Refuse to discuss it again. Decide upon one specific action that you are going to take immediately to exert full control over every part of your life. Most people are confused about their goals, values, and ideals, and as a result, they go back and forth and accomplish very little.
Men and women who become leaders, on the other hand, with the same or even fewer abilities and opportunities, go on to great accomplishments in whatever they attempt. Life is lived from the inside out. The very core of your per- sonality is your values. Your values are what make you the person you are. Everything you do on the outside is dictated and determined by your values on the inside, whether clear or fuzzy.
The greater clarity you have regarding your values on the inside, the more precise and effective will be your actions on the outside. The Five Levels of Personality You can imagine your personality by thinking of a target with concentric rings. Your personality is made up of five rings, starting from the center with your values and radiating outward to the next circle, your beliefs.
Your values determine your beliefs about yourself and the world around you. If you have positive values, such as love, compassion, and generosity, you will believe that people in your world are deserving of these values and you will treat them accordingly.
Your beliefs, in turn, determine the third ring of your per- sonality, your expectations. If you have positive values, you will believe yourself to be a good person. If you believe your- self to be a good person, you will expect good things to hap- pen to you.
If you expect good things to happen to you, you will be positive, cheerful, and future oriented. You will look for the good in other people and situations. The fourth level of your personality, determined by your expectations, is your attitude.
Your attitude will be an out- ward manifestation or reflection of your values, beliefs, and expectations. For example, if your value is that this is a good world to live in and your belief is that you are going to be very successful in life, you will expect that everything that happens to you is helping you in some way. As a result, you will have a positive mental attitude toward other people, and they will respond positively toward you. You will be a more cheerful and optimistic person.
You will be someone who others want to work with and for, download from and sell to, and generally help to be more successful. This is why a positive mental attitude goes hand in hand with great suc- cess in every walk of life. Your actions on the outside will ultimately be a reflection of your innermost values, beliefs, and expectations on the inside. This is why what you achieve in life and work will be determined more by what is going on inside of you than by any other factor.
As Within, So Without You can tell how people think, most of the time, by looking at the conditions of their outer lives. A positive, optimistic, goal- and future-oriented person on the inside will enjoy a happy, successful, and prosperous life on the outside, most of the time. Aristotle said that the ultimate aim or purpose of human life is to achieve your own happiness. You are the very hap- piest when what you are doing on the outside is congru- ent with your values on the inside.
When you are living in complete alignment with what you consider to be good and right and true, you will automatically feel happy and positive about yourself and your world. Your goals must be congruent with your values, and your values must be congruent with your goals. This is why clari- fying your values is often the starting point to high achieve- ment and peak performance. Values clarification requires that you think through what is really important to you in life.
You then organize your entire life around these values. Any attempt to live on the outside in a manner that con- tradicts the values you hold on the inside will cause you stress, negativity, unhappiness, pessimism, and even anger and frustration. Your chief responsibility to yourself in the The unhappiest people are those who are attempting to live in conflict with what they truly value and believe. Trust Your Intuition Self-trust is the foundation of greatness.
Men and women begin to become great when they begin to listen to their inner voices and absolutely trust that they are being guided by a higher power each step of the way.
In fact, almost every human problem can be resolved by returning to your values. The answer is simple. You always demonstrate your true values in your actions, and especially your actions under pressure. When- ever you are forced to choose between one behavior and another, you will always act consistent with what is most im- portant and valuable to you at that moment. Values, in fact, are organized in a hierarchy. You have a series of values, some of them very intense and important and some of them weaker and less important.
One of the most important exercises you can engage in to determine who you really are and what you really want is to organize your values by priority. Once you are clear about the relative importance of your values, you can then organize your outer life so that it is in alignment with them. Examine Your Past Behavior There are some insightful ways to help you determine your true values.
First of all, you can look at your past. How have you behaved under pressure in the past? What choices did you make with your time or money when you were forced to choose?
Your answers will give you an indication of your predominant values at that time. What raises your self- esteem? What increases your sense of self-respect and per- sonal pride? What have you accomplished in your past life that has given you the greatest sense of pride and satisfac- tion?
These answers will give you good indications of your true values. What is it that, deep down in your heart, more than anything else, you would like to be, have, or do in life? What would you like someone to say about you at your funeral? How would you want your family, friends, and children to remember you? How would you like people to talk to them about you?
