Seventh Secret – Take Action
You must take action on your dream or your goal or it will eventually die off. Taking action now and being decisive, is a habit that can be learned. You have to set priorities and act on them like your life depended on them.
Someone once said that “The masses make decisions slowly and change them quickly. While the super successful make decisions quickly and change them slowly, if they change them at all.”
Don’t wait until you have ALL the information before you decide to do something. It’s only important to have ENOUGH information to make a decision. Then take action on that decision. Taking action on a big decision causes great things to start to happen. So just get started!
Eight Secret – Do What You Fear
Do you know that we’re born with only a few fears. The fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. All the other fears are learned along our way in life. Like the fear of failure or the fear of rejection and even the fear of success.
Our greatest enemy in life is fear. Fear keeps us from doing what we would like to do or that would make our life more complete and more enjoyable.
In the Bible in the book of James it says “a doubtful mind will be as unsettled as the wave of the sea that is tossed and driven by the wind; and every decision you then make will be uncertain, as you turn first this way, and then that.”
Mark Twain once said, “True courage is not the absence of fear, it’s the mastery of fear.”
Norman Vincent Peale said “Hold that thought of faith’s greater power until you believe it, for it can be the difference between success and failure.”
Understand that fear is nothing more than your perception of a future occurrence. The acronym for F.E.A.R is “false evidence appearing real.”
Another old saying is ““do the thing you fear and fear will disappear”.
Ninth Secret – Persistence
Is there one personality or character trait that I believe stands out from the rest? Yes, I believe persistence can make any ordinary person become extraordinary.
Napoleon Hill devoted an entire chapter in Think and Grow Rich to Persistence, that is how important he thought it was.
When life pounds you into the ground and just eats you up. You have to get your footing, dust yourself off and stand up, then continue on with your life. There is an old acronym I have heard the Marines use called F.I.D.O. it stands for “Forget it – Drive On!”
If you have a desire for something and it is consuming, obsessive, pulsating and burning, then a person will continue with persistence to do whatever it takes to satisfy their desire for whatever they are after.
Tenth Secret – Do Today What Others Will Not Do
“I will do today what others will not do, so I can do tomorrow what others cannot do”. This saying must become your motto.
In the classic book The Common Denominator of Success, by Albert Gray says “The common denominator of success—the secret of success of every person who has ever been successful— lies in the fact that “THEY FORMED THE HABIT OF DOING THINGS THAT FAILURES DON’T LIKE TO DO.”
Robert Collier, author of the classic The Secret of the Ages, said that “Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out.” Every day you are either closer to your goals or further away from them.
Eleventh Secret – Masterminding
Napoleon Hill, who introduced millions to the idea of the Master Mind, wrote that, “No two minds ever come together without, thereby, creating a third, invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind.”
Minds can come together in many ways today (with today’s technology it need not be in person). Master Mind groups may be established for a specific purpose, like a group focused on Masterminding marketing ideas. These groups can be on Facebook or Google Hangouts. These groups can meet in person or via Skype.
In Master Mind groups you can discuss ideas, you can motivate each other, you can be a devils advocate on something so all the obstacles that have to be overcome are brought to the surface for all to see.
Twelfth Secret – Laws
Our Universe and everything in it is governed by a set of laws called principles. If your life is in harmony with those principles then, by design, you are open for all of the abundance the Universe can give you.
Principles like the law of cause and effect, the law of attraction, the law of reciprocity, the law of compensation, the law of correspondence, the law of concentration and on and on.
If you live by the laws of the universe and apply them to your daily life you will see your goals accomplished right before your eyes. But remember as with anything worthwhile in life you must be patient and give the laws time to make your dreams come true. So have FAITH, TAKE ACTION and most of all BELIEVE!
Thirteenth Secret – Mentor
I feel this is the most important SECRET of all. That is why I have saved it till last. Find a Mentor or a Coach who has achieved what you want to achieve. Then do everything that person tells you to do and you will reach the same level of success that hey have achieved.
If you want to achieve even more, then you must find a different Mentor who has accomplished what you seek. This Mentor can take you to the higher levels you want to achieve.
A Mentor will provide you with better focus and a solid foundation for succeeding as you move forward.
Technology today makes it possible to have person to person mentoring relationships with anyone from anywhere in the world. Whether by Skype, email, instant messaging and/or by webinars. There is absolutely no excuse not to have a coach or mentor pushing you toward your dreams and goals.
