DISRUPT THE STATUS QUO!

     
1.

Ideas are not enough. You must be action oriented to improve your future.

 

 
2.

Don't just think but act. You get results not only from thinking but from acting.

 

 
3.

You have ideas. You want to achieve. You want opportunity.

 

 
4.

But what are you still doing in your comfort zone? The comfort zone is a dangerous place.

 

 
5.

"I wanted to", "I was going to" cannot put on a light bulb, not to talk of moving you forward.

 

 
6.

Aren't you tired of hoping and criticizing? Stop defending status quo that locks you down.

 

 
7.

GO on the offensive now with your Cisco Internetwork PLUS.

 

 
8.

What is the use of ideas without action?

 

 
9.

Start becoming the achiever you deserve to be.

 

 
10.

MAKE SURE THERE IS NO STANDING ROOM FOR EXCUSES.
