ThePeopleAlchemist Edit: book review – The Law of Success
The 16 principles of success :
1: The Master Mind – Telepathy, ether, vibration, and how it all is the basis for how the world functions. A mastermind is the alliance of two minds joining harmoniously. The power formed from two or more minds coming together is more powerful than one alone. This is strictly for minds who trust each other and are interested in the excellent success of all parties involved.
2: Your Definite Chief Aim – You have to know what you want so that you can start receiving it.
3: Self Confidence – Believe that you are worthy of success and that you can attain it. Without this simple understanding, you will probably get nowhere with most of your goals.
4: The Habit of Saving – Stop trying to get a Porsche if you feel more comfortable paying for a Panda. You are on the path to easily afford a Porsche.
5: Initiative and Leadership – Leadership skills can be habituated, and you don’t have to be a born leader. Hill acknowledges the penalties of leadership. Leaders are not always spoken of sweetly. However, this should not deter you from becoming a leader. Nobody bothers slandering a person who isn’t somewhere near the upper rings of the ladder of success.
6: Imagination – Dream, and use your imagination to help lead you to attain your goals. Although making good decisions comes with use, dreams and actions are closely related.
7: Enthusiasm – Mix enthusiasm with your work – do something you are enthusiastic about- and you will not get tired nearly as quickly. Hill explains the things that can contribute to enthusiasm: wearing nice clothes. The opposite is also true, and this is to be avoided. Feel good about your appearance because it also affects the first impression on others who can be instrumental in your path to success.
8 Self Control – Auto-suggestion is like reprogramming your subconscious mind to believe what you want it to believe – to replace your old beliefs with new ones that will serve you better. This takes self-control. When you take control of your thoughts, you can take control of your success. Make these thoughts the ones you want to believe, and see yourself the way you want others to see yourself.
9 Habit of Doing More than Paid For – If you are going to complain about your work, you are not going anywhere. Do the work you have before you, then ask what else you may do. Doing this makes you valuable, and you will surely reach a point where you are being paid very well. Valuable employees are… valuable. This is also and especially true when you are working for yourself.
10 Pleasing Personality – “Have one. Don’t point things out on people, don’t hang your head and say “I’m tired”. Mediocrity does not care if you are pleasant or not. Success does”.
11 Accurate Thought – Sort “facts” from “information” and use auto-suggestion in conjunction with focused thoughts.
12 Concentration – “Concentration is the act of focusing the mind on a given desire until ways and means for its realisation have been worked out and successfully put into operation”.
PEOPLE ARE THE KEY
13 Cooperation – The implementation of cooperation between you and others who will help you get to your goal. Cooperation must also exist between your conscious and subconscious mind so that they may work harmoniously in your favour.
14 Failure – Failure is inevitable, and be happy to bring you one step closer to success. Replace “failure” with “temporary defeat”.
15 Tolerance – Don’t practice prejudice or racism. It is ignorance, and it is a barrier to success. Just see the best in people and situations, and focus only on your goal and the good for all.
