How to get everything you want faster
than you ever thought possible
uccess is goals and all else is commentary. This is the great discovery throughout all of human
history. Your life only begins to become a great life when you clearly identify what it is that you
want, make a plan to achieve it and then work on that plan every single day.
“The primary reason for failure is that people do not develop new
plans to replace those plans that didn’t work.” (Napoleon Hill)
The three turning points in my life were these: First, I discovered
that I was responsible for my life, and for everything that hap
pened to me. I learned that this life is not a rehearsal for some
thing else. This is the real thing.
In every study of successful people, the acceptance of personal
responsibility seems to be the starting point. Before that, nothing happens. After you accept complete
responsibility, your whole life begins to change.
The second turning point for me, which came when I was 24 years old, was my discovery of goals.
Without really knowing what I was doing, I sat down and made a list of 10 things I wanted to accomplish
in the foreseeable future. I promptly lost the list. But 30 days later, my whole life had changed. Almost
every goal on my list had already been achieved or partially achieved.
The third turning point in my life came when I discovered that “You can learn anything you need to learn
to accomplish any goal you can set for yourself.” No one is smarter than you and no one is better than
you. All business skills, sales skills and moneymaking skills are learnable. Everyone who is good in any
area today was once poor in that area. The top people in every field were at one time not even in that field
and didn’t even know that that field existed. And what hundreds of thousands of other people have done,
you can do as well.
