No matter what you do for a living, the key to success is motivating yourself, each and every day, according to Geoffrey James, a veteran business journalist who now writes a daily column for Inc.com. “Most people don’t realize that motivation mostly emerges from minor changes in your own behavior,” says James. Here’s how to remain a go-getter, even when the going gets rough:

1. Realize that YOU are in control. You cannot control the outside world, but you can control your emotional reaction to it.

2. Accept where you are. Life is like those signs that read “You Are Here.” You can get somewhere else only if you know where you are now.

3. Adopt a positive vocabulary. Use strong adjectives (e.g., “fantastic”) to describe what’s good and weak words (e.g., “annoying”) to describe what’s not.

4. Condition your mind. Train yourself to think positive thoughts while avoiding negative thoughts.
