Many people believe a man’s fate is predetermined by some providential law. In fact, many are of the view that successful people bear a charmed life hence their ability to accomplish so much.

This consciousness possesses the ability to lull one into inaction. Simply put, it is fatal to success. If you feel something is wrong with your destiny, remember you can alter it and change the course of events in our life.

The fact is you really cannot take that as an excuse not to impact your world and attain an enviable height.

The fact that you are disadvantaged by some unpleasant facts of life doesn’t stop you from setting goals and designing strategies don’t stop you from applying success principles and taking charge of your life.

By the way who told you Richard Branson cried the day he was born and you didn’t? Who told you that you learned to crawl, walk and talk and Bill Gates didn’t.

In case you don’t know, the only reason you are not successful is that you are unwilling to do that which successful people do. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos still remains the richest person in the world today because you have not decided to occupy that position.

Seriously, nothing stops you from becoming a multi-millionaire or a billionaire; nothing stops you from becoming your country’s leader or changing the world.

It has been proven over and over again that greatness is not a special treaty designed for a Caucasian, a Negroe or a Mongolian but for the man or woman who reaches out for it.

It is designed for the individual who discovers his talent and exercises his abilities. It is for those who make a decision and move into action! It belongs to those who recognize a human need and reach out to meet that need. It is the exclusive privilege of a person who chose to win.

The great reggae legend Peter Tosh, in a line in one of his songs, said, “You can get it if you really want.” Your problem is you think you want money but you don’t really want it.

If you really want something, you don’t wait for it you go for it. Put in a poetic way, you crave for it with intensity. Here is the truth: you are satisfied with where you are if you are not you would have long made concerted efforts to move away from there.

The basic tools of early men were made of stones, bones, and club. The reason man is not making use of those stuff today is that at a point he decided to improve on them.

He was able to modify his environment to fit his need by developing better devices because he was not satisfied with those tools.

When the famous Astronaut Neil Armstrong, step foot on the moon in 1969, he made it crystal clear to us all that the feat was nothing but just one small step for man.

As a Wiseman, Armstrong understood that if he could get to the moon and come back, anyone can reach for the stars if he/she reaches that decision and set his or her mind to it.

Therefore, to start understanding men such as Bill Gates money-making secret, you must accustom yourself to the fact that Gates and his friend Panel Allen used the same one head you have to come up with the idea of Microsoft and no luck, god or force did that for them.

You must also understand that the heights attained by those successful people you pray to be like, is nothing compared to the one you will attain if you decide to use your time to think, set goals, draft out plans and design strategies.

Bill Gates is famous today and many times richer than you are not because he is a programmer, but because he programmed himself for success. Understanding this a b c will help you in no small measure to attain your goal in life.

You have become more susceptible to poverty because you do the wrong thing, nothing, or everything at the same time. The Question You Must Ask Yourself “What are the things successful people don’t do that I do?”

if you can lock yourself up in your room to ask yourself this simple question, as you ponder on it, you will acquire the heart of wisdom and know why some people are more equal than the others.

You will, in fact, come to the realization that successful people don’t do the following things listed below.

1. Sleep and yawn into the morning

2. Discuss people

3. Tighten their fist

4. Let what people will think or say stop them from making decisions

5. Sets a goal and wait till tomorrow

6. Give up

7. Target two goalposts

If you evaluate your life and actions, you will see that you do most of these things that set limits on people. Successful people don’t sleep and yawn into the morning because they know the night time is the best time to think and draft out plans.

They don’t discuss people because they know great minds discuss ideas, not people. It is difficult if not impossible to see a person who made his or her money in a genuine way clenching is fist.

In fact, a rich friend of mine told me, the reason he does not clench his fist is that a clenched fist cannot give and cannot receive. I have noticed that successful people don’t allow what people will think or say stop them from doing that which they set out to do.

They do things with their ears close. One habit associated with successful people is impatient I asked one of my rich clients why he was so impatient, he said he hates to wait because today is the tomorrow that indolent men wait for.

Whenever you come across a highly successful man or woman remind yourself that he or she is a poor person who refused to quit. The fact is, successful people, succeed because giving up is not in their dictionary.

And they don’t target to goalposts at the same time because they know it is impossible to score a goal that way.

If you wish to attain an enviable height in life, promise yourself this very minutes you will stop doing those things successful people don’t do. .

To Become a Self-Made Millionaire do These 4 Things

Success Advice


Would you like to make a million dollars in a year from now? If your answer is “yes,” as I am sure it is, then do this one thing. Simply raise the money in your mind account to a million dollar. You know what; I have just unveiled one of the greatest money-making secrets to you.

