Brian Tracy - Part 3....


  • Everything we are or ever will become will come as a result of the content of our mind.
  • Everything that we do to improve the quality of our thinking must, by extension, improve the quality of our lives. 
The Law of Relaxation:
The harder we don't try, the faster our minds change and we become the people that we want to become. The more we just relax and confidently believe and expect that the things that we want will come into our life, when we are ready for them, they will rapidly come in. The harder we work and push, the less success we have.

Process of changing our thoughts from positive to negative:
All of our performance is linked to our self concept. Keep very clearly in your mind the person you would like to be and the goals you would like to accomplish. 

Avoid clinging to the status quo, not letting go of the past, hardening your attitude, being inflexible and being rigid in your thinking. These things prohibit growth.

  • It takes 10-21 days to develop new thinking patterns and habits of thought.
  • The first hour of your day is the golden opportunity to reprogram your thoughts. Spend the first 20-30 mins of the day reading something motivational or inspirational. (Don't watch TV or listen to the radio). Program your mind with information consistent with where you want the rest of your day to go. (Another good idea is to listen to educational, motivational or inspirational CD's in your car). 
21 day positive mental attitude diet:

  • Change one characteristic at a time (don't try to change everything all at once).
  • Any goal that you can hold in your mind, on a continuing basis, you can have. Any thought that you can hold in your mind or imagination will begin to come into your reality. The only question is, do you have the tenacity, the self discipline, the intensity of purpose to keep your mind focused on what you want to accomplish or are you going to allow your mind to drift into thinking what you fear?
  • If we associate on an ongoing basis with negative, pessimistic people who are going nowhere with their lives, that alone is enough to assure that we go nowhere with our own lives. If you want to become a high achiever you must make a conscious effort to form new associations with positive men and women. 
  • Live in the now, 1 day at a time, focusing on where you want to go and who you want to be today, this minute. Don't worry about the future, it will take care of itself.
  • All causation is mental. Everything that ever happens to you will be determined by the content of your conscious mind. And since the only thing in the world in which you have complete control is your thoughts, if you keep just your thoughts consistent with what you want to be , have and do, that alone is enough to enable you to control your destiny.

I can say that I truly believe these things with all my heart. My experience over the past year proves that these theories are correct, and that they do work. It is no coincidence that when I started approaching life in this way and made a conscious effort to change my way of thinking, I started achieving my goals and moving forward in my life at a rapid rate. Even if you are skeptical, I dare you to give it a go. You have absolutely nothing to lose. If it doesn't work you just keep living your life the same way. If it does work, however, you have the potential to change your life in ways you could never imagine. Doesn't that make it worth a try?
