The Strangest Secret by Earl Nightingale, this is one of the best audio’s on success. Below I will discuss a few key points from this talk so that it can awaken your mind to a higher degree.
“Success Is The Progressive Realisation Of A Worthy Ideal”
Identify a worthy ideal for you to pursue. Use your imagination to start a venture that will help humanity to advance to a higher level. Let your venture be congruent with your values, your passions, and your interests. Find something that you love to do and go and make that ideal a reality.
“The Opposite Of Courage In Our Society Is Not Cowardice – It Is Conformity”
The majority of people are just following the crowd without thinking why they do what they do. This notion of pursuing a career rather than designing a life has become ingrained into most people. You do not have to live like the ‘normal’ people, you do not have to follow the crowd and just resign yourself to living a lie. Be courageous and design the life that you want to live.
“People With Goals Succeed Because They Know Where They Are Going.”
If you want to become successful in all aspects of your life you must set goals for yourself to achieve. You need to have a clear sense of direction of where you are going and how you are going to get there. The majority of people do not set goals and that is why they become confined to a life of mediocrity. Write out your most important goals with plans and deadlines that you want to achieve this year and take action to achieve them.
“As Ye Sow, So Shall Ye Reap”
You shall reap what you sow. So many people make the assumption that riches will just come about by sitting around and wishing; action is what brings about success, you will get what you work for. If you do not put in the work then do not expect to become successful. Work for what you want, hard work and dedication is what will bring success to you. What you plant and work on day after day is what will harvest for you.
“We Become What We Think About”
What you think about you bring about into your life, your thoughts are creating your reality and they are shaping you into the person that you want to be. If you constantly think scarcity and lack-of then that is what will materialize for you in your outer world, whereas, if you think abundance and prosperity then that is what will materialize in your outer world. Your thoughts are immensely powerful, they are defining who you become, so think highly of yourself as a huge success, and see the grandest version of yourself in your minds eye, and keep on reaffirming that vision of yourself backed up by action in the direction of your definite purpose, and you will become that.
These are just a few key points from this excellent talk. There are many others, listen to this talk often so that the wisdom gets ingrained into your mind and it helps you to attain all that you seek.
Believe in yourself and go boldly in the direction of your dreams.
