“The starting point of all achievement is desire. The finishing point is that brand of knowledge which leads to understanding – understanding of self, understanding of others, understanding of the laws of nature, recognition and understanding of happiness.This sort of understanding comes in its fullness only through familiarity with, and use of the principle of the sixth sense”. This quotation from Think and Grow Rich neatly summarises the ultimate objective of self-development. All of the principles outlined in this book are designed to lead me to an understanding and use of the sixth sense, and this will not be possible unless I master the 12 preceding principles, namely: Desire – a deep seated purpose and a burning desire to achieve it; Faith – a totally unshakeable belief that I can achieve it; Self-talk – designed to broadcast my purpose and to summon aid for its achievement; Specialized Knowledge – the specific knowledge I need to accomplish it, especially by attracting the money I need; Imagination – how to use it to achieve my purpose; Planning for its achievement; Decision – making definite decisions and sticking to them; Persistence – in pursuit of my purpose; Mastermind – using the help afforded by a group of advisors dedicated to advancing the business interests of all its members and contributing to the advancement of fellow members; Sex Transmutation – transmuting and using the power of sex energy in a non-physical way to accomplish my goals; Subconscious Mind – how to send messages to the subconscious mind to summon help for the attainment of my purpose; The Brain – how to use it to the fullest extent possible in pursuit of my purpose.

 

My life up till I encountered ‘Success in Ten Steps’, could be could be summarized by the phrase ‘tilting at windmills’. Don Quijote with his servant Pancho, in the story by the Spanish writer, Cervantes, went on a crusade through Spain in defence of what he considered to be virtuous causes and very often ended up landing on his back. I have been in two network marketing companies over a period of 25 years; the first lasting 7 years and the last one 19 years. They were hopeless causes because they were not 5 pillar companies and used unsustainable recruiting methods: approach family and friends, advertise and cold- call prospects, purchase leads and get prospects to opportunity meetings. For most of those 25 years, I did not have a heart-felt purpose and when I had worked out one, did not use self-talk to sustain it. In any event, because of the nature of the companies and their recruiting models, they were totally unsuitable.

 

This is an opportune time to do a bit of self-examination and to plan for the year ahead. I know that having discovered my purpose and using my self-talk, I will achieve my purpose by using my subconscious mind to access inspiration from God and the universe and that this will come to me through the sixth sense.
