Are You Bargaining with Life for a Penny?
Each Wednesday, my mastermind group reads a chapter of Napoleon Hill's 'Think & Grow Rich." Here are highlights from Chapter 2, Desire - The Starting Point of All Achievement.
1. Have a definite burning desire backed by plans;
2. Everybody wishes for money. But, the accumulation of money can not be left to chance, good fortune or luck. There has to be a burning desire for it. There must be a money consciousness.
3. Whatever your desire, stick with it until it becomes a burning obsession. The method by which DESIRE for riches can be transmuted into its financial equivalent, consists of six definite, practical steps. (Listed in the chapter);
4. Stake your entire future on the ability to get what you want. Burn all bridges 'cause it's win or perish;
5. Be a dreamer. Remember, a dream comes through a multitude of activity (Ecclesiastes 5:3) Dreams are not born of indifference, laziness or lack of ambition. They don't come by a multitude of words. There is a difference between WISHING for a thing and being READY to receive it. No one is ready for a thing, until he believes he can acquire it. The state of mind must be BELIEF, not mere hope or wish;
6. Be tolerant and open-minded. They are practical necessities of the dreamer today, thus, translate your dreams into organized thought. Open-minded is essential for belief. Closed minds do not inspire faith, courage, and belief;
7. Life will yield what you demand. If you bargain with life for a penny - that's what you'll get. No more effort is required to aim high in life, to demand abundance and prosperity, than is required to accept misery and poverty. Our only limitations to receive abundance are those we set up in our minds.
If you are a tolerant, open-minded dreamer with a desire to succeed in network marketing, the Success in 10 Steps ebook will help you organize your thoughts. It was written by my good friend and mentor, Michael Dlouhy. He has 30+ years in network marketing, and is currently, actively today using what he teaches to build his own solid mlm business. Therefore, it is not the superficial or elementary knowledge you will find in other places (often with a heavy price). The Mentoring for Free System will help you devise your plan and learn the required skills to follow Michael's footsteps. The mastermind group will help you turn that desire into a burning obsession.
For a free audio on how to turn your whimsical fantasy into a burning desire, or to inquire about joining the weekly mastermind group, contact me. I am more than happy to help you.
Be empowered to prosper!
