How was it?
Have you accomplish everything you wanted to?
Did you have any successes, or
Why don’t you take few minutes and write down everything you’ve accomplished
and also make a list of things you wanted to accomplished but for one reason or another didn’t (use that list for 2011)
The great news is that when you wake up tomorrow, you’ll get to wipe the slate clean, reset the clock and start fresh.
As of tomorrow morning you’ll have another year, or 52 weeks, or 365 days, or 8760 hours, or 525,600 minutes to reach your goals, so make it count.
When I woke up this morning at 5:00, picked up Think and Grow Rich for the 3rd year in a row and read the first 2 chapters, I finally realized why all the successful people I know read this book year after year after year.
Even though it’s the 3rd time I’m reading it, it’s like I never read it before, or maybe I just wasn’t ready to receive the information until now, but I just couldn’t put it down.
If you have this book on your shelf collecting dust, I recommend you find it right now and start reading it. If you don’t have it, I found a PDF of it and attached it to this email for you.
Here is a short excerpt from page 35-36 that I thought would be very helpful to you:
“Every human being who reaches the age of understanding of the purpose of money, wishes for it. Wishing will not bring riches. But desiring riches with a state of mind that becomes an obsession,
then planning definite ways and means to acquire riches, and backing those plans with persistence which does not recognize failure, will bring riches.
The method by which DESIRE for riches can be transmuted into its financial equivalent, consists of six definite, practical steps, viz:
First. Fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire. It is not sufficient merely to say “I want plenty of money.” Be definite as to the amount. (There is a psychological reason for definiteness which will be described in a subsequent chapter).
Second. Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the money you desire. (There is no such reality as “something for nothing.)
Third. Establish a definite date when you intend to possess the money you desire.
Fourth. Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire, and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.
Fifth. Write out a clear, concise statement of the amount of money you intend to acquire, name the time limit for its acquisition, state what you intend to give in return for the money, and describe clearly the plan through which you intend to accumulate it.
Sixth. Read your written statement aloud, twice daily, once just before retiring at night, and once after arising in the morning. AS YOU READ–SEE AND FEEL AND BELIEVE YOURSELF ALREADY IN POSSESSION OF THE MONEY.
It is important that you follow the instructions described in these six steps. It is especially important that you observe, and follow the instructions in the sixth paragraph. You may complain that it is impossible for you to “see yourself in possession of money” before you actually have it. Here is where a BURNING DESIRE will come to your aid. If you truly DESIRE money so keenly that your desire is an obsession, you will have no difficulty in convincing yourself that you will acquire it. The object is to want money, and to become so determined to have it that you CONVINCE yourself you will have it.”
Anyway, enjoy the book, have fun celebrating everything you’ve achieved in 2010 and when you wake up tomorrow, hit the ground running and make 2011 the best year ever.
Happy New Year
