What Kind of Person are You?

You may have heard that there are three kinds of people in the world: those that make things happen, those that watch things happen, and those who wonder what happened. It is a good idea to evaluate, to which of those groups you belong. Of course, if you have internalized the habit of being proactive, you will be in the first group (make things happen). If you are not yet in the first group, there’s still room enough for you.

Badass: Let me Count the Ways

Atip explained that about 95% of people fail to achieve outstanding success. He said he knew that by listening to a famous Warrior who’s opinion he respected. And then he added there that are almost 7 billion people on the planet and if only 5% of them had achieved outstanding success, that’s about a third of a billion people.

“Wow!” I was impressed.

He then said something that made me stop and think.

“So, that means there are about a third of a billion ways to become successful.”

“But hold on there,” I replied “they can’t all be doing different things. There just can’t be that many ways to become successful.”

Atip scratched his nose as a grin began to form itself across his face.

“No,” he said “You are right. There are probably a lot more than that!”

Don’t You Just Love Your Job?

The, now sadly departed, motivational speaker, Zig Ziglar, once told a story about a woman from Alabama who came to see him, asking for advice. She told him she had a horrible job and that she hated everything about it. All of the people she worked with were unpleasant, and she wanted to know what she could do to change things. But Zig’s advice turned out to be not what she expected at all.

He told her to write a note to herself and, on it, she should list all of the reasons she actually liked her job. The woman was at first incredulous, insisting that there was absolutely nothing she could write on such a list. But Zig persisted and, in the ten minutes that were available to them, together they made a list of 22 things that she did like about her job including her above-average salary, the generous holiday entitlement, her own private office, and so on. Zig then told her to change the word ‘like’ to ‘love’ and for the following few weeks, read the list aloud each evening, using each of the statements as positive affirmations.

A few month later, he was delighted to notice the same woman at a sales conference they were both attending. During the coffee break, he took the opportunity to speak with her.

“How nice to see you again,” he began. “How is the job going?”

“Thank you for asking. Everything is going very well indeed,” she replied. “You simply won’t believe how the attitude of everyone has changed!”

It was quite a result!

Developing the Prosperity Consciousness

What I find particularly interesting in Napoleon Hill’s analysis is the connection he makes between having the ‘poverty consciousness’ and the habit of saving. He says that having a definite major objective and constantly keeping it in mind will effectively destroy the poverty consciousness, with the effect that:

You will actually begin to DEMAND prosperity, you will begin to expect it, you will begin to prepare yourself to receive it and to use it wisely, thus paving the way or setting the stage for the development of the Habit of Saving.

Napoleon Hill from The Laws of Success in 16 Lessons

Thus, developing the ‘abundance mentality’, or ‘prosperity consciousness’ as he calls it, is one of the fruits of being focused upon your own individual mission, and the habit of saving is, in part, a product of that attitude. I really like the way he explains the poverty consciousness (also referred to as the scarcity mentality).

Fix in your mind the thought that your ability is limited to a given earning capacity and you will never earn more than that, because the law of habit will set up a definite limitation of the amount you can earn. Your subconscious mind will accept this limitation.

Napoleon Hill from The Laws of Success in 16 Lessons

Personally, I think the above statements are both very powerful indeed. Whether you have an abundance or scarcity mentality (prosperity or poverty consciousness) is an important part of the process of succeeding because your dominant attitude will attract or repel the opportunities to serve which are an important part of the process of acquiring wealth.

Which Way is Success?

Once upon a time, a certain young man travelled to a distant land in order to seek the counsel of a famous recluse. After a long journey, the young man was delighted to eventually discover the wise old sage sitting silently near a babbling stream. As the young man sat, the old man smiled and looked deep into the eyes of the traveller.

“Which way is success?” asked the young man.

But, the wise old man did not speak. Instead, he pointed toward the horizon, to some place far away.

The young man, delighted to have received an answer, thanked the guru and took off in the appropriate direction. But, after he had travelled only a short way, there was a loud noise – a kind of “splat!”  Eventually, the man staggered back into the view of the old sage, surprised and a bit bruised too. Assuming he must have misunderstood the instruction, he repeated his question. The guru again pointed silently toward to the same spot in the distance.

Somewhat puzzled, the traveller walked slowly away but, after a little time, there was another loud noise. The young man slowly crawled back, bewildered, hurt, and angry too. “Hey” he shouted at the old sage, “I thought you were supposed to know the way, but your directions seem a little faulty to me because, every time I follow them, I get wiped out! Will you stop all of this pointing and talk?”

Only then did the wise old man speak, and what he said was this: “Success is that way my friend, but it is a little further on than the splat!”
