The Lords Of Self-Discipline

The truly great human beings that we all admire in the arts, sports, entertainment, and other fields, all have one thing in common to their success.

We’ve all had brilliant ideas, moments of inspiration, and inventions flash into our mind. We’ve all had dreams of how we would love our life to be.

Action Completes The Miracle Process

Action is what makes the difference between the greats and the average or mediocre. Action is what separates the top 5% from the masses who live lives of quiet desperation. And taking action is nothing more than self-discipline.

The best thing about becoming successful is not the money, but rather the type of person that you become along the way. When you welcome the disciplines that are at the root of all success, it’s like watering and nurturing the seed of your ideas and dreams. Otherwise they just wither away and die.

When you set a big goal for your life, you need to take consistent action towards it even if the completion of the goal may be far off in the distance.

Chip away at the stone, and day by day you’ll strengthen your faith, character, and you’ll keep your dream alive. And one day the masterpiece that you envisioned in your minds eye will be a reality.

Thinking about the long term consequences of your daily actions helps you to stay determined and gives you An Iron Will  {<Free Copy} by Orison Swett Marden.

Make Action A Habit

I know that it’s safer and easier to lie on the couch watching TV, but it’s also a waste of potential, knowledge, and life. And nothing great has ever been accomplished by being a couch potato.

Every act of self-discipline affects your consciousness, confidence, and increases the pleasure that you get from taking action. Plus, have you ever noticed that when you put things off, you get that nagging, lousy feeling?

When you move closer toward your goals, you feel happy and inspired, which releases endorphins. Focus on the rush of accomplishment that you get, and the nagging pain you’ll feel by being a slacker.

The Law Of Concentration

What you dwell upon grows due to the law of attraction. Accept responsibility for the circumstances in your life, and you’ll be able to change them, or how you feel about them.

Study the steps to change and improvement by reading and listening to self-help books & audios.

Lack of self-discipline created your bad habits, and it’s with self-discipline that you can break them. Nothing slows down your progress, and kills your dreams faster than a bad habit.

I used The Dickens Pattern {<Free Audio}, and Awaken The Giant Within {<Free Copy} by Tony Robbins to quit my bad habits and placebo them with new habits – like reading self-help books.

Continuous learning attracts, then opens up doors of opportunity. Then because you’re ready, you’re able to seize hold of opportunities before they slip away.

Join The 3%

Only 3% of the population ever put their goals in writing. And this same 3% have more wealth than all of the other 97% put together. Need I say more? Then listen to Walk Away From The 97% by Jim Rohn.

Study your craft. But what really separates the greats from the average is practice, practice, practice…then more practice. And while you practice use the laws of visualization and assumption to see and feel as though you were already living your dreams.

“Fear Is The Mind Killer”*

By disciplining yourself to take action despite your fears, you’ll break on through to the other side of fear where success waits.

You only have one life here on earth, so do your best to make what you will of it. “Don’t wish that things were easier, wish that you were better.”*

How To Get Motivated

“Don’t Find Fault, Find A Remedy; Anybody Can Complain”*

If it wasn’t for Henry Ford, life as we know it might not exist today. Ford changed the face of the world by inventing then mass-producing the automobile.

Without his “horseless buggy” as it was initially called, there would have been no need for so many roads, highways, gas stations, fast-food franchises, and motels.

It’s hard to believe that at first Ford was actually laughed at, and considered by many to be a crazy inventor. But, crazy or not Ford was a high achiever who knew how to get and stay motivated.

Lacking formal education and any training as a mechanic, Ford educated himself. He was the ultimate expression of determination because he refused to accept any limitations.

“Anything Worth Having, Is Worth Working For”*

In NLP: The New Technology Of Achievement {<Free Audiobook} by NLP Comprehensive, they show how to model successful people. When you find out what steps they’ve taken, and how they think, then you can do and think the same way, and get the same results.

That always made sense to me, so in order to become a high achiever myself, I studied success and came up with a formula to get myself motivated. Here’s what I deduced.

In analyzing and interviewing over 500 of the richest and most successful people of his era, Napoleon Hill wrote his Keys To Success: The 17 Principles Of Personal Achievement {<Free Copy}.

And just like NLP teaches, Hill also concluded that if you want success, then study successful people and do and think as they do.

A few of the many people that Hill interviewed were Henry Ford, Andrew Carnegie, and Thomas Edison. These great men were all powerhouse achievers.

I’ve found that 2 of Hill’s 17 principles are at the core of motivation: a definite major purpose and a burning desire to achieve it.

For example, Ford, Edison, and Carnegie all had a definite major purpose – they knew exactly what it was that they wanted. And they had the desire to achieve it – they stoked the fire of they desire in their mind’s eye through visualization, which cultivated their unstoppable determination.

