Since my book "Think Your Way To Success" was published, I've been asked the same question time and time again.
Can you really think your way to success?
Well, think about this.
Everything you do in life you have to think about before you do it, and how you think about it determines how well you do it or whether you do it at all.
Let me give you a good example.
When I do a talk and I'm explaining this to an audience, I say:
In a moment I'm going to get a table, two chairs, two phones and two cold calling scripts and what we're going to do is we're going to get two people out of the audience and we're going to make some cold calls. We're going to phone up people we don't know and we're going to pitch them our business idea or a business opportunity
Now one person picks up the phone and starts dialing, the other person runs out of the room. Probably you all know which one of the two you would more likely be. And believe you me, more people usually run out the room than pick up the phone and make a cold call.
You've got to ask yourself, what's the difference between these two people, the one that picks up the phone who makes the call and the one that runs away?
After all in everyday life they both know how to use the phone, even the person running out of the room uses the phone probably all the time to talk to family and friends, so what is the difference?
There can only be one difference; how they are thinking about it.
One is thinking about it in a way that causes them to engage in action and get results, the other is thinking about it in a way that causes them to run away and not get the result.
So, this is where one person is thinking their way to success and the other one is thinking their way out of or away from success.
So, can you think your way to success? Yes you can.
