The great law of accumulating wealth in your life is simple: Everything counts! Everything that you do, or fail to do, counts in some way. Once you have set a goal for yourself, everything you do either helps you or hurts you in achieving it. Nothing is neutral. The biggest mistake that people make is they think that something counts only if they decide that it counts, or that they are going to count it. But the rule is that if it doesn’t help, it hurts. If it is not adding to your efforts, it is probably taking away from them.
When you set a goal to become wealthy, you place yourself under a new set of rules, and everything from that day forward counts in some way. When you read a book, listen to an audio program, take an additional seminar or course to upgrade your moneymaking abilities, go to bed early and get up early—it all counts in your journey toward accumulating wealth. When you plan each day in advance and work on your most important tasks before you do anything else, it all counts. Every positive, helpful action you take is going towards helping you to achieve your goals.
Maintain this mindset and you will start to see good things in every setback or difficulty. Like Henry Ford said, “Failure is merely an opportunity to more intelligently begin again.”
Make a decision now to take positive action by joining us in Bordentown on April 23 for “Strictly Business: The Dale Carnegie Immersion Seminar.” This action-packed three-day seminar emphasizes the principles of success and shows you how to put them into action every day.
