Achieving Your Promises
How to Reverse Your Circumstances and Realize Your Dreams

Chapter 5

The title of Chapter 5 is Building Your Business

Timothy offers practical advice on building your own business by networking—always collecting people’s business cards because you never know when you’ll need them. Always be honest. Guard your image—how you dress and act, how others perceive you affects your success. Carry yourself with power—keep your head up, but look approachable. Timothy asks us to look at what excuses we are making, what are our reasons for not succeeding, and instead start looking for results of our success. Start taking action. Among the role models he uses is T. Harv Eker. Timothy asks that we motivate ourselves by making a list of our positive qualities and ask our friends and family what our positive qualities are—you may be surprised at the regard people hold you in that is beyond what you imagine for yourself. Then think how those qualities may be used to help you succeed in your new career or business.
