Formula for Success

Today I read the book I bought 2 years ago, 'Your Right to be Rich' by Mal Emery. I just opened randomly at the middle of the page and found something interesting to share here.

According to Mal, there are 4 basic things that we need in order to success:
1. Decide what it is that you want and be specific. Write it down in detail and read it 3 times daily.
2. Believe that you can actually achieve what you've written down and be willing to pay the price.
3. Take action to make it happen!
4. Lastly, the best way to get result is to model someone who already doing what you want to be doing.

These are the things that basically needed for anybody to success in anything they desired. Sound familiar? Yes, I have mentioned some of the points before. And if you go and talk to anybody who are successful, this would be the basic things most of them will explain.

Michael Gerber, the author of best-selling E-Myth once give a talk in a seminar and during his opening speech he mentioned "If you guys have come to hear something new, you're not going to! You see, the problem is you guys ain't doing this sh-t!"

In-fact 98% of people already know this and they lack of step no. 3. I myself have to admit that I have not really there yet at step no. 3. It is not something which is easy, yet it is not difficult either. But most people who is already in the comfort zone will not take any action until the situation become uncomfortable.

So, first of all I need to remind myself to take the first step. How many among us are reading the dream list every day, or every week, or every month?
