The Power Of Concentration

Habits Of Excellence

Human excellence can be learned. So study the high achievers that you emulate because anything that anyone else can do, you can also learn how to do at least equally as well.

Successful people all have several habits in common. One of which is the habit of concentrating on one thing at a time. Whereas your average person spreads their time and energy over many tasks. Many of which are low priority tasks, while the ones that will make their dreams come true never get completed.

“We Become What We Think About”*

In The Strangest Secret {<Free Audiobook} Earl Nightingale talks about one of the most important mental and spiritual laws of mind ever discovered, which is whatever we think about most of the time, we become.

Since thoughts are things, your outer world is a reflection of your inner world. Your thoughts can make you happy or sad, confident and determined, and rich or poor because whatever you focus on, you just get more of.

This is why I’ve often quoted Jim Rohn who said, “if you want to be wealthy, study wealth.” When you study wealth, you focus on it, and you develop a money consciousness which is the first step to riches.

Money Is Freedom

The best self-help book that I know of to help you achieve a money consciousness is Secrets Of The Millionaire Mind {<Free Copy} by T. Harv Eker.

I talk a lot about getting rich because when you are poor and in debt, you are miserable. And when you are financially independent, you are free to enjoy life, develop your talents, and pursue your life’s purpose. It is not about the money or status, it’s about being happy.

The Power Of Imagination

Your thoughts trigger images, pictures, and visions, and the resulting emotions that go with them. These visions and feelings then trigger attitudes and actions. And your actions then determine what happens to you.

When you think about success and happiness, you feel empowered to happily get to work on your goals. And you also perform better at whatever you do.

Attitudes And Emotions

Whether you have a positive or negative mental attitude is often based on past experiences about how you think things are supposed to be.

When you use the law of assumption, you act your way into feeling in a manner that is consistent with how you really want to be. In other words, by acting as if you were already happy, confident, and successful, you soon begin to feel that way on the inside. Then you start to take the corresponding actions.

Questions Are The Answer

The law of belief states that whatever you believe, with conviction, becomes your reality. Human beings always act in a manner that is consistent with their most intensely held beliefs. And all of your beliefs were learned.

Your beliefs determine your reality. You don’t believe what you see, but rather you see what you believe. Therefore, you can question and change your self-limiting believes into empowering ones.

You would be wise to watch The Secrets Of Belief {<Free Video} with Ernest Holmes.

You Are A Magnet

Through the powers of the law of attraction, you always attract into your life the people, ideas, opportunities, and circumstances that are in harmony with your dominant thoughts.

When you think positive, happy, and successful thoughts, you create a force field charged full of electromagnetism around you that attracts unto you the very things that you are thinking about.

Choose Your Thoughts

Truly successful people think better thoughts than the average person.They plant better seeds of thought in the fertile soil of their minds, and so they reap a greater harvest. This is the law of cause and effect.

They concentrate on doing one thing at a time until they have mastered it, or until it is completed. These are the lords of self-discipline whom we all admire so much.

They put everything behind a single objective. Then they keep that train of thought on track until they reach their destination. After that, they set new goals for themselves.

In The Magic Of Believing {<Free Audiobook}, Claude Bristol states that, “thought is the original source of all wealth, all success, all material gain, all great discoveries and inventions, and of all achievement.”

What about you? Do you know exactly what it is that you want from life? Do you have a plan for getting it? If not, then set that goal with the determination to back it up.

“Put all your eggs in one basket. Then stand by to see that no one kicks the basket over.”**

Remember that your only limitations are those that are in your own mind. Concentrate on becoming all that you were meant to be, and you’ll be unstoppable.

Quotes: *Earl Nightingale, ** Andrew Carnegie










The Power Of Imagination

“May The Force Be With You”*

At your command is a creative force of nature that can summon into motion the law of attraction. and other  laws of mind.

Virtually everything that you envision in your mind’s eye can be made manifest on the tangible plane of existence by developing your imagination and harnessing the laws of visualization.

Two Forms Of Imagination

Synthetic imagination consists of a combination of ideas, concepts, plans, and known facts that are arranged in a new way.

And creative imagination works through a sixth sense and is the medium by which new facts, ideas, and inspiration are born.

My favorite self-help book to help develop these faculties of mind is Creative Mind And Success {<Free Audiobook} by Ernest Holmes.

Let There Be Light

“To Invent You Need A Good Imagination And A Pile Of Junk”**

Thomas Edison invented the electric lamp by using synthetic imagination. For a long time, it was well known that light was produced by applying electricity to a wire, but nobody had yet figured out how to keep the metal wire from burning out quickly.

Then Edison came along and placed a wire in a bottle, pumped out all the air, and thus the incandescent bulb was born.

Sitting For Ideas

Dr. Elmer R. Gates was a great example of creative imagination. By developing his sixth sense to a high degree, Gates had more patents to his credit than Edison.

By meditating in a soundproof room and turning off the lights, Gates concentrated on solutions that had previously eluded many other inventors.

Your Sixth Sense

Your five physical senses keep you grounded in the physical world, but your sixth sense – your subconscious – gives you contact with the invisible forces of the universe. Thus making available knowledge that you could not otherwise obtain.

This sixth sense of creative vision, just like the other five senses, becomes stronger through regular systematic use.

Most truly successful people all have a system for conditioning their minds, even though many of them don’t even realize that they are doing it.

How About You?

Are you making all of your dreams come true? An extremely effective method for developing your sixth sense is to write out a clear, concise description of the problem you want to solve or of the goal that you wish to obtain.

Then throughout the day pray to your God, and to your subconscious mind which is in tune with the Infinite Intelligence of the universe.

The prayer must be rooted in faith so definite and strong that you already see yourself in possession of your objective. This is transcending the time-space continuum through the law of assumption.

Keep On Keeping On

If the results don’t come immediately, keep on trying. And always express gratitude as if you had already attained your objective, even if is not yet in your physical possession.

Believe that you will succeed, and you will win the success that you desire. Just as surely as the sun will rise on the morrow. Because after all, it is law.

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.
