Its’ how you think

“You are a living magnet. What you attract into your life is in harmony with your dominant thoughts.”
– Brian Tracy


Defeat is a temporary glitch

Look upon temporary defeat as a signpost that says, “Stop, go this way instead.” One of the qualities of leaders is that they never use the words “failure” or “defeat”. Instead, they use words like “valuable learning experience” or “temporary glitch”.

The great football coach Vince Lombardi had the right spirit. After a game in which the Green Bay Packers were defeated, one of the reports asked Lombardi how he felt about losing. Lombardi replied, “We didn’t lose, we just ran out of time.”

Maximum Achievement by Brian Tracy

I am a voracious reader and I only consider several of the many, many book I’ve read to be as powerful and life altering as Maximum Achievement by Brian Tracy. A culmination of 25 years of research and thousands of hours of seminars, Maximum Achievement is a “How to” guide to better every aspect of your life.

You will learn that success starts on the inside. Brian Tracy lists the first of “The Seven Ingredients of Success”, as peace of mind. When you live in harmony with your highest values and convictions and are living a perfectly balanced life, you will enjoy peace of mind. Without this first ingredient nothing is possible.

The following six ingredients build on one another and all have to do with your inner self. He explains that the seven ingredients are like targets to aim at. When you know exactly what you want, and achieve a positive, optimistic outlook, you can begin to unlock your inner powers to succeed.

The system contained within Maximum Achievement is straightforward and simple, yet profoundly practical. Practicing what you learn in this book will allow you to enjoy greater peace of mind, better health, improved personal relationships, and greater financial freedom. Your life will improve starting with your inner self.

First, life is hard. It always has been and it always will be. It’s never been any different for you or me or anyone else. The good thing is that if you accept this basic truth, life somehow becomes a little easier because you don’t suffer so much from feelings of frustration and injustice.

Second, everything you are or ever will be is up to you. You are where you are today because that is where you have chosen to be. You are always free to choose your actions, or inactions, and your life today is the sum total of your choices, good or bad. If you want your future to be different, you have to make better choices.

Third, and perhaps most important, you can learn anything you need to learn to become anyone you want to become, to achieve anything you want to achieve. There are very few limitations and most of them are on the inside, not the outside.
