Week One – Familiar Routines

Familiar Routines and Habits

Familiar routines seem to be the basis for many successful people in business. Tom Corley, in his book titled “Change Your Habits, Change Your Life” says, “Most self-made millionaires don’t end up rich accidentally, Corley’s research finds. They make plans. His studies found that eighty percent of the wealthy are “obsessed with pursuing goals,” he writes. They refer to both daily and long-term goals regularly.

Og Mandino in his book The Greatest Salesman in the World admonishes us to replace our bad habits with good as that is the only pathway to success. Further, Charles F. Haanel in the Master Key System states in paragraph 2 of Part 1, “Mind is creative, and conditions, environment and all experiences in life are the result of our habitual or predominant mental attitude.”

It really is simple, thoughts become the things we think about inhabit both our mind, and the subconscious helps them materialize into our world. Henry Ford thought during his every waking and sleeping hour on his first car, how it was to be made and what problems he had to overcome to Familiar Routines - Elon Musk - SpaceXachieve his goal of bringing an inexpensive vehicle to the masses. Elon Musk via his companies Tesla and SpaceX is totally obsessed with, and generating products that push the edge of technology with each coming day.

So, we have contemporary evidence that Thinkers are Creators. Just as was posted on this blog earlier, Warren Buffett adheres to his familiar routines of reading, sitting and thinking to generate his ideas to advance his investments and accomplishments.

So, when you start thinking that Napoleon Hill, Emerson. Mandino or Haanel are a bit fruity, just look at what Steve Jobs, Warren Buffett or Elon Musk are doing today and silence your subby’s disbelief! The Secret is no secret, there are just many disbelievers who fail to put forth the hard mental effort to develop good daily Routines or “Habits” to replace their bad ones and thus move nearer to their goals while avoiding the habit of failure.

Week – 4 – Wrestling with Clarity, Precision & Control Only To Discover Principles

As you all are traveling down the same road, some of us (maybe many) have a hard time really getting clarity on what we want. In my case, the blockage consists of so many options to choose from and telling myself that I am only diversifying my “portfolio” of activities to ensure maximum stability in my income and growth. Subby is calling my B.S.!

Subby says that’s not what you are doing, you don’t have the courage to commit to one or two things, to learn the skills and see success as you constantly reiterate. He doesn’t make these judgements per se but, the results speak volumes and remove the cloaking that I so cleverly put in place to disguise my fear of commitment and potential of failure.

Again to Haanel and the understanding that (#4-22) “The Universal cannot express through you as long as you are busy with your plans, your own purposes; quiet the senses, seek inspiration, focus the mental activity on the within, dwell in the consciousness of your unity with Omnipotence. “Still water runs deep;” contemplate the multitudinous opportunities to which you have spiritual access by the Omnipresence of power.   ‘

I have been not shy or or weak, rather I have been arrogant to think that all my planning and strategizing can circumvent the order which is universal to all life. The bible says something similar in Matthew 6 25 – 26…

25 For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?

26 Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? 27“And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life.

As Og points out in the first scroll, “Nature already has supplied me with knowledge and instinct far greater than any beast in the forest and the value of experience is overrated”. So, I need not depend on gaining more book learning or experience as Og Mandino goes on to say, “Furthermore, experience is comparable to fashion; an action that proved successful today is unworkable and impractical tomorrow.”

Who in the Information Technology industry such as I could disagree. Everyday, new innovation make the experience of today obsolete and of little value. He goes on to say the “Only principles endure..”.

This course, these mentors and these documents and texts contain principles and habits worth of learning well and daily execution. I promise to learn these principles until they are the automatic responses of my mind, body and soul. It is through these principles that my thought becomes activated into matter, productivity, industriousness and a lifelong partnership with the universal to the betterment of all who understand and partake of its wisdom.

I Always Keep My Promises and Build a Foundation Upon These Principles!
