"Successful men [and women], in all callings, never stop acquiring specialised knowledge related to their major purpose, business, or profession. Those who are not successful usually make the mistake of believing that the knowledge-acquiring period ends when one finishes school!" - Napoleon Hill

[Quote No.55306] Need Area: Work > Leadership
"THINK AND GROW RICH: 78 years ago, a journalist studied 500 rich men and boiled down their success into 13 steps. Napoleon Hill interviewed more than 500 self-made millionaires over a span of 20 years (although he pre-dated Bill Gates). At the peak of Andrew Carnegie’s career, he crossed paths with an impressive journalist named Napoleon Hill, who he trusted to document — and share with the world — the strategies that turned him into one of the wealthiest and most successful businessmen of all time. ‘It was Mr. Carnegie’s idea that the magic formula, which gave him a stupendous fortune, ought to be placed within reach of people who do not have time to investigate how men make money,’ Hill wrote in the preface of ‘Think And Grow Rich,’ the result of his collaboration with Carnegie. In addition to analysing Carnegie, who became the richest man in the world after starting with little more than a penny upon arriving in the US from Scotland, Hill studied more than 500 self-made millionaires over a span of 20 years. His interviews and research culminated in the 1937 bestseller, ‘Think And Grow Rich,’ which shares what he calls the ‘money-making secret’ in 13 principles [Refer also to his excellent book ‘The Law of Success In Sixteen Lessons’]. There is no mention of ‘money,’ ‘wealth,’ ‘finances,’ or ‘stocks’ within Hill’s text; he takes a different approach, focusing on breaking down the psychological barriers that prevent many of us from attaining our own fortunes. This approach is still relevant today — 78 years later. …Here are Hill’s 13 steps, in his words and ours: ---------- 1. DESIRE: YOU HAVE TO WANT IT. All of the super wealthy started with a certain amount of dreaming, hoping, planning, and desiring before they became rich. They imagined riches before they saw them in their bank accounts, Hill explains: ‘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 recognise failure, will bring riches.’ This is not so different from the modern-day concept of visualising a savings goal with a specific price tag. ---------- 2. FAITH: BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN ACHIEVE YOUR GOAL. Growing rich starts with your mindset — with belief and faith that you can accumulate wealth. Hill writes: ‘Riches begin in the form of thought! The amount is limited only by the person in whose mind the thought is put into motion. Faith removes limitations!’ …Building wealth all starts with your mindset. ---------- 3. AUTO-SUGGESTION: USE AFFIRMATIONS TO REACH YOUR GOAL. Turning desire for money or success into reality requires sending your subconscious mind phrases and mantras that support your goal. You have to repeat out loud what it is that you want, and how you plan to get it, so you become obsessed with your purpose, Hill explains: ‘Your ability to use the principle of auto-suggestion will depend, very largely, upon your capacity to concentrate upon a given desire until that desire becomes a burning obsession.’ For example, if you aim to save $US1 million for retirement by putting away money every week, you would repeat, ‘I will set aside money this week to have $US1 million in retirement savings,’ as many times as possible each day. ---------- 4. SPECIALISED KNOWLEDGE: GAIN EXPERIENCES AND CONTINUE LEARNING. Knowledge is potential power. An education only becomes powerful and leads to great wealth when it is is organised and applied to life. It also must be continually sought after. You’re never done learning, Hill emphasises: ‘Successful men, in all callings, never stop acquiring specialised knowledge related to their major purpose, business, or profession. Those who are not successful usually make the mistake of believing that the knowledge-acquiring period ends when one finishes school.’ Many modern-day successful and wealthy people are such voracious readers; they never stop learning and challenging their minds. ---------- 5. IMAGINATION: COME UP WITH IDEAS AND VISUALISE YOUR SUCCESS. If you can imagine it, you can create it, says Hill: ‘Ideas are the beginning points of all fortunes. Ideas are products of the imagination ... Man’s only limitation, within reason, lies in his development and use of his imagination.’ Don’t be afraid to come up with, and develop, ideas. ‘Whoever you are, wherever you may live, whatever occupation you may be engaged in, just remember in the future, every time you see the words ‘Coca-Cola,’ that its vast empire of wealth and influence grew out of a single idea,’ Hill writes. Consider Sara Blakely, whose small, disruptive idea — making an incision in a pair of pantyhose — amounted to her booming billion-dollar business, Spanx, and rocketed her into the limelight. ---------- 6. ORGANISED PLANNING: TAKE ACTION. Once you’ve visualized your success, you need to take action and go after exactly what you want. You must act with persistence and enthusiasm. Hill explains: ‘Opportunity has spread its wares before you. Step up to the front, select what you want, create your plan, put the plan into action, and follow through with persistence … Most of us are good ‘starters’ but poor ‘finishers’ of everything we begin. Moreover, people are prone to give up at the first signs of defeat. There is no substitute for persistence.’ For instance, if you’re looking to build wealth, start with forming a financial plan, and determine exactly where you want your money to go. ---------- 7. DECISION: DEFEAT PROCRASTINATION WITH DECISIVENESS. A key trait Hill recognised in all of the individuals he studied who acquired great wealth was decisiveness. Those who settle on decisions quickly know what they want, and they tend to get what they want. He writes: ‘People who fail to accumulate money, without exception, have the habit of reaching decisions, if at all, very slowly, and of changing these decisions quickly and often’ Decisiveness is not just a trait of the wealthy, but one of the most important qualities a leader needs to possess. At the end of the day, making a bad decision is better than making no decision at all. ---------- 8. PERSISTENCE: DON’T STOP UNTIL YOU GET WHAT YOU WANT. Persistence is crucial when trying to accumulate wealth, yet few people possess the willpower required to turn their desire for money into actual money. Hill writes: ‘Riches do not respond to wishes. They respond only to definite plans, backed by definite desires, through constant persistence.’ The most successful people tend to have dealt with, and overcome, failure. ‘I’ve learned that it doesn’t matter how many times you failed,’ Mark Cuban told Smart Business. ‘You only have to be right once. I tried to sell powdered milk. I was an idiot lots of times, and I learned from them all.’ ---------- 9. POWER OF THE MASTER MIND: SURROUND YOURSELF WITH THE BEST. The wealthiest people create a ‘Master Mind‘ - meaning, they surround themselves with talented friends and colleagues who share their vision. The alignment of several smart and creative minds is exponentially more powerful than just one, Hill explains: ‘No individual may have great power without availing himself of the ‘Master Mind’ ... A group of brains coordinated (or connected) in a spirit of harmony will provide more thought-energy than a single brain, just as a group of electric batteries will provide more energy than a single battery.’ This may explain why rich people tend to make friends with other rich people. ‘Exposure to people who are more successful than you are has the potential to expand your thinking and catapult your income,’ writes self-made millionaire Steve Siebold. ‘We become like the people we associate with, and that’s why winners are attracted to winners.’ ---------- 10. THE MYSTERY OF SEX TRANSMUTATION: CHOOSE A COMPATIBLE PARTNER. Sexual energy is an incredibly powerful human energy — it creates physical life and develops emotional life — and when it is harnessed and redirected, it can enhance our creativity, passion, enthusiasm, and persistence, all which are crucial in accumulating wealth, Hill says: ‘Sex desire is the most powerful of human desires. When driven by this desire, men develop keenness of imagination, courage, willpower, persistence, and creative ability unknown to them at other times. Love, romance, and sex are all emotions capable of driving men to heights of super achievement. When combined, these three emotions may lift one to an altitude of genius.’ While this step may feel like a bit of a stretch, having a supportive partner is important to career success. Research also shows that having a conscientious spouse can boost your salary by $US4,000 a year. ---------- 11. THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND: MASTER POSITIVITY AND DISMISS NEGATIVE EMOTIONS. If you truly want to be rich, you have to plant that desire, and then your plan, into your subconscious mind. Hill writes: ‘The subconscious mind will not remain idle! If you fail to plant desires in your subconscious mind, it will feed upon the thought which reach it as the result of your neglect. Positive and negative emotions cannot occupy the mind at the same time. One or the other must dominate. It is your responsibility to make sure that positive emotions constitute the dominating influence of your mind.’ If you want to be successful and grow rich, it is critical that the positive emotions dominate any negative ones that arise, Hill says. He was on to something. Today, research shows that positive, happier people are more likely to perform better at their jobs and are less likely to be unemployed. ---------- 12. THE BRAIN: ASSOCIATE WITH OTHER SMART PEOPLE AND LEARN FROM THEM. Our brain is a ‘transmitter and receiver of thought vibrations’ — it absorbs thoughts from other individuals surrounding us — making it even more important to associate with intelligent, creative, and positive individuals. Hill writes: ‘Every human brain is capable of picking up vibrations of thought which are being released by other brains ... The Creative Imagination is the ‘receiving set’ of the brain, which receives thoughts released by the brains of others.’ This principle is simply application of the Master Mind principle. It takes it one step further; rather than just surrounding yourself with people who are smarter and better, use the members of your group to find solutions to problems or brainstorm ideas. Hill calls this ‘blending of several minds into one,’ and suggests sitting down with a small group of people and diving deep into the problem at hand. ---------- 13. THE SIXTH SENSE: TRUST YOUR GUT. The final principle — the ‘sixth sense’ — occurs only after you’ve mastered the other 12 principles. You’ll experience a sort of mind-shift, Hill says: ‘Through the aid of the sixth sense, you will be warned of impending dangers in time to avoid them, and notified of opportunities in time to embrace them.’ While this principle isn’t the most straightforward - Hill admits it is generally not attained until age 40 - his basic claim is that your intuition will change. You’ll have achieved a level of wisdom that will allow you to start making smart financial and life decisions naturally. Although it takes a while to master the final step, you can still get a lot out of the other 12 principles, Hill says: ‘No matter who you are, or what may have been your purpose in reading this book, you can profit by it without understanding the principle described in this chapter. This is especially true if your major purpose is that of accumulation of money or other material things. The chapter on the sixth sense was included, because the book is designed for the purpose of presenting a complete philosophy by which individuals may unerringly guide themselves in attaining whatever they ask of life!!’ " - Kathleen Elkins

