If you want to have a virtual empire that you can run from anywhere in the world, you’ve got to have the right mindset from the start.

In this Exec Summary, I give you the juice to the famous book “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill.


To achieve your goals you must have a burning desire.


Have you ever been at the point where you’re low on money and all the sudden the terror kicks in?  The pain is so sharp, it causes you to become really stressed.  So stressed in fact, that you’re scrap all your plans and reprioritize your life!  You must get to that state. Lots of us wish to achieve our goals, but what separates those who do and those who don’t is a BURNING DESIRE.


The basis of every achievement is goal setting and planning.


Every success story begins with people who are clear on what they want.  If you have a goal that’s floating in some undetermined time in the future, you’ll commit half-heartedly to it. Get specific, write the goal down with a date.

Next you must create a plan to achieve your goal. This plan must outline the precise steps you must take to achieve the goal.  Don’t over plan! Once you’ve got your plan, get cracking! Don’t waste time wondering if the plan is right, just get going!  Read your plan twice daily, once in the morning and once at night.


Have an unwavering faith in yourself.


Have an unwavering faith in yourself that you will achieve your goals.  You can only achieve your goals when you have confidence in yourself.  Once you start to see a little success, the confidence will grow and grow.  Having faith in ourselves has an enormous influence on our self-image.


Use auto-suggestion to influence your behavior.


To use auto-suggestion effectively depends on your capacity CONCENTRATE on a given DESIRE until that desire becomes a BURNING OBSESSION.  Read ALOUD twice daily the written statement of your DESIRE FOR MONEY.  SEE AND FEEL already in possession of the money! You must see the physical appearance of the money.  DEMAND and EXPECT your money!  Your subconscious mind will create the plans you need. Be on the alert for these plans, when they appear put them into ACTION IMMEDIATELY! When the plans appear they will ‘flash’ into your mind as an ‘inspiration’.


Knowledge is power.


Take the time to learn what you need to achieve your goals.  If you want to be successful you don’t need to stuff your head with a bunch of facts.  It’s much more important to acquire the right experiences and knowledge for the particular goal you want to achieve.  Know who you can ask for the knowledge.  Surround yourself with a network of experts who share the specialized knowledge you are seeking, it’s much easier to do this then learn it yourself.


Imagination is where you turn your dreams into reality.


Every success starts with an idea.  Einstein said “Imagination is everything.  It is the preview to life’s coming attractions”.  You must visualize and focus on your desire.  There’s creative imagination and synthetic imagination.  Creative is when you can come up with completely new things, like artists and writers.  Synthetic is arranging old ideas into new ideas, for example when Sony creating the walkman by further developing the dictaphone into the walkman.


Be decisive and determined.


Make a firm decision and stick to it.  Don’t let others make your decision for you, and don’t procrastinate.  The analysis of multi-millionaires revealed that they were used to making split-second decisions and once they made them, they stood firmly behind them.


Only the persistent will succeed.


Keep working towards your goals no matter what obstacles get in your way. Rise above the challenges that are thrown at you and keep focusing on your goal.  Never lost sight of your goals.


Power of a mastermind.


The bigger the goal, the more complex the planning; the more complex the planning, the more difficult the goal’s execution, the more difficult the execution, the more dependent the brains behind the project.  Surround yourself with like minded people who are working towards a common goal, this will create synergy which is an unstoppable force.
