Solving Problems Can Be As Easy As 1,
2, 3 ... Plus A Lot Of Hard Work
John Tassone is a straight-talking guy who worked hard, took risks,
and built a Chicago insurance business from nothing into a huge
success. It didn�t happen overnight and he came close to failure
In his new book, Go For It!, he distills the very best and
most important things he learned on the streets of Chicago into an
easy to read guide for others to learn by and follow. The stories
and insights are very timely. Here are a few of the gems he offers
Believe in yourself. If you don�t believe in yourself, no one else
Your life is an epic story in itself, whether you want to believe it
or not. Know your path, and know where you are going. Don�t stop and
look around to see if the grass is greener somewhere else. It
probably isn�t. Instead of worrying whether the grass is greener
elsewhere, devote all your efforts to improving your life, making it
the best it can be for yourself and your family.
Yes you must have goals, but take the accidental goals that fall in
your lap along the way.
Christopher Columbus set out to find a faster route to the rich
trade goods of the Indies by sailing westward with the intent of
making it around the world. Insead, he just discovered America.
Alexander Graham Bell was trying to invent a hearing aid to help his
deaf mother. Oh well, he invented the telephone.
About 12 years ago, a friend lost a job at the hardware store and
joined the ranks of the unemployed. Tassone suggested he create a
menu of all the things he was capable of doing as a handy man and
plastering the neighborhood with photocopies. The response was so
astounding he created his own successful painting business.
Decide what you are going to do and then do it, do it, do it. You
can�t sit back and say �I�d really like to do that� or �I hope I can
do it,� or �That�s my goal, and I want to achieve it.� You have to
say �I�m going to do it,� and believe no other option, outcomes, or
excuses are acceptable.
In 1937, America�s military was ranked 19th in the world behind
Poland. The Life magazine photo from 1938 showed an aerial view of
what was described as half of the nation�s entire mechanized
military. You can count 146 trucks, tanks and jeeps, with about a
dozen motorcycles. We won World War II. We decided to win.
Tassone believes that we can still do that today. But first we need
to confront and conquer the problems at hand, then we can believe in
ourselves, have goals, and decide what we are going to do. Finally,
we must do it.
Go For it!

skills, thinking positively, setting long-range goals, and believing
in your ability to achieve them that you are likely to find. The
knowledge contained in this powerful book is designed to motivate
and guide you in developing the attitude you need to succeed in
whatever you do.
