1. Think about what you want to accomplish
2. Know you are able to do it
3. Give it your best shot
4. Don't give up
Even if you don't get the desired outcome the first time you'll know how to get closer the next.I heard this from somewhere, "Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you'll land in the stars". I love that quote. Makes me feel that if I didn't do something right I still accomplished something.
