One of the best pieces of advice I've ever heard goes something like this: If you want success, figure out the price, then pay it....Successful people don't wish for success; they decide to pursue it. And to pursue it effectively, they need a system. Success always has a price, but the reality is that the price is negotiable. If you pick the right system, the price will be a lot nearer what you're willing to pay.
