After 29 years and 1,200 interviews with some of the world’s most successful people, I’ve reached some fascinating conclusions. World-class success is a rare, yet largely predictable. When I say this on TV, radio and print interviews, most people don’t believe it, yet there’s a mountain of research to prove these principles.

8 thoughts on “The Making of a Million Dollar Mind”
Steve – to piggyback on what Colin Christopher said:
In his book “Greatness”, Don Yaeger says this: “The five people you spend the most time with in life are going to decide just how successful you are.”
The “Million Dollar Mind” set is a fantastic resource. Combine that with association with the right people, and that’s an unbeatable combination.
The “right” thoughts don’t gurantee success, however the wrong ones can gurantee failure.
Take the right ones! Take the right ones!
I walk every morning here at the project and for a long time I felt that it is also good to hear nature and have quiet. But what I found was that it is WAY better for me to be listening to personal development cd’s on my mp3 for the greater percentage of the time. Why? Well as it turns out the info I am absorbing is more powerful than just my own thoughts–because sometimes during tough periods my self-talk is not that uplifting! Now–at the end of my walk I like to meditate and pray at our waterfall so I still believe a balance of both is important but for sure feel the benefits and see the results of the cd’s. I also agree with Colin that there may be some underlying beliefs that need some more serious work so it behooves us all to take stock of our individual situations and if needed enlist the help of professionals or whatever it takes to do a good housecleaning! Hypnosis, counseling etc. should be part of our plan if we get stuck.
I agree with your analysis and importance of self talk and I would like to contribute a second tool.
I think the people that get the program need to take a second step to identify and systematically remove the factors in their environment that are manipulating them to bad beliefs.
For example, the person that wants more success not only has to create the belief of success (through self talk) but they must also eliminate the outer talk from friends/family/coworkers/media that tell them they can’t do it.
Limiting beliefs always have a source. Identifying and eliminating these sources will allow them to create success beliefs that much faster.
When listening to world class self talk, also objectively examine your personal beliefs that conflict with the world class self talk. Ask yourself why you believe differently. Who do you know and associate with that believes differently? Are these people enjoying the success you desire? If not, what’s the reason you share their beliefs?
