Sincerity Of Purpose

See Your Target

In order to achieve success, you must first establish your definite major purpose. And your odds of making that dream come true will be in proportion to your sincerity in providing others with a better product or service.

Sincerity of purpose pays off in self-respect. And when you conduct your life with integrity, and stay congruent with your greater purpose, you tap into the depths of your mind that will help guide you to wealth, fame, and true success.

When Abraham Lincoln was told that his enemies were saying horrible things about him behind his back, he said, “I don’t care what they say, so long as they’re not telling the truth.” – Indeed Abe.

Sincerity of purpose depends on your motives. Therefore, it’s something that others question before granting you their time, thoughts, or money.

Don’t Expect Something For Nothing

Before starting out on any course of action, ask yourself what your motives are. Of course, you’re right to seek out some personal gain in any worthwhile endeavour, but you must also create value for others.

Sincerity of purpose is one of the hardest things to prove to others, but you must be willing and eager to do so. When you do your best to help others and to make a difference in their lives, you cast a spell that sets in motion many laws of mind, especially the law of cause and effect.

Plant The Seed In Your Mind

A great example is Martha Berry, the founder of a school for poor children whose parents couldn’t afford to pay for their education.

Keeping the school afloat financially was hard in the early days. But fortunately, Martha was able to arrange an appointment with the legendary Henry Ford. Yet unfortunately, Ford refused to give her a donation.

Martha then asked him if he would give her a bushel of peanuts. And Ford, so amused by her request, decided to give her the money for the peanuts.

Martha then helped her students to plant, replant, and sell the peanuts for profit until they had accumulated a considerable amount of money.

Then she went back to Ford and showed him how much she had multiplied his small donation. Impressed, Ford then donated enough tractors and other farm equipment to make her school/farm self-supportive.

And as the years passed by, Ford ended up giving her over one million dollars to help build the beautiful stone buildings that adorned the campus.

A Worthy Pursuit Wins The Day

When asked about it, Ford said, “I couldn’t help being impressed with her sincerity and the marvelous way she applied it on behalf of needy boys and girls.”

Martha’s belief in her purpose was so strong that by her sincerity of purpose she persuaded the reluctant Ford to do what at first he refused to do by showing him that she was on a mission so worthy that she would never succumb to adversity.

In NLP: The New technology Of Achievement {<Free Audiobook}, which is one of my Top 10 Self-Help books, they show you how to discover and remain congruent with your mission in life just like Martha did.

The Tough Get Going

When the going gets tough, and it always does, your sincerity of purpose will help you to ride out the storm. When you know in your heart that you’re providing real value, your purpose will eventually become self-evident to others.

By proving that you have a sincere desire to help people, you can achieve your life’s purpose and all of your personal goals. But more than that, since wealth is a relative thing, you’ll find lasting peace within yourself. And that goes well beyond the monetary because it is truly… priceless.

Top 10 Self-Help Books Of All Time

I’ve read hundreds of self-help books, so it was hard to choose my top 10. But, considering when I read them, how they made me feel, and how much they helped me to improve – here they are. I’ve enclosed links to free copies wherever I could:

#1 – Success Through A Positive Mental Attitude {<Free Audiobook} by Napoleon Hill & W. Clement Stone

Every time I read or listen to this book, I can’t help but feel incredible, unstoppable, and motivated.  In fact, I devised my favorite self-motivator – “Just Do It Now” from this book’s, “Do It Now” and Nike‘s slogan, “Just Do It.” At it’s very core, our lives really are just the result of two attitudes – positive & negative. Let this book show you how to win with PMA.

#2 – The Secret Of The Ages {<Free Copy} by Robert Collier

I first became enlightened to the possibilities of the law of attraction, the universal laws of mind, and a God of some sort by reading this classic book. I can honestly say that it profoundly changed my life forever. If your interested in the esoteric side of life & self-improvement insights that go beyond the norm then check it out.

#3 – Think And Grow Rich {<Free Copy} by Napoleon Hill

I love this classic book not only for its life changing lessons and sheer historical value, but also for the way it came to pass – inspired by Andrew Carnegie, Hill interviewed over 500 of the wealthiest & most successful entrepreneurs of his era in developing his 17 principles of success. Since success always leaves clues, if you want to be successful then read this book.

#4 – The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind {<Free Copy} by Joseph Murphy

To change & improve your life, you must harness the power of your thoughts. And this brilliant book taught me how to do just that. Visualizing exactly what it is that you want in your imagination, and directing your subconscious, which has the same creative powers as Universal Mind, will help make your dreams come true.

