Millionaire Mind - Secret Of The Millionaire Mind Revealed
Hey Future Millionaire,
There's so much value in reading about the successes of other people.
You can get so much from it.
I was reading a recent edition of Forbes Magazine and the theme was "the best advice I ever got" and I want to share one story with you.
The magazine was interviewing billionaire Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin Atlantic Airways, and he said something very interesting.
Talking about his mentor, Freddie Laker, Branson said:
"At the time, I was running a little record company; I was about 17 years old. The first time I met him was some years later. I was thinking about setting up my own airline. He gave me this advice: 'You'll never have the advertising power to outsell British Airways. You are going to have to get out there and use yourself. Make a fool of yourself. Otherwise you won't survive'."
Many people ask me, they say, "Mike, what are some tips on how to be successful?"
I want to share one with you that was very tough for me; I still struggle with it today at times, but I've had my share of victories as well.
If you re-read the quote above from Richard Branson, you'll see that his mentor gave him the advice of "Make a fool out of yourself." I want to say it a different way to you.
I'll say it this way:
You're not going to unleash your greatness and reach your financial goals if you don't STRETCH YOURSELF.
To do something great you must first be uncomfortable.
Uncomfortable always comes before comfortable.
Michael Dell, Tiger Woods, Warren Buffet, Julia Roberts all stretched themselves a ton, they took risks, and they had the COURAGE to persevere.
Here's the good news.
You don't need to stretch yourself 100%, 50% or even 25%.
This is what you need to do today.
Stretch yourself 1%. Yes, that's it!
What is one action that I know I need to do today, but that is uncomfortable and tough for me to do?
Is it prospecting, public speaking, asking for a raise? Whatever it is, stretch yourself and GO FOR IT.
I believe in you and it's time you 'knock the ball out of the park' and live your dreams.
Richard Branson was scared also, he had a ton of fears and probably still does to this day.
He just made the DECISION to go for it and now he's one of the wealthiest people in the world.
Give yourself the gift of stretching yourself 1% today.
You'll love yourself for it.

Choice: Privilege, Opportunity and Responsibility
One of my absolute favorite quotes is from Dwight D. Eisenhower. If you have been a subscriber for long you may have heard me use it before. Eisenhower said that, "The history of free men is never written by chance, but by choice - their choice."
Preparing For Success
Everyone wants to be successful. Everyone wants to have more, be more, do more, and enjoy more of what life has to offer. We are driven continually forward toward the accomplishment of the things that are most important to us. The entire human race is a made up of people striving toward the realization of their potential in every area. Because of this, there is tremendous competition for the good of things in life. Everybody wants them, and no one is ever fully satisfied. The satisfaction of a want or desire leads automatically to a want or desire for something else. And it never ends.
I confess, I love westerns. There is nothing like those "Showdown" scenes where the film is shot from down low and you see those boots moving slowly, step by step until they come to a stop just 100 feet from the other guy. Tumble weed blows by. The wind stirs the dust. The camera moves up and you see fingers twitching, getting ready to draw. You know that it is only a few moments until the good guy lets the bad guy have it and he'll be on his way to saving the day and setting the town free again. All that stands in his way is this one obstacle. But that obstacle must be put away.
Success = Prosperity
Material or physical success is often measured by the level of prosperity achieved.

The Other F Word - How Failure Can Be The Key To Your Success
Thomas Edison has done it. Naomi Watts often jokes about it. Sylvester Stallone mastered it. Billy Joel did it with his piano. Even Abraham Lincoln earned a name for himself for doing it many times over. In fact most of us experience it fairly frequently. Some more than others. It's known as the other 'f' word. The difference, however, between the mega-successful and the rest of us ordinary folk is a simple matter of interpretation. I'm talking about 'failure'. Wait! Stop! It's not that bad I promise!

Success Begins and Ends With You
Success is a word that is much used in our society. We probably hear it at least once each day, especially in commercials. It could be said that many of us are spending so much time concerned about success that we do not set things in motion to achieve our own success. One thing is apparent to me, and that is that each individual must determine what success means in their own lives. Those who go through life trying to achieve so-called success by someone's standards or by the advertising industry's standards will always fall short of feeling successful.
