The Formula For Failure & Success - Jim Rohn

Failure is not a single, cataclysmic event. We do not fail overnight. Failure is the inevitable result of an accumulation of poor thinking and poor choices. To put it more simply, failure is nothing more than a few errors in judgment repeated every day.

Now why would someone make an error in judgment and then be so foolish as to repeat it every day? The answer is because he or she does not think that it matters.

On their own, our daily acts do not seem that important. A minor oversight, a poor decision, or a wasted hour generally doesn't result in an instant and measurable impact. More often than not, we escape from any immediate consequences of our deeds.

If we have not bothered to read a single book in the past ninety days, this lack of discipline does not seem to have any immediate impact on our lives. And since nothing drastic happened to us after the first ninety days, we repeat this error in judgment for another ninety days, and on and on it goes. Why? Because it doesn't seem to matter. And herein lies the great danger. Far worse than not reading the books is not even realizing that it matters!

Now here is the great news. Just like the formula for failure, the formula for success is easy to follow: It's a few simple disciplines practiced every day.

Now here is an interesting question worth pondering: How can we change the errors in the formula for failure into the disciplines required in the formula for success? The answer is by making the future an important part of our current philosophy.

Both success and failure involve future consequences, namely the inevitable rewards or unavoidable regrets resulting from past activities. If this is true, why don't more people take time to ponder the future? The answer is simple: They are so caught up in the current moment that it doesn't seem to matter. The problems and the rewards of today are so absorbing to some human beings that they never pause long enough to think about tomorrow.

But what if we did develop a new discipline to take just a few minutes every day to look a little further down the road? We would then be able to foresee the impending consequences of our current conduct. Armed with that valuable information, we would be able to take the necessary action to change our errors into new success-oriented disciplines. In other words, by disciplining ourselves to see the future in advance, we would be able to change our thinking, amend our errors and develop new habits to replace the old.

One of the exciting things about the formula for success—a few simple disciplines practiced every day—is the results are almost immediate. As we voluntarily change daily errors into daily disciplines, we experience positive results in a very short period of time. When we change our diet, our health improves noticeably in just a few weeks. When we start exercising, we feel a new vitality almost immediately. When we begin reading, we experience a growing awareness and a new level of self-confidence. Whatever new discipline we begin to practice daily will produce exciting results that will drive us to become even better at developing new disciplines.

The real magic of new disciplines is that they will cause us to amend our thinking. If we were to start today to read the books, keep a journal, attend the classes, listen more and observe more, then today would be the first day of a new life leading to a better future.

P.S. If you desire to make your dreams come true, start by following this activity-driven plan: The Success Package. When you've completed that program this is your next step: Building a Better Life

THE ONE MINUTE COACH™ : Change Your Life One Minute at a Time

My friend in Spain, Masha Malka, has written an e-book in a series of easy life-changing weekly routines you can carry out at home, at work, or at play. You won't need to go to classes, you won't need expensive CDs or DVDs and even the busiest of people will be able to use this book whenever they have a spare minute - the results can be extraordinary!

"The One Minute Coach is an excellent source of quick, easy-to-read applied wisdom. And it's so well organized that I can always come back to specific sections when needed."

Click here to order Masha Malka's "One Minute Coach" and receive your FREE bonuses (amazing e-books, seminars, audio programs,e-courses, charitable donations and more!

America’s Business Growth Guru Joel Block wrote this about Masha Malka and her new book:
“How is it that some people — who start at the absolute bottom and have the furthest to travel up the mountain — are the most successful at scaling the highest peaks in their quest for success?

One of the shining star examples of somebody that started at the bottom is Masha Malka. As a teenager, she left an economically depressed country in a politically oppressed environment. At that time her family left the Soviet Union and moved as refugees into another part of Europe. Masha managed to learn new language skills and make all new friends, while at the same time, her family had to start over economically. She obviously learned a lot from the experiences of her childhood.

Masha has taken those experiences and put what she learned into one of the most unusual manuscripts that I've ever seen. Masha Malka has put together a book that helps anyone who wants to move from "here to there." The secret is within the new process she formatted for taking action.

It's laid out different than any book I've ever seen before. She starts by identifying the achievements that you want to accomplish and on the facing page, the steps that you need to take are already laid out for you. Just a few pages of this easy to read book will start to put you on a course of action that is both powerful and real. I've never seen anything laid out this way, and it certainly spoke to me…”
Go here to read the rest.

Visit Masha Malka's "One Minute Coach" and read all the testimonials for yourself. I recommend this book to you.

Will you join in the game or just watch?

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."

- Theodore Roosevelt

Opportunity knocks and it is up to each of us to recognize what is possible. We might not achieve our goal for whatever reason but no prize goes to the person who never starts, who never joins the game.

A Creed For Self-Discipline

Recognizing that the power of will is the supreme court over all other departments of my mind, I will exercise it daily, when I need the urge to action for any purpose; and I will form habits designed to bring the power of my will into action at least once daily.

