Mental Principle’s of Success
Have you ever wondered what made people great and successful? What goes through the minds of these people? Was it luck? Were they born with a gift? Were these people blessed with such knowledge that only a few know about? Are they even humans? Really! or is it something else at work?
What I have come to understand is that any conscious person that can think and act have these same capabilities as any other. It takes persistence, existence and resistance. Back in 1937 Napoleon Hill published ‘Think and Grow Rich‘. What Hill spoke about was his techniques of developing a mindset of wealth and achieving success beyond your wildest dreams. This book as been out ever since and it is still widely known and people still buy and practice those techniques. Mentored by Andrew Carnegie himself told him that there is a power greater than poverty, greater than the lack of education, greater than all of your fears and superstitions combined, and that is the power to control your mind and direct it to one purpose to that of what you want. One of Hill’s his famous quotes that he says is this, “What ever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.”
These are the steps that he gives if you wish to utilize such power, that is your mind:
- 1. Write down a clear description of what you really want, make sure you create a definitive purpose of why you want that.
- 2. Say it everyday before you go to sleep and when you wake up and work towards that goal and believe in it.
- 3. Give thanks everyday for the wisdom that you have attained.
In 1950′s a motivational speaker Earl Nightingale and author of the ‘ Strangest Secret ‘. He says, “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal, if the person is working towards their goal they are a success.” Nightingale mentions that the problem with people now a days is that people conform. The reason why people conform he mentions is because they believe their lives are shape by circumstance, by things that just happen to them. If anything things happen because you make a choice based on logic or emotions and on how you react to that situation. “We become what we think about.” Successful people in the world have one thing in common and that is the strange thing because even though they have their own opinions about a lot of topics in this particular topic they all agree. For example:
Marcus Uralious: a mans life is what his thoughts make of it
Ralph Waldo Emerson : A man is what he thinks about all day long
William James: Human beings can alter their minds by altering their attitude of mind.
It is why I do believe that the principles towards success has to do with 80% mental and 20% physical. I can understand that to play such a sport is required to have a specific body type, but just because you do have it and may have the talent does not mean that you will automatically win or have success because some one else with the same specific body type that may not have the same experience as you but is mentally a winner and likes challenges, will be more certain that this person will be likely to work harder, be focused and will therefore win. Keep in mind that believing in a task is a big requirement.
It is a concept that has baffled people around the world, all I can say is those people with a conscious mind all have the same capability. So remember your emotions and thoughts will determine what it is that will happen. Whether you take this or leave it there are people that live by this certain believe and will continue to do so, so be happy and know what you want, if you don’t know then think and sooner or later it will come to you. So don’t force it, and once you do figure it out ACT on it.