"Given the negativity bias of the brain, which evolved in the distant past when our survival depended more on being 'safe rather than sorry' and therefore jumping before asking questions, it is natural for us to picture the worst about the future. The unfortunate thing about this is after you have done all you can to prepare for the future this kind of negative idea-image focusing - for example worrying in competitions - actually impairs your performance! Knowing this therefore it is useful, in these situations, to not focus on what you don't want to happen but instead to focus on what good, positive things you want to happen, which - by decreasing your debilitating fear - increases their likelihood, making a positive self-fulfilling prophecy!" - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

"[Lead cheerfully:] The cheerful man [grateful that things are not worse] carries with him perpetually, in his presence and personality, an influence that acts upon others as summer warmth on the fields and forests. It wakes up and calls out the best that is in them. It makes them stronger, braver, and happier. Such a man makes a little spot of this world a lighter, brighter, warmer place for other people to live in. To meet him in the morning is to get inspiration which makes all the day's struggles and tasks easier. His hearty handshake puts a thrill of new vigor into your veins. After talking with him for a few minutes, you feel an exhilaration of spirits, a quickening of energy, a renewal of zest and interest in living, and are ready for any duty or service." - Orison Swett Marden
From his book, 'Cheerfulness as a Life Power', first published 1899.

"Life does not always get better just because you are the boss! The following joke is funny but for many small business owners it is also the truth.


The Australian Taxation Office suspected a fishing boat owner wasn't paying proper wages to his deckhand and sent an agent to investigate him.

ATO AUDITOR: 'I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them'.

Boat Owner: 'Well, there's Clarence, my deckhand, he's been with me for 3 years. I pay him $1,000 a week plus free room and board. Then there's the mentally challenged guy. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of Bundaberg rum and a dozen Crown Lagers every Saturday night so he can cope with life. He also gets to sleep with my wife occasionally'.

ATO AUDITOR: 'That's the guy I want to talk to - the mentally challenged one'.

Boat Owner: 'That'll be me! What'd you want to know?'

"[A story - with a message about the power of optimism and positivity in life and work:] 'Get Out Of The Shade' - One afternoon, a young man walked into [Andrew] Carnegie's office to interview him about his success. Carnegie could have told the young man about his journey from poverty to riches or about his wild dealings with John Rockefeller. But instead, Carnegie talked about something else. His optimism. Carnegie said the most important thing in his life was his 'ability to shed trouble and to laugh through life.' He said that seeing life through a lens of positivity was worth more to him than millions of dollars. 'Young people should know that it can be cultivated,' Carnegie said. 'The mind, like the body, can be moved from the shade into sunshine.' And it makes good business sense, too. By not getting weighed down by the negative, Carnegie could keep his focus on the positive, bounce back from failures faster, and see opportunities where other people didn't know they existed!!" - Alex Banayan

