“Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.” – Napoleon Hill
How often did you want to do something but were waiting for the right moment?
How often did you have a good idea but did not put it into action because you thought you still needed more knowledge, more experience, a better partner…?
We tend to be perfectionists, even though there is no such thing as perfection. We want it to be really good and because we think we are not quiet ready, we postpone it until we think we are – which in most cases is never.
Don’t let that happen to you and your ideas and dreams. Start TODAY, start NOW to make it happen. As Mike Litman says:
“You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going.”
Get it going today! NOW is the only time you can change your future 🙂
In Napoleon Hill’s book “Think and Grow Rich” I read the following poem by an unknown author that hits the nail about us not believing in our dreams and therefore not asking for them fully. It is sad how little so many of us value ourselves.
I bargained my life for a penny
And life would not pay more,
However I begged at evening
when I counted my scanty store.
For life is a just employer;
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.
I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of life,
Life would have willingly paid.
Please, don’t limit yourself in any way. Don’t just ask for a penny. Write down your wildest dreams in as much detail as possible and start living the possibilities and opportunities that will come your way.
Do you know the classic “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill?
It is the most read book on success until today. THE book on success and it was written because he was challenged by the great Andrew Carnegie (Steel magnate who donated most public libraries in the US, had Carnegie Hall build and much, much more).
In this video you will actually meet Mr. Hill as he talks about how he made the commitment to devote 20 years of his life to study success:
A full chapter of the book is dedicated to the concept of the MASTERMIND. In my eyes (and in his) mastermind groups or partnerships are extremely powerful, actually there is almost no over Achiever that has not had a mastermind partner in some way or other.
It is also one of the most mis-used words in today’s coaching and mentoring environment. To make sure you understand the concept fully – in the way it was meant to be – I will give you the chapter of Napoleon Hills book that talks about the concept of the Mastermind as my gift. Just add your name and email in the box underneath and the Mastermind Chapter of Napoleon Hill’s classic will be on the way to you.
Enjoy it and if you are interested to join a true mastermind group (small group of like minded success seekers) get in touch with me. The TO BE Mastermind is our most exclusive group which rarely has openings. You can become a member only after having gone through a pre-qualification process because masterminding means commitment to your success and that of the group.
You deserve the success you desire. If you believe that 2011 is your year to succeed join our next Mastermind Focus Group now. You will start with a one on one pre-meeting to find out if masterminding is for you. If it is not, you will get a prompt refund. If it is for you, you will join a group of like minded success seekers that work together and hold each other accountable in order to truly live their dreams.
If you do not conquer self, you will be conquered by self
– Napoleon Hill
We are still talking about Mark Victor Hansen’s quote:
“You are not who you think you are but what you think you are.“
Yesterday we talked about our belief system and how we perceive ourself or how other’s perceive us is not necessarily who we are. Today I want to talk about the second part of the MVH quote and that is “What you think you are”.
We have probably all heard what you focus on expands. Or Napoleon Hill’s “You become what you think about all day long.” This is correct and can be seen in every life situation.
Let me give you some examples. In the last few years since the bank crashes more people than usual are struggling financially. When you can’t pay the rent or your mortgage fear sets in, you start to worry. And what do you focus on? You focus on on the worse case, on how you might lose your apartment or house, your job or your car. Your thoughts are constantly turning around this central point and many of us feel paralyzed by fear and worry.
And remember, what you focus on expands!
O do you want more worries?
Of course you don’t. Still while you are focusing on what is not working in your life this is what you will get more of.
Our thoughts are energy and that energy vibrates and attracts similarly vibrating energy = more of the same. So as you are repeatedly thinking about the same things, especially when you do it with emotion as we tend to do when we are afraid, you create an even stronger energy field that attracts more of the same. That is a scientifically proven fact today.
And that is what Mark Victor Hansen and Napoleon Hill mean with their quotes. We become what we think about most of the time. So don’t be surprised if what you are thinking creates outcomes, creates results you do not want.
The only reason why people go to a coach or to a seminar or workshop is that they want different, better results in their lives. But the results we have are created by us – whether they are desired or undesired.
