I'M FREE, INC - THE CANEI CURRICULUM - win or lose

To win, simply make the decision to win. Then commit to the decision. When you get committed to your success, you will be glad and excited you put the work in. 


Although you can’t guarantee me that you will succeed, just guarantee that you will share the heavy lifting and show up for your own success. 


To lose? Simply do nothing, or do that which you have always done; you will get what you have always gotten.
