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.
