You know, the late Earl Nightingale once said that if you lacked
a mentor in your life, and yet wanted to be a success in all you
do, you should find out what everyone else is doing in your
chosen field and then do the exact opposite….
And you’ll probably never make a mistake as long as you live!
There is a huge amount of truth to this. In the investment world,
for example, it is called the contrarian approach. You frequently
find that when all the investment commentators and periodicals
are certain the markets will be rallying for years, that’s the
top of the market, and you should consider selling! Conversely,
when everyone is as pessimistic as hell, and sellers cannot find
anyone to sell to, that’s often the best time to buy. It’s very
often the market bottom.
Consider where else this principle may apply. It’s definitely
true in business. Look at all the DotCom crashes just a few years
ago. Or the mad climb in the Technology stocks sector, followed
by its catastrophic and ruinous decline. How about Politics?
Think about the implications of this principle in that arena!
It’s really the truth. You can go a long way by doing the
opposite of what the crowd is doing, in almost every area of

In this modern world, conformity has become the norm. It is hard
to live in this world without being swayed by all the currents of
manipulation. However, it would greatly benefit you to try. fight
to preserve your authenticity and strive to always be yourself
and to follow your own counsel.
I just came across this excellent section in Stuart Goldsmith ‘s
I thought I share it with you…
“Now the correct order (the key to success if you like) is as
2 Break your dreams down into bite sized chunks.
3 Set weekly, monthly, yearly goals which move you inexorably
closer to your dreams.
I’m talking here about big life-planning goals. There is a very
real place for smaller goals of the ‘trim the hedge, paint the
workshop, read up on Roman history’ variety, but these goals are
not the topic of this book. We’re talking here about eh secrets
of the millionaires – The entrepreneurs who have made their
As Robert L. Schwartz so aptly stated, ‘The entrepreneur is
essentially a visualizer and actualizer… He can visualize it
and when he visualizes it, he sees exactly how to make it
Your big dreams and projects are just too complicated for you to
keep in your mind and retain as a coherent whole. If you do not
break your dream down into achievablew steps, it will remain
exactly that – a dream – a fantasy which you keep repeating but
never take any action to make it happen”
This is so true. If you have been putting your dream project on
hold for ages, maybe this is the inspiration you need to get
serious about putting it into action, starting TODAY?
Of course, this is just one tiny excerpt from a huge amount of
practical wisdom from a man who knows what he is talking about -
because he has done it (starting from scratch. you can get the

The real key to success is Clarity. Without that, and with just a
hazy vision of what you really want from life, you will never
really achieve anything. The universe can only give you what you
want if you are CLEAR about it, and affirm that vision regularly.
I have a great quote for you today from Stuart Goldsmith ‘s
excellent book, “The Seven Secrets Of the Millionaires”.
It goes like this…
“Serious People Actually DO Something; Non-Serious People Talk
About Doing Something or Plan to do Something One Day”
If you want to be wealthy, you must take action.
Action really is the key. You can have the best ideas in the
world or be the most talented person on the planet, yet still if
you do not take action you will remain poor. A half-wit who does
something will beat an inactive genius, hands down.
You need to take action, but most people cannot master this one -
it is far too hard for them.
I couldn’t agree more with this excellent insight from Stuart.
Action is so important. Far too many people – me included – are
way too cerebral. We are always planning to do something
“someday”. Well, today was “someday” yesterday! And tomorrow is
today’s “someday”! I know of people who “somedayed” their entire
A lot of this action avoidance is down to concealed Fear; fear of
success or fear of failure.
Ponder this with regards to your present hopes and dreams. Is
there something you are putting off, studying endlessly around
the subject, without actually DOING something?
And, of course, if you want to study the matter further, Stuart Goldsmith‘s
book in an excellent primer in so many aspects of achieving
success, especially with regards to financial wealth.
But remember this: less procrastination, more ACTION!