What kind of a reputation do you have today? What kind of a reputation would you like to have sometime in the future? What would you have to begin doing today in order to create the kind of reputation that you desire? They fell on hard times and became associated with the wrong people.
They behaved in ways that were illegal or socially unaccept- able. Some were even convicted and sent to prison for their But at a certain point in life, they decided to change. They thought seriously about the kind of person that they wanted to be known as, and thought of, in the future. They decided to change their lives by changing the values that they lived by. By making these decisions and sticking to them, they changed their lives.
And what others have done, you can do as well. If you were already an outstanding person in every respect, how would you behave toward others? What sort of impression would you leave on others after you had met them and spoken with them?
Imagine you could be a com- pletely excellent person. How would you be different from who you are today? How Much You Like Yourself In psychology, your level of self-esteem determines your level of happiness.
This is the way you see yourself and think about yourself in your day-to-day interactions with others. Your self-image is shaped by your self-ideal. Your self-ideal is made up of your virtues, values, goals, hopes, dreams, and aspirations. Here is what psychologists have discovered: The more your behavior in the moment is consistent with what you feel your ideal behavior should be, the more you like and respect yourself and the happier you are.
On the other hand, whenever you behave in a way that is inconsistent with your ideal of your very best behavior, you You feel yourself to be per- forming below your best, below what you truly aspire to. As a result, your self-esteem and your level of happiness decrease. Perform at Your Best The moment that you begin walking, talking, and behaving in ways that are consistent with your highest ideals, your self-image improves, your self-esteem increases, and you feel happier about yourself and your world.
For example, whenever you are complimented or praised by another person, or given a prize or an award for an ac- complishment, your self-esteem goes up, sometimes dra- matically. You feel happy about yourself. You feel that your whole life is in harmony and that you are living congruent with your highest ideals. You feel important and valuable. Your aim should be to deliberately and systematically cre- ate the circumstances that raise your self-esteem in every- thing you do.
You should live your life as if you were already the outstanding person that you intend to be sometime in the future. Know What You Believe What are your values today with regard to your work and your career?
Do you believe in the values of integrity, hard work, dependability, creativity, cooperation, initiative, ambi- tion, and getting along well with people? People who live these values in their work are vastly more successful and more highly esteemed than people who do not.
What are your values with regard to your family? Do you believe in the importance of unconditional love, continuous People who practice these values consistently with the important people in their lives are much happier than people who do not. What are your values with regard to money and finan- cial success? Do you believe in the importance of honesty, industry, thrift, frugality, education, excellent performance, quality, and persistence?
People who practice these values are far more successful in their financial lives than those who do not, and they achieve their financial goals far faster as well. What about your health? Do you believe in the impor- tance of self-discipline, self-mastery, and self-control with regard to diet, exercise, and rest? Do you set high standards for health and fitness and then work every day to live up to those standards?
People who practice these values live lon- ger, healthier lives than people who do not. Successful, happy people think about their values and how they can live and practice those values in every part of their lives every single day. The big payoff is that the more you live your life consistent with your values, the happier, healthier, more positive and energetic you will be.
Be True to Yourself Perhaps the most important value of all is that of integrity. This was a great insight for me! Once you have decided that you are going to live consistent with a value, your level of integrity determines whether or not you follow through on your commitment. The more you discipline yourself to live consistent with the very best you know, the greater is your level of personal integrity. And the higher your level of integrity, the happier and more powerful you will feel in everything you do.
Truly great men and women are always described as having high levels of integrity. They live their lives consis- tent with their highest values, even when no one is looking. Mediocre men and women, on the other hand, are always cutting corners and compromising their integrity, especially when no one is watching.
Live in Truth with Yourself and Others Decide today to be a man or woman of honor. Resolve to tell the truth and to live in truth with yourself and others. Crystallize your values in each area of your life. Write them down. Think of how you would behave if you were living consistent with those values, and then refuse to compromise them for any reason.
Once you accept complete responsibility for your life and for everything that happens to you and then create an ideal picture of your perfect future and clarify your values, you are ready to begin setting clear, specific goals in every area of your life. You are now on the launching ramp and ready to take off toward the stars.
Make a list of your three to five most important values in life today. What do you really believe in and stand for? What qualities and values are you best known for today among the people who know you?
What do you consider to be the most important values guiding your relationships with others in your life? What are your values regarding money and financial success? Are you practicing these values daily? Describe your picture of an ideal person, the person you would most want to be if you had no limitations.
Write your own obituary to be read to your friends and family at your funeral, exactly as you would like to be remembered. What changes could you make in your behavior today that would help you to live in greater harmony with your values?
This law says that whatever you believe with conviction becomes your reality.
You are not what you think you are, but what you think, you are. Proverbs In Matthew 9: They determine what happens to you.
Personal growth comes from changing your beliefs about what you can do and about what is possible for you.
Would you like to double your income? Of course you would! Here is the question: Do you believe that it is possible? How would you like to triple your income? Do you believe that is possible as well? Whatever your level of skepticism, let me ask you a ques- tion. And what you have done before, you can do again—probably over and over—if you just learn how.
You simply must believe that it is possible. Everything you do or achieve in your life, every thought, feeling, or action, is controlled and determined by your self-concept. Your self-concept precedes and pre- dicts your levels of performance and effectiveness in every- thing you do. Your self-concept is the master program of It is the basic operating system.
Everything that you accomplish in your outer world is a result of your self-concept. Garbage In, Garbage Out Here is an interesting discovery about self-concept. Even if your self-concept is made up of erroneous beliefs about yourself or your world, as far as you are concerned these are facts and you will think, feel, and act accordingly.
As it happens, your beliefs about yourself are largely sub- jective. They are often not based on fact at all. They are the result of information you have taken in throughout your life and the way you have processed that information. Your beliefs have been shaped and formed by your early child- hood, your friends and associates, your reading and educa- tion, your experiences—both positive and negative—and a thousand other factors.
The worst of all beliefs are self-limiting beliefs. If you believe yourself to be limited in some way, whether or not it is true, it becomes true for you. If you believe it, you will act as if you were deficient in that particular area of talent or skill.
Overcoming self-limiting beliefs and self-imposed limita- tions is often the biggest obstacle standing between you and the realization of your full potential.
Ignore the Experts Albert Einstein was sent home from school as a young man with a learning disability.
His parents were told that he was not capable of being educated. They refused to accept this diagnosis and eventually arranged for him to get an excellent education.
Albert Schweitzer had the same problem at school as a boy. His parents were encouraged to apprentice him to a shoemaker so that he would have a safe, secure job when he grew up. Both men went on to earn doctorates before the age of twenty and to leave their marks on the history of the twentieth century.
According to an article in Fortune magazine on learning disabilities in business, many presidents and senior execu- tives of Fortune corporations today were diagnosed in school as being not particularly bright or capable.
But by virtue of hard work, they went on to achieve great success in their industries. Thomas Edison was expelled from school at age seven. His parents were told that it would be a waste of time to spend any money educating him because he was not particularly smart or capable of being taught anything.
Edison went on to become the greatest inventor of the modern age. This kind of story has been repeated thousands of times.
Self-limiting beliefs, sometimes based on a single experi- ence or a casual remark, can hold you back for years. Most people have had the experience of mastering a skill in an area where they thought they had no ability and being quite sur- prised at themselves.
Perhaps this has happened to you. You suddenly realize that your limiting ideas about yourself in that area were not based on fact at all. Alfred Adler said that it is the natural Many people, because of their negative beliefs, most of which are erroneous, falsely consider themselves to be lim- ited in intelligence, talent, capability, creativity, or skill of some kind.
In virtually every case, these beliefs are false. The fact is that you have more potential than you could ever use in your entire lifetime. No one is better than you and no one is smarter than you.
People are just smarter or better in different areas at different times. Howard Gardner of Harvard University, the founder of the concept of multiple intelligences, you pos- sess at least ten different intelligences, in any one of which you might be a genius. Unfortunately, only two intelligences are measured and re- ported throughout school and university: Butyoucouldbeageniusintheareasofvisual-spatial intelligence art, design , entrepreneurial intelligence busi- ness start-ups , physical or kinesthetic intelligence sports , musical intelligence playing musical instruments, writing music , interpersonal intelligence getting along well with others , intrapersonal intelligence understanding yourself at a deep level , intuitive intelligence sensing the right thing to do or say , artistic intelligence creating works of art , or abstract intelligence physics, science.
You have within you, Your job is to find out which one. Your responsibility to yourself is to cast off all these self- limiting beliefs and accept that you are an extraordinarily capable and talented person.
