When anyone tells you that something is impossible what is
your response? Not only your outward reaction, what are
your inner thoughts?

Do you accept it and go on thinking to yourself, "Yeah! It’s
probably too hard too…" or "They’re right. That could never
work." Or do you just passively go on with your existence
never to give it another thought?

Well listen. S T O P thinking that way. Before you achieve
anything that you think may be even a little difficult, you
must – repeat – YOU MUST own the belief that it is not only
possible, it is probable. Then, owning that belief, ask
yourself some very focused questions.


- What do I want?
- What is the first step I should take to be one step
closer to achieve what I am after?
- Who can clear up any lack of knowledge that I need to
achieve this?
- What is my plan to get from Point A to Point B?

The most important objective to achieve anything on this
planet (or out of this world) is to believe. Without belief
there is nothing.


Become what you focus on. Whether you want to or not you
will become what you concentrate your efforts on. If you
concentrate on achieving wealth, you will become aware of
opportunities to achieve that wealth.

If you allow yourself to become consumed with bad things
that happen to you, you will become a person that bad
things happen to.

You need to become just like the person you want to be
like. This requires reading and diving into the lives of
those who have already achieved what you are striving for.

You must become a filter for what you allow in and what you
push out. Do this by reading what you want to learn. Listen
to audio books that support your goals. Talk with people
who build up your ideas.

Just remember you will become what you want to achieve even
if others say it’s impossible.


Beware of the idiots. I have a friend who has a brilliant
outlook on life. He is an entrepreneur and has a lot of
great ideas. Not only are they great ideas they actually
make him money.

There are plenty of people who would look at him and his
ideas and tear down any effort he would make at trying to

Here’s the part you need to adopt and adapt to your way of

To the people who tear down or do not support his ideas
are automatically dismissed as idiots. Those who support
him and his ideas are always geniuses. That’s a great way
to win! Develop your genius tribe. Totally ignore and
dismiss the idiot pool.

Now you don’t have to be so raw about it calling people
idiots (although it may help). You can still apply the same
principle. Beware of the nay-sayers. Embrace the

Surround yourself with geniuses.

Few things will kill a million-dollar idea faster than
idiots telling you it can’t work.

Be You

The last sentence "Few things will kill a million-dollar
idea faster than an idiot telling you it can’t work." is SO

Another thing that will kill a million-dollar idea faster
than anything is not being yourself.

Being yourself is the most unique thing you can offer
anyone. Why would you want to rob yourself of the most
valuable asset you can offer?

Trying to be someone else is a nasty habit that is so
transparent it turns off everyone who sees it. Don’t do it.
No one likes a phony. But everyone loves those who love
being themselves.

People are attracted to those who are glad to be themselves
and are confident in who they are. These people understand
that they are valuable being the only person they can be.
Be yourself and don’t be ashamed of you.

Once you have accepted that you are valuable and are sure
in who you are, you will begin to notice in a very short
time that people will begin to be attracted to you. They
will want to be around you and unconsciously want what you
have got.

Use your YOU power. Be yourself and you will be on your way
to successful living.

Successful living isn’t easy. It’s simple but it isn’t
necessarily easy. Stay tuned throughout the year for more
valuable ideas and tools that will help you accomplish what
others would call “The Impossible”.

Until next time keep looking and living forward.
