What is the “IT” I’m talking about? I must admit I truly believe that I have come a long way from a year ago when I was more unsure of myself than I am now. I have gained a lot of confidence but honestly I have a ways to go before I get the goal.
I have been working on myself. I have some other tools that I want to share with you that have helped me tremendously. First, Success Magazine, has been a wonderful resource to help me to succeed internally. I am learning that you have to feel that success from the inside in order for it to show on the outside. It is definitely a process that you must go through – each individually – there are no shortcuts. To be honest, I tried to do the shortcuts and stopped when I realized that I had no choice but to go through the process. Stopping stalls your progress and eventual growth but that is also part of the process because you have to take responsibility for your success, failure, etc. It’s all yours. You have to own it.
The other tool that has helped me tremendously is Kevin Trudeau‘s cd set, Your Wish Is Your Command, http://www.naturalcures.com. This is an amazing cd set that helps you unlock the magic inside of you. I would highly recommend this set for anyone who wants to succeed. I also read Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich. This book helped me to really understand that you have to control your thoughts because if you don’t by default you give that power to someone else. That is the “IT” I am speaking of – Your thoughts. Remember, your thoughts are things and you don’t control them, someone else will.
Until Next Time,
Remember Your Thoughts are Things
Obviously I have been reading, “Think and Grow Rich”. It got me to thinking about my Burning Desire. You know, what exactly is my burning desire? Well, it got me to thinking about what I actually went to college for. I went to Fiorello H. LaGuardia Community College for Court Stenography. I said I wanted to be a court stenographer but I didn’t have a burning desire to be a court stenography. That is exactly the reason why I am not a court stenographer. Looking back, I realize that I have had wonderful opportunities to be many things in my life. I started on good paths but never finished. Now, even though I did run into some racism when I first started out going on interviews for the court stenography field, I have to admit that when I ran into that opposition I didn’t get angry about it and make a vow to become what “they” didn’t want me to become. Instead, I just switched venues and went into the secretarial field. That wasn’t on “them” – that was on me. I didn’t become a court stenographer because I didn’t have a burning desire to become one. Because I realize now that if I wanted to become a court stenographer I would have and nothing or no one would have stopped me.
Which brings me to the title of this post. I have a burning desire to be more than I am now. In this case, a wholesale real estate investor. And nothing and no one is going to stop me – Including myself. Sometimes we can be our own worse enemy.
What’s Your Burning Desire? And who is going to stop you? You?
I’m being totally honest here and telling you that I haven’t gotten in touch with Mr. Tyrone Taylor yet to get my first deal done. It seems that whenever I make my mind to do something – something else gets in the way. A bill, extra money being taken out of your checking account for something you forgot about, etc. Always something that seems to get in the way.
This reminds me exactly of something I read in Napoleon Hill’s, Think and Grow Rich — “…Failure is a trickster with a keen sense of irony and cunning. It takes great delight in tripping one when success is almost within reach.”
This is exactly how I feel – that keen sense of irony and cunning. Well, I’m not going to let it happen to me. I’m going to get my money together somehow, someway and get signed up with Tyrone Taylor.
I’ll keep you informed of my progress. Let me know about yours too. My thoughts are, “I’m not going to let anything stop me from getting where I want to go”
I’ve been reading T. Harv Eker’s, Millionaire Mind. I’ve been practicing every morning putting my hand on my heart saying, “My inner world creates my outer world” and then putting my hand on my forehead and saying, “I have a millionaire mind.
You might want to try that too. It has been helping me. Maybe it will help you.