You are engineered for great- ness and designed for success. You have competencies and capabilities that have never been tapped.
You have the abil- ity within yourself, right now, to accomplish almost any goal you can set for yourself if you are willing to work long enough and hard enough to achieve it. They can therefore be unlearned, especially if they are not helpful. When you came into the world, you had no beliefs at all—about yourself, your religion, your political party, other people, or the world in general.
And these are almost always self-limiting beliefs. Think of Yourself Differently I have taught these principles to tens of thousands of people throughout the world. I have file drawers full of letters and e-mails from people who had never heard this idea of self- limiting beliefs before.
But once they heard it, they changed their entire attitudes toward themselves. They began to see themselves as far more competent and capable in key areas of their lives than they had ever been before.
In no time at all, they began transforming their lives and changing their results. Their incomes doubled and tripled and quadrupled. Many of them became millionaires and multimillionaires. They went from the bottom of their com- panies to the top, from poor performers in their companies to some of the best, and sometimes to the highest earning people in their businesses.
After they changed their beliefs about themselves and their personal potentials, they learned new skills and took on new challenges. They set bigger goals and threw their whole hearts into achieving them.
By questioning their beliefs and by refusing to accept that they were limited in any way, they took complete charge of their lives and careers and created new realities for themselves. And what countless others have done, you can do as well. If you could choose any set of beliefs at all, which beliefs would be the most helpful to you?
Select this belief: And as it happens, this is how the top people think in every field. Look for the Good Successful people look for the good in every situation. They know that it is always there. No matter how many reversals and setbacks they experience, they expect to get something good out of everything that happens to them. They believe that every setback is part of a great plan that is moving them inexorably toward achieving the great success that is inevi- table for them.
If your beliefs are positive enough, you will seek the valu- able lesson in every setback or difficulty. You will confidently believe that there are many lessons that you have to learn on the road to achieving and keeping your ultimate success. What this means is that when you start, you may not feel like the great success that you desire to be.
You will not have the self-confidence that comes from a record of successful achievement. You will often doubt your own abilities and fear failure. You will feel that you are not good enough, at least not yet. You will actually act yourself into feeling the way you want to feel by the Law of Reversibility.
If you want to be one of the top people in your business, dress like the top people. Groom yourself like the top people. Organize your work habits the way they do. Pick the most successful people in your field and use them as your role models. If possible, go to them and ask them for advice on how to get ahead more rapidly. And whatever advice they give you, follow it immediately.
Take action. When you start to walk, talk, dress, and behave like the top people, you soon will begin to feel like the top people. You will treat other people like the top people do. You will work the way the top people work. You will start to get the results that the top people get. In no time at all, you will be one of the top people yourself. The Secret of a Sales Manager A friend of mine is a very successful sales manager.
After he carefully interviewed and then selected a new salesman, he would take the salesman to a Cadillac dealership and insist that he trade in his old car for a new Cadillac.
The salesman He would be frightened of the cost of the car and the huge monthly payments involved. But the sales manager would insist that he download the Cadillac as a condition of employment. What do you think happened afterward? First, the salesman would drive the car home. His wife would almost have a heart attack when she saw that he had bought a new Cadillac. But after she had settled down, he would take her for a ride around the neighborhood in the new car.
The neighbors would see them driving in a new Cadillac as he waved on the way past. He would park his new Cadillac in front of his house or in his driveway. People would come over and admire it. Gradually, imperceptibly, at a subconscious level, his attitude toward himself and his earning potential would begin to change. Within a few days, he would begin to see himself as the kind of person who drove a new Cadillac.
He would see him- self as a big money earner in his field, one of the top per- formers in his industry. And time after time, almost without fail, the salespeople in this organization became sales super- stars. Their sales performance jumped and they earned more than they ever had before. Soon the payments on the new Cadillac were of no concern because their incomes were so much greater.
You achieve this by challenging your You reinforce the development of new, life-enhancing be- liefs by increasing your knowledge and skills in your field to the point where you feel equal to any demand or challenge. You accelerate the development of new, positive beliefs by setting bigger and more exciting goals in every area.
Finally, you act continually as if you were already the person that you desire to be. Your aim is to reprogram your subconscious mind for success by creating the mental equivalent in everything you do or say. You act as if you believe that you already have the capabilities and competencies you want.
