A 212° commitment!

Answer these questions.

Are you ready to be more successful?
Are you ready to have more fun and love in your life?
Are you ready to be all you can be?
If you said yes to any of those questions you will need to make a 212° commitment to the things you are doing with your life?
Okay Jim you say, so what is a 212° commitment?
Well, it’s related to a law of science…
At 211 degrees, water is hot.
At 212 degrees, it boils.
And with boiling water comes steam.
And steam can power a locomotive.
The one extra degree makes all the difference.
You got it - Right? Many times in business and in life, it's that one extra degree of effort that separates the good from the great.
You cannot get what you've never had unless you're willing to do what you've never done.