So think positive, empowering thoughts and take forward looking actions – always towards what you want, never towards what bothers you.
Everyone has at least One but many (if not most) never go for their dream. They are not really committed to achieving their dream and have given up.
Some will start on the path to achieving their dream, but get discouraged by the lack of support from their friends, family, teammates, colleagues etc. because they tell them, their dream is crazy, impossible to reach, or just not for them. Consequently they abandon their dreams and settle for mediocrity
Others actually begin the journey only to have distractions get in their way…. and they too give up.
All these people are willing to settle for “good enough,” however good enough never is. There will always be that nagging doubt in your mind asking you “What if…?” There has to be more to this life than just good enough!
And then there are the dreamers
who are willing to do whatever it takes to achieve their dreams.
Having dreams is important:
- Without them you will not strive to get anywhere!
- They provide you with the passion you need to reach your goals
- They give you hope and direction
- They help you be disciplined
Discipline is important if we want to achieve more in life. Discipline means doing the right things at the right time and for the right reasons. Sounds easy but we all know it isn’t always that easy. What is easy, is to get distracted and lose precious time and focus. That is why we need to be accountable – for our action and our in-actions. One of the most powerful success concepts is the Mastermind Principle which the famous author Napoleon Hill in the all time classic “Think and Grow Rich” dedicated a whole chapter too. For good reason.
Let me just recap the essentials:
The “Master Mind” may be defined as “coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose. No two minds ever come together without, thereby, creating a third, invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind.” – Napoleon Hill
It has been scientifically proven that by joining or creating a Mastermind group you are 8 times more likely to succeed!
8 times more!!!
Why? Because you will be accountable to your mastermind partners and of course, to yourself. By helping and supporting each other, each member achieves more! It’s an amazing concept and proven to work. There are thousands of examples in history and around today’s Top Achievers. Nobody achieves extreme success by her or himself.
Who belongs to your Mastermind group?
Who are you accountable to?
Who supports you?
Join me and other like minded individuals on our journey to truly live our dreams!
Remember what Nike says: “Just do it!” And do it NOW.
Masterminding allows us to lean on each other and live our life with efficiency and clarity of purpose. It provides us with tools for self-discovery, growth and transformation.
The concept of the Mastermind was formally introduced by Napoleon Hill in the early 1900’s through his book “Think and Grow Rich” It is an extremely powerful concept that has been somewhat diluted and misused in business and personal development circles in the last few years. Let me explain what a real Mastermind group is and how it works.
In a true Mastermind group you will find synergy, commitment, and support. The beauty of Masterminds is that participants raise the bar by challenging each other to create and implement goals, to brainstorm ideas, and to support each other with integrity, respect and compassion. Members of our Mastermind groups hold each other accountable and act as catalysts for growth, devil’s advocates and supportive colleagues!
In his timeless classic, “Think And Grow Rich” Napoleon Hill wrote about the Mastermind principle as:
“The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony.”
He continues …
“No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind.”
In a Mastermind Group, the agenda belongs to the group, and each person’s participation is key to it’s success. Your peers give you feedback, help you brainstorm new possibilities, and set up accountability structures that keep you focused and on track. You create a community of supportive colleagues who brainstorm together to move the group and each of its participants to new heights.
You’ll gain tremendous insights, which can improve your business and your personal life. Your MasterMind Group is like having a objective board of directors (something you will not find too often in business 🙂
What will you gain from being part of a true Mastermind group?
- Experience, skills and confidence
- Real progress in your business and personal life
- An instant and invaluable support network
- A sense of shared endeavor – there are others out there!
- Design things to be the way you want them to be, not as people say they “should” be
- accountability and a stronger commitment to the outcome you desire
Who should participate?
- still have dreams and goals they want to achieve
- have the desire to make this year extraordinary
- want a supportive team of Mastermind partners
- who are willing to work with others
- want to reach or exceed their goals
- are ready to overcome their fears and doubts
- want to move our of their comfort zone and into an empowered life
