For anyone who has followed this blog, it comes at no surprise to hear that I am a big follower of Dr. Heidi Grant Halvorson's work. Two of her publications are among my most highly recommended pieces:
Nine Things Successful People Do Differently
Succeed: How We Can Reach Our Goals.
She even has a new book coming out soon that is available for pre-ordering, Focus: Use Different Ways of Seeing the World for Success and Influence.
Here is a video I found where she explains that everyone can be more successful at reaching his or her goals.
