Wednesday, you look so pretty today! It’s about to get real! I am going off the cuff again today. Haha. More and more, my mind is filled with things that I can not pass up sharing. I started reading Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich” again. Which, to me, is the greatest personal development book this world has ever seen. As I said before, if you type into YouTube, “Think and grow rich-secret episodes 1937”, you will see a link where Napoleon is sitting at his desk. In this setting, it is as if he is conducting a personal interview with you. And to say the least, he crushes it!
In one of his first episodes, he asks you to grab a piece of paper and a pen. I am going to do the same thing with you. Humor me for a second and grab one of each. On your piece of paper, write what your idea of success is. It can be as long or as short as you want. Mine was 6 points long, and at least one of the 6 points had to do with the 5 major categories that I have talked about many times before that create balance in life (Financial, educational, physical, emotional, spiritual). After you have written down your definition of success, write down what you intend to give in the process of obtaining it. Money, time, resources, etc.
Napoleon says that once you do that, to look at the sheet of paper at least 12 times a day and repeat it. “The only limitation is the one that you accept and set up in your own mind.” By looking at the paper and reciting what you have written on that paper, you began to train your mind on exactly what is going to happen. I have started to implement this in my life. I still write down, recite in the mirror, and visualize my affirmations every day. But then, I pull out this sheet of paper as many times as possible throughout the day and recite my desires. I know you are probably so tired of hearing me preach these principles, but here are the facts: if you practice this, you will be more successful! I couldn’t put it any simpler. If you want to be great, think great!
Remember that whether you are motivated and dedicated, or mediocre and average, it still takes 24 hours a day. Be great today!
Trying hard to be great, Cram
