Sweet Tweets

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.

  1. Ha, Fay – when I first started reading this post, I was thinking, Robert Stevenson was an athlete turned author, what? Lol, had it in my head that you were going to write about the Scottish writer, Robert Louis Stevenson. What an idiot… sorry!

    I particularly like the tweet about those that you should associate with. 🙂 Integrity is extremely important!
