CHAPTER 7-ORGANIZED PLANNING: THE
CRYSTALLIZATION OF DESIRE INTO ACTION
“The oldest of admonitions is “Man, know thyself!” If you market
merchandise successfully, you must know the merchandise. The same
is true in marketing personal services. You should know all your
weaknesses in order that you may either bridge them or eliminate
them entirely. You should know your strength in order that you may
call attention to it when selling your services. You can know
yourself only through accurate analysis.
Before you even start to negotiate…Be sure that you are worth more
than you now receive.” Napoleon Hill
Hill has given us a big challenge. The challenge as I see it is
twofold: (1) Put together an organized plan of action and (2) Know
who I am and have a way to tell others.
What a gift I with Mentoring for Free, that of an organized plan to
show people that there is an answer to their failure and frustration
in building a business. Think of the tools given to me: Think and
Grow Rich Lesson for personal growth; a free book Success in 10 Steps
which I can give freely to anyone; a great website to advertise the
eBook; training calls on leadership, advertising, marketing, using
social media; training on understanding personalities by studying the
Colors, all have been made available for us to use freely. My part is
to act on this training by using them. I have no excuse but to succeed.
I have gained more skills in my time here. I know I can speak my desires
into existence. I have learned how to use social media the right way. A
phone is now a tool I used with joy. I can write lessons, blogs, ads,
posts, and more. I can say without a doubt I am having more fun than I
have had in many years.
Now to “Man, know thyself!” I know this: I am blessed and highly favored.
I have a brain given to me by God, and I can use it. I am “10 feet tall
and bulletproof.” The failure and frustration I felt is not my fault. The
errors of the past are just “bumps” in time and not the finish end. I am
in an industry that needs me as a leader. I can be a voice for others who
are struggling in their business.
What can I tell others? I will believe in them until they can believe in
themselves. I will be a friend, mentor, and partner for as long it takes.
I will share what I know, point to others who have answers, and show them
the tools that are available to them.
Thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy, your encouragement is a true blessing.
I have belief today because of you. Your gift of this platform is priceless
and my desire is to pass it on to others. Thanks to all who download STS
and are letting me be a friend and mentor.

confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the
life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected i
common hours.” Thoreau.
