7 Amazing Lessons From Robert Collier’s Book: THE SECRET OF AGES

Published

on

Robert Collier(1885 -1950), is one of my favorite self-help authors who mainly wrote about faith and greatness. Robert has written incredible books such as Prayer Works and Riches Within Your Rich.

Two weeks ago, I shared 13 Stunning Quotes from his book: The Secret of Ages. Here, I will share Seven Amazing Lessons I learned from this life-changing book

  1. There is A Power in this Universe Which Is Always Ready to Help

Realize that there is a Higher Power in the universe willing to help you when in difficult situations. It won’t let you down if you demand its help. However, remember to never doubt or question it while asking for help. Instead, believe that it has the intelligence and power to do whatever you want.

Learn how to connect with the Power, and it will fulfill your desires because it has unlimited resources, and nothing can hold it back.

  1. There is A Power Within You

There is a power within you, which if properly harnessed and comprehended, can lift you to great heights. It can make you one of the most powerful men in the world if you learn how to use it.

‘When you begin to realize that the power to do anything, to be anything, to have anything, is within yourself, then and only then will you take your place in the world.’ – Robert Collier, Secret of Ages.

  1. You Will Never Succeed if You Don’t Believe You’ll Succeed

If you want to succeed you must believe that you will succeed. If you don’t believe in your success, you will fail because this belief will demotivate you, kill your dreams, and prevent you from working towards success.

  1. See The Things You Want as Already Yours

Believe that you have everything you want, and realize that things will come to you when you need them. For this reason, trust that all your desires are coming to fruition, and never worry or complain when you lack anything because everything you want is already given to you.

  1. 5 Steps to Achieving Personal Efficiency
  • Pinpoint what you want.
  • Evaluate the things you will have to do to get what you want.
  • Plan ahead
  • Do one thing at a time
  • Once you start, never Stop.
  1. Being Young is a Mental State

Getting and looking old occurs when you expect to get old because you can be active and light-hearted today as you were 25 years ago if you realize your youthfulness.

Your body always takes the form of your mental state because it’s a slave to your mind. Therefore, always believe that you are young and full of energy, and you will appear young because your body will strive to match your mental state.

  1. Fear is the Primary Cause of all Diseases

You often succumb to fear when you imagine having a certain disease. This fear leads to sickness because the human-body will strive to match your fearful thoughts by altering the heart rate, secretions, and other bodily functions essential for a healthy body.

6 Entrepreneurial Lessons From Millionaire Fastlane By Demarco

Published

on

M.J Demarco’s, Millionaire Fastlane provides you with the best methods for becoming wealthy within a short period. Demarco believes taking a job for the rest of your life is the slowest roadmap to making millions because he trusts that millions are quickly built through inventions and owning businesses.

He believes you can be a millionaire while still young and he shows you how to do so. His teachings are reliable since he uses mathematical formulas to support them. You have to read the book if you are an aspiring millionaire.

Here are my six primary takeaways from the book

  1. The Traditional Way of Getting Rich is a Slow Method

Since we were young we were advised to get rich the traditional way. Teachers and parents told us to get good grades, then get a job and minimize our expenses. M.J Demarco agrees that you can get rich using this method, but the sad thing is that you’ll be rich when you are 65 years old. As he points it out in the book, ‘Yes Sir, get a job, work 50 years, live frugally, invest in the stock market, your day of freedom will arrive at age 70.’

  1. Be Ready to Take Shitty Jobs If You Want To Concentrate on Building Businesses

When M.J Demarco decided to be an entrepreneur, he had to work in low-paying jobs for him to earn a living because most of his businesses failed. Besides Demarco, many people who become rich through entrepreneurship often have a rough start because, in the early stages of the journey, most of their businesses fail, and for this reason, they always have to take high school drop-out jobs for them to pay their bills. The good thing about these jobs is that they give you enough time to work on your business/project.

  1. Wealth is A Process Not An Event

When we see sportsmen or web developers making million dollar deals, we often focus on the event and forget the process. We think they are lucky because we don’t take time to research what they did to reach their current position. We don’t realize that these folks couldn’t have gotten the million-dollar deals if it is was not for the years of hard work, sleepless nights, failure, anxiety, and stress.

