1. Faith. You have to believe in something.
2. Direction. You must have direction if you're going to accomplish anything.
3. Consistent action. It's the best way to reach your goals.
4. Flexibility. Don't be afraid to make changes. When you accomplish one goal, it may effect/change the next one.
5. Have patience. Nothing happens instantaneously. Think of Rome, it wasn't built in a day. ;)
