Secrets of the Rich – Part 6

Posted on Sep 12 2008

Ask Yourself-

As you consider the success you desire, you need to affirm its possibilities and develop the self-confidence necessary to attain
the goals. Learn to do things well. “If you know how to do one thing well, you can do everything,” wrote the philosopher Gurdjieff.

Are you ready for success?

  • Is what you are doing now helping you to achieve your goals?
  • Do you weigh the consequences before making a decision?
  • Is this the best use of your time?
  • Do you cooperate with everyone and help cultivate their best potentials?
  • Are you warm and sincere?
  • Do you have the courage to succeed?
  • Do you have the self-discipline necessary to achieve your goals?
  • Do you have a realistic sense of self-worth?
  • Do you give more than you take?
  • Do you have the courage to fail, and then pick up and try again?
  • Can you assume responsibility without blaming others if things go wrong?
  • Are you strong?
  • Can you be sympathetic to life and its sufferings?
  • Can you say no?
  • Will you follow your convictions and plans to achieve?
  • Do you sincerely want to achieve the goals you have chosen?

Taking Responsibility-

“The price of greatness is responsibility,” wrote Winston Churchill. Are you willing to take the responsibility once you attain the success you desire?

“The deepest personal defeat suffered by human beings is constituted by the difference between what one was capable of becoming and what one has in fact become,” wrote Ashley Montague. And the greatest tragedy is to become less than your full potential, using less than the abilities you have to work with.

Are you waiting for something to happen? Maybe you’re waiting for a job offer, or a promotion. Perhaps you’re waiting until you get good enough at a craft or skill. Or are you waiting for the inspiration of creativity to strike your life?

It is up to you to take the actions and be responsible for their consequences. “Our responsibility: every opportunity, an obligation; every possession, a duty,” wrote John D. Rockefeller, Jr.

Inspire yourself. Read books that will spurn you to action; talk to people who have the vitality you admire. How would you like to lead your life? And make the changes necessary to be like that. “There is nothing permanent except change,” wrote Heraclitus.

What changes do you want to make? What are you waiting for?
