7 Incredible Lessons From Maximum Achievement By Brian Tracy

Published

on

Brian Tracy’s Maximum Achievement is a marvelous book which provides extensive information on how to live a happier, healthier, and prosperous life. The book makes readers positive and self-confident, and it teaches how to tap your inner power and become successful in your career. You must read the book if you want to believe in the achievement of Great things. I just finished reading it and here are seven incredible lessons from it.

  1. You Must Be Clear About What You Want

Brian Tracy reveals that all the successful folks he met knew the things they wanted and worked towards them. For this reason, he believes that you can’t accomplish success if you don’t picturize how your success will look like because knowing what you want awakens the power within you hence making it easier for you to achieve success.

This idea is true because knowing what you want enables you to make decisions, and take actions that align with your goals, hence making it easy for you to achieve them.

  1. How To Experience Peace of Mind

Brian Tracy teaches that you can achieve peace of mind when you free yourself from negative energy. You free yourself by learning how to transcend negative emotions of envy, worry, doubt, anger, fear, and resentment, and avoiding negative films, people and situations.

  1. Life Happens in Accordance With What You Expect

‘Whatever you expect with confidence becomes your own self-fulfilling prophecy.’ – Brian Tracy

A large percentage of successful folks often expect positive things. For instance, they expect life to be good, and for this reason, they are rarely frustrated because most of the time, life is always good for them.  Therefore, people often get what they expect, and not what they want because expectation is a powerful force.

  1. Four Elements of Visualization that Determine the Rate at Which You Will Attract What You Want.

Frequency – Individuals who attract their desires often visualize them continuously.

Vividness – Your must clearly picture every detail of your ideal future.

Intensity – To quickly attract your ideal life, you must accompany your mental pictures with positive emotions.

Duration – According to Brian Tracy, ‘The longer you visualize your ideal future, the quicker you attract it.’

  1. Believe That Nothing Can Stop You

All great men believed they can overcome any hardship, and this belief awakened a power within them that helped them reach great levels of success. Believing that nothing can stop you enables you to achieve great things because a strong belief breeds faith that pushes you in the direction of your dreams.

  1. Think About What You Could Have Done if you Feared Nothing

If you take time to think about what you could have accomplished if you were never afraid, you will realize that fear has blocked you from taking risks, exploiting opportunities, and living your life’s purpose. That being said, you could have accomplished many things if you could have completely overcome the fear of failure, the fear of making mistakes, and the fear of what other people will think about you.

  1. Four Main Keys to Personal Achievement
  • Accept yourself – Appreciate your successes, special qualities, and talents.
  • Accept complete responsibility for your life – Accept that you are responsible for where you are today. Don’t blame people for your current life circumstances, and avoid making excuses.
  • Set big goals – Big goals increase your self-esteem and self-image.
  • Be physically fit and healthy – taking care of your physical health boosts self-love and self-respect.

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.
