From a fitness magazine, probably Muscle and Fitness, circa 1987:

Set goals for yourself.

Make them believable and clearly defined. Write them down every morning, vividly imagining those goals throughout the day. Once achieved, create another. Do not put this off.


Avoid negative people.

They put junk into your subconscious. You cannot help them unless they are ready to be helped. They ar rarely ready.


Actively seek positive people.

Make it a point to spend more time with them. Positive people are gems. Cherish every one you meet.


Eat extremely well.

Maximum nutrition levels create greater strength, tissue growth, mental clarity and a superior attitude.


Increase your self-discipline.

Resist the urge to become comfortable with your efforts. Fight against laziness. Stay hungry.


Learn to delay gratification.

Do what must be done now, rather than what you like to do.


Never make the mistake of serving two desires.

You can only serve one.


Consider spiritual values.

Research this area closely. It can profoundly affect your attitude. Approach it with an open mind.


Use time wisely.

Do the most productive thing possible at every given moment.


Learn from mistakes.

Analyze why they happened. Use them as tools for growth.


Develop a sense of humor.

Don't always take everything so seriously.