Do you know that if a king disguises himself as a madman and mounts a podium the first word that comes out of his mouth is enough to make men and women of means and education trample on one another in order to take a seat at the front row?

Yes, they will pay him attention because his words most reveal who he is. In fact, before long, you will see everyone bowing in courtesy. Here is the truth: What you are reveals the moment you open your mouth.

That is why the most circulated book in human history the holy bible stated, “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” When you see a tree that could be used to carve a canoe, you will know at once.

There is no rag in the world that can successfully conceal the identity of a king because the word of a king is also a king. That is why a true Leader is not difficult to identify.

No matter how many diamond stones used to design the clothes some people put on, the moment they mount the podium and open their mouths to speak, you will see everyone dozing in their sit. Even if you are paid to listen, you still can’t help but sleep a little.

What does this mean? This means that success begins from within a person! If the word that comes out of your mouth is worth nothing to people, know that the distance between you and success is still millions of light years away because this shows that you are worth nothing in your mind account.

Remember, your thought becomes your word; your word becomes your action, your action becomes your reality. Can’t you see that success begins from within a person? What exactly am I trying to say?

What I am trying to say is that it is exceedingly improbable to have a millionaire dollars in your bank account when you don’t have it in your mind account unless you broke into a bank.

What counts more in life is who you are in the inside not what you have in the outside. One of the reasons fraudsters and thieves easily run out of their ill-gotten money is that they are as poor as a beggar in the world of their mind.

An individual that gets rich by gambling or through hereditary is not qualified to bear the title “rich man or woman” Why? You may want to ask. Simply because a problem can come at any time to compel him or her to withdraw and squander the money in his or her bank account.

But nothing in the world can temper with the money in our minds account. Robert G Allen explains it this way, “The wealthy person cannot lose his wealth. His wealth is infinitely portable. For it resides in his head. There lies his only security.”

It is what you are in the inside that reflects the outside. Even if you are gifted with a million dollars, if you are worth nothing in the world of your mind before long you will find yourself begging for money.

Helen Keller knew this that was why she said, “What I am looking for is not out there, it is within Me.” Yes, before you talk of getting rich you must first work on your mind so that it produces thoughts worth millions of dollars.

5 Things to do to enrich your mind

1. Change your outlook

To do this you must move away from the crowd because the position the people views the world from does not reflect its true image. There say it cannot be done because it appears impossible from that very angle.

Remember a lie repeatedly told appears like a fact. The picture painted on your mind is the pebble in your shoes weighing you down. Simply put, it is that which chains down your takeoff zeal. It is worth nothing that is why you have nothing.

If you move away from the crowd, you will have a better view of the world. In short, you will see the better part of it and grow rich and healthy thoughts that can translate into an awesome reality for you.

2. Read books on the subject of success

One of the ways in which to enrich your mind is to stir up thoughts of possibilities on it by constantly reading “self-development books" on the subject of success. By so doing, you are bringing a vital success ingredient into your character.

The Greek philosopher Epictetus stated: “Books are the training weights of the mind.” Research finds that 85% of rich people read two or more education, career-related, or self-improvement books per month and it works greatly for them.

A good book possesses the ability to broaden your mind and stir up thoughts of possibilities on it. Remember, ideas are nothing but thoughts. Of course, you and I know that idea rules the world.

3. Hang out with progressive minds

One of the reasons you have not attain an enviable height is that you don’t attempt great things. It has become almost impossible for you to have high desires let alone attempt great things because you surround yourself with people who believe God must come before something works.

These people create doubts in your mind. Remember, self-distrust is the number cause of failure. In order to build a rich and healthy mind, you must do away with these kinds of people. In short, associate with people who think in a progressive way.

They will remove your doubts, ignite your spirit and of course, you will see further.

4. Scan your beliefs

It is impossible to attract to the mind the kind of thoughts that translate to a wonderful reality when we hold an infectious belief. Most of the things we are told carry a virus that is why it is important for us to scan our beliefs every time.

Remember, everyone is the expression of what he or she believes. Therefore, you must scan thoroughly your beliefs and delete the ones that are not in alignment with success.

In sum, you must try as much as possible to enrich your mind with healthy thoughts because that is where it all begins.

Overcoming Procrastination to Achieving Your Dream

Success Advice

On May 5, 1961, the freedom 7 spacecraft blasted off from Florida, U.S. A. and American astronaut Alan Bartlett Shepard Jr. became the first American and the second person to travel to space.

Even the dumbest imbecile in the most remote village on earth knows that to travel to space and come back to earth is no small feat. Alan Shepard was celebrated greatly until his life span ran out in death, but not like the first man to orbit the earth, Yuri Gagarin.

