    So I attended a seminar last night regarding real estate foreclosures and tax liens on housing institutions and how you can leverage such things to turn lump sums of profits. The seminar had some interesting points to it, but to me, the most interesting points were the general sayings that the speaker had said, which had absolutely nothing to do with real estate.

    I completely agree with these things that I'm planning on putting down, so it doesn't hurt to consider these yourself. I figured I would share them with you.

    1. You create your own success. What this means is you can't be expecting other people to make your success story. Anyone that is successful, other than people who were born wealthy, always have to do things on their own. This is fine in my opinion, it makes you an independent person, and above all other things, it teaches you how to manage what you need to manage in order to be successful.

    2. When going into an opportunity that you feel will financially help you out, don't think like the normal "pay-check to pay-check" people would think. This type of thinking would be, how much is it going to cost? Really you never want to be thinking like that, because that just puts a stutter in your dreams. The real question you need to ask yourself regarding any type of venture is "How much will it make me". And believe it or not, that is how most wealthy people approach new opportunities.

    3. Tell yourself you're wealthy and that you're succesful. You might not feel that it's true, but a lot of wealthy people got to that point by engraving such things in their head. If you constantly are telling yourself that you're wealthy and succesful, you will eventually start believing it, and that's a great mindset to have. It makes you a lot more optimistic about opportunities.

    4. Surround yourself by people who are succesful. Some of you might tell me that this one is quite obvious. But a lot of people know this trick, but never apply it. If you hang out with a bunch of stoners, what do you think you're eventually going to be doing? Owning a business? More than likely not. Consider it like this. When you're around a lot of people who are either succesful or trying their hardest to reach that success, it will make you want to reach success so much more as well. Start surrounding yourself with people who want to be succesful.

    Overall, none of these tips will be of any use if you yourself do not have the drive to do what needs to be done in order to become succesful. I hope you guys liked these points, they are all mental points, yet these mental points can help you out a lot in your own success dreams.

    Great tips there JBMedia, thanks for sharing them with us, they will be helpful to anyone who applies them. Point 4 reminds me of the old phrase that goes along the lines of "if you sit in a barber shop long enough, you will get your hair cut". It's important to be aware of your environment, the people around you and the stimuli that you allow into your mind.

    This one keeps me driving forward.

    My little girl tells me everyday "daddy your a genius". Kids have a great way of giving you energy. I remember this all the time and know in my mind I am.. I have to prove her right. It inspires me to think differently and to not accept failure.

    i definitely like point no.2.

    that is absolutely true. many people have been conditioned that after their schools, they must
    find a job and settle down until they're old.

    if you think of it this way, you'll never be financially successful. you can find a job and work for
    people, but take it as a paid-to-learn opportunity.

    Same here. I like number two. Sometimes it's not all about money. But it's how you love your job and everything will be more than the paycheck itself for the job.

    It's really good advice, but sometimes it's really hard when you
    advertise your biz for hours a day and don't get any results.
    Oh well..I'll never give up though.

    Every thing he see ,he thinks he can do then how one can make a decision

    First thing would be to ask yourself what you enjoy doing bmk and what you are passionate about. Do you know what that is, or would you like some suggestions on how to find that out?

    I've sometimes felt like that myself rebecca16. However, try to look at successful people from the point of view of what you can learn from them and as a motivating factor in terms of what you too could achieve. Most successful people are willing to help and advise others to help them too become successful.

    I know many people including success and those still find the way to get success. That's interesting that those people "not yet" success can tell you many "theory" on how to get success, I mean it is real theory that we can find from the book, they have good knowledge. The main reason is they are weak in implementing and some of them fail to fail, without practice or try, we can never success

    1. Let go of the past. Act and apply in the present and shape up the future
    2. Utilize your failures as a guide towards success
    3. Do not try. Just do it.
    4. Make a list of your dreams. No matter how hard they might be to achieve, just sit down and write all your dreams down.
    5. Make a list of your goals and think how you can achieve them
    6. Use negative feedback and criticism to your advantage and better yourself
    7. If you want to be successful in someone else's game (if you have a boss), play by their rules or create your own game.
    8. Make a list of your values. What do you value most and build your success upon them
    9. Keep personal time separate from business time.
    10. Your success depends on your failures as well as your achievements.

    This is i like the most. It is just reflection of "being blessed i good one but sharing blessing to others is most important thing". So if you're a successful one try to help other so that they will be successful same as with you. Nice post.

    Do not step back from the job at hand when fear subsides in you. This is one of my favorite thought for success.
