Shoot for the Moon!

Written by: Reneca

I am reading a really great book called Think & Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill.  Although the book was written in 1937, the information in it is still very relevant to today.  Like everything, success starts in the mind; this is the primus of this book.  There is a section in the book on self-confidence, which I feel has a great deal of power.  In affect it is a contract with yourself, to be dedicated to your success. Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think. 



Self-Confidence Formula

First.  I know that I have the ability to achieve the object of my definite purpose I life.  Therefore, I demand of myself persistent, continuous action toward its attainment, and I here and now promise to render such action.

Second. I realize the dominating thoughts of my mind will eventually reproduce themselves in outward, physical action, and gradually transform themselves into physical reality.  Therefore, I will concentrate my thoughts for thirty minutes daily upon the task of thinking of the person I intend to become, thereby creating in my mind a clear mental picture of that person.

Third.  I know through the principle of autosuggestion, any desire that I persistently hold in my mind will eventually seek expression through some practical means of attaining the object back of it.  Therefore, I will devote ten minutes daily to demanding of myself the development of self-confidence.

Fourth.  I have clearly written down a description of my definite chief aim in life, and I will never stop trying until I shall have developed sufficient self-confidence for its attainment.

Fifth.  I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure, unless built upon truth and justice.  Therefore, I will engage in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it affects.  I will succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use, and the cooperation of other people.  I will induce others to serve me, because of my willingness to serve others.  I will eliminate hatred, envy jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism, by developing love for all humanity, because I know that a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success.  I will cause others to believe in me, because I will believe in them, and in myself.

                I will sign my name to this formula, commit it to memory, and repeat it aloud once a day, with full faith that it will gradually influence my thoughts and actions so that I will become a self-reliant and  successful person.

If we could apply just these principles of self-confidence, just think of all the positive energy that would be flowing around us. 

I hope you all shoot for the moon (with your goals) and know that at the very least you’ll fall amongst the stars!!!!

Have a great weekend!

Much Love
