Advice from the Titans
This is advice from two important titans, I would like to share with you
Paul Levesque- A wrestler
He is very busy hence he works out at night from 10 to 1. He says that children learn what they see. Thus it is of great importance to set examples.
Find differences between goals and dreams. Successful people have structured goals. Goals are something you know that you want, dreams are temporary. So instead of dreams have goals. Successful people have well structured goals. He had also told us to not live in the future but in the present.
Tonny Robbins- An author, trainer and investor
According to Tonny the morning is the most prosperous time. Thus he schedules three sessions for three minutes for three things daily. These sessions take place usually in the morning.
- for what I am grateful
- feel the presence of god

- These were just two titans I summarised for you, I recommend you read the entire book. Finding out about more titans will give you more idea about success thus enabling your mind to react to different circumstances
