First, feel good by acknowledging what you have already accomplished: goals you have reached, people you have helped.
Then remember that making a difference starts from within. To succeed, it’s essential to develop and ongoing success mindset. As your vibration stays stronger longer, it naturally translates into action. Then you manifest success.
So what gets in the way? It’s not about comparing yourself to others, which is a common showstopper. Yes, learn and be inspired by others; just remember that you are unique. It’s about pursuing your own self-actualizing path.
Also, it’s not about being perfect, getting those imaginary ducks in a row. Waiting for the perfect time – another common obstacle – is just as self-defeating.
THREE KEYS TO MAKING A DIFFERENCE
1. Have a vision. Intend for your picture of how your individual talents and skills can help others make a better world to come into view. Then develop a mission to carry your own personal crusade to better yourself and others.
“I use my ______[talents/skills] to help people __________.”
2. Use strategies. These approaches will then actualize your dreams and goals that emerge from your vision. For example, develop your own business, or give 110% at your job to attract greater possibilities.
You can also help solve people’s problems. If you want to make a living from helping others, choose those who are willing and able to pay for your products/services.
To succeed, find the best practices in your chosen area for success.
3. Have a daily success routine. Successful people regulate their lives so they are “fit for success.”
Practices we and others use include:
eating and sleeping well
reading positive books; listening to success audios
associating with upbeat, successful people
meditating and affirming expansive ideas
As a note, the above takes self-discipline, to which you want to dedicate yourself for your own success and self-actualization.
One of our taglines is that “we help people step up and make a difference.” You must be willing to “step up” to make a difference.
This may even include getting so frustrated that you no longer can tolerate staying where you are.
Find a way to step up today (the best time to do it).
Stay with it. Never, ever give up; simply learn and grow from the challenges. Then you will be proud of your legacy: “I made a difference.”
We asked a group we spoke to if they’d like more money. One lady replied, “Sure everyone wants more money, BUT…” This common response shows how you can get caught in the “but,” so to speak.
What does money represent? More freedom: that means greater support of your family, more fun, more trips and dining, more contribution.
In Napoleon Hill’s The Law of Success in 16 Lessons, he emphasized having a definite chief aim in order to succeed.
However, Hill notes that if you just think, “My definite purpose in life is to be of as much service to the world as possible and earn a good living,” you will fall short of what you could achieve.
Let us explain. Having an overall purpose, as we do (we “help to make the world a more creative, collaborative and prosperous place”), can be a good starting point. It’s a starting, not ending, point.
To succeed, you need to use your skills and talents to achieve something SPECIFIC related to your overall purpose.
FROM OPRAH WINFREY TO MARTHA STEWART
Whether you observe the Dalai Lama or Warren Buffet, Oprah or Martha Stewart, they all have something in common that creates their success. They consistently follow their dreams and have an intense focus.
To create a great life, you need a definite intent, along with daily focus and persistence. Napoleon Hill cites many examples of people who had a definite chief aim, with a burning desire to achieve it:
Your chief aim may not be directly about money. Many teachers and artists may have a modest income but are happy.
However, if you want to be able to have more freedom, you need to know how to create and manifest, which includes money, and what it represents (more freedom, happiness, fun, contribution).
If you say aloud, “I want money,” or “I enjoy money,” how do you feel?
If money can create a better life, why are many of us uncomfortable claiming it and focusing on it? It’s because of the negative programming we’ve received about money. As a result, we end up unconsciously focusing on not having enough.
We encourage you to become more aware of money issues, so you can have the resources you need to live a larger life and bigger dream.
Here’s an important step: just become more aware of your thoughts and feelings around money, which can lead you to getting clear.
EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) also helps in clearing blocks, so you can create and focus on your definite chief aim, as Napoleon Hill advises.[contentbox width=”400″ borderwidth=”1″ borderstyle=”dotted” bordercolor=”CC2908″ dropshadow=”0″ backgroundcolor=”F5F5F5″ radius=”0″]GETTING CLEAR
So how do you get unstuck and create a more extraordinary life?
First, get clear on exactly on what you want. Make it believable and exciting.
If you are focusing on a monthly income goal, pick a number that you can believe, an amount that also gets you excited. Write down what you will do with this added income.
Next, keep focusing on your goal and post in on a dream board and dream book.[/contentbox]
Dream often, visualizing your life as if the dream has already been fulfilled. Use all your senses to ‘feel’ the result.
And finally, surround yourself with people who support your dreams and goals.
As you get clearer and focus on your definite chief aim, your vibration rises. You find opportunities (and they find you). Sometimes things come to you “out of the blue,” as you create a more and more extraordinary life.
Dream today. Focus and get that intense desire to create a better life — for yourself, for others, and for the world. It’s a win-win-win when you follow your dreams

If so, we invite you to learn about our upcoming Heart and Soul of Success telecourse. It’s part of our Holistic Coaching and EFT Telecourcourse Certification.
Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich, surveyed about 16,000 people about success.
Here’s what he found: only about 5% of people were successful, meaning they enjoyed their work, were prosperous and had an ongoing feeling of fulfillment. They were creators.
Creators don’t view themselves as victims, and act accordingly — as persons who craft their own lives.
Here are 5 key steps to create success so you can become a conscious creator:[list style=”arrowred”]
Your “why” can be a big picture, a larger vision of your life. For us, we envision creating a more caring, prosperous and collaborative world. Without a dream, how can you have your dream come true, as the song goes. Writing it down will cement it and speed up the process. Be as specific as you can when you write it down. Most people lack this fundamental part of being a creator, so this should be a top priority.
