Thought of the Day
   -Truly successful people do what unsuccessful people don't/won't.
 Successful people don't sit around all day dreaming about how great it would be 'if'. They are on the ground working to achieve that dream, doing what it takes to be successful. There are some who cross the line either morally or ethically to be successful and I am not advocating that. At the end of the day you have to feel good about yourself and what you accomplish to be a real success.
 Here at Fremont it is very obvious who wants to be successful in school. They are the ones who are in class every day, on time, even when they aren't feeling their best. The successful students are doing their homework on time and are engaged in class, not texting their friends or listening to their iPod when they should be listening to their teacher. Successful students seek out help when they don't understand and before they fall behind.
 I have failed many times in my life but I've tried to learn from each failure. I was not a successful Real Estate agent. I worked a lot. I did Open Houses and sent emails to potential clients and I sat through numerous seminars but I didn't do the really hard stuff, the things that were uncomfortable, the things the really successful people did. I didn't do cold calls or canvas a neighborhood knocking on doors. I wanted people to find me and say "Sell my house, please." I wanted success to be easy. Trust me. It doesn't work like that.

In what things do you want to succeed? Are you willing to do the hard stuff, the things that will make you uncomfortable. If you aren't you should find something else to succeed in.