  1. The Three Road Maps to Wealth

The Sidewalk Roadmap – Sidewalkers often spend whatever they have on the trendiest gadget, and improving their social image. For this reason, they never attain true wealth.

The Slowlane Roadmap – Slowlawners are employees who work for 50 hours a week, and expect to gain financial freedom at retirement.

The Fastlane Roadmap – Fastlaners are businessmen and innovators. They often have a slow start but end up being wealthy within a few years.

  1. Wealth Demands Accountability

Never allow other people to invest money on your behalf if you want to be wealthy because people will con you, and you won’t receive the financial returns you expected. You must always take responsibility and invest the money yourself.

With this in mind, never let your close friend or relative manage your business because they won’t do it the way you could have done it. Businesses that succeed are often managed by their owners/founders.

  1. Impact Millions And Make Millions

Most millionaires are folks who impact millions of people. These people create things that many people need. For example, musicians make millions because millions of people need their songs. Also, some authors become millionaires because many people need their books. Therefore, if you want to be a millionaire, you must create something that’s needed by lots of people.

9 Sensational Lessons from The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma

Published

on

Robin Sharma’s, book, ‘The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari,’ is one of the most empowering books of all time. For this reason, I believe all dreamers must read it because it will encourage them to follow their dreams and believe they will come true.

The book primarily teaches how to build a life that guarantees long-lasting happiness, and fulfillment. It enlightens you that focusing on building your inner life is more important than building your outer life.

Read the book whenever you get a chance, and your mindset will shift after learning the following lessons.

  1. Enjoy The Little Things of Life

You don’t need too many material possessions for you to enjoy life. In the book, Sharma talks about Julian Mantle, a successful lawyer who sold his material possessions when he discovered that he could enjoy life by meditating on the beauty of the little things of life such as a spider’s web and flowers.

  1. There Is No Good or Bad Experience

There are no bad or good experiences because everything happens for your good. What you call bad experiences usually offer lessons that enable you to move towards self-mastery. Therefore, celebrate all experiences, and remember that most folks have grown immensely from bad experiences.

  1. The Secret to a Happy and Meaningful Life

The happiest and the most fulfilled people are those who do what they love. You must do what you love for you to live a happy and meaningful life because focusing on what you love directs abundance into your life.

‘The secret of happiness is finding what you love and then direct all your energy towards doing it.’ – Robert Sharma

  1. Fatigue is a mental creation

Fatigue is just a mental creation because you have unlimited energy within you. You only get tired when you do what you hate. People who do what they love don’t get tired easily because their passion gives them lots of energy.

To prove that fatigue is a mental creation, Robin Sharma provides an example of a guy who feels tired at work but feels energised when a friend asks him to accompany him to a ball game.

  1. How To Create Positive Pressure That Will Make You Work Hard Towards Your Goals

You must learn to create positive pressure because it helps you work harder towards your goal. Robin Sharma teaches that you create positive pressure when you make your goals public because you will not want to look like a failure.

  1. Your Outer Life Improves if You Build Your Inner World

Working on factors such as discipline and optimism enables you to achieve whatever you want. Besides this, building your inner world through the cultivation of faith, a strong spirit, and self-mastery makes you unstoppable in your outer world. That being said, you must focus on building a strong character because doing so will enable you to easily succeed in your outer world.

  1. Practice Silence and Solitude

Practising silence and solute boosts creativity because it enables you to tap into your inner intelligence. Moreover, silence and solitude also enables you to attain inner peace, sleep better, and access the unlimited energy within you

  1. Advantages of Taking a Walk in Nature

Sharma teaches that spending time in nature enables you to align with your inner intelligence and peace hence improving your personal power. Also, he reveals that we should walk in nature because nature makes us energetic, and restores our body to its natural state.

  1. The Purpose of Life is to Give

Nature proves that the purpose of life is to give because everything in nature is always giving. Flowers give you fragrance, plants give you oxygen, animal droppings make the soil fertile, and the soil feeds the world. We, therefore fulfil the universe’s purpose by making giving a part of our everyday lives. We must help the old, the poor, and anybody who needs our help, because giving makes our days holier and enables us to move to higher dimensions.

Hope you learned a thing or two from the above lessons. You are free to add more lessons from Robin Sharma’s book if you’ve read it.
