Our minds are a wonderful resource of knowledge packed with information from our lives experiences.
Although we have this wonderful source of knowledge, we're consciously limited to considering a certain number of different pieces of information at any one time. So, if we want to be effective then we must direct our thoughts.
Imagine your mind is a dimly lit library containing everything you have ever thought, seen, heard, tested, smell or felt. Now imagine your conscious attention is like a torch which can illuminate a very small section of the dimly lit library at any one time.
Since you do not know how to consciously recall all this information at once, you need to be selective with what you concentrate on and trust your unconscious mind to supply the resources you need from your library.
Most people never achieve the success they desire because they are scattered, flashing their torch from one thing to the next.
To be successful you must concentrate and focus. This means directing your torch towards your ultimate goals.
Einstein discovered the theory of relativity. Alexander the Great conquered what was then his known world and beyond...
They were all wildly successful at what they did and achieved their place in history through passion and intense concentration.
Note: Make my success secret - series 1 to 7 your close pal as long as you sleep and wake up. Introduce them one at a time. Start by forming some good habits like getting up a little earlier and focussing on one of your goals.
If you find yourself not achieving what you want in life then go over these principles and take an honest look at yourself. Which ones are you not properly implementing?
