Great achievers are often loners who find sustenance in the pursuit of something they feel strongly about - caring, of course, what others think but not needing interaction or confirmation to continue their quest.

Both of these books had some (4 comments)

Over the last year I have read every book or article I could find on the subjects of willpower and self-discipline. As we entered challenging economic times, I felt that an understanding of how people dealt with adversity would be important. Here is what I have concluded: All of willpower and self-discipline is about an understanding of how your mind works. Willpower is really just a manifestation of focus and here are the five steps you need to understand in order to improve your focus: 1. Awareness - during stressful times you need to listen to your thoughts. What exactly is (0 comments)
