THE LAW OF DIMINISHING INTENT

The Law of Diminishing Intent says the time to act is when the idea is hot, and the emotion is strong. When we delay, our intent quickly starts to diminish.

Successful people feel fear, but they don’t let it stop them. They suffer failures because they are pushing themselves to do things that are uncomfortable. Successful people will tell you that if you aren’t failing occasionally, you aren’t even in the game. Continue reading “Don’t Let Your Mind Become a Prison”