Most people struggle through life, but quite honestly, the 10 steps to a happy and successful life have already been built for all those who dare to climb them:

  1. Decide exactly what it is that you want out of life.
  2. Put it in writing & read it regualrly.
  3. Come up with a plans for achieving it.
  4. Study up on it.
  5. Find somebody who’s done it already & model them.
  6. Think about it & visualize it often.
  7.  Pray to God and/or your subconscious mind for help and guidance.
  8. Be grateful for it as though it was a present fact.
  9. Link pain to not working on it, and pleasure to taking massive action.
  10. Chip away at the stone, day after day.

“Opportunity Is Missed By Most People Because It Is Dressed In Overalls And Looks Like Work”*

Experience has taught me that it’s actually harder work to go through life putting most things off than to actually do them.

When you put things off, you still expend a lot of time and energy thinking about whatever it is that you want to and know you should be doing. Plus, you also end up feeling lousy about yourself because you’re a slacker.

Conversely, when you work on your goals it releases an endorphin rush that can become addictive. And it raises your levels of self-esteem, confidence, and happiness. Which then gets you even more motivated.

Since you’re going to live out your life one way or the other, why not spend it working on your goals. Because only then can you make all your dreams come true, and leave your mark upon the world.

All the best, – Herb.

10 Steps To Riches

Wherever you are in your life, you may become rich by determining that it will be so. Develop a burning intense desire and stoke the fire in your mind. The odds are against you winning big in the lottery, so you better come up with a long term plan.

Yes, it would be outstanding to win the lottery, but most people squander that in a few years anyways because they don’t have an abundance mindset, so…

1. Develop A Money Consciousness

This is the first step to wealth because it helps attract wealth. You’ve got to focus your mind on the abundant supply of the universe, never focus on lack or poverty. Think, act, and feel wealthy by using the law of assumption. And read  Secrets Of The Millionaire Mind {<Free Copy} by T.Harv Eker.

2. Study Wealth

Success leaves clues, so”If you want to be wealthy, study wealth.”* There are many excellent self-help books that go into the attitudes of mind and proven methods that are necessary to achieve lasting riches:

3. Save At Least 10% Of Your Earnings

This discipline helps your mind to respect and appreciate the value of money. And the more you save and accumulate, the wealthier you’ll feel. And the wealthier you feel, the more wealth you’ll attract due to the law of attraction.

4.”A Penny Saved Is A Penny Earned”

What I mean specifically is to do more things by yourself, for yourself. For instance, I’ve developed lots of skills. I work on my own cars, my own house, and as you can probably tell – my own website. Not only do I save money, but I feel great about it. And as Brian Tracy says, “Everything is learnable.”

5. Invest What You Save

Never take a loss. If your investment goes down for a while like most do because everything is cyclical, do not sell. Invest in a stock index fund by yourself & sit tight. No mutual funds because there are many hidden costs, and most fund managers lose their clients money, and get paid by commission per transaction. Don’t try to become a trader because it is a full time specialty that very few can master, and …

6. Think Long Term

  • Buy a stock index fund when the market corrects, or better yet crashes, which it always does every 3 to 10 years because of cycles. Then hold long term. Invest what you can keep in and roll it over in compound interest until you retire. Get at least 10 % percent in physical gold and silver and a home safe. In both cases don’t check the markets for months at a time because the Fed and the big banks manipulate and suppress them, but cycles eventually win out. Read:
  • The Intelligent Investor {<Free Copy} by Benjamin Graham, or better yet
  • Unshakable {<Free Audiobook/podcast} by Tony Robbins and Peter Mallouk.

7. Study Cycles

Due diligence will tell you what’s going on – the global economy is one giant bubble of derivatives. Just look beyond the mainstream media which is in the elites’ and the bankers’ pockets.

8. Study Your Craft

Wherever you are in life, whatever you’re doing for a living – read, learn, and improve at it. And master whatever you’re passionate about. But don’t go into debt by going back to school. A study of most wealthy entrepreneurs will show you that most of them were self-educated. School is really just books, so turn your car into a university on wheels. Remember, “Formal education can make you a living, self-education can make you a fortune.”

9.Tithe

It’s suggested to give away ten percent of your earnings, but I believe that it depends upon you. Give away what is in your heart to give. It may be time, effort, skill, or money. You can help an older person with home repairs, or even take them to a movie. Maybe, start feeding the homeless cats in your area. Whatever makes you feel good. It causes your subconscious to feel abundance which will attract more of the same. Let abundance flow through you instead of hording it.

10. Be Grateful For All That You Do Have

Then the law of gratitude will send you even more to be grateful for. Also start dressing and grooming yourself better. Clean up your car and home. And take 10% of your earnings, and spend it on you because you deserve it – then be really grateful for it.

Then after you’ve done those 10 steps you should be ready for #11 – Buy Real Estate after you study it & do due diligence…I digress.

All the best, – Herb.