You behave like a positive, optimistic, and cheerful person toward everyone. You act as if your success is already guaranteed. You act as if you have a secret guarantee of success and only you know about it. You realize that you are developing, shaping, and control- ling the evolution of your own character and personality by everything that you do and say every single day.
Since you become what you think about, you should only say and do what is consistent with your self-ideal, the person you most aspire to be, and your long-term future ideals. You should only think and talk about the qualities and behav- iors that are moving you toward becoming the person you want to be and toward achieving the goals that you want to achieve. Look into yourself and question the areas of your life where you have doubts about your abilities or talents.
You might ask your friends and family members if they see any negative beliefs that you might have. Often, they will be aware of self-limiting beliefs you have that you are not aware of yourself. In every case, once you have identified these nega- tive beliefs, ask yourself, what if the opposite were true?
What if you had the ability to be extraordinarily success- ful in an area where you currently doubt yourself? What if you had been programmed from infancy with genius ability in that particular area? For example, what if you had within you, right now, the ability to earn and keep all the money you could ever want, throughout your life?
If you absolutely believed these ideas to be true, what would you do differently from what you are doing today? Keep Your Words and Actions Consistent Your beliefs are always manifested in your words and ac- tions. Make sure that everything you say and do from now on is consistent with the beliefs that you want to have and the person that you want to become. In time, you will re- place more and more of your self-limiting beliefs with life-enhancing beliefs.
Over time, you will completely re- program yourself for success. When this occurs, the trans- formation that takes place in your outer life will amaze you and all the people around you.
If you were an extremely competent money manager, how would you handle your finances? Identify the self-limiting beliefs that could be holding you back. How would you act if they were completely untrue?
Select a belief that you would most like to have about yourself at a deep inner level. Pretend as if you already believe this to be true about yourself. Look into the most difficult situation you are dealing with right now. What valuable lessons does it contain that can help you to be better in the future?
What would you do differently if you believed that you were destined to be a big success in life? Who else in your life could you influence by telling them how good they are and how successful you think they are going to be? J A M E S A L L E N In more than thirty-three hundred studies of leaders con- ducted over the years, there is a special quality that stands out, one quality that all great leaders have in common.
It is the quality of vision. Leaders have vision. Nonleaders do not. Earlier I said that perhaps the most important discovery in all of human history is that you become what you think about most of the time.
What is it then that leaders think about most of the time? The answer is that leaders think about the future and where they are going and what they can do to get there.
Nonleaders, on the other hand, think about the present and the pleasures and problems of the moment.
They think and worry about the past and what has happened that cannot be changed. Leaders think about what they want and what can be done to achieve it. The good news is that when you begin to think about your future as well, you begin to think like a leader, and you will soon get the same results that leaders get.
Just think! The further you think into the future, the bet- ter decisions you will make in the present to assure that that future becomes a reality. Create a Five-Year Fantasy In personal strategic planning, you should begin with a long- term view of your life.
You should begin by practicing ideal- ization in everything you do. In the process of idealization, you create a five-year fantasy for yourself and begin thinking about what your life would look like in five years if it were perfect in every respect. Imagine No Limitations By combining idealization and future orientation, you cancel or neutralize the process of self-limitation.
You imagine for You imagine that you have all the time, talents, and abilities you could ever require to achieve any goal you could set for yourself. No matter where you are in life, you imagine that you have all the friends, contacts, and relationships you need to open every door and achieve anything you could really want. You imagine that you have no limitations whatsoever on what you could be, have, or do in the pursuit of the goals that are really important to you.
He analyzed men and women who had achieved only average results at work for many years but who suddenly exploded into great success and accom- plishment. You project forward several years and imagine that your life is perfect in every respect.
You then look back to where you are today and ask yourself this question: What would have to have happened for me to have created my per- fect future? Refuse to Compromise Your Dreams When you practice idealization and future orientation, you make no compromises with your dreams and visions for yourself and your future. Instead, you dream big dreams and project forward mentally as though you are one of the most power- ful people in the universe.
You create your perfect future. You decide what you really want before you come back to the present moment and deal with what is possible for you within your current situation. Start with your business and career. Imagine that your work life was perfect five years from now. Answer these questions: What would my work situation look like? What would I be doing? Where would I be doing it? Whom would I be working with?
What level of responsibility would I have? What kinds of skills and abilities would I have? What kind of goals would I be accomplishing? What position or status would I have in my field? Practice No-Limit Thinking When you answer these questions, imagine that you have no limits. Imagine that everything is possible for you. But we greatly underestimate what we can accomplish in five years. If your financial life were perfect, what would be your answers to the following questions? How much would I be earning?
