Napoleon Hill: Cooperation – The Necessary Instructions For Action

Gary Vee kind of s***s on the secret, saying that “if you think you’re just going to visualize sitting in a yacht, thing again!”  He was talking on The Breakfast Club, a controversial show, and shortly after one of the speakers said, “hey, I actually believe that – but you have to follow it with action.”

See you have physical action and mental action.  You can be very active with your mind while your body is inactive.  If you believe that visualizing a billion dollars in your lap will make you obtain a billion dollars without inspired action or a burning desire, think again.

There are some men of action.  One his a dynamo and one is a balanced wheel.

The man who is a “balanced-wheel” who does nothing but compile facts, figures and statistics is just as much as a man of action as the man who goes upon the platform and sells an idea to a thousand people by the sheer power of his active personality.

A good reference is when a man, who has hated me, called for a meeting and almost my ahead.  He sat there showing statistics that were completely covering up the internal problem of the company.  He said, “your renewals are going down.”  I can sit here and justify why my renewals are going down, but the fact and matter is that one of the “top” academic teachers in the company had a 30% lower mark in renewals than me – yet I was being scrutinized heavily for students “not renewing.”

“The world pays you for what you do and not for what you know.”

This statement could be a bit misconstrued.  What the world really pays you for is what you do and what you can make others do.

A man who can make others co-operate and do effective team-work, or inspire others so that the become more active, is no less a man of action than the man who renders effective service in a more direct manner. – Napoleon Hill

The main purpose of this book and what I’m trying to convey is to help you analyze yourself and determine what your native ability.  Figuring out your definite chief-aim is the first part.

Let’s now talk about how action can be developed.

First: Form the habit of doing each day the most distasteful tasks first.  This procedure will be difficult at first, but after you have formed the habit you will take pride in pitching into the hardest and most undesirable part of your work first.

THE MUNDANE TASKS! Remember I’ve been saying this for almost two years.  Completing the most mundane tasks first and free-ing up those attention units are pivotal.  Some people like to brush it aside, but get it done, and out of the way first.

Example, if I have to write monotonously boring reports for students, bet your a$$ I’m going to do it almost immediately.  The philosophy in terms of putting something on paper for a student rather than explaining it to them face-to-face is quite unsettling.

If someone tells me to do something that I don’t want to do…but that I have to do, I’m going to hurry up and do it.

Another example is preparing for a big project.  If my colleagues say: “could you please send this, come in and talk to us about this…blah blah blah” – I’m going to do that immediately.

Second: Place this sign in front of you where you can see it in your daily work, and put a copy in your bedroom, where it will greet you as you retire and when you arise: “Do not tell them what you can do; show them!”

Third: Repeat the following words, aloud, twelve times each night just before you go to sleep: “Tomorrow I will do everything that should be done, when it should be done, and as it should be done.  I will perform the most difficult tasks first because this will destroy the habit of procrastination and develop the habit of action in its place.”

Fourth: Carry Out These Instructions with faith in their soundness and with belief that they will develop action, in body and in mind, sufficient to enable you to realize your definite chief-aim.

Summary of Principles Involved In Accurate Thinking

So, to break down this entire chapter of accurate thinking, we now know that the body is not singular, but plural – that it consists of billions on top of billions of living, intelligent, individual cells.  With organised work, they’re able to maintain this spectacular being called the human body.

These cells have their respective outings such as the actions of the subconscious mind or automatic action of the mind; and the subconscious section of the mind controlled and directed by the conscious.

In other words, the habits, actions, and involuntary affirmations done over time becomes imbedded into our subconscious.

The Value of Adopting A Chief-Aim

These lessons and podcasts on Accurate Thought not only describes the real purpose of a definite chief aim, but it explains in simple terms the principles on how it could be realized. Create that objectives first…the one which you’re striving for.  Outline, in great detail, all the objectives on a piece of paper and create a definite statement of it in the nature of a definite chief aim. By referencing it everyday, you will hand it over to the subconscious mind – which will ultimately transform the desire into material form. Podcasts down below in following your definite chief-aim.

Instructions For Applying Your Definite Chief-Aim

 

Desire

You need to build upon a deeply seat, strong desire for the object of your chief-aim.  Do not “wish,” because “wish” is a future conditional indicating that it’s in the future and you’ll never possess it.  Having a strong desire of achievement is far more powerful because you’re devoting all your energy into the universe into the attainment of that objective.

Suggestion & Auto-Suggestion

The impressions that are in one’s environment dictates what the paradigm/subconscious is.  It could be statements, facts, T.V., parents, news, friends…..suggestions are given continuously all day, every day.  These influences have control over us.  It’s entirely up to YOU to control what suggestions/auto-suggestions you want to accept.  Be very wary of who you’re around and especially the environment you’re in because it cultivates that mental faculty, regardless if you like it or not.

 

 

 

Jack Canfield – Develop A Positive Money Consciousness

“There is a secret psychology to money.  Most people don’t know about it.  That’s why most people never become financially successful.  A lack of money is not the problem’ it is merely a symptom of what’s going on inside of you.” – T. Harv Eker

Let’s identify some of these limiting beliefs….

  1. Money doesn’t grow on trees.
  2. There’s not enough money to go around.
  3. It’s selfish to want a lot of money.
  4. You have to have money to make money.
  5. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.
  6. You have to work too hard to get money.
  7. Money is the root of all evil.
  8. People with money are evil, selfish, and unethical.
  9. Rich people are greedy and dishonest.
  10. You can’t buy happiness.
  11. The more money you have, the more problems you have.
  12. If you are rich, you can’t be spiritual.

Now that we have listed these, all of these messages from early childhood can actually dilute your later financial success because they subconsciously emit a vibration that can cancel out your conscious intentions.

That goes for experiences, too.  I had a terrible experience tripping over a 300m intermediate hurdle on a spring evening in 2006 – I never ran it again because of what happened.

See, a lot of people believe that money brings pain and misery, not ok to make more money than your family, becoming rich or successful would violate the family code, I’ll become a burden.

We make all these excuses that act as a psychological muscle. It holds us back and will continue holding you back if you don’t release the breaks.

So, I’ll give you three steps to turn around your limiting beliefs about money.

  1. Write down your limiting belief. – Money is the root of all evil.
  2. Challenge, make fun of, and argue with the limiting belief. – Money is the root of all philanthropy, might be the root of evil for someone who is evil, etc.

You can even write out your new money beliefs on 3×5 index cards and add them to your stack of affirmations to be read out loud with enthusiasm and passion everyday.

3. Create a positive turnaround statement.  – Create a new statement that is the opposite of the original belief.  “When it comes to me, money is the root of love, joy, and good works.

Stephen Covey – Begin With The End In Mind: Personal Mission Statement

People, we need to come up with a personal mission statement, as what Stephen Covey has posted in his book that’s based around a philosophy or creed in which you will abide by.

Stephen Covey – Because each individual is unique, a personal mission statement will reflect that uniqueness, both in content and form.

Here’s an example of one….

  • Succeed at home first.
  • Seek and merit divine help.
  • Never compromise with honesty.
  • Remember the people involved.
  • Hear both sides before judging.
  • Obtain counsel of others.
  • Defend those who are absent.
  • Be sincere yet decisive.
  • Develop one new proficiency a year.
  • Plan tomorrow’s work today.
  • Hustle while you wait.
  • Maintain a positive attitude.

This is like what I’ve seen in Napoleon Hill’s book in terms of signing each law at the end of his chapter, saying you will abide by the rules that you would have read.

So, what’s your creed? If you want to understand this blog more, I suggest listening to my podcast down below.