#5 – Awaken The Giant Within {<Free Copy} by Tony Robbins

Although Robbins plagiarizes from everyone including stealing the title from Orison Swett Marden, he does at least mix in his own brand of insights. And powerful insights they are. Robbins taught me the clinical & technical side of running my computer like brain & nervous system in order to help change the past and set me on the path of self-improvement.

#6 – The Power Of Awareness {<Free Copy} by Neville Goddard

The self-help book Wishes Fulfilled  by Wayne Dyer first turned me on to the mystic Neville Goddard. Then I bought the CD and a copy of this book. I’ve read & listened to it dozens of times and I always become empowered to act the part of the type of person that I long to be. This is vintage Goddard that inspired me to master the law of assumption.

#7 – How To stop Worrying And Start Living {<Free Audiobook} by Dale Carnegie

Although Carnegie is better known for his classic How To Win Friends & Influence People {<Free Audiobook} which I also love. This book really helped me to relax & stop worrying so much. It also helped put me on the path to finding my purpose in life. However, it’s best lesson may just be that in order to win an argument…don’t argue. Check it out.

#8 – No Excuses: The Power Of Self-Discipline by Brian Tracy

To have a goal, an idea, or a dream, and to never get to work on them is the ultimate waste. To me overcoming procrastination & fear is truly the master key to taking action. And taking action is what really separates the great from the average. My studies into this subject also inspired me to write my post The Lords Of Self-Discipline. Anyways, check it out & “just do it now.”

#9 – Leading An Inspired Life by Jim Rohn

Jim Rohn has had such a great influence on me that not to put him on my list seemed like blasphemy. Although his audio programs & videos are the best I’ve ever found – I also loved this book. It’s the consummate book on how to succeed. If you want change & improvement check it out. And watch this free 6 minute video – The Day That Turns Your Life Around.

#10 – NLP – The New Technology Of Achievement {<Free Audiobook} by The NLP Comprehensive Training Team

This empowering, life altering book will teach you how to harness the power of your computer like mind. who hasn’t heard of NLP? N for Neuro, stands for the nervous system. L for linguistic, stands for language. And P for programming, stands for a system that is installed to produce the results. And by reading this classic, that’s exactly what you’ll get – results. Everything from changing the meaning of bad memories to transcending into the future of your dreams, and all points in between.

How To Be Patient

The Trick To Patience

Everyone nowadays seems to be in a hurry. This age of computers has spoiled us because when we want something, we want it now. But it is through patience that the war is won, the skills are mastered, and the book gets written.

Taking immediate action can be a powerful force indeed, but when you don’t think something through, it often leaves you with regrets, and gives an advantage to those who do their due diligence.

In business, we want the contracts signed, the deals closed, and the work done now. The faster, the better. Yet, like Benjamin Franklin said, “He that can have patience, can have what he will.”

In the investment world, time and time again, the markets have crashed under the weight of the herd mentality. Panicked, the masses sell their stocks at a loss. But those with a long term mentality ride through the storm on the road to wealth.

Patience demands a certain type of courage. Its strength lies in the perseverance that comes with dedication to an ideal or goal.

As Robert Browning put it, “Patience is the courage to change the things you can, the willingness to accept the things you cannot, and the wisdom to know the difference.”

But the trick to patience lies in taking action rather than passively killing time. To truly master patience, you must do something else that’s positive while you wait for time to pass.

In other words, if you’re waiting for a resolution in one area of your life that must take time to unfold, then work on improving another area of your life while you’re waiting.

It’s power is twofold. First of all, you take your mind off of what you’re waiting for to resolve. And second, you improve in other ways instead of just killing time worrying.

Fixate upon some worthy goals. Read some self-help books. Exercise and eat healthy. All of these are worthy of your energy and help you through life as you wait for whatever it is that you’re trying to be patient about.

How To Get Revenge

Ironically, this is also the best way to get vengeance, and deal with ignorant, frustrating people. Sometimes, we can’t just cut people or relatives out of our lives, so we must have faith that their time will come. The law of cause and effect will get them, and until it does, we can rise above them by improving ourselves.

Knowing where you are going in life greatly increases your tolerance level towards the annoying people and setbacks that stand between you and your goals. Just know that you are going to win the war eventually, even though others may win a battle or two along the way.

Remain positive as best you can, and the losers will fall by the way side long before your determination ever does.

Rise Above The Storm

Get in tune with the Infinite Intelligence through The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind*{<Free Copy} and a solution to your problems will just come to you out of the blue, so to speak.

Learn how to pray properly then peace, tranquility, and patience will follow. And time will ease the pain of life as you wait for what took Edison over ten thousand attempts to harness and …the light will come on.
