So work on your SELF-IMAGE. Believe in your uniqueness and ability to make your own special contribution torepparttar world - no matter how small, or how dull, or unintelligent you think you may be. Everybody has some unique talent and there is no other like you in this world. There is a seed of greatness in each one of us - a precious resource to achieve something unique in our lives.


How much money you want to earn next year?

Write, "Byrepparttar 102056 end ofrepparttar 102057 year I will have X dollars/pounds inrepparttar 102058 bank" OR "I will have doubled my assets each year for five years (constant growth)" OR "By X (month and year) I will be a millionaire."

I've done this and shared it with my family. (Anyone else would think I'm totally "off my rocker"... if they don't already!)


These arerepparttar 102059 landmarks needed to help motivate you and keep you on track. Write down your short-term goals, too. Fewer than one in one hundred people do, but surveys at Harvard University inrepparttar 102060 United States show that those one percent arerepparttar 102061 super- achievers. It's your PLAN and no-one else's.

If you dream of being rich, quantify your dream into figures and specific dates. That isrepparttar 102062 first step to achieving wealth.

To become a millionaire on $20,000 a year and a 10 percent increase per year, you will need to do sideline activities (plenty, mate!) so you can save and invest some of your money.

REPEAT TO YOURSELF, "I will increase my income by $X this year."

That's a positive affirmation. So is: "I CAN do it, I WILL do it."

If you believe it strongly enough and desire it sufficiently, your mind will dorepparttar 102063 rest. It will show you HOW to achieve it by leading you torepparttar 102064 right path.

If there is no obvious solution,repparttar 102066 mind will find a way aroundrepparttar 102067 obstacle, or otherwise set you on a new track. The human mind has amazing, incredible POWER. NEVER EVER DOUBT IT!

The secret to success is a quantified goal and a deadline for achieving it. You will perhaps need some kind of change in your life to achieve your goals. Once set, your unconscious mind will work outrepparttar 102068 means to reach your goal.


Don't be paralyzed by fear, which prevents many people from living their dreams. Don't hesitate to takerepparttar 102069 steps necessary to achieverepparttar 102070 goal.

Don't underestimate your self worth. You are special and unique... and LIFE GIVES US EXACTLY WHAT WE EXPECT FROM IT: No more and no less!


.....and conquer your fears. Don't fear losing money.

Read Napoleon Hill's classic book, THINK AND GROW RICH.


A few thoughts to conclude...

MOST PEOPLE WANT TO BE HAPPY, BUT DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE LOOKING FOR. It isrepparttar 102071 same with money - not quantifying what you are looking for. Sadly, so many good people die without findingrepparttar 102072 'key'. They don't know how much they want to earn in a year. "When you don't know where you're going, you generally go nowhere." Take time out from your busy daily schedule. Time to meditate, to THINK THINGS THROUGH carefully.

BELIEVE that you can achieve your goals and crave it passionately. Use your IMAGINATION. Think and act successfully. * BELIEF isrepparttar 102073 key "seed" and this will develop and grow stronger daily..

* Have FAITH (great) that you WILL achieve your goal.

N.B: DEVELOP A POSITIVE ATTITUDE to get you throughrepparttar 102074 rough times Developrepparttar 102075 right ATTITUDE and LOOK FOR OPPORTUNITIES everywhere. They are right there within reach.


Haverepparttar 102076 COURAGE to do what you want to do. Don't give up on your dreams. Be bold and positive. Act "as if" you are already successful.

YOUR DESIRES IN LIFE: Write them down - everything you want out of life.

CONCENTRATE and FOCUS - it strengthensrepparttar 102077 mind. Choosingrepparttar 102078 RIGHT DIRECTION , your niche isrepparttar 102079 key first step in that it sets your course. Together with PERSISTANCE - every day "keeping on keeping on doingrepparttar 102080 little things to move you forward". Taking little steps one by one. These arerepparttar 102081 secrets of success, I believe. The pursuit of money should not be an obsession preventing you from enjoying life. "What shall it profit a man, if he shall gainrepparttar 102082 whole world and lose his soul?"

Enjoyrepparttar 102083 challenge, because inrepparttar 102084 great scheme of things that is life, how important is money anyway?

and always, remember...

If you lose happiness, you lose everything.

The greatest possession,repparttar 102085 greatest treasure in life is freedom... and wealth can give you that freedom. "Discover who is it you really are; becauserepparttar 102086 truth will set you free forever."

I hope this article encourages you to find whatever you are looking for in life... and always remember, money isn't everything. I believe peace of mind and JOY is much more important.

Goodnesss Gone on a Tangent

Written by Ruth Marlene Friesen

Continued from page 1

I like to think of myself as compassionate and discrete, but I have to admit I have gone overboard and been downright gushy, and sometimes given disproportionate attention forrepparttar wrong things. Or, I've been wrongly discrete by becoming secretive and timid and not even saying a few appropriate words. So I have to agree that this principle holds water.

But now is it really possible to look at someone who is exhibiting a wrong behaviour and thinking, "I know that person has a seed for [your example], so I will recognize and respond to that, and hope to bring him back on track." Assuming, of course, that as we dwell on their positive trait, it will be nurtured and grow stronger, and thus change that person.

Wouldn't that be first class intentional friendship?! Are you willing to experiment with this? Let me know your results. We may have material for a good book.
