Sometimes you don't need to go to Plan B. What you need is a true friend helping you to keep fighting for Plan A. - KQ

Lifestyle changes only occur when those changes fit and stick to what you are already doing. A new habit needs a buddy other than your mates, co-workers, or family. Those relationships are already sufficiently complicated without adding more into the mix. Your habit buddy is simply a tactic that works by encouraging your new but timid habit to buddy up with an existing but more experienced one. Long term success is yours when you realise that it is not you having to stick to the new habit rather it is you finding how to make that new habit stick to you.

Do not tolerate for a minute the idea that you are prohibited from any achievement by the absence of in-born talent or ability. This is a lie of the grandest order, an excuse of the saddest kind. - Maxwell MALTZ in Psycho-Cybernetics 1960

For too many people, the true answer to why they are not winning is due to bad choices. Simply put – people choose not to win.  Excuses are people choosing not to win.  Believing that taking first place is the only acceptable victory is choosing not to win.  Deciding that your best is not good enough is choosing not to win.