[Quote No.55747] Need Area: Work > Leadership
"[Self-talk and talking to others: in order to improve the way you talk to yourself, and the way others learn to talk to themselves, so it is more positive, supportive and rational - refer the value of skepticism and Rational Emotive Therapy - so you and they can be more productive, persistent and happy, they and] You need to remember the 3 P's: Permanence, pervasiveness and whether it’s personal. Pessimists tell themselves that bad events: --- 1. Will last a long time, or forever. ('I'll never get this done.') ---2. Are universal. ('You can't trust any of those people.') ---3. Are their own fault. ('I'm terrible at this.') Optimists look at setbacks in the exact opposite way: ---1. Bad things are temporary. ('That happens occasionally but it's no big deal.') ---2. Bad things have a specific cause and aren't universal. ('When the weather is better that won't be a problem.') ---3. It's not their fault. ('I'm good at this but today wasn't my lucky day.') When talking to yourself, be an optimist, not a pessimist. [Martin E.P. Seligman in his book, 'Learned Optimism: How to Change Your Mind and Your Life' states 'The defining characteristic of pessimists is that they tend to believe bad events will last a long time, will undermine everything they do, and are their own fault. The optimists, who are confronted with the same hard knocks of this world, think about misfortune in the opposite way. They tend to believe defeat is just a temporary setback, that its causes are confined to this one case. The optimists believe defeat is not their fault: Circumstances, bad luck, or other people brought it about. Such people are unfazed by defeat. Confronted by a bad situation, they perceive it as a challenge and try harder.'] ... And when good things happen, the situation reverses: --Pessimists think good things will be short-lived, are rare and random. --Optimists think good things will last forever, are universal and of their own doing. What's the ultimate result of this? Pessimists often quit. Life feels futile. And when life feels futile, you stop trying and frequently get depressed.

[Quote No.55776] Need Area: Work > Leadership
"[The key numbers that every business leader should be watching:-] ---1. Revenue. Increasing revenue indicates that customers want what we are selling! ---2. Profitability. Maintaining or increasing profits means that we are delivering products or services efficiently. Growing the top line is meaningless unless you are also growing the bottom line! ---3. Revenue per employee. This is important for companies who are heavily dependent on people to deliver services and indicates whether they have too few or too many employees, and gets people thinking about ways to use technology to increase efficiencies. ---4. 6 month sales pipeline. This tells me whether we are talking to enough potential customers to achieve our revenue, and if we need to sell and market more, it provides several months to address the problem so we don't have a short-fall of revenue. ---5. Customer satisfaction. There are many ways to measure this – from direct comments, customer surveys, what's said about your company on social media, to the amount of time customers are on hold when waiting for the phone to be answered. Obviously satisfied customers tell their friends and help us grow our business. ---6. Employee satisfaction. There are many ways to measure this – from numbers of employees who quit, their responses on employee or organisational surveys, to 'comments around the water cooler'. Again, satisfied and happy employees create a much better work environment and tell their friends who then will want to come work there. ---7. Aging receivables. This tells me how much money we are owed and identifies how much money I will need to borrow from the bank to cover my cash flow requirements." - Professor Jana Matthews
University of South Australia ANZ Chair in Business Growth. [http://www.businessinsider.com.au/run-simple-the-key-numbers-that-every-business-leader-should-be-watching-2015-8 ]

[Quote No.55836] Need Area: Work > Leadership
"We talk in coaching about 'winners' - kids, and I've had a lot of them, who just will not allow themselves or their team to lose. Coaches call that a will to win. I don't. I think that puts the emphasis in the wrong place. Everybody has a will to win. What's far more important is having the will to prepare to win [i.e. learning, practicing, planning, etc]." - Bobby Knight

[Quote No.55838] Need Area: Work > Leadership
"It is a trite but true observation that examples work more forcibly on the mind than precepts. And if this be just in what is odious and blameable, it is more strongly so in what is amiable and praiseworthy. Here emulation most effectually operates upon us, and inspires our imitation in an irresistible manner. A good man therefore is a standing lesson to all his acquaintance, and of far greater use in that narrow circle than a good book." - Henry Fielding
Quote from his novel 'Joseph Andrews', published 1742.

[Quote No.55926] Need Area: Work > Leadership
"The big shock: statistical analysis found that a child's level of self-control is every bit as powerful a predictor of her adult financial success and health (and criminal record, for that matter) as are social class, wealth of family of origin, or IQ. Willpower emerged as a completely independent force in life success - in fact, for financial success, self-control in childhood proved a stronger predictor than either IQ or social class of the family of origin! [Self-control and will-power can be increased by teaching a person the importance of controlling their attention onto what they want to do = focus, and off what they don't want to do = distraction.]" - Daniel Goleman
Quote from his book, 'Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence', published 2013.

[Quote No.55944] Need Area: Work > Leadership
"[Fear, force and fraud are not as effective in the long-term as persuasion with desire and informed choice:] I would rather try to persuade a man to go along, because once I have persuaded him he will stick. If I scare him, he will stay just as long as he is scared, and then he is gone." - Dwight D. Eisenhower
(1890 - 1969), US general and 34th president.

[Quote No.56068] Need Area: Work > Leadership
"Don't just compare yourself to the best, compare yourself to the average man and also to yourself when you started out. Compare yourself to the best so you have a goal of what to surpass, compare yourself to the average man so you gain confidence in your abilities, and compare yourself to where you were so you can appreciate how far you've come - and gauge how far you have to go to be the best and how long it will take." - Jarod Kintz
