Today’s message is especially dedicated to the great Tocoloshi Zim in the UK.

How do you see yourself?

Do you think you are capable of becoming a great athlete, son/daughter, employee, musician, husband/wife or boyfriend/girlfriend?

Here’s a secret…

You can only get as high as your self-image.

If you think you are on the right track, and have the belief that you can do good things and attain greatness, you have the right mindset.

Let me explain it this way…

A new salesperson was given a one-hundred-square mile radius in which to sell tennis racquets. The first year, he generated $20,000 worth of business. The company was so pleased that they doubled the salesperson’s area the next year. But, the salesperson still only sold $20,000 worth of tennis racquets. The company was not happy, so they cut his area to half of its original size. That year the salesperson still sold $20,000 worth of racquets.

Why did this happen?

Because the salesperson had a $20,000-a-year self-concept, or self-image.

Sports, relationships, and school work the same way…

So you can only get as high as your self-image.

Remember, there are two types of people in the world. The two-percenters and the 98-percenters.

The two-percenters are all the successful people in the world.

The 98-percenters are everyone else.

The difference between the two is that the 98-percenters wait until they do something great, or win a tournament before they act like winners.

The two-percenters acted like winners before they ever won anything.

Act like the person you want to become and pretty soon you will become the person that you are acting like.

Today’s message is especially dedicated to the great Marty Burch.

“I realize that I don’t have limits. Limits are always influences that come from outside, from people who don’t believe in themselves and their abilities. I firmly believe in myself. I know that I can do whatever I want and that I’ll always reach my goals.”


This mindset helped Madonna become who she is today. Most people don’t set their sights high enough. And most people have low self-images.

Vince Lombardi said to strive for perfection and you’ll run into excellence.

If you strive for mediocrity, you will never achieve greatness.


You don’t have to be great at the start, but you need to start to be great.

Vince Lombardi said that the quality of someone’s life is directly related to that person’s commitment to excellence and victory.

I agree.

Do you want to be excellent and victorious at tennis, painting or sales? How about relationships?

Skills are important, but your attitude is the key.

Do you have the ability inside you to become great?

Of course you do. You just have to start taking action. Start acting how you want to become and you will start to become the way you act.

You can only become as great as your self image, so start being your own fan – your own inner coach instead of inner critic.

Start today!
