Start Your Day
Take 30 minutes
each morning to sit quietly and to reflect on your goals.
You'll find when
you read the biographies and autobiographies of successful men and
women that almost every one of them began their upward trajectory
to success when they begin getting up early in the morning and
spending time with themselves.
Feed Your Mind
with Positive Ideas
This is called
the Golden Hour. The first hour sets the tone for the day. The
things that you do in the first hour prepare your mind and set you
up for the entire day. During the first thirty to sixty minutes,
take time to think and review your plans for the future.
Use Your Quiet
Here are four
things that you can do during that quiet time in the morning.
- Number one is personal
planning. Take time to review your plans for accomplishing your
goals and change your plans if necessary.
- Number two is think of better
ways to accomplish your goals and objectives. As an exercise,
assume that the way you're going about it is totally wrong and
imagine going about it totally differently. What would you do
different from what you're doing right now?
- Number three, reflect on the
valuable lessons that you have learned and are learning as you move
toward your goals.
- Number four; calmly visualize
your goal as a reality. Close your eyes, relax, smile, and see your
goals as though they were already a reality. Rewrite your major
goals everyday in the present tense. Rewrite them as though they
already existed. Write "I earn X dollars." "I have a net worth of
X." "I weigh a certain number of pounds." This exercise of writing
and rewriting your goals everyday is one of the most powerful you
will ever learn.
Your life will
start to take off at such a speed that you'll have to put on your
seatbelt. Remember, the starting point for achieving success is the
development of an attitude of unshakable confidence in yourself and
in your ability to reach your goals. Everything we've talked about
is a way of building up and developing your belief system until you
finally reach the point where you are absolutely convinced that
nothing can stop you from achieving what you set out to
No one starts out
with this kind of an attitude, but you can develop it using the law
of accumulation. Everything counts. No efforts are ever lost. Every
extraordinary accomplishment is the result of thousands of ordinary
accomplishments that no one recognizes or appreciates. The greatest
challenge of all is for you to concentrate your thinking
single-mindedly on your goal and by the law of attraction, you
will, you must inevitably draw into your life the people,
circumstances and opportunities you need to achieve your
mastered yourself and your thinking, you will become a living
magnet for ideas and opportunities to become successful. It's has
worked for every successful person. It will work for you. When you
change your thinking, you will change your life.
Now, here are two
things you can do every single day to keep your mind focused on

every morning a little bit earlier and plan your day in advance.
Take some time to think about your goals and how you can best
achieve them. This sets the tone for the whole day.
on the valuable lessons you are learning each day as you work
toward your goals. Be prepared to correct your course and adjust
your actions. Be absolutely convinced that you are moving rapidly
toward your goals, no matter what happens temporarily on the
outside. Just hang in there!
