5. 6. 7. 8. I use rewards (and consequences) to keep myself focused. For example, if I finish my report on time, I allow myself to take a coffee break. I believe that if I work hard and apply my abilities and talents, I will be successful.

I worry about deadlines and getting things done, which causes stress and anxiety. When an unexpected event threatens or jeopardizes my goal, I can tend to walk away, set a different goal, and move in a new direction. My biggest reward after completing something is the satisfaction of knowing I've done a good job. 10.I tend to do the minimum amount of work necessary to keep my boss

and my team satisfied. 11. I tend to worry about why I won't reach my goals, and I often focus on why something probably won't work. 12. I create a vivid and powerful vision of my future success before embarking on a new goal. 9. Total your results and remember that number. 44-60
