Action.


How do successful people think?

They think beyond themselves and their world to see the big picture.

They remove distractions and mental clutter to remain focused.

They break outside of their box and explore options creatively.

They build a foundation on facts to see things realistically.

They find solutions in every situation by looking at them positively.

They consider the past and gain perspective by being reflective.

They reject the routine and don’t accept it just because it is popular.

They reach out to others to join them and think with them collaboratively.

They consider others and add value to them unselfishly .

They focus on results knowing that the return comes from the bottom line.

    yes, this is so true, but sometimes the big picture is fuzzy when ya worried about basic life necessities. Shelter, food….But with this in mind I still try to keep going to get to my big picture….The devil just loves meddling in my life

  11. They believe in ingenuity and change and that the ideas might come from anyone on their team.
    Great post Michael. I’m going to print it off and post it beside the photocopy machine at work. This list could also be titled “How do effective educators think (teachers, assistants, principals, superintendents, etc)?

    I am glad that you posted this. That is what I am working on to successful one day. But there is one thing that scares me: it is to invite or join other to collaborate because some times, some people are just not activists, or realists. they say one thing now and new they change their mind. Great post

  13. Happy New Year Michael!!

    I wanted to let you know that I nominated you for a group of blog awards….the details are on my page. Have fun with it and know how your writings have become a blessing to us all!!

  14. This is a nice list for the New Year that we are beginning. It gives us a lot of things to reflect upon. This line is my favorite:
    “They consider the past and gain perspective by being reflective”.
    It is through our reflective evaluation of our past that we can move forward to greater heights.
    Well done …
