How Mind Implants Increase Business Success


If your business isn't as successful as you envision, what's holding you back? You might say it's a lack of capital, a lack ofemployees, a lack of *great* employees, a lack of time, a lack ofinventory, a lack of ... whatever. But these and similar reasons is not what causes your lack of business success. These reasons -or excuses - are merely the results of a greater cause ... your thoughts.

A Buddhist proverb states, "Thoughts are things. As you think, so you become." In other words, if you're thinking, "I wish I hadsales like him," then you have put yourself in the state of mindof wishing - not having. If you say, "I'm trying to increase sales," then you have put yourself in the state of mind oftrying - not doing. If you say, "I increase my sales 10% every month,"then you have put yourself in the state of mind of doing and having!

Do you see the difference? Trying and wishing are tasks that neverget completed because your focus is not on achievement. It's on "attempting" achievement. Whereas "I increase..." is present tense and action-oriented. It's doing and having.

A great example is the University of Michigan football team. WhenI was growing up in Michigan, I cheered for the Wolverine's football team every year. But it seems almost every year they would get to the Rose Bowl and lose. Later while studying psychology and perceptions I reflected on the statements made by the coach on television, "We will make it to the Rose Bowl!"Guess what? The "doing" and "having" were focused on playing in the Rose Bowl. NOT WINNING THE ROSE BOWL! Why do you think they lost the Rose Bowl?

Success is the way you think about things and the words you choose.As world-renowned psychologist Dr. Wayne Dyer says, "When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."This means you have to alter your perceptions, thoughts and words.If done correctly, the results will be business success. But ...

Changing your thought patterns must be repetitive to be effective.You just can't change your mind once and expect permanent results.Afterall, I'm talking about modifying habits. Which is a dauntingtask to many people. Fortunately, after years of researching successful business men, noted author Napoleon Hill discovered a common thread. To be a success at anything in this world, you need at least desire, belief and action. If you lack the desire or belief, you're in "luck" because he also discovered those fundamental attributes can be learned through AutoSuggestion (nowcalled affirmations).

Affirmations are very effective. But you must be careful which words you choose because you are literally implanting new thoughts to run your life. Affirmations need to be written as a positive, present-tense, action-oriented statement. For example,if you're writing for self-confidence, you might state: "I am self-reliant everyday. I have great inner courage. I do whateverI desire." And so on. Napoleon Hill suggests you read your affirmations aloud once in the morning and once at night until you feel, believe and live your affirmations. The down side is most people get bored and quit before they experience any real results. Fortunately ...

Affirmations are now automatic. You don't need to write your own affirmations. Professionals have pre-written many affirmations. You can purchase a hypnosis CD, a guided meditation CD or even software.

In conclusion, your level of business success is completely your decision. You can think your way to billionaire status like Tom Monaghan - founder of Domino's Pizza (Ann Arbor, MI). Or barely pay the bills as a part time home business owner. In either case,it's your desires, beliefs, thoughts and action that produce business success. A lack of anything is simply a result ofnegative, unresourceful thinking.
