Earl Nightingale - The Strangest Secret
"Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal." (goal)
A success is anyone who is doing/pursuing deliberately a predetermined goal/job,
because that's what he or she decided to do ... deliberately.
Instead of competing, all we have to do is create
People with goals succeed because they know where they are going.
It's that simple.
Here is the key to success, and, the key to failure.
"We become what we think about"
And if we think about nothing ... we become nothing.
The human mind is much like a farmer's land...
...the mind, like the land ... will return what you plant, but it doesn't care what you plant.
All ... priceless possessions are free.
The human mind isn’t used because we take it for granted.
So decide now. What is it you want? Plant your goal in your mind.
It's the most important decision you'll ever make in your entire life.
All you have got to do is plant that seed in your mind, care for it, work steadily towards your goal, and it will become a reality. It not only will, there's no way that it cannot.
Every one of us is the sum total of our own thoughts.
We must control our thinking.
This is The Strangest Secret in the world. Actually, it is not a secret at all.
Life should be an exciting adventure. It should never be a bore.
A person should work fully, be alive. You should be glad to get out of bed in the morning.
You should be doing a job that you like to do because you do it well
"For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction".
We can achieve nothing without paying the price
- Think Constructively- You will become what you think about.
- Imagine - Remember the word imagination and let your mind begin to soar.
- Courage - Concentrate on your goal every day.
- Save - ten percent of what you earn.
- Action - Ideas are worthless unless we act on them.
Second, stop thinking about what it is you fear
The moment you decide on a goal to work toward, you immediately are a successful person
"Act as though it were impossible to fail"
...remember that you must reap that what you sow.
If you sow negative thoughts, your life will be filled with negative things.
If you sow positive thoughts, your life will be cheerful, successful, and positive.
The only way to earn money is by providing people
with services or products which are needed and useful.
Success is not the result of making money.
Earning money is the result of success-
and success is in direct proportion to our service.
Don't concern yourself with the money.
Be of service ... build ... work ...dream ... create!
No person can get rich themselves, unless they first enrich others.
There are no exceptions to a law.
Pay the price by becoming the person you want to become.
