Key Ideas

Thoughts are powerful

Thinking - the mixture of initiative, faith, willingness to win, and resilience - is more conducive to success than any other feature. 

Desire...

... is the one stage that links thoughts and actions together:

Thoughts → Committment (or Desire) → Action.

Faith

It means convincing yourself that your goal is achievable.

With a specific end in mind, practice convincing your mind of the opportunity to realize that goal, and after a while, your mind will start to subconsciously act on behalf of your belief system.

Specialized knowledge

If you’re not specialized about the products or services you sell, you’re probably never going to be wealthy or successful in any endeavor.

Education doesn’t stop on graduation day, and those who believe that are eternally condemned to mediocrity.

Imagination can take the shape of:

  • Synthetic Imagination: Where your mind is limited to finding new combinations with past experiences.
  • Creative Imagination: When you think about the future in terms of opportunities.

Decision-maker vs. procrastinator

Procrastination means giving up on yourself. Taking action equals making decisions.

Decide what you want your life to look like, provide what's currently lacking (resources, positive associations powerful routines and habits), then go after your goals.

Mastermind Alliance

Once two or more minds get together, a third, way more powerful mind is created;

Surround yourself with like-minded people that can give you noteworthy insights and sparks that you can draw inspiration from. 

Subconscious mind

It is like an archive: it receives and contains your thoughts and impressions, regardless of their nature.

So if you feed your brain with the vision of wealth and success, it’ll work its way through making those aims a physical reality.

The worst facets of Fear

  • Fear of poverty. Poverty and wealth can’t coexist.
  • Fear of criticism. It can rob you of power, self-confidence and independent thinking.
  • Fear of ill health. Becoming pessimistic and ill-minded because of widespread negativity.
  • Fear of losing love.
  • Fear of old age.
  • Fear of death.

How to manifest an unconditional Desire
  • Occupy your surroundings with desire superstars.
  • Substitute the roots of pessimistic energy with affirmative and optimistic energy. 
  • Take action upon well-researched and thought-out knowledge.
  • Put yourself in positive places, and surround yourself with good people.
  • Burn those bridges, such that you commit and leave yourself without any other choice but to push on.
  • Use mediums such as positive music, videos, and images to reinforce your desires.

Advance Diversity Awareness for thoughtful leaders.

Challenge: Expose Biases too hidden to be seen.

Innovation: An identity survey with easily visible results.

Lesson: More than one social identity is examined at the same time and allows becoming aware of issues related to diversity and privilege.

How to bring the Identity survey to life
  • Do not overestimate your own competency. Life experience alone is not enough to become a diversity expert.
  • Broaden students’ perspective on privilege. A broad spectrum of topics that can reveal differences.
  • Demonstrate authenticity — and grace. Making cultural faux pas is an opportunity for teaching and showing grace.

  • Focus on solutions.  Awareness encourages motivation toward solutions.
