A Recipe For Success

Can You See The Light?

Like wealth, success is a relative term. It all depends on what it means to you. For the context that I’m using it here I’ll quote Earl Nightingale -“Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal. If a person is working towards a goal, that person is a success.”

Only 3% of the population puts their goals in writing. And those same 3% own more wealth than the other 97% combined. Need I say more?

Taking Action Creates Miracles

Success often depends on the amount and the quality of action that you take. By learning how to use the universal laws of mind properly, you will attract wealth and opportunities, but you also need to have the channels open for things to flow to you. And by taking action on a goal, you move towards it while it moves towards you.

For example, the job offer of a lifetime may come your way, but what good is it if you haven’t prepared yourself by reading the right books?

Once you learn about them, you can consciously develop and strengthen the qualities of mind that lead to success. You can welcome the disciplines and in so doing become one of the lords of self-discipline whom we all admire.

The Dynamic Duo Of Determination & Perseverance

All great accomplishments of the human race were wrought with incredible hardships and setbacks that would derail most people on the track to success. Stay determined and your resolve to persevere will overcome all the obstacles that stand between you and your goal.

Stoke The Fire Of Desire

At the core of determination seems to be a burning intense desire to achieve. When you have the vision of your goal clearly fixed in your mind’s eye, and you want it so bad that your heart aches for its obtainment, then you become unstoppable.

At the core of desire you will find three key ingredients: clarity, imagination, and belief. In order to get your desire burning white hot with intensity that instills the determination to persevere within you, you must know exactly what you want, see it in your imagination, and you must believe that you can obtain it.

When you believe in yourself and your goal enough, you will take action. You should listen to The Magic Of Believing {<Free Audiobook} by Claude Bristol.

“Fear Is The Mind-Killer”*

Most goals that are abandoned along the road to success are due to failure to take action. Most people are so afraid of failure that they’re afraid to even try.

But, if you want a thing bad enough, you’ll break on through to the other side of fear where success has been waiting all along.

I understand how life can be. I got to the point where I couldn’t take it anymore. It was literally do or die, and I chose to live on.

But I was determined to make a change. I sought out all the right self-help books and I read them voraciously. Something inside of me had changed, and I developed the habit of reading self-help books because my tormented soul ached to improve.

Along the way I learned to write down my goals, and I found some purpose to my life. Now, I’m happier, healthier, wealthier, and wiser.

That’s why I love to share what I’ve learned in my own unique way. If I can help one lost soul to find their way then that is truly priceless. So here’s …

The Recipe For Success:

Mix 1 part imagination with 1 part clarity & you’ll get 1 worthy goal,

Mix 1 determined soul & 1 part perseverance & you’ll get 1 human being in action,

Mix 1 part desire {white hot} & 1 part belief & you’ll get 1 courageous spirit,

Mix it all together, sprinkle with gratitude and faith & you’ll get  1 dream come true.

Regards, – Herb.

How To Create Miracles

We all have a purpose for being here, and we all have something great that we’d love to achieve. Sadly, most people die with their music still in them, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

“Searching And Learning Is Where The Miracle Process All Begins”*

By listening to the longings that call to us from within, we get an indication of what are purpose is. Then by making it our definite major purpose, we can focus our thoughts and energies on making it a reality.

Although many people know what their innate talents are, and what they would love to do, they still lack the skills to pursue their dreams.

Yes, it takes courage to overcome our fears. As well as belief in oneself, determination, perseverance, and self-discipline.

But, I’ve come to realize that the power of all those qualities of mind, and many more, can be harnessed by learning the skills that self-help books and audios offer.

“Fear Is The Mind-Killer”*

For example, the best way to overcome your fear is to take action despite your fear. Then your fear is weakened, and your courage is strengthened. Then you break on through to the other side of fear where success has been waiting all along.

The way to get stuck in a life of mediocrity is to be paralyzed by your fears because fear breeds inaction, and inaction is the weakest link that stands between you and your dreams.

By fighting to fulfill the ambitions that call to the highest that is within you, you grow stronger with every beat of your heart’s desire.

Yet, when you give into fear and doubt, you end up not even trying to pursue your supreme purpose, and so you automatically lose by default. Then your life is a failure.

“No Guts, No Glory”*

The leap between setting a goal – defining your purpose, and making it a reality is as simple as taking action. Action creates miracles.

