CHAPTER 15 HOW TO OUTWIT THE SIX GHOSTS OF FEAR

Why do we download an ebook hoping to find the secret to help us become
successful, then take no action?

Could it be:

                      INDECISION, DOUBT AND FEAR?

I dare say it is one or more of these enemies. But we don't hear those enemies.
What most people say is:

1.  I'm too busy.
2.  I forgot the time of the training.
3.  I'm working on my next pin level in my company.
4.  I'm working during the calls.
5.  I have a coach in my company.
6.  I want to be successful, but I don't want to work that hard. LOL
    I Love this one. This one may not be said, but it speaks very loud.
7.  And the excuses go on and on.

Michael has a list of over 100 excuses. He says, just pick one.

The Fear of CRITICISM is a big one. I know, I have been there. Michael gave this
statement quite a few times before I got it. Once I did get it, that fear was no
more. It is:

          It is NONE of my business what other people think of me.
     The ONLY THING that is my business is what I think of myself.

When we get this statement, those enemies will go away. The excuses will go
away.

This chapter is where most people who have been through the 15 chapters a time
or two, make the decision to do what they came here for, in the first place.
Take that first step toward; becoming a leader.

It all starts right here in Think and Grow Rich Lessons. To make more, we must
become more.

Will there continue to be challenges? Yes! But we will have learned the 13
Steps, at least a part of them,  and found ways to get around and over
challenges.  Those speed bumps won't cause us to quit.

Sure the DEVIL's WORKSHOP will be there ready to influence us at our weakest
moment. But we will have learned at least two methods of shrugging off those
influences. They are the "Stop It" video and our properly CRAFTED self-talk.
Between the two, they will occupy our minds and keep us in a positive mindset.

This is the recipe for being successful here in Mentoring For Free. It's the
recipe for being COACHABLE. It's the recipe for having fun. Learning something
on every single one of the calls we are on. It's why we downloaded Michael's
ebook in the first place.

I am so grateful to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for their commitment to creating a
place in the vain of Napoleon Hill's book, Think and Grow Rich, that has help
100,000s of people be successful. In recent years Mentoring For Free is doing
the same due to Michael and Linda's persistence. They did not QUIT. Thank you,
thank you and thank you Michael and Linda.

I'm also very grateful to the members of each of our 9 weekly calls for their
desire to take this book to heart and improve their life and lively hood.
Without them we would not have the opportunity to learn success. Thank you,
thank you and thank you to each of you.

PS: I am compelled to thank each of the people who have downloaded my copy of
Michael's ebook and have a strong desire to find the secret to success. I am so
grateful to each of them for our communicating. We are a master mind just as
each of our weekly calls. We are helping each other along our journey to
greatness. Thank you, thank you and thank you to each of you.