What sort of lifestyle would I have? What kind of home would I live in? What kind of car would I drive? What kind of material luxuries would I be providing for myself and my family? How much would I have in the bank? How much would I be saving and investing each month and each year? How much would I want to be worth when I retired? Imagine that you have a magic slate. You can write down anything you want. You can erase anything that may have happened in the past and create whatever picture you desire for your future.
You can clean the slate at any time and start over. You have no limits. Imagine Your Perfect Family Life Imagine your perfect family life and relationships five years in the future and answer these questions: What would your family life look like? Whom would you be with?
Whom would you no lon- ger be with? Where and how would you be living? What kind of home would you have? What kind of relationships would you have with the most important people in your life five years from now if everything were perfect in every respect?
Unsuccessful people always wonder whether or not a particular goal is possible. If you were a perfect physical specimen five years from now, what would be your answers to the following questions? How would you look and feel? What would be your ideal weight? How much would you exercise each week? What would be your overall level of health? What changes would you have to start making today in your diet, exercise routines, and health habits to enjoy superb physical health sometime in the future?
You are making a significant contribution to the world around you. If your social and community status and involve- ment were ideal, how would you answer these questions?
What would you be doing? What organizations would you be working with or con- tributing to? What would be the causes you strongly believed in and supported, and how would you become more involved in those areas? Just Do It! They are moving all the time. They are always busy. If they have an idea, they take action on it immediately. On the other hand, low achievers and nonachievers are full of good intentions, but they always have an excuse for not taking action today.
If you were developed to the highest level possible for you and there were virtually no limit , five years from now answer these questions: What additional knowledge and skills would you have acquired? In what areas would you be recognized as absolutely excellent in what you did?
Once you have answered these questions, the next ques- tion you ask is: How do you attain the skills and exper- tise needed to lead your field in the years ahead? Design Your Perfect Calendar Decide how you would like to live your ideal lifestyle, day in and day out.
Design your perfect calendar from January 1 to December What would you like to do on your weekends and vacations? How much time would you like to take off each week, month, and year? Where would you like to go? How would you organize your year if you had no limi- tations and complete control over your time?
But the reverse of this is that with an exciting future vision, you will be continuously motivated and stimulated every day to take the actions necessary to make your ideal vision a reality. You will be more positive and optimistic. You will feel internally motivated to get up and get going every morning because every step you are taking will be moving you in the direction of something that is important to you.
Resolve to think about your ideal future most of the time. Remember, the very best days of your life lie ahead. The hap- piest moments you will ever experience are still to come. The highest income you will ever earn is going to materialize in the months and years ahead. The future is going to be better than anything that may have happened in your past. There are no limits. The clearer you can be about your long-term future, the more rapidly you will attract people and circumstances into your life to help make that future a reality.
The greater clarity you have about who you are and what you want, the more you will achieve and the faster you will achieve it in every area of your life. Imagine that there is a solution to every problem, a way to overcome every limitation, and no limit on your achieving every goal you can set for yourself.
What would you do differently? What would have to have happened for your world to be ideal? Imagine your financial life was perfect in every way. How much would you be earning? How much would you be worth? What steps could you take, starting today, to make these goals a reality? Imagine your family and personal life were perfect. What would it look like? What should you start doing more of, or less of, starting today? Plan your perfect calendar. Design your year from January to December as if you had no limitations.
What would you change, starting today? Imagine that your levels of health and fitness were perfect in every way. What could you do, starting today, to make your vision for yourself into a reality? What one action are you going to take immediately as the result of your answers to the questions above? It stops you from chasing butterflies and puts you to work digging gold. We have known throughout the centuries that all human action is purposeful. Humans achieve goals automatically, as long as they set them in the first place.
Once you become absolutely clear about what it is you want and then discipline yourself to do more of those things that move you toward this goal, your ultimate success is virtually guaranteed. If goal achieving is automatic and built into your system, why is it that so few people have goals? Set this as a goal, work on it every day, and never stop working at it until you get there.
The uncommon man is merely the common man thinking and dreaming of success and in more fruitful areas. Melvin Powers Get Around The Right People Your choices of people with whom to live, work and socialize will have more of an effect on your success than any other factor.
