« Whoops Is Your Marketing Or Customer Service Broken? | Main | The Power Of The Damaging Admission »

The only reason this 'key' is a secret is because most people do not want to put their success or failure on themselves. The power of the mind is phenomenal. We can do anything we set our minds to do, but good and bad; positive and negative.

Look at Mark Twain, his birth and death coincided with Hailey's Comet. While he was not in control of his birth, he always believed his death would takes place when the comet passed again. He is quoted as saying, "I came in with Halley's Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it. It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don't go out with Halley's Comet. The Almighty has said, no doubt: 'Now here are these two unaccountable freaks; they came in together, they must go out together.'"

Could he have lived longer? Possibly. But what he believed, what he thought, came to pass.

So yeah, I do believe we are who we want to be.

Nice story about Mark Twain Heather which I hadn't heard before.

The mind is an incredible thing and I suspect that even the most enlightened only use a fraction of its potential power.

When you listen to Earl Nightingale, you can understand why The Strangest Secret became such a huge success.

Thanks, Paul. Hadn't heard that deep voice for quite a while. Writing goals, sowing positive thoughts, and identifying one's self as successful can never be rehearsed too often. It works best when it becomes as automatic as breathing. Until then, we'd better do our practicing, as Mr. Nightingale suggests!

You are obviously a fan of Earl Nightingale.

I remember Dan Kennedy recommending The Strangest Secret but I never heard it before.

I haven't heard "Lead The Field" either but it's been on my "must get sometime" list from Nightingale Conant.
