The first rule of success, and one that supersedes all others, is to have energy.
It's important to know how to concentrate it. Focus your energy on important matters instead of frittering it away on meaningless things.
Nothing will add more power to your life than concentrating all your energies on a limited set of goals. You must focus the full power of all you are on what you have a burning desire to achieve if you truly want to be successful.
Gather in your resources, rally all your faculties, marshal all your energies, focus all your capacities upon attaining your objectives. You must be single minded, and drive for the things you have decided upon.
The sun's rays do not burn until brought to a focus.
