Think of your attitude as the mental filter through which you experience the world.
- I can't / I can
- focus on problems / solutions
- find fault in others / look for the good in others
- focus on what's missing / count his blessings
- sees limitations / sees possibilities
Your attitude is your window to the world.
Keep your window clean. In the end, nobody can do it for you.
Lesson 2 - You're a human magnet
"We become what we think about."
"What the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve."
-- Napoleon Hill
"A man is what he thinks about all day long."
-- Ralp Waldo Emerson
Positive thinking should be your dominant thoughts.
Change your thinking
"What we sincerely believe regarding ourselves in true for us."
-- Orison Swett Marden
Become aware of what you say to yourself all day.
Listen to audio self help every day. They key is repetition. Until you begin to implement them.
Lesson 3 - Picture your way to success!
You must first clearly see a thing in your mind before you can do it.
-- Alex Morrison
You and only you are in control of your mental movies.
You can alter your interpretation of the event.
You can consciously choose to view the situation differently.
Create an image of your desire outcome.
You have control over the pictures that occupy your mind.
Vision is the art of seeing things invisible to others.
-- Jonathan Swift
Your images will become sharper over time. The key is to spend several minutes each day running these new movies in your mind.
If you can dream it, you can do it.
-- Walt Disney
If you don't take control and develop your own movies, you'll continue to replay the old ones.
Lesson 4 - Make a commitment… and you'll move mountains!
What this power is I cannot say; all I know is that it exists and it becomes available only when a man is in that state of mind in which he knows exactly what he wants and is fully determined not to quit until he finds it.
-- Alexander Graham Bell
Commitment is the essence of the Ultimate secret: willingness to do whatever it takes.
- If it takes 5 steps to reach my goal, I'll take those 5 steps
- If it takes 55 steps to reach my goal, I'll take those 55 steps
- If it takes 155 steps to reach my goal, I'll take those 155 steps
You first must be commited to do something before you'll persist to achieve it.
The magic of commitment
When you make a commitment and are willing to do whatever it takes, you begin to attract the people and circumstances necessary to accomplish your goal.
You create a mental picture of what it would be like to achieve it.
You must be active and seize the opportunity as they appear.
Until one is commited there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kill 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 otherwise never have occured. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way.
-- W. H. Murray
Doors will open
You don't have to know at the outset of how to achieve your goal.
When you have the willingness to do whatever it takes, the right steps are often suddenly revealed to you.
A word of caution
Everything won't be rosy. Life will test you to see how serious you are about achieving your objective.
You will be tempted to abandon your goal.
You become a champion by fighting one more round. When things are tough, you fight one more round.
-- James J. Corbett
One person with a commitment is worth more than 100 people who have only an interest.
-- Mary Crowley
The reward for those who persevere far exceed the pain that must precede the victory.
Time to make a commitment
If you have a goal in mind, the question is: "Am I willing to do whatever it takes to achieve this goal?"