Realizing that my emotions are both positive and negative I will form daily habits which will encourage the development of the positive emotions, and aid me in converting the negative emotions into some form of useful action.

Recognizing that both my positive emotions and my negative emotions may be dangerous if they are not controlled and guided to desirable ends, I will submit all my desires, aims and purposes to my faculty of reason, and I will be guided by it in giving expression to these.

Recognizing the need for sound plans and ideas for the attainment of my desires, I will develop my imagination by calling upon it daily for help in the formation of my plans.

Recognizing that my emotions often err in their over-enthusiasm, and my faculty of reason often is without the warmth of feeling that is necessary to enable me to combine justice with mercy in my judgments, I will encourage my conscience to guide me as to what is right and what is wrong, but I will never set aside the verdicts it renders, no matter what may be the cost of carrying them out.

Recognizing the value of an alert memory, I will encourage mine to become alert by taking care to impress it clearly with all thoughts I wish to recall, and by associating those thoughts with related subjects which I may call to mind frequently.

Subconscious Mind
Recognizing the influence of my subconscious mind over my power of will, I shall take care to submit to it a clear and definite picture of my major purpose in life and all minor purposes leading to my major purpose, and I shall keep this picture constantly before my subconscious mind by repeating it daily.


Discipline over the mind is gained, little by little, by the formation of habits which one may control. Habits begin in the mind; therefore, a daily repetition of this creed will make one habit-conscious in connection with the particular kind of habits which are needed to develop and control the six departments of the mind.

The mere act of repeating the names of these departments has an important effect. It makes one conscious that these departments exist; that they are important; that they can be controlled by the formation of thought-habits; that the nature of these habits determines one's success or failure in the matter of self-discipline.

Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is amost a proverb.
Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.

The slogan "Press On" has solved and always will solve the problems of
the human race."

Joe Vitale experiences the One Finger Manicure

Dr Joe Vitale told this story,

While escorting my sister around San Antonio's famed river walk, a young, tiny woman at a kiosk quietly stopped me with the question, "Want to see something amazing?"

Of course, I was curious. I said yes.

She asked me to put my hands in a bowl. Then she poured a small amount of dead sea something or other on my hands and asked me to wash them. I did.

"When was the last time you washed your hands?" she asked. Though it was Saturday, I said, "Last Monday."

She laughed, and then pointed out how dirty my hands were. Apparently the dead sea stuff was getting dead dirt off my hands. The little lady then asked me if she could do my fingernail. I agreed.

She began to scrub my index finger's nail with some dead sea block of something or other. As she did, she asked, "When was the last time you had a manicure?"

"A manicure? Probably in a past life. I've never had one."

The girl went on with her sales pitch. I was going along with the demo, thinking all along I would just buy this stuff for Nerissa. But I have to admit I was enjoying the interaction and becoming interested in the products. It was hypnotic selling at work. Though the girl seemed a little awkward in her presentation, she was doing fine in engaging me. But the punch line was yet to come.

At the end of her spiel, I bought just under one hundred dollars of her goods. She then announced, "My name is Melinda and you were my first customer."

I was stunned. Almost speechless. "You've never done this before?" I asked.

"Today's my first day," she replied. "You're my first customer." Her boss was standing behind the kiosk and came out to confirm that yes, indeed, Melinda just made her first sale.

It goes to show you that you can never determine what people are thinking, what their skills or experience level might be, or much else, until you put them on the stage. And even then you won't know for sure.

This is true for you, as well. So go out there and try something new today.

Ao Akua,
Joe Vitale

Lack of Decision leads to Failure

Accurate analysis of over 25,000 men and women who had experienced failure, disclosed the fact that lack of decision was near the head of the list of the 30 major causes of failure. This is no mere statement of a theory - it is a fact.
Procrastination, the opposite of decision, is a common enemy which practically every man must conquer.

You will have an opportunity to test your capacity to reach quick and definite decisions when you finish reading this lesson and are ready to begin putting into action the principles which it describes.

Analysis of several hundred people who had accumulated fortunes well beyond the million dollar mark, disclosed the fact that every one of them had the habit of reaching decisions promptly, and of changing these decisions slowly, if, and when they were changed. People who fail to accumulate money, without exception, have the habit of reaching decisions, if at all, very slowly, and of changing these decisions quickly and often.

The majority of people who fail to accumulate money sufficient for their needs, are, generally, easily influenced by the "opinions" of others. They permit the newspapers and the "gossiping" neighbors to do their "thinking" for them. "Opinions" are the cheapest commodities on earth. Everyone has a flock of opinions ready to be wished upon anyone who will accept them. If you are influenced by "opinions" when you reach decisions, you will not succeed in any undertaking, much less in that of transmuting your own desire into money.

If you are influenced by the opinions of others, you will have no desire of your own.

- Napoleon Hill, from "Think and Grow Rich"
