Robert Stevenson is a former All-American athlete turned author and public speaker. His best-selling book How To Soar Like an Eagle in a World Full of Turkeys is a guide to being extraordinary and is widely acclaimed.
Stevenson recently wrote Pocketful of Tweets on Success, a collection of powerful principles written as tweets to be easily remembered and shared. He passes out bookmarks with a list of tweets he considers significant. A few are excerpted below:
- I wake up every morning knowing my success for today will not be based on yesterday’s victories nor tomorrow’s dreams. I must deliver TODAY.
- You can be beaten but not defeated, captured but not conquered, knocked down but not kept down. Success is a choice-attitude-mindset.
- In the overall scheme of success, being self-disciplined is the most important trait you must possess.
- The power of EXTRA – EXTRA effort, EXTRA study, EXTRA preparation, EXTRA time. . .when you put EXTRA into everything you do, you will succeed.
- If it is to be, it is up to me. Quit waiting for someone else to make your success happen.
- Associate with those who have integrity, character, intelligence, discipline and drive –good things will happen.
- Measure people by actions, not words, performance, not intentions, deeds, not wishes, and heart, not wealth.
- Winners dream, decide, devise and do. There is nothing passive about success.
