The Secret’s Seed

Many of you probably have seen The Secret produced by Rhonda Byrne. She starts it off with the her story where things were falling apart in her life until her daughter gave her a book that started her on this journey.

The name of that book is The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles who published it in 1910. It’s a relatively slim book. It’s one of those books that you can read in an hour or two but take a lifetime to explore it fully.

If you would like to get a free copy of it, there’s a site called that is dedicated to it. You can get the book and many other freebies, just for signing up for the newsletter.

I highly recommend adding this to your library.

Leaders are readers

Leaders are readers. As Les Brown says, “The only difference between you and you in five years is the people you meet and the books you read.”

Books are one of the influences I mentioned that can alter your course. All the millionaires I know have large libraries. They have used the information in those books, audios and DVD’s to accelerate them to towards their goals.

Here are some of the basics to get you started:

Thinks and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

Psycho-Cybernetics by Dr. Maxwell Maltz

The Power of Your Subconcious Mind by Dr. Joseph Murphy

After you read those and start putting their lessons into practice, you will figure out what books you need to read after that.

A Space Adventure

Sometimes, I think of my life as being one of the Voyager probes that was launched into space decades ago. The way the controllers got theVoyagers to gather enough speed to exit the solar system was the slingshot effect. They would harness the gravitational pull of a planet to increase the speed of the probe much like a slingshot would increase the velocity of a rock as it is twirled around.

The controllers had to plan the interaction with the planet because not only would it affect speed, it would affect direction as well.

Life has many gravitational pulls that can affect your journey. They range from parents, environment, events, books, movies, quotes and luck. Each influence will alter your path. Some a little, others a lot. Some will speed you up, some will slow you down and others may trap you into orbiting them.

An alteration of just a fraction of a degree in your direction can translate into a very large distance between where you were originally headed and where you wound up.

Be mindful of the influences in your life. If you find yourself being pulled in a direction you don’t desire, fire your rockets to correct your course. Plot a destination you desire so that you know when you are getting off course. And look for beneficial influences that can speed your journey to success.

Time Freedom Means You Care

Having time freedom and money freedom allows you to spend time with the ones you care. Children often spell love as t-i-m-e. I get to be involved with my sons as they grow up. I pick them up from school, get to know how their day went and get plenty of quality time because I spend quantity time with them.

Another aspect of time freedom struck home last week. My oldest son had some minor foot surgery done and one of the requirements is that an adult had to be with him for 24 hours after the surgery. Ordinarily, parents would’ve had to decide who would burn a vacation day to be with their children in this situation. For me, the biggest disruption was the fact we had to be at the hospital at 6 am. We left at 9:30 am and we were home by 9:45.

Since I work from home, I could be there for him without a major disruption in my day.

Sharpen Your Saw

Every once in a while it is important to sharpen your saw. Relax, review and renew.

Take a deep breath and relax as you exhale. Get into the habit of doing this during your day. Pick events that happen often – getting in your car, sitting down at your desk, even going to the bathroom (make it even more of a rest room.)

Every week, take a major time block – 15-30 minutes – to review the last week and plan out the new week. Every night, take 5 mintues and review your day with an eye to celebrating accomplishments and learning lessons.

As often as you can, renew your enthusiasm by reviewing your ‘why’. Pull out your goal cards and ‘relive’ accomplishing them. Review your prospecting material to sell yourself again on your opportunity.

Sharpen your saw so you can be more effective.
