Action Steps to Help You Succeed

Here are basic action steps to help you succeed.

Underscore books. It is difficult to remember everything that happens each day; the names of all the people you meet, the places you have been to or the things you have been told or learned. Therefore, the practice of gathering knowledge and keeping it on file for future reference is a worthy own that will play handsome dividends.
In reading books, some of it's content will appeal to you especially if you found them useful and informative and sometimes you will want to make note of them for future reference. I have always used what so called "undersore method" when reading a reference book so that paragraphs of interest can easily be found again.
Use the underscoring method while reading a book. It's either with colored pencil or marker and then underscore the ideas that appel to you. With specific passages underscored you will be able to quickly get to the "meat" of each chapter.

Be a Note-Taker. Another step is to be what so-called "note-taker" Obtain a notebook and jot down ideas that appeal to you. You may learn of a particular success technique from new acquaintance or from a lecture you have attended. Write them in your notebook for future references. Always keep your notebook handy for quick insertion of appealing success ideas.


Be a "3 x 5 Card Carrier". Get a stack of cards, 3 inches by 5 inches and write or type appealing ideas on them. Perhaps it might be a "thought of the day" you've copied from a calendar or newspaper. Perhaps it is something you have heard on the radio. I it has a message that appeals to you, copy it and place it in your success file. Carry a different card with you each day and refer to the message on it whenever you get a free moment.

Build a Success Scrapbook. Clip articles of interest that pertain to success from newspapers and magazines. get into the habit of clipping and filing bits of useful information. Place them in a loose leaf binder. Make it your personal success scrapbook of selected thoughts, ideas and success stories about other people.
