I’ve always been inspired by people that have overcome their adversities and made a success anyway. Interestingly, this happens to occur for people starting off as millionaires and obviously also for those that didn’t have it stacked for them that way. Lets look at this for a second…
I’ve met many successful people that started with nothing and had to overcome major adversities to realise their dreams. Similarly, I’ve met some millionaires who have had to battle with a different host of mental giants. Where they start doesn’t seem to matter as much as where they see themselves heading.
These people, whether already rich or not, have some things in common. First, they tend to want to better themselves. They typically start reading books written by successful people that have gone before them.
Taking control of the audio material that they allow into their minds is another thing that these people own. “You have to start feeding your brain with successful thinking,” is what I remember one of them saying.
Also, these people seek to hang out with people that are more successful than they are. As the saying goes, “if you are the smartest person in the room, you need to find a new room.”
But most importantly, these people know where they are going. So much so that they have it written down. They write down what they will achieve as if it is already taking place. They speak in a manner that sounds bold, even audacious at times. Some may say they are bragging, but what they are doing is affirming what they already know to be the reality of their lives. The more they do this, the more it comes to pass.
So be bold! Write down your intentions for your life. Write down your goals so that you feel exhilarated when you read them. Write them down and review them constantly and, if you allow it, they must flow into your life as sure as a river runs downstream.
Have a fantastic week!
I leave you with the words of William Hutchinson Murray:
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back — concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans:
that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.
Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.“
Yours in success
