I went through some options he could take to make money quick. A lot of the things I said to him made me really think about what I've learned so far about really achieving your goals.
More then anything else, you have to BELIEVE that what you dream of achieving is going to happen. Not that it could happen. Not that it might happen. You have to KNOW that it WILL happen.
I started reading learning about achieving your dreams and success techniques a couple years ago. When I first started learning about it, I thought it was so lame. I felt like it was all stupid principles that would never work.
How could telling myself in the mirror every night that I'm going to be a millionaire make me a millionaire?
Well, let me tell you what all these techniques are really about. They are designed to trick your mind. When you know for a fact you are going to pay off your house mortgage in the next 5 years, your brain does a funny thing. It finds a way to achieve this. It finds a way because you believe this dream. You're not going to let it not happen.
It's amazing what you can achieve when you put your mind to full use.
I just wanted to post this so you guys can start believing. Read some Stephen Covey or David J. Schwartz. Once you get in the right mind frame, there's no stopping you.
