“Goals are meaningless unless you link them with Determination, Action, Risk, and Enthusiasm. You must be Determined to accomplish a goal, take Action to attain it, Risk everything in the process, and remain Enthusiastic regardless of the obstacles. You must DARE to realize your goals!”-- Josh Stanton
