How To Get What You Want

 By: Robert Hunt


Napolean Hill said "There is one quality that one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it." No truer words were spoken, but lets break it down a little more. I think most successful people would agree with the above statement. Those that have succeeded, by most standards in life, can probably identify with what Napolean Hill said. But what are some of the qualities successful people share that we can point to as a common thread? I've decided to focus on 5 of these traits. There are certain to be more but these tend to be the most commonly observed.

1. You get whatever you think about the most. Famous successful people from history bear this out. Roman Emperor, Marcus Aurelius said, "a man's life is dyed by the color of his thoughts,"' and the Buddha commented that, "All that a man is comes from his thoughts."' Whatever you think about most consistently and with purpose and emotion tends to expand"' discipline your mind to focus predominantly on what you desire in life.

2. An attitude of gratitude will take you a long way. Melodie Beattie said, "Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity.... It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow."' Be in awe of all the good you have already created in your life and the more you are grateful for that - the more that will flow freely into your life.

3. Take full responsibility for the emotional state that you choose to embrace each day.You choose your emotional state each and every day. Believe it or not, no one can make you feel anything you do not want to feel. You are the captain of your thoughts, so decide to embrace those emotions that propel you toward your stated goal.

4. There is never any scarcity of opportunity, but rather there is only scarcity of resolve to seize the opportunities that knock on our door every day. Scarcity does not exist unless we choose to embrace it"'therefore, it is better to never embrace scarcity only embrace the possibility for abundance.

5. Trust yourself to make the right decisions. By doing so, you trust in the very wisdom that created you. Dare to become a no limit person and abandon the idea of focusing on limitations. You already are complete, whole and perfect. Trust in the perfection of your life.
