In the first paragraph, hills talks about the power of thoughts, He made his readers to understand that thinking is more important to success than any other feature, including money, skill, education, or specific or general knowledge about something. Anyone that “thinks” he can accomplish something is already a step forward toward achieving that thing more than the man that has the capacity to achieve that thing. But thinking in itself is a too general term. Hill made us to understand that thinking is a mixture of initiative, faith, willingness to win, and resilience and that is what most people that want success failed to understand.
Hill also talked about the power of failure, he suggested that Failure should also be taken into consideration, because it is a necessary part of the learning process, but it gets us closer to the end goal only if we take it the right way and decide to persist no matter the hurdles, no matter what it is that might show up on our journey I remember a time in my life that all that was in my mind was to succeed academically and whenever I did poorly in a subject I do feel very bad about myself but he totally suggest that for us to be always ahead in the game of success we need to meet some disappointment on the way in terms of failures.
Thoughts are powerful things, when mixed with purpose, persistence and burning desire can translation into riches or other material objects. When this desire, or impulse of thought, comes into mind, inform of thoughts or mere imagination it is important that you act on it, when you act on it, well I mean take the right step to translate that thoughts into reality you are sure to succeed. When a man really desires a thing so badly, that he is willing to stake his entire future on a single turn of the wheel in order to get it, he is sure to win. For example looking at those men claiming the title world strongest men and watching what some of them do will get you asking is this really real? Well when one is truly ready for a thing, its puts in its appearance. What a different story people would have to tell if only they would adopt a definite purpose. Hill also shared that Opportunity has a sly habit of slipping in by the back door, and often comes disguised in the form of misfortune or temporary defeat which is an unarguable fact. This is why so many fail to recognise opportunity especially in this part of the world. Many people who made great fortune today had thing to start with, maybe you could say that Jeff Bazons was already worth $10 billion dollars in 1997 when amazon came to the spotlight but one thing you fail to understand is that amazon.com didn’t start that big, what most of these guys had was the capacity to know what they wanted, and the determination to stand by that desire until they realised it. It needed initiative, faith and will to win and they gave it their very best. Before success comes to most people, they are sure to meet with much temporary defeat, and perhaps some failure. For most successful people, their greatest success came, just one step before the point at which defeat had overtaken them. Failure is a trickster with a keen sense of irony and cunning and success is a man who has failed several times and decided to try again and won.
Every time a prospect tried to bow them out, without buying, they saw a child standing there in the old mill, her big eyes glaring in defiance, and they said to themselves, ‘I’ve gotta make this sale’. But, It was blessing in disguise. Keep on the faith, no matter how hard the going may be friends. Riches come only to those who work hard and long and never give up in their crafts. Failure comes to those who indifferently allow themselves to become failure conscious and permit me to say that being failure conscious is as dangerous as being purposely in life; it keeps you in the mirage of defeat and self pity. Another weakness found in altogether too many people is the habit of measuring everything, and everyone, by their own impressions, beliefs and perspectives. Desire is one of principles of success. Either is filled with a form of universal power which adapts itself to the nature of the thoughts we hold in our minds. It will urge us to translate into physical reality of poverty if that is what your thoughts are just as quickly as it will influence us to act upon thoughts of riches so think positive, make positive confession, every day when you wake up, get close to your mirror and say to yourself it’s a new day to begin something new and I know am on top of my game. I know today I will make profits in my business, relationships, marriage etc.
