Earl Nightingale’s suggestion, from The Strangest Secret, to achieve massive success is this.
Write down your BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) on an index card. On the other side, write down this (from the Sermon on the Mount*):
Ask, and it shall be given you.
Seek and ye shall find.
Knock and it shall be opened unto ye.
For everyone that asketh receiveth
And he that seeketh, findeth
And to him that knocketh, it shall be opened.
Review this card every day for 30 days – preferably first thing in the morning and last thing at night. Your sub-conscious mind will work on ways in which you can move forward and achieve your goal.
You become what you think about.
* The actual words come from Matthew 7:7-8
