|1. Create a vision.|
Create a vision of who you want to be and then live into that picture as if it were already true.
You create a vision you don't wait until you receive a vision
In other words you can make it up.
2. Tell a true lie.
Make up a lie about how great you are to make yourself sound unbelievably wonderful.
Think of some stories about who you'd like to be. Without a picture of your highest self, you
can't live in to that self.
3. Leave your comfort zone.
Our society encourages us to seek comfort. And yet only challenge will test our skills and
make us better. Only challenge and the self motivation to engage the challenge will really
transform us. And every challenge we face creates a more skillful self. So it's up to you to
constantly look for challenges to motivate yourself and it's up to you to notice when you're
buried alive in a comfort zone, then break free and fly away.
4. Find your key.
Napoleon Hill in His book: "The Master Key to Riches" says: "The great master key to riches
is nothing more or less than the self discipline necessary to help you take full and complete
position of your own mind. Remember it is profoundly significant that the only thing over
which you have complete control is your own mental attitude." Maybe the hill book won't be
your own key, but I promise you that you'll find your own instruction book if you keep
looking. You'll find it when you ready to seek. It's out there, waiting for you.
5. Plan your work.
Many of us think we are too depressed right now to start on a new course of self creation or
we're too upset, but napoleon hill says that's the perfect time to learn life's most important
rule. There is one unbeatable rule for the mastery of sorrows and disappointments he says.
And that's the transmutation of those emotional frustrations through "definitely planned
work." It's a rule which has no equal. Once we get to picture of who we want to be definitely
planned work is the path to self motivation. Definitely planned work contains the energy of
purpose. One hour of planning saves three hours of execution. It is impossible to work
passionately with a sense of purpose and feel depressed at the same time. Successfully
planned work will motivate you to do more and more than you ever thought possible.
