The Mind of A Successful Thinker
I was'nt born with a clear thought in my head. It's always a
jungle and a puzzle in there. Sometimes I make sense of it.
Often times not. But this I know, those thoughts would make me a
When I was still that puny little kid of 8 years old, I would
often explain to myself, and often times in my head, why we have
"this" and why we have "that". I would often believe that I am
right and when an "explanation" struck me like why the sky is
blue and not pink, I would go right to the encyclopedia and then
found out that I was, indeed, closer to the truth. I thought of
myself as strange and lucky at the same time, never thinking
that at some point, these "bursts" of thoughts would make me a
more bolder type of person. Never afraid of quantified but
Last night, I devoured the words and thoughts of some of our
"successful thinkers" in their prime. Corey Rudl, Marlon
Sanders, Terry Dean and a lot more. I was in that deep self-less
thought wondering what "really" made them click and hot and why
their words and thoughts alone sell in the millions. These are
what I found out.
Never afraid to be what you have to be
There would always be a point in your life when you would burst
the bubble and tell yourself that you would never be successful.
Wrong. Everyone of us has a reason to be here. Never be afraid
to do what you want to do or to be what you have to be. There
will be a time when you have to let go of your creativity, of
your inner self and be the super person that you are.
I had dreams of becoming a successful songwriter and singer even
when I was 5 years old. I would often see myself on the stage
with bright lights and people showering me with compliments. I
can never let go of that inspiration until I came to a point
that I was doing it. I now have national multiple song writing
awards and I am proud that some of the most successful singers
have been singing the songs of my childhood..of what I've been
Let your pain make you strong
We all have our pains. Pains from our experiences past and
present. Perhaps you're the most unloved child. You did not
finish high school. You seperated from your wife or husband.
Never the less, you should not let your pain make you weak. Get
your strength from it. I can't tell you how but you're the only
one who can control your emotions. You can change yourself and
only from the "inside-out".
Most successful people had traumatic experiences when they were
young. Perhaps a close love one died. They were very poor and
had practically nothing to eat.
One story my dad always loved to tell was of his relative who
was so poor that he had to borrow my dad's clothes to go to
His cousin loves to read. What he could afford from shining
shoes while on his way home he would pay for comic books. He
devoured everything readable, especially comic magazines.
Back then, it was a popular read for children his age. His
classmates would often borrow from him everyday on recess. What
he would do after he reads them, he lets his classmates borrow
it for a price of $5 cents.
He was so entrepeneurial at that age that he paid himself to go
to college and yes, because of comic books. Right now, as you
read this, he is one of the biggest publishers and owners of
millions of magazines for kids and reaping in billions if not
millions every month.
He's my uncle and last Christmas, he gave me the best gift. He
told me that using yourself as an instrument to help people be
successful is the key to being a successful thinker.
Be a Resource of Something
They always say that you don't need to reinvent the wheel, you
just have to make it better. If you dont' have any successful or
profitable ideas of your own, then be a resource of successful
and profitable ideas, and then profit from it.
Good organization is key
Do you have a weekly to-do calendar? Do you schedule and plan
your time effectively? Usually we always have a lot of things to
do that it devours us, our time, and sometimes our relationship
with other people. It usually happens to people who are
successful in their own fields.
When planning your weekly schedule ahead of time, these are tips
that you should use. Create a roles | goals | priorities notes
first before you try to take them down in your schedule. Your
roles can be this ; (1) a parent (2) husband or wife (3) online
business manager (3) sales manager (4) marketing manager (5)
Being effective does'nt mean, that you have to accomplish your
role as a businesswoman or business man. It means accomplishing
your roles to your family and to yourself as well. Do you think
that your business will gain a lot if you became unstable
because you're having problems with your spouse or because you
got sick? Successful people always have time for themselves and
for their family. If you want to stay in the up and up, dont'
forget things that matter, yourself and your family included,
who, by the way are the reasons why you're working your butt off.
Bring Out the Best in People
The death of one good company is sometimes caused by an
"uninspired" organization. If you are working by yourself and
recognizing another's creativity is seen as a weakness in your
part then I suggest you better re-think your goals.
You can never be succesful alone. People who became successful
harnessed other people's creativity simply because they can't go
where they have to go without the other's help.
Recognizing your weakness and drawing strength from another has
it's good rewards.
In conclusion, I hope that with these thoughts that I have
shared with you have helped you be a successful thinker. Fly