Alan Sheppard would have become the first human in space because he prepared just as the young Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. He conquered one of the things [fear] know to set limits on people just as Gagarin conquered it.

The spacecraft to take him there was ready; In fact, everything was ready but the same enemy [procrastination] that stops you to become that which you want to be in life, stopped him from becoming the first human in space.

Dear esteemed reader, I envy you because you have a great talent. I admire you greatly because you don’t have to pay a dime before you can have high desires and dream big dreams.

I consider you lucky because you are endowed with the reservoirs of abilities and geniuses. Why do you prefer to hope and wish? Why are you quick to draft out plans but slow to execute them? You have what it takes to make a difference what are you waiting for?

Long ago, you said that you wanted to become a movie star, how many auditions have you attended. You said you wanted to become a music star, since you had this in mind, how many songs have you recorded and how many record labels have you visited?

Last year you said you wanted to lose weight but it appears you have gained more weight, what are you doing to achieve your weight loss goal!

Many people, who started up a business venture since you had in mind to become an entrepreneur are now successful entrepreneurs why are you still complaining about the lack of money.

In short, how many business seminars have you attended and how many books and articles have you read on the subject of starting up a successful business venture.

Another year has come! Remember, it is madness to expect this year to be a great year for you when you keep acting the same way. This year will only be a great year for you if stop to look at the scorching sun or thunderstorm and make a move!

What stops you from pursuing your dream please can I know what you are afraid of? Begin today don’t be scared of anything, the worst that can happen to you is to fail and even if that happens so long as you don’t quit you are not defeated.

In fact, it has been proven over and over again that the lesson we learn from defeat can help us go beyond the limit we set for ourselves. The other day I overheard someone telling his friend to wait for his turn; I hope that is not what you are waiting for?

If success is by turn, do you think you will ever be rich? In case you don’t know they are more than seven billion people on earth presently. And if you think waiting is going to make the hill you intend to climb smaller, or shorten the journey you plan to embark on sorry, you can’t be more wrong.

Also, remember someday is not a day of the week. Nothing Can Stop You Only You Can do that As of December 5, 1960, the day fixed for Shepard trip to space, no human had visited space or orbited the earth.

This would have been the greatest opportunity for him to become the first human in space. Unfortunately, his trip was postponed to mid-January 1961; then again to March 6, 1961. As if that was not enough, it was postponed again to April 25, 1961; then to May 2, 1961, and finally May 5, 1961.

Meanwhile, on April 12, 1961, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first person in space and the first to orbit the earth. Until Alan Shepard death on July 21, 1998, he regretted this greatly.

If he had taken action by protesting the unnecessary shift in date, of course, he would have become the first human in space. Any wonder a Wiseman said, “Delay always injures those that are prepared.”Remember, the saddest word to say is,“I wish I had known.”

Many people didn’t know that tomorrow is not another day but today. Those who wait for tomorrow to come, to sow their seed will have to wait forever because tomorrow is today.

Emulate the Eagle

The eagle does not wait for a favorable wind before it takes off to the sky because it knows it might never come. That is why it is always up there in the sky soaring.

Those you see succeeding are people who don’t wait for anyone or anything before they pursue their dreams in life.

The greatest favor you can do for yourself is to ignore the hour, height and storm and get on that track, spread your wings and soar. This is the greatest secret behind the eagle’s success.

In the words of a great inventor Benjamin Franklin, “You may delay but time will not.” Time waits for no one, in fact, it is nobody‘s friend.

If you want to sow a seed, today is the right time. Don’t be cowed; don’t let the spelling confuse you; today is the tomorrow you are waiting for.

One of the differences between those who succeed and those who don’t is that the former sees tomorrow as their today, why the later thinks tomorrow really comes and waits foolishly for it.

What to do If you have a cushion in your house that is making it hard for you to get up and pursue your dream, my advice for you is to set it on fire or donate it to someone. If your TV set is what is holding you back take it away from your sight.

If your friends are responsible for this shift in date, then your number one resolution this New Year should be, running away from them. In fact, learn how to choose the right friend.

If it is your relationship that prevents you from showing the world, what you can do there is no better time but now to walk out of that relationship. Remember, history does not record how many times we kiss or make love to our partner but our impact.

Thomas Edison is remembered for the incandescent electric bulb and other great inventions he introduced to the world and not for the number of wine he drank during his lifetime. Move away from your comfort zone to make things happen.

I highly recommend the book below for you, use it to conquer procrastination forever and achieve your dream.




I wish you a resounding success in your pursuits.
