Many people will reject the idea that they can make a $1,000,000 in 12 months. They consider it impossible, unlikely or perhaps a fantasy.
New ideas are often rejected and sometimes the originators persecuted. Take a look at this…
When scientist first suggested that the earth revolved around the earth and that the sun was at the centre of the solar system, there was immense surprise and consternation. The idea was thought as false; after all anyone could see the sun move across the sky and descend behind the hills. How could anyone suggest otherwise? Yet today the idea has finally carried conviction in the minds of all.
Robert H. Goddard ( 1882 – 1945) was a physicist credited with creating the world's first liquid-fueled rocket. Between 1926 and 1941 his team launched 34 rockets achieving an altitude of up to 2.6 km. Many of his works led to the development of the modern spaceflight. Yet in his days he was often ridiculed for his theories and received little public support.
Sigmund Freud’s ideas of conscious and subconscious mind were first rejected by the scientific community of Europe. At the time it was difficult to entertain the thought. Yet today a big portion of the self help industry is based on this theory of the power of the subconscious mind.
The bottom line: you can do much more than you think. Don’t reject ideas or thoughts before you test them.

The hardest part in making a million dollars is believing that you can do it; training your mind to see the impossible and looking for ways to bring your desires into fruition. Your thoughts are powerful and act as magnet attracting that which you think about most of the time. You can’t delegate your thinking; you can’t pay someone else to do it. You must do it consistently and continuously; without any form of doubt.
