Let me be perfectly clear; I believe that when the mind determines exactly specifically what you want to accomplish that you do attract the people, situations, and opportunities to help that vision become a reality.

I believe in the wisdom of the ages.

“What the Mind can Conceive and Believe it Can Achieve”
-Napoleon Hill

The key phrase is BELIEVE.

The secret is Believe, as the Bible says all things are possible to him that believeth.

We are not talking about day dreaming, wishing, or hoping for; we are talking about believing. If daydreaming was all that was required to manifest reality in your life, the vast majority of people would be lottery winners!

If you really did become what you think about, most teenage boys would transform themselves into teenage girls.

Belief always leads to ACTION! Daydreaming, wishing, and hoping leads to self delusion. I am sick and tired of people being deceived, intentionally or otherwise, by self proclaimed self help gurus that are doing nothing more than telling people what they WANT TO HEAR!

If you are not living the kind of life you want then look in the mirror, which is where the problem is. We are all the some total of the decisions we have made in our life, right, wrong, good, bad.

In my travels I have the opportunity to speak at various marketing seminars. I can always tell when one of the attendees has taken “The SECRET” pill. They have visions of grandeur which is seldom followed by action. I always ask them how long ago they watched the video. Nine times out of ten it is within the last ninety days, and I know that within a few months they will convince themselves that all this visualization stuff is a load of bull.

Again, true belief leads to action! If you are not taking action towards your vision you are only fooling yourself. I can not tell you how many times over the years people have approached me to tell me everything they are going to accomplish only to never be heard from again.

I just wish that people could understand that happiness has no relationship to material wealth. Some of the happiest people I have ever met have spent their life paycheck to paycheck building someone else’s dream. Some of the most obnoxious, self absorbed people I have met were also the wealthiest. If material wealth was the answer then financially free people would never commit suicide.

The value of our life is in direct proportion to the relationships we develop and the amount of our potential we tap. “Hell starts when the person we are, meets the person we could have become”

No, I don’t believe that money is the root of all evil, but I do believe that THE LOVE of Money is. When it is all said and done our incomes are in direct proportion to the value we provide to the market place that we serve. “He who wishes to be great, let him be the servant of many”

I am sharing from experience. I have achieved more financially in my life than any of my high school classmates could have ever expected. 16,000 square foot home on 100 acres, Mercedes limo with driver, private airplane, weeks in Hawaii, and on and on.

As I heard someone say one time, money does not solve all our problems but it gives us the opportunity to work the rest of them out in style. Being financially free means we have options that most people don’t.

I personally think it is a sin to be broke. I think we all have a perfect plan for our life and it is our job to find that plan and diligently work towards what we were meant to be. Life is God’s gift to us, what we do with it, is our gift to God.

I am not trying to come across as a know it all, I am just asking you to use some common sense. The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary. You can accomplish anything in life that you decide and truly believe you can, but not by sitting back on your couch watching TV and daydreaming during the commercials!

Granted the reason most people don’t accomplish more is because they settle for mediocrity and never really identify specifically what they want to accomplish or find a financial vehicle to help their dream become a reality.

I want to leave you with one final bit of advice. Whatever your occupation or business, look at the people above you, do they have what you want? If they don’t do something else, if they do then model their systems, don’t try to reinvent the wheel! Create a vision, take the daily steps necessary to create belief in that vision and go for it... TAKE ACTION!
