Think & Grow Rich: Desire

Desire is the starting point of all achievement.  I believe that the best ever written was Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.  There is a method from that book that I have always believed in and if you follow, you will be successful.

Six ways to turn desires to riches:

Step 1:  Fix in your mind   the EXACT amount of money you desire.  It is not sufficient merely to say “I want plenty of money”.  Be definite as to the amount.  I.E.  “I want one hundred thousand dollars.”

Step 2:  Determine exactly what you intend to give in return  for the money you desire.  ( There is no such thing as something for nothing.). I.E.  “I will speak at 100 self help seminars, earning $1000 for each seminar.” 

Step 3:  Establish a definite date when you intend to possess the money you desire.  I.E. “My deadline for obtain this money is September 17th, 2014 by 11:59 PM CST.”

Step 4:  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.  I.E.  “Starting on August 17th, 2013 at 7AM CST, I will began promoting my first seminar to take place on September 17th, 2013 at place to be announced”. 

Step 5:  Write out a clear, concise statement of the amount of money you intend to acquire, name the time limit for it’s acquisition, state what you intend to give in return for the money, and describe clearly the plan through which you intend to accumulate it.  (See above for examples)

Step 6:  Read your written statement aloud, twice daily, once just before retiring at night, and once after arising in the morning.  As you read-see and feel and believe yourself in possession of the money!! 

It is important that you follow the instructions described in these six steps.  It is also important that you observe, and follow the instructions in Step 6.  The objective is to want the money,.and to become so determined to have it that you convince YOURSELF you will have it! 

Now, get up, get out and get something!
