The starting point of all achievement is DESIRE.

Every man is what he is, because of the DOMI­NATING THOUGHTS which he permits to occupy his mind.

Both success and failure are largely the results of habit!

The five key takeaways from Think and Grow Rich.

If you fill your mind with FEAR, doubt, and unbelief in your ability to connect with and use the forces of Infinite Intelligence, the law of auto-suggestion will take this spirit of unbelief and use it as a pattern by which your subconscious mind will translate it into its physical equivalent.

Mind control is the result of self-discipline and habit. You either control your mind or it controls you. There is no hallway compromise.

There is one weakness in people for which there is no remedy. It is the universal weakness of LACK OF AMBITION!

Fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire.

You have a brain and mind of your own. Use it, and make your own decision.

Top 10 lessons from Think and Grow Rich book.

Desire is the catalyst for every achievement. Remember this at all times. Just as a small fire produces little heat, a modest desire also produces small results.

When you experience failure, take it as a sign that your plans are flawed, rewrite them, and then set out again for your desired objective.

The future is in your hands. Your environment is something you can direct, influence, and control. Your life can be whatever you want it to be.

Focus your attention on a specific objective and watch how the environment moves aside to allow you to pass.

The human mind has yielded more gold than the land itself.

We won’t accept something we don’t comprehend.

To succeed in this new world, you must embody the pioneering spirit of the past, whose aspirations gave civilization everything it is worth. This is the spirit that gives you and me the chance to grow as individuals and promote our skills.

Between wishing for something and being prepared to receive it, there is a difference. Nobody is prepared for anything until they have faith that they can get it. Belief, not mere hope or wish, must be the attitude. Belief requires openness of mind.

Maybe as we move through this age, we’ll discover that the “other self” is stronger than the physical self we perceive when we look in the mirror.

Before you can ever win a reward, you must have confidence in yourself.

Action steps from Think and Grow Rich.

The path to success is the path of constant learning.

Pleasure comes from doing, not just having.

A man who is well-educated does not necessarily possess a wealth of general or specialized knowledge. A man who has improved his mental faculties to the point that he may legally obtain anything he wants or its equivalent is said to be educated.

Every obstacle, setback, and heartache carries the potential for an even bigger gain.

The cheapest goods on earth are opinions. Everyone is ready to bestow their opinions on anyone who will accept them. You won’t be successful in any endeavor if you let “opinions” affect your decisions.

I will put an end to my anger, envy, jealousy, self-centeredness, and cynicism by growing in my love for all people since I understand that having a bad attitude toward others will never help me succeed. Since I believe in them and in myself, I will make other people believe in me.

By deciding not to care what other people think, do, or say, you can put your foot on the neck of the fear of criticism.

A person who has sincerely loved cannot ever completely lose. Love is irrational and fickle. Its nature is transient and ephemeral. It appears when it pleases and vanishes suddenly. Embrace it, enjoy it while it lasts, and don’t worry about it going away. The concern will never make it appear again.

If you don’t defeat yourself, you will be defeated by yourself.

LET THE WORLD KNOW WHAT YOU WANT TO DO, BUT DO IT FIRST. The phrase “actions, not words, count most” would be equivalent to this.

Keep in mind that everyone who succeeds in life through horrible hardships before they “arrive” has a difficult beginning. The catastrophe that serves as the turning point in the lives of successful people often allows them to discover their “other selves.”

Some people spend their entire lives doing the same thing because they fail to widen their perspective.

Keep in mind that the attorney who best prepares his case will win, not the one with the most legal knowledge.

You are a “quitter” if you give up before achieving your objective. A winner never gives up, and a loser never wins. Take this phrase out, write it in letters an inch high on a piece of paper, and post it where you will see it every evening before you go to bed and every morning before you leave for work.

Every man is who he is as a result of the dominant thoughts he allows to dominate his head.

Perseverance cannot be replaced. The individual who adopts persistence as his mantra realizes that “Old Man Failure” eventually gets weary and departs. Persistence cannot overcome failure.

The main cause of both success and failure is habit.

Never will the moment be “exactly right.” Better tools will be discovered as you proceed, so start from where you are and work with the tools you have available.

Understanding is a strength. It is not at all like that! Only potential power exists in knowledge. Only when and if it is organized into clear action plans and directed toward a clear goal does it acquire strength.

You can be sure that nothing will be under your control if you are unable to control your own thoughts.

Thank you for your time.
