Today I watched another episode of Eric Thompson's TGIM videos called 'Don't Cheat Yourself'. Basically, he was talking about how if you work hard and do what you're supposed to do during first, second, third, and fourth quarter living, you will reap the benefits. His first point was that whatever you want in January of the new year is based on what you did for the last 12 months, so you have to start working towards your future now. His second principle is that you are where you are because of what you did yesterday, but what you did yesterday will not help you next year. You have to be constantly improving if you want to see change. The third point is that you don't get out of life what you want, you get what you earn. No one will want for you to be successful as much as you want for yourself to be successful so you have to invest in yourself before you expect someone to invest in you.
