How Do You Attract Opportunity Into Your Life?
self help article
by Jim Rohn

Happiness and wellbeing personal development article about self help, happiness, personal development, self growth. size=1>

Someone recently asked me the question: “How can I have more opportunities come into my life?” Good question, but I think my answer surprised them a bit.

I bypassed the obvious (and necessary) points about hard work, persistence and preparation.

They actually were very hard workers. And they had the great attribute of being seekers, they were on the outlook.

But I felt maybe they were missing this next and most valuable point – attraction.

I always thought opportunities and success were something you went after, then I found out that I needed to turn it around.

Opportunities and success are not something you go after necessarily, but something you attract – by becoming an attractive person.

That’s why I teach development of skills. If you can develop your skills, keep refining all the parts of your character and yourself, your health, your relationships, etc. so that you become an attractive person to the marketplace – you’ll attract opportunity.

Opportunity will probably seek you out. Your reputation will probably precede you and someone will want to do business with you.

All of the possibilities are there by working on the philosophy that success is something you attract.

The key is to continue making yourself a more attractive person by the skills you have, the disciplines you have, the personality you’ve acquired, the character and reputation you have established, the language and speech you use – all of that refinement makes you more attractive to the marketplace.

Personal development – the never-ending chance to improve not only yourself, but also to attract opportunities and affect others.

To Your Success,
Jim Rohn

2. Vitamins for the Mind

Values by Jim Rohn

The major value in life is not what you get. The major value in life is what you become. That is why I wish to pay fair price for every value. If I have to pay for it or earn it, that makes something of me. If I get it for free, that makes nothing of me.

All values must be won by contest, and after they have been won, they must be defended.

Don’t sell out your virtue and your value for something you think you want. Judas got the money, but he threw it all away and hung himself because he was so unhappy with himself.

Values were meant to be costly. If it doesn’t cost much, we probably wouldn’t appreciate the value.

Count the cost first. Don’t pay too big a price for pursuing minor values.

3. Seven Self-Motivators by Brian Tracy (excerpted from Brian Tracy’s Success Mastery Academy)

Here are seven Self-Motivator reminders for you to review on a regular basis:

#1 – Get Serious.
Make a decision to go all the way to the top. Up to now you’ve thought about it. Up to now, it’s passed through your mind. Many of you made the decision, and you’ve made up your mind to go all the way to the top, and your lives have taken off. It’s the most extraordinary thing.

Your life is one way, like in the shadow going up the dark side of the hill until the moment you decide, “By gum, I’m going to be the best at what I do. I’m going to be in the top 10 percent.” And suddenly you rose into the sunshine, and your life is forever after different – wonderful. Get serious. Don’t fool around anymore.

#2 – Identify Your Limiting Step to Sales Success.
What’s your limiting step? What’s the one skill area that’s holding you back? What’s the skill? What’s the quality? What’s the action? Ask other people. Find out what you need to become good at.

Sometimes it may be only one skill. If you became really, really good on the telephone, you could double your prospecting effectiveness and double your sales. If you became very, very good at getting the order at the end from qualified prospects, you could double your sales.

If you became very, very good at managing your time, I mean to really, really manage your time well, you may be able to double your face time and double your revenue. Find out what’s holding you back. What is the critical limiting step that’s determining your success today?

#3 – Get Around the Right People.
Who are the right people? The right people are the people in this room. Get around winners.

Get around positive people. Get around people with goals and plans, people who are going somewhere with their lives and have high aspirations. Get around eagles.

As Zig says, “You can’t scratch with the turkeys if you want to fly with the eagles.” And get away from negative people. Get away from toxic people that complain and whine and moan all the time. Who needs them? Life is too short.

#4 – Take Excellent Care of Your Health.
Take excellent care of your physical health. That means good diet, good exercise. Everybody knows they should eat better foods, get regular exercise and especially lots of rest. That’s very important.

If you’re going to work hard 5 days a week, go to bed early 5 days a week. Get a good night’s sleep. Be fully rested, and tonight get really rested. You don’t have to watch the Letterman Show…

#5 – Positive Visualization.
See yourself as the very best in your field. Remember, all improvement in your life begins with an improvement in your mental pictures.

Visualize yourself; see yourself as the best continually. You are the best. Isn’t that right? So therefore, see yourself as the best.

#6 – Positive Self-Talk. Talk to yourself positively all the time.
Control your inner dialogue. And what do you say to yourself? Say, “I’m the best.” Say it. Say I’m the best. I like myself. I can do it. I love my work.

Yes, that’s how you talk to yourself. And the more you say it to yourself…someone may say, “Well, what if you say those things to yourself and you don’t believe them. Isn’t that lying to yourself?” No, that’s not lying to yourself.

It’s telling the truth in advance. Because it doesn’t matter where you’re coming from – all that matters is where you’re going.

Talk to yourself the way you want to be, not the way you just happen to be at this moment. Remember, you may have gotten where you are today largely by accident. But where you’re going in the future is purely by design.

#7 – Positive Action.
Get going. Move fast. Develop a sense of urgency. A sense of urgency is the one thing that you can develop that will separate you from everyone else in your field. Develop a bias for action.

When you get a good idea, do it now. only 2% of people in our society have a bias for action. And if you’re already in the top 10%, you can move yourself in the top 2% by resolving that whenever you have an idea or something, do it now.

And the faster you move, the better you get. And the better you get, the more you like yourself. And the more you like yourself, the higher your self-esteem is.

And the higher your self-esteem is, the greater your self-discipline. And the more you persist; then you ultimately become unstoppable.

Remember, You’re the best!

”You cannot speak that which you do not know. You cannot share that which you do not feel. You cannot translate that which you do not have. And you cannot give that which you do not possess. To give it and to share it, and for it to be effective, you first need to have it. Good communication starts with good preparation.” Jim Rohn

This program goes beyond an investment in your future to skills you will use your whole life long. This weekend is pure magic. I have never heard Brian so alive and funny as well! We live in an increasingly complex society and this program helps clear the road to success.

As Brian would say, ‘by gum this is it!’ Every tape is mesmerizing and intoxicating to the mind. I listened over and over again and will continue for many years to come. Thank you, Brian Tracy, for knowing what your purpose in life is. I know mine is even clearer than it was before. Thank You!!!”
