Now, here's the next thing, either you run the project or it runs you. I've found out, when you start something at first, you're in charge. All of a sudden a year later, it's in charge.


Some of the companies I started, I'm telling you, I'm in control. A couple of years later, I'm out of control. At first, I've got it on the run. Two years later, it's got me on the run. Haven't got enough time, I'm dizzy with trying to get it all done.


So here's part of the key, that's to get in charge. So I'm going to take charge of my health. One of my albums is entitled, 'Take Charge Of Your Life.'


Take charge of your time, take charge of your resources which we're going to talk about next. Take charge of your health, you're the one that's responsible for it. It's not a requirement of society that you not have a heart attack and take care of your family. That's not a requirement of society. But you must make it a requirement of yourself.


Society doesn't require that you build a financial wall around your family – Nothing can get through. That's not a requirement of society. It's a requirement you impose on yourself to build a financial wall around your family – Nothing can get through.


So impose on yourself, this self-development of being in charge, taking charge of your life and your health, and your future, and your responsibilities and all the rest.


Next, reasonable time is enough time to achieve all of your goals. Just jot that down, reasonable time is enough time. I had to learn that reasonable time is enough time.


Here's why, it's not the hours you put in, it's what you put in the hours.
