What to do when you get successful


(part of the “do this” directives)

1. Change yes to “Hell yeah!” or no.

Once successful, you need to switch strategies.

To get successful, you had to say yes to everything.

Now if you continue doing that, you’ll drown in all the opportunities.

Now say no to anything that makes you say anything less than “Hell yeah!

2. Keep momentum.

The temptation is to take it easy.

But like swinging on jungle vines, if you stop that forward motion you can never get it back.
