The Science Behind Success

“Success Is The Sum Of Small Efforts – Repeated Day In And Day Out”*

My studies into the psychology of success taught me that the attributes of mind that are necessary for all great achievements.

It should be duly noted that by great achievements, I’m including those things that may be great to you personally. For instance, one of my great achievements was changing my bad habits into good habits. The world might not have cared or even noticed, but it changed my world.

Success may mean different things to different people, yet to me the quintessential meaning is making steady progress towards my personal goals.

Have you ever noticed that when you have a goal that you procrastinate on working towards, that you feel lousy about yourself?

You lie on the couch flipping channels, and you tell yourself that it’s okay – you’ll work on that goal tomorrow. Or even worse, you tell yourself – why bother anyways? Who am I trying to kid? I’m not good enough, or it’s just too hard, or it’s for those special people with all the luck.

“The Starting Point Of All Achievement Is Desire”*

Simply put, reaching a goal is like any skill or anything else that you want to learn how to do. There’s so many self-help books out there on virtually every subject, so if you want to be successful then study the science behind success.

That’s right! Science is based upon universal laws that are proven, indisputable facts that work all of the time. For example, just like the law of gravity works everywhere, for everyone, likewise success is also based on universal laws, and you can learn the rules that apply to it, just like two plus two always gets you four.

Because of my analytical, scientific mind, and after applying many of the universal laws that I learned, I’ve seen the results in my own life. I transformed my life by turning the pain of the past around and giving it positive meaning. Thus by changing the meaning of the past, I’ve altered my present and my future.

I’m evolving into what I was meant to be. After searching for my life’s purpose – the calling that beckons from within, I ‘m transcending towards my ultimate destiny, and it towards me. Fate often deals great cards to those who ask for a hand.

“The Key To Success Is Action, And The Essential In Action Is Perseverance”*

Because of the habitual negative thoughts that often haunt me, I learned how to change my beliefs, and how to break up my mental patterns. I have gradually and steadfastly become better than I ever was before. I mean – healthier, happier, richer, and more successful, and I’ve never felt better.

Dare to believe that you can achieve great things, and that you deserve the best that life has to offer. My catch phrase to overcome procrastination is a culmination of, “Do it now” from Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude by Napoleon Hill and W. Clement Stone, and Nike’s slogan “Just do it“. My phrase is “Just do it now”.

I make it a habit to heed it’s call. When my subconscious tells me to just do it now – I take immediate and enthusiastic action – no questions asked.

Studying the science behind success is indeed a noble pursuit because like all universal laws – you always get back what you give.

Perhaps, it can best be summed up by words from people like Emile Coue that I blended into my own habitual affirmations to suit my purpose…I am healthy, wealthy, happy, successful, and I am grateful because every day in every way, I am getting better and better.

Yet still like Jim Rohn said – “Affirmation Without Discipline Is The Beginning Of Delusion”

How To Use The Law Of Visualization

“The World Is But A Canvas To Our Imagination”*

There is a very real universal law of mind that makes the dream of the dreamer come true. This law of visualization calls into being in the outer world that which is made real in the inner world.

At the root of the law of cause and effect, imagination pictures the thing desired, but having vision reaches beyond mere dreaming into the conception of what can be.

There is virtually nothing that you truly desire that cannot be made manifest on the physical plane of reality through the 3 steps to the art of visualization:

  1. See it in your mind’s eye in vivid detail.
  2. Believe in the possibility of its obtainment.
  3. Feel it and be grateful for it as though it was already yours.

This is using the law of assumption, and also how to get what you pray for. The more frequently you do these steps, the quicker your visions will be made tangible.

“Fiction Reveals Truths That Reality Obscures”*

This law brings into being your deepest desires. This is the kind of mental training that gives Olympians the edge over their competitors, and wins them the gold. This is the right use of your mind.

See things as you would have them be instead of as they are. Close your eyes and make mental pictures of exactly what it is that you want. See it, feel it, and live it as you would in reality, and you breath life into it.

It is dreaming, but with a purpose. Write it down in detail because only 3% of the population ever write down their goals, and this same 3% own more wealth than the other 97% combined.

Writing your goals down activates the power of your subconscious mind which is in tune with the Universal Mind. Plus it sets in motion the powerful law of attraction.

What do you want? A new car, a house, a better job – whatever it is – define it as best you can. Then meditate upon it, and visualize it when you wake up, before you go to sleep, and as often as you can throughout the day.

Pray for it to a higher power, and to your subconscious mind with the faith that your wish has been fulfilled. Then prepare to receive it by working towards it as it flows towards you. This is how you complete the miracle process.

Imagine The Possibilities

All that you see around you was once first an image in the field of the imagination. Every invention, novel, movie, song, etc. – it all started as a seed in the mind of its creator. Therefore, you can invent the life that you long for by first creating the vision of it in your mind’s eye.

As Einstein proved energy and matter are interchangeable; thus your imagination emits incredible amounts of mental magnetic energy that attracts unto itself that upon which it dwells – until it is turned into matter.

“When An Oak Is Felled The Whole Forest Echoes With Its Fall, But A Hundred Acorns Are Sown In Silence By An Unnoticed Breeze”*

Just like a great sculpture is given beauty by chipping away at the stone, blow by blow with hammer and chisel. So it is with all great works of art, and of humanity in all its forms.

You are a divine work of art yourself, yet you must use and improve your innate gifts and talents by consciously directing your mind’s eye.

“Imagination Will Often Carry Us To Worlds That Never Were. But Without It We Go Nowhere”*

The only limits to your possibilities are the ones that you place upon yourself. Draw upon the universal abundance of supply at will through the power of controlled imagination.

The possibilities that are available in the Universal Mind are as countless as the stars in the night’s sky, so shoot for the moon because you deserve the best. Happiness, wealth, health, success, all are yours to claim.

Life will give you all that you desire, but you must first pay the price for its obtainment by training your mind. Awaken the sleeping giant within you, and claim your birthright as a truly incredible human being.  Your destiny awaits.

I turned my life completely around, and made many of my dreams come true by using what I learned from hundreds of self-help books. If I did it – you can do it too.

All the best – Herb

Top 10 Goal Setting Tips

“Most People Go To Where The Puck Is, I Go To Where It’s Going To Be”*

Writing your goals down on paper seems like such a simple step, but less than 3% of the population ever bother to do it. Yet those same 3% own more wealth than all of the other 97% combined.

It’s power lies in the fact that before you can achieve anything worthwhile, you must know exactly what it is that you want. After all how can you make your dreams come true if you’re unclear about what they are?

The law of cause and effect states that you always reap what you have sown. In other words, whatever you plant in the fertile soil of your imagination with clarity of vision, then nurture with action, will inevitably reap you a bountiful harvest.

“As You Think, So You Become”*

By putting your goals on paper, you activate The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind {<Free Copy} by Joseph Murphy. Which then sets in motion the law of attraction because whatever you think about the most starts to flow towards you as you move toward it.
