This piece (a joint collaboration in point form for ease of
reading) is written from the many deep and fascinating discussions Andy
and I have had about our life purposes and what success means to
each of us. Enjoy...
The first step on the stair-case to success is DEFINITENESS OF
PURPOSE. Develop a definite plan for its achievement, a chief
aim in life - a mission. Must be backed by ACTIVE FAITH ("faith
without works is dead"). Doing this produces positive results.
Persistent continuous action towards its attainment.
Think of the person you intend to become and develop a clear
mental picture. Use autosuggestion or repeated affirmations.
Enlist the co-operation of others: Develop a "mastermind
alliance" with people who have a common aim...and with those
whose skills you do not possess.
Recognize the existence of God, Infinite Intelligence, who gives
order to the universe.
DEVELOP A PLEASING PERSONALITY
DEVELOP THE HABIT OF LEARNING FROM DEFEAT: "Every adversity
carries the seed of an equivalent benefit." - Napoleon Hill
Keep the mind open at all times for guidance from within.
Other keys are:
* Creative Vision
* Personal Initiative
* Accurate Thinking
* Self Discipline Your watchword must be PERSISTENCE.
* Concentration of Endeavor
* Enlist the Co-Operation of others - you can't do it alone!
Good health - it's a habit of developing a "health consciousness"
* Budgeting time and money
* Applied wisdom The Golden Rule" applied: "Do unto others, as
you would have them do unto you." this is the basic principle in
ALL religions of the world. Develop the habit of going the extra
mile for others - service.
N.B: Your state of mind is everything, so take possession of your
N.B: Your life journey should be built upon the principles of
truth and justice.
No matter your chosen field of endeavor,
HAPPY TRAVELING down the road to success.

forces of the subconscious."

unleashes the power of the subconscious, to make you a winner." -

"Belief ignites the firepower of the subconscious.
"Belief ignites the rocket propellant of your subconscious mind,
which launches you to success."

into high-octane ethanol."
