Empower Your Mind To Success

Think and Grow RichMost people don’t realize that an empowered mind is an amazing asset. Having an empowered mind will determine our circumstances, our opportunities, our health, our happiness, our success level and financial independence. It is essential in learning to achieve our highest potential so that we can become great leaders and empower others to be successful.

People tend to forget about their dreams, not because they couldn’t achieve them, but because of the influence of parents, teachers and other authoritative people telling what one can or cannot do.

You have likely heard of the book ‘Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill, or have read it. When one of my mentors introduced me to this book, my first thought was how can one “think… and grow rich”? After reading it a couple of times, one powerful lesson I gained from this book, is that with a clear desire and a concrete game plan, anyone can be successful, because that burning desire gives such an inspiration to follow one’s dreams and achieve higher living and fulfillment.

I realized how much our mind influences what we do and impacts everything else. Our thoughts are more powerful than we truly think they are. With the right mindset, our thoughts can stimulate creativity and belief in abundance and prosperity. Napolean Hill said: “Whatever the mind can conceive and then believe it can achieve.” Very powerful words.

I would bet that there is not a single mentor or successful person that would not agree.

This classic book, written so many years ago, is filled with so many simple messages, that I intend to read it over and over. I hope that you will too. If you do not have this book, don’t get it at the library, buy a copy and read it. You’ll quickly understand why to reread this valuable book. To your success…

You must take personal responsibility

“You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself.” Jim Rohn
All we can ever control is our thoughts, feelings and actions which produce our results. Trying to control anything else, or stewing in blame only leads to frustration and stress. All of our results in life are the product of our Thoughts – Feelings – and Actions in that order. If you want to change your results, you must start by changing your thoughts.

I learned this lesson a few years ago, when I reflected back on the experience of building the two homes I’ve built. The first one went remarkably well. At the time I was single, so I made all of the decisions and to be honest was quite naive about what was involved in getting that done. My mindset was that in the end things would work out, and what do you know they did (and in hindsight, I don’t know how I got so much done as quickly as I did).

The second house is the one my wife and I built the year after we got married. We both have very similar beliefs, and yet a few very different ones as well. Her experience growing up was that people weren’t to be trusted as her family had a number of instances that gave them reasons to be cautious. I on the other hand grew up in a home that never had locked doors, and the cars often had the keys in the ignition. We were taught to trust everyone until they give you a reason not to.

During the construction of this home, we found ourselves getting caught up in every little delay or challenge. We made a point of re-telling every incident to anyone who’d listen (I think looking for sympathy). It seemed like every time we turned around there was another problem or delay. Now looking back on it, I can see how we contributed to this. By putting all of our energy and getting emotional about the problems, we were delivered more. It was the analogy “what you focus on expands” in living colour.

I now constantly work on ensuring my dominant thoughts are more on what I do want, and less on what I don’t want. I certainly don’t claim to have this practice mastered, and I don’t know anyone who does. We all have negative thoughts, or doubts. The key is not to get stuck in a cycle of giving those thoughts energy.

If you’re looking for support in changing your focus Jack Canfield is one of the best known mentors/authors/speakers on the planet and has a wide range of services to support you.
