There are seven disciplines you must develop if you want to achieve all that is possible for you. You can learn these disciplines through practice and repetition until they become automatic.
Every morning, take three to five minutes to write out your top goals in the present tense. Get a spiral notebook for this purpose. By writing out your ten goals at the beginning of each day, you will program them deep into your subconscious mind.
This daily goal writing will activate your mental powers. It will stimulate your mind and make you more alert. Throughout the day, you will see opportunities and possibilities to move more rapidly toward your goals.
Planning and Organizing
Take a few minutes, preferably the night before, to plan out every activity of the coming day. Always work from a list. Always think on paper. This is one of the most powerful and important disciplines of all for high performance.
Concentration on your Highest-Value Activities
Your ability to work single-mindedly on your most important task will contribute as much to your success as any other discipline you can develop.
Exercise and Proper Nutrition
Your health is more important than anything else. By disciplining yourself to exercise regularly and to eat carefully, you will promote the highest possible levels of health and fitness throughout your life.
Learning and Growth
Your mind is like a muscle. If you don't use it, you lose it. Continuous learning is the minimum requirement for success in any field.
Time for Important People in Your Life
Relationships are everything. Be sure that in climbing the ladder of success, you do not find it leaning against the wrong building. Build time for your relationships into every day, no matter how busy you get.
Time for Important People in Your Life
These seven disciplines will ensure that you perform at the highest level and get the greatest satisfaction and results from everything you do. Study these seven disciplines and then make a plan for how you can incorporate each of them into your daily life.

In my new book, "Zero Limits," I talk about
the unusual therapist who helped heal an entire
hospital ward of mentally ill criminals --
without seeing any of them.
I've since learned his method for healing,
which involves "cleaning" yourself of all
negativity in order to see change in others.
It seems bizarre, but when you take care of
your own issues, they disappear in other people.
The whole idea is to love the problems away.
You do it by saying "I love you," and a few other
statements, non-stop. I've been doing it for two
years now and my life is astonishing. I live in
an almost moment-by-moment state of bliss.
Once I learned this method, I started to use
it on other things besides illness. Since I'm a
practical metaphysician and an entrepreneur,
I wanted to see if this wild method would work
on sales and other bottom line results.
Whenever I would write an article -- much
like this one -- I would send love into it.
Whenever I would write another book -- like
my new one, "Zero Limits" -- I would keep saying
"I love you" in my mind.
What I noticed is my emails and articles
would get read and distributed to *millions*
And my book, "Zero Limits," became an
Amazon bestseller -- six months *before* it
But I didn't stop there in my testing.
Because I want to be sure this method works
for others and not just me, I taught it to my
Bill Hibbler, coauthor with me of the book
"Meet and Grow Rich," was skeptical. But he
borrowed a pre-publication copy of my book,
"Zero Limits," read it, and started loving his
products and his list of subscribers. Here's
what he said:
"Sales for Jan 1-4 were 41.39% higher than
Dec 1-4. During the four day period in January,
I didn't mail my list or launch any new promotion
during that time. All I did was clean while
reading your book and throughout the day."
Bill went on to tell me he saw sales increase
from sites like http://create-ultimate-ebooks.com/
-- which he wasn't promoting *at all*.
How is this possible?
How can "cleaning" yourself with a mantra
like "I love you" make a difference in your sales?
It appears that there is nothing "out there."
The entire world is a projection of what you feel
So, if you feel love, you will attract love.
Because love contains gratitude, you attract
more things to be grateful for. This is the essence
of my book, "The Attractor Factor," and of course
of the movie, "The Secret."
You get what you feel.
At heart I think you (I) just want love. Well, so
does everyone else. When you say "I love you"
inside yourself, you cleanse yourself and you
radiate an energy that others feel.
The result: more sales.
Look at it this way:
Even if this whole method seems totally crazy
to you, what harm can come from you saying "I
love you" in your mind as you make calls, write
emails, deliver pitches, and go about your day?
If nothing else, you'll have better feeling
Try it and see.
By the way, "I love you".

Your income can grow only to the extent you do
If you want to change the fruits, you will first have to change the roots. If you want to change the visible, you must first change the invisible.
Money is a result, wealth is a result, health is a result, illness is a result, your weight is a result. We live in a world of cause and effect.
Thoughts lead to feelings.
Feelings lead to actions.
Actions lead to results.
When the subconscious mind must choose between deeply rooted emotions and logic, emotions will almost always win.
If your motivation for acquiring money or success comes from a nonsupportive root such as fear, anger, or the need to "prove" your self, your money will never bring you happiness.
The only way to permanently change the temperature in the room is to reset the thermostat. In the same way, the only way to change your level of financial success "permanently" is to reset your financial thermostat.
Consciousness is observing your thoughts and actions so that you can live from true choice in the present moment rather than being run by programming from the past.