Napoleon Hill cites successful people as those who focus daily on want they want to achieve — a project, an income, a business, better health or relationships. Be sure when you “think” about the goal, you feel good. In other words, you expect it to happen, even if you don’t know how (which is often the case).
If your aim is too big, shrink it so it’s achievable. And when you think about your aim you get excited. You know it’s going to happen.
Think about this aim as often as possible.
Use your mind to seek the resources you need. If an unexpected expense came up, are you reacting or responding? Just being pro-active will often help you be ready for the unexpected as much as you can.
In short, take charge of your life. If it is to be, it’s up to me. Remember you are a creator, not a victim.
In our lives, for many years we were looking for a social network of like-minded people (a dream). Even though we sometimes felt alone in the wilderness, we followed our intent to find an uplifting group (chief aim), trusting it would somehow happen.
When a group of people turned out to not be the right fit for us, we keep on seeking (proactive). We appreciated the group, even if it wasn’t what we were looking for (learn from setbacks). And we persisted.
Now we have found a wonderful network of people, one that supports people in accomplishing their dreams and goals. This group has actually exceeded our expectations.[contentbox width=”400″ borderwidth=”1″ borderstyle=”dotted” bordercolor=”940C1E” dropshadow=”0″ backgroundcolor=”F5F5F5″ radius=”2″]
You can create success and experience conscious creation.
We outlined 5 key to-do’s in this article on becoming a creator. Here are a few don’t’s:
* don’t be average
* don’t compare yourself to others – be yourself
* don’t live our others’ dreams; follow your own
* don’t settle – you do deserve better
* don’t give up on having a greater life, ever
You are so worth it. Here’s to you, fellow creator![/contentbox]
What is prosperity? The word probably conjures images of people with big wads of cash posing in front of huge mansions and expensive cars.
The word “prosperity” also gets tangled up with many political and religious usages. Most people define prosperity as wealth, success and good fortune — but in reality, it’s much more than that… as we explain in this 2 minute video…[arrow style=”15.png” alignment=”center”]Be sure your speakers are on
How you answer this question can literally determine your life. The question, the Big Kahuna, is, “Do I trust the universe?”
By the way, we are defining the universe as everything, all that is.
Also, this is an ongoing question until you know – or feel – the answer.
Then it is no longer a question that needs answering, although exploring its depths is very rewarding in itself. In effect, you will be living the answer.
While you want to fulfill your part in the grand scheme, everything already exists in a timeless, eternal state.
There is being fully in the “now” moment, being unconditionally present. And yet, paradoxically, there is the all-important urge to become more, to actualize your potential.
This takes us to the subject at hand. To let the universe support you, you need a game plan. You need to find your purpose, a reason for being, a reason for becoming more…
To get with the cosmic program for now, to become more, you find your life purpose. How? By developing your gifts and skills that help yourself and the world.
If you don’t come to a definite purpose and plan, a “why,” then you are at risk of becoming what Napoleon Hill calls “a drifter.”
In other words, Continue reading

Have you tried the law of attraction and found the results less than you had hoped for? It can turn out that the law of attraction works against you, not for you. To turn things around, consider these 5 common mistakes many people make, often without even knowing it.
1. Too big a goal. If you goals are too big, you probably are setting yourself up for failure. Your goals need to be attainable and believable, even if you don’t know how you can reach them.
Here are examples of common oversized goals. If you want to earn a million dollars, say, and you currently make only a fraction of that. Or you want your “perfect” mate and your past relationship history is poor.
Solution: Start small. Shrink your goal to where it is believable and still inspirational. Aspire to earn 5-10% more a month. Improve your social skills and talk to friendly people regularly.
2. Dwelling on the negative. “Things never go well with my employer.” “My project just doesn’t work.” Focusing on what doesn’t work is a sure-fire way to attract what you don’t want, such as negative employers, failed ideas, etc.
Solution: Focus on what you DO want. Recognize when you are off track and course-correct asap. “I’m finding ways to get along with my employer.” “My project is improving.”
3. Being inconsistent. If your goal is to manifest a successful career, are your thoughts and actions consistently supporting that goal? In other words is your inner and outer world, for the most part, on track with what you want?
Solution: Study success material daily. Read and listen to uplifting material about the law of attraction, success and personal/spiritual development. Then you can start each day with a positive focus. And it’s easier to go throughout the day consistently doing and being what you do want.
Developing good habits creates new pathways in your brain, a positive brain groove that deepens over time. It gives new meaning to “getting in the groove.”
4. No action. A dream without taking action is just wishful thinking. Too many people rely on referrals, a check in the mail or their angels taking care of them. Although these are wonderful possibilities, they don’t substitute for taking action. Relying on things outside of yourself is too passive and can be part of becoming a victim, waiting for things to happen.
Solution: Summon the courage to take action to realize your dreams and goals. Stand up and be counted. You and your dreams are worth it, regardless of what anyone might say. Feel the fear and do it anyway.
5. Lack of knowledge. Sometimes we know just enough to get into trouble. We may know some of the manifestation pieces, but are still missing key components.
Solution: Be an ardent student of manifestation and success material. Find support: mastermind groups, coaches and training. Connect with others successful people to help your dreams come true.
As Thoreau once said, “If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”
Today’s a new day with wonderful possibilities. Look for new opportunities while avoiding the 5 traps described above.
Once you fall into one (which is common), set about getting on the right track as soon as you can. Forgive yourself and keep striving to live the life you truly want.
