The act of "believing" you have the ability to obtain success determines to a large degree whether or not you ever get it!

I’m a big believer that outlook determines your success. It’s a good idea to be a bit realistic on one level when you start your business as far as keeping your startup costs and thus your break even point low, but on another level, it doesn't help to have low expectations of your success. As the late Zig Ziglar once said, “Attitude, not aptitude, determines altitude.”

Hi Shawn! I agree with you on being realistic, as that has to factor in as well. And that Zig quote is spot on!
