In physics, positives attract negatives and vice versa, but in human relationships the opposite is true. Negative people attract only other negative people, while positive thinkers attract like-minded individuals. You will find that when you begin to achieve success more successes will follow. This is the law of harmonious attraction. When riches begin to come your way, you’ll be amazed how quickly they accumulate. Train your mind to visualize yourself acquiring a specific amount of wealth or achieving a certain goal — whatever you most desire. Then use self-suggestion to persuade your subconscious mind that you can achieve your goal, and put your plan into action. When you use the tools that you have at your disposal to prepare yourself for success and visualize yourself as having already reached your objective, you can achieve any reasonable goal that you set for yourself.

The most dangerous phrase in the language is “we’ve always done it this way.” ~Rear Admiral Grace Hopper
She was so right! How many times have you seen people continue to do something in a way that they could improve so much with some little changes?

Now, don’t overturn the apple cart all at once – consider the changes that you can make – then test the change. Document the change and the results. If, for instance, you’re in sales, and you only get your leads by cold calling – don’t stop, but go ahead and try sending a postcard to 20 people saying that someone recommended that you meet. Try it. Track it. See if it’s more productive.
What could the results do for you? What are you going to try? Success is only a few minor tweaks away!
“Don’t expect miracles without hard work.” Not sure who said it, but it’s so true.
I read biographies and writings from people that have had great success – guys like Steve Jobs, Mark Cuban, Ronald Reagan, and many others. Their stories would hardly be interesting without the adversity and hard work.
Too many people are ‘lottery minded’ these days. They think the only way they will get ahead is if they get “lucky” or a miracle occurs. They jump into everything that has a miracle ending promised but they give up before they ever achieve results. A little ‘sweat equity’ is much more powerful than wishful thinking. – JR
