Excerpts

"Success depends on a plus condition of the mind and body, on power of work, on courage. A minus condition cannot be continued if you hope to lead a fuller life."

Dorthea Brande, Wake Up and Live!

Success starts with how you see yourself.

The choices you make, however subtle they appear at the time, accumulate and create the person you become. Do you always pick the "safe" color choice? Do you listen to the advice of others about what is best for you? Do you simply follow the crowd and go along with the current style?

A reminder of how easy it is to fall into the habit of going along with the crowd is the old adage, "If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you always got." If you do something differently today, how will your life be different tomorrow? What will you "get" that you've never gotten before?

Getting to know yourself and discovering what looks and feels best for you is infinitely more satisfying and empowering than accepting automatically the choices as they are presented to you.

Put yourself in a plus condition by starting now to make your best color choices to create your fuller life of success.
