The Heart and the Head


How many “do-it-yourself” books have you read? Of those, how many did you pick up a second time? And what about chapters you’ve read multiple times?

Scan your bookshelves. Invariably, you’ll come across a book with tattered pages and cover, a dogeared and underlined favorite. Your favorite book naturally falls open to “the best part,” a chapter that fills you with motivation and confidence. This chapter is one of those chapters.

If you want to run the entrepreneur’s race you must understand this truth: the attributes and skills required to experience success deal directly with what you have in your heart and in your head. Nothing else is more important. The stamina essential for entrepreneurial success springs from your mental, emotional, and spiritual reservoirs.