Successful people define their major purpose, create a plan to achieve it, then they move step-by-step towards it. And that is what truly separates the great from the mediocre.

Mediocre people live their lives vicariously through others, by watching their favorite actors and sports heroes on TV. And nothing great has ever been achieved by being a couch potato.

3-2-1-Blast Off!

Successful people launch. We’ve all had an idea for a business, book, or invention flash through our minds, but most people give into fear, or wait until everything’s perfect before they launch. But, nothing’s ever perfect.

There are no guarantees in life, but by taking action, you feel great about yourself. Plus, you get feedback from your efforts, so you can learn and improve. Then you can adjust your next actions accordingly.

It took Edison and his team ten thousand tries before they finally found the filament that made the light bulb work properly. Imagine if he just gave up after a few hundred or even a few thousand attempts? We might all still be sitting around the fire bored to tears.

By taking action you open up the doors of opportunity, and put the odds of success in your favor. The more things you try, the more likely you are to find the one thing that will make a difference.

“Action Is The Foundational Key To All Success”*

The future belongs to action oriented risk takers because a body in motion tends to stay in motion, and there’s true power in not stopping and starting again.

However, a body remains at rest unless it is acted upon by an outside force, or in this case – the internal forces of desire and motivation.

Don’t let the size of your goal overwhelm you by breaking it down into steps. Then climb those steps one at a time to the peak of success.

You can read an Iron Will {<Free Copy} by Orison Swett Marden for a quick blast of inspiration. And for self-help in finding your life’s purpose you can listen to NLP: The New Technology Of Achievement {<Free Audiobook}

“When The Night Is Darkest, The Stars Come Out”

On the road to success there will always be roadblocks, but when you keep on keeping on, you become as unstoppable as a freight train.

There’s a price to pay for all success because lasting, true success isn’t free. But because of the type of person that you become along the way, it’s well worth the price. That’s how it works.

There’s also a price to pay for failure. Failure leaves you unhappy, miserable, and always wondering what could have been. Don’t let your final words be… “I shoulda, I coulda…”

“Deliberation Is The Work Of Many Men. Action, Of One Alone”*

How To Change The World

One of the best ways to achieve success for yourself is by helping others to succeed. Because everyone who ever reached the peak of success didn’t get to the top alone.

They had lots of help along the way. And when someone lends us a hand, the law of fair play requires that we reciprocate by helping others.

The Law Of Sowing And Reaping

Your efforts to help someone else less fortunate will not only help them, but will give you something that is priceless to your own heart and soul.

One of the richest paradoxes that you could ever experience is to be able to think of someone, and know that you helped them, because in so doing, you enriched your own life beyond measure.

“I’d Love To Change The World”*

When you take a look at all those people around the world who have been evicted from their homes by mother nature, you’ll also see many strangers trying to help them.

I’m not blind to the terrorists who mow down innocent strangers in the streets, or blow up young kids at a concert. But, those fanatics are not the majority.

I’m also extremely grateful for the blessings of being able to live in Canada. And I can only begin to imagine all the hardships that millions of people around the world must face everyday just to survive.

When we choose to give of ourselves, of our time and energy, to the benefit of others, we change the world one helping hand at a time.

“Do Not Conform To This World, But Be Ye Transformed By The Renewing Of Your Mind”**

Just think how the world would be transformed if we all took the time to help someone else through life. In some way, each of us in turn, would then receive help when we needed it. And there will come a time when we all need help.

Personally, I’ve found that the first step to helping others is by helping myself to improve through self-help books. Because when I get better, I’m better able to help others.

I know that my little blog here won’t change the world, but one day someone that I may never meet or ever even know about, may read something that I wrote that will help them. Then they might share it with another, and so on down the line.

Essentially, doing your best to help others sets in motion a chain reaction that vibrates around the world because when we give each other a hand – we all join hands.

Since I know that there’s a Higher Power to the universe that we are all a part of, I also know that we can always find a way to help others, and in so doing the world will become a better place – one helping hand at a time.

P.S. If you like this post, then please lend me a hand trying to change the world by sharing it. And if you want to become part of the change that you’d like to see in the world then please read The Secret Of The Ages {<Free Copy} by Robert Collier.

Since we may never meet for me to lend you a helping hand, here’s an electric hug.

Vaya con dios, – The Unknown Musician.
