Brian Tracy is not technically a test prep expert. However, this internationally respected motivational public speaker and self-development author certainly knows a lot about what leads to success on test day. Tracy’s self-professed goal may be to help you achieve your personal and business goals faster and easier than you ever imagined, but his wisdom can also support serious score improvement if applied the right way:
The average person works at fifty percent or less of their potential. Your job is to unleash that extra fifty percent.
You have to put in many, many, many tiny efforts that nobody sees or appreciates before you achieve anything worthwhile.
Your most valuable asset can be your willingness to persist longer than anyone else.
I’ve found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often.
ON GOAL SETTING
Goals allow you to control the direction of change in your favor.
All successful people are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.
Whatever you dwell on in the conscious grows in your experience.
Imagine no limitations; decide what’s right and desirable before you decide what’s possible.
You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.
Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.
No one lives long enough to learn everything they need to learn starting from scratch. To be successful, we absolutely, positively have to find people who have already paid the price to learn the things that we need to learn to achieve our goals.
