Think & Grow Rich - Chapter 7 - Organized Planning
This is the chapter that tends to overwhelm me.
I have learned in my life to break things down
into little manageable steps and then 'do it'.
It is the only way to keep from getting discouraged
and not make a START.
I knew what I was undertaking was important.
In the beginning I had so much to learn and I
was not sure or confident. Day by day I would
begin again and the result of my persistence
has been growth and progress over time.
The only way I had a chance to succeed was
to take advantage of the experience, education,
native ability and the imagination of other minds.
I know that they have what I NEED to have success.
Here is where I adapted and followed a sound plan
of experience people that have gone before me.
The key was: it had to be a joint creation of myself
and every other member of my Master MInd group.
I need the greens solid calm stable influence and direction
I need the blues to keep the high energy and see the plan in it's
completion. I need other yellows gentle, dependable support.
Perhaps a dash of red for focus and goal setting.
I had to BEGIN as a intelligent follower. It meant I had to
get close, very close and learn from my leaders. In the
beginning to learn I had to watch and listen, then participate.
In the list of attributes of leadership I see where I have
strengths and the weaknesses I need to work on.
Equally important is 'what NOT to do' as I review the
10 major causes of failure. Any ONE of these can
induce failure, it must be studied carefully if I want to
aspire to leadership. AND I DO WANT IT.
Each day I give the best quality and quantity of service, working
in a spirit of harmony. Always with the object of greater efficiency
in the back of my mind.
Next 30 major causes of failure are given for me to use as a check
point. I will find someone to go over the list with me this week.
The information in this chapter is of great value and is essential
to market my services to the best advantage.
I have stepped to the front, selected what I want, created my plan,
put the plan into action and I will follow through with persistence.
Always with the spirit of giving before I get. Each day I will put
forth the best effort I know how knowing tomorrow will be even better.
This chapter is the homework, where my desire is brought to precise
I am a winner, because I will never quit.
