10 foundations for Success by Jim Rohn : With commentary by Darren Hardy (editor at Success Magazine) Here are some notes I took with some of my own commentary and images added by me about one of my greatest mentors, the world-renowned author and mentor Jim Rohn! It was a sales video for an awesome new training program from Success Magazine. Jim’s 10 foundations for Success When he was 25, his mentors gave him some of the best advice: “For things to change for you, you have to change Stop wishing things were easier, wish you were better."
PLAYING TO WIN T Harv Eker believes: “The first thing I did was commit to my success and playing to win. I swore I would focus and not even consider leaving this business until I was a millionaire or more. This was radically different from my previous efforts, where, because I always thought short-term, I would constantly get side-tracked by either good opportunities or when things got tough.” He also stresses that there is a big difference between the roots and the fruits, the fruits are what we have already grown, and no change can come from the past. But to grow more, and better fruits, what needs to be done is to strengthen our roots. So, with this in mind, to get a Millionaire Mind you must first work on yourself, and on your deeper self, so that you can think like a Millionaire, and get the Millionaire Mind. DECLARATIONS VS. AFFIRMATIONS
MOST VALUABLE SKILL “The most valuable skill that you could ever develop is the skill of directing your thoughts toward what you want—to be adept at quickly evaluating all situations and then quickly coming to the conclusion of what you most want—and then giving your undivided attention to that.” That’s very close to the exact definition of the Law of Attraction ! As Esther and Jerry make clear: The ability to direct your thoughts toward what you want is THE most valuable skill you could ever develop. And, to develop ANY skill, you've gotta practice. Are you practising? What is your reality, your life experience? Are you happy? Really, deep down, how do you feel about your life, your reality? Are you living a good life, following your bliss, is your life all that you ever could dream of? Or, perhaps you’re like the majority, your content, you have a steady routine: Get up, shower, breakfast, commute, work all day, come home, have dinner, watch a bit of tv, go to bed, rinse and repeat… Most people do not realize that they have the energy that creates worlds inside them, their god-self, spirit, or the energy of Stars within them, and if they try, they can rewire their brains to just feel good! Once they get that feeling, the Hicks like to call it ‘Getting into the Vortex’, amazing things start happening, we can call these synchronicities, and these all associated with the Law of Attraction…. Vortex - Law of Attraction Vortex – Law of Attraction You can also say, you are In the Zone, you know you could be at work writing an e-mail, or finishing a project, and everything just seems to flow and you look at your watch and notice that 2 hours just went by, and it feels like you just got off your break. Wow, what a feeling, well try imagining yourself, being in that Zone of Bliss 24/7, and how much your life would radically change just because of this? It would be night and day, wouldn’t it? I actually, while writing these last 2 paragraphs, I was In the Zone, the words just sprang out of my head to the screen. It is AWESOME! “There is nothing more detrimental to your ability to positively attract than a negative attitude toward yourself.” ~ Esther and Jerry Hicks
My purpose is to Serve, what does this even mean? Serve who? Serve what? Serve your heart’s desires, but not your heart’s whims, meaning serving a deeper purpose and more profound truth, yours! How do you find this deeper truth? As you search inside you awaken to it, and yes we are all perfect now with our imperfections, but I believe that we can become much more than our thoughts and basic desires. I also believe that we should strive for more, evolution did not stop when we grew opposable thumbs. SOMETIMES I THINK OPPOSABLE THUMBS WERE INVENTED SO TEENAGE GIRLS COULD USE TEXT MESSAGING. DIANE LANE LIVING YOUR TRUTH As for me personally, I have found what it is to live by my truth; it is to allow and aide others to reach their full potential, and to help this planet and it’s inhabitant to take the next step, or giant leap in human evolution. It is to allow the mind to reach its full capacity, so humanity can truly reach for the stars as we have brought peace to all corners of our planet. The idea here is that before going off exploring the stars, shouldn't we take care of our Earthly problems first, and most urgently:
