You began by building your confidence through the accumulation of experience and research. You maintained a constant commitment by action planning and steadfast perseverance. Now is the time to add the fuel to your engine of change: effort.

Your effort, either 110% or less than ideal, is your personal measurement to how well your are performing your tasks in order to change. You can NOT lie to yourself-when you do not give your best effort you know it.
Three Steps To Maintain Your Effort
