Law of Success Lesson #5: Imagination

Filed under: Personal Development — Tags: , , , , — Shirland Carrington @ 12:33 am

Imagination is like Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities famous opening line “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair,…. ”  When we are reading the beginning we are trying to visualize the scene that he is describing so we may better get a grasp of where the story is going.  We automatically start thinking about the good times and the bad times in our lives.  When the good times flashes cross your mind you smile.  It is very difficult not to smile when you are thinking about good things.  The bad times take us to a place that we don’t like to be on a regular basis.  Our mood goes from a high to a low as we read this line.  Napoleon Hill uses this concept as it ties into initiative and leadership in his book Law of Success.

“You will never have a definite purpose in life, you will never have self-confidence, you will never have initiative and leadership unless you first create these qualities in your imagination and see yourself in possession of them.”  Imagination is the one thing in our lives that we have absolute control.  Think and Grow Rich stated that desire is the first step to riches.  Our thoughts determines our destiny.  When I was growing up in the 1980s I saw transformation in many people.  A drugs called “crack” was the main cause of these transformations.  I saw people that were productive citizen of the World turn into single focus organisms.  The focus became finding a way to get “high” again.

When you are focusing on getting “high” , how would you able to expand your imagination.  When your thoughts are on things that are not good for you, then it is easy to see your destiny.  Your destiny of self destruction is deeply embedded in your psyche.  When you flip it around and focus on something that is great for you, then you destiny of greatness is also written.  The choice is your….

Law of Success Lesson #4: Initiative and Leadership

Filed under: Personal Development,Self Empowerment — Tags: , , , — Shirland Carrington @ 11:57 am

“…Leadership is essential for the attainment of Success, and Initiative is as essential to success as a hub is essential to a wagon wheel.”  Many major accomplishments may be reached in your life, because of these two essential characteristics.  Napoleon Hill looked at these two keys to success separately but tied them together nicely to teach this lesson.  The old sayings that many of us heard as a child were “too many chiefs and  not enough Indians”  or “too many cooks spoil the broth”.  The first saying have a overabundance of leaders, while the latter had no leader in sight.  The obvious answer is that the right amount of leadership is needed in many organizations to achieve their goals.  The saying would have gone a lot differently if some of the chiefs became Indians and a lone cook stepped up as the head chef.  Leadership and initiative would have solved the dilemmas that they faced.  Napoleon Hill tied these two important concepts together in a big bundle for everyone to comprehend.

Initiative and leadership goes hand in hand.  A great philosopher once said that “Initiative is the pass-key that opens the door to opportunity.”   The major opponent to opening this door is procrastination.  Napoleon Hill believed that procrastination and indecision are twins.  Indecision is probably the worse of the these twins.  You must make the decision and follow through with it to the very end. A person with initiative can not be plagued with indecision.  A decision is defined as choosing a path and cutting off all other alternative pathways.  The ugly head of procrastination must be cut off if you are to succeed.  Procrastination may come in the form of spending extra time on Facebook or other Social Medias instead of doing things that will help you achieve success.   The act of getting ready to get ready never solves anything.  ” Remember that your only limitation is the one that you set up in your mind”

 

The leader will always see beyond the limitation that other people set for them.  The leader with an acorn and a piece of land might see a future totally different than a follower.  A follower might see a mighty Oak Tree while the leader would see a community with a big mighty Oak Tree,  families living around the tree and a Lake with an overabundance of fishes.  The leader with initiative will not listen to naysayers that tell him that the acorn is just a nut.  The leadership that he will have make him keep his eye on his vision no matter what other people say or do.  His or her ability to block out all negatives, even the negative self talk coming from within.  The end result of families living around the Oak Tree is all the motivation that they need.
