Million Dollar Secret Part II

**Important!!! If You Missed Part 1 Go Back and read first** Click Here

Did you do your assignment? Did you monitor your thoughts?
What have you been focusing on most of the time? Are you
focusing on what you want, or what you don?t want?

If you have habitually been focusing on what you don?t
want, then it?s time to recognize that it will only bring you
more of the same - what you DON'T want!

The fact that you are conscious of your thinking is a giant
step forward. Most people on this planet have no idea what
they are thinking. Instead, they just keep REACTING to
their thoughts.

However, observing what you focus your attention on most of
the time is the key to creating the life you desire.

Let?s continue.

Most people want a better life. In an attempt to change
their life for the better, they often purchase personal
development books and courses and attend personal
development seminars. In this lesson I want to talk about
why most personal development attempts fail.

My guess is that this is not the first personal development
information you have been exposed to. I will even go out on
a limb and say that you have probably tried numerous
personal development books, tapes/Cd's, systems, methods,
or techniques that did not produce the results you

Why Not?

Why do most personal development programs fail? The
answer to this will enable you to rise above the majority of
people who are trying to hopelessly to improve their lives.

Most personal development programs fail because:

1. We Fear Change

Face this fact; no matter what type of personal development
strategy you are using, at some point you are going to have
to make a CHANGE. It could be a small change, or a big
change, but you are going to have to get out of your
?comfort zone?.

Our sub-conscious ?conditioned mind? does not like change.
In fact, it is designed to resist change and to keep us
where we are. The reason for this is the sub-conscious is
primarily a survival mechanism. Its primary function is
survival. It perceives any type of change as a threat to
our survival. Unless we can bypass our survival mechanism,
all our personal development attempts will fail.

2. We Want Instant Results

Today people are conditioned by media advertising to expect
?instant results.? Hence they want it NOW and expect to see
results immediately in one session, one day, one week, one
chapter of a book, etc. They give most personal development
techniques and practices one chance, and if they do not get
immediate results, they get discouraged and give up.

Immediate results are always possible, but sometimes we
need additional time to align our energy with our desires.
If we do not align our energy properly, we will not reach
our goal.

The need for instant results or instant gratification often
keeps people from taking the time to align their energy, so
it actually takes them LONGER to reach their goals.

3. We Give Up Too Soon.

Most people give up too soon. Part of this is due to the
need for instant results and instant gratification. However,
one of the reasons we give up too soon is we look at
temporary setbacks as proof we cannot reach our goal.
When this happens we blame ourselves and/or the personal
development program, book, audio, seminar, etc. for our
inability to achieve out goal and we give up too soon.

In order for any personal development program to work, you
must not give up, even when it ?looks? like it is not working.

4. We are ?TRYING? instead of ?DOING?

Most people ?try? to get what they want. The problem is
every time you ?try?, you are setting yourself up for failure.
In reality you can't try to do anything. You either DO it or you
DON'T. So there is really not such thing as ?trying?.

Your mind may resist this concept, but it is true. You may
say. ?I tried this or that and I eventually succeeded.? You
succeeded when you stopped trying and started doing. You
did what you needed to do to achieve your goal. So the
lesson here is that you cannot succeed as long as you are
?trying?. However, once you stop "trying" and start "doing"
you can begin to expect results.

When people ?try? personal development programs, they
immediately set themselves up for failure. Trying has
built-in failure because if we try something and don?t
succeed, we can always say, ?Well, at least I tried?. But
that does not get you what you want. The problem is that
you can only have two things in life- reasons or results.
In other words, you either have what you want or you have
reasons why you don?t have what you want, but there in
nothing in between.

My point here is that the success or failure with any
personal improvement strategy (or anything else in life) is
based on DOING, not TRYING to DO!

Those who ?try? are guaranteed to fail. Those that DO
(follow through until they get the result they desire) are
the people who achieve their great dreams and desires.

5. We Focus on WHAT Instead of WHY.

Most people fail at personal development efforts because
they focus on WHAT they have to do to get what they want
instead of focusing on WHY they want it. If you lose focus
on WHY you want what you want, and instead you focus on
WHAT needs to be done, you will lose your motivation and
give up when the going gets tough.

Unless you constantly focus on the WHY - the benefits or
what you will gain when you reach your goal - you will not
be able to make the changes you desire and you will give up
as soon as you run into obstacles that seem overwhelming.

What I am asking you to do is to decide how serious you are
about having what you want. WHY do you want what you want?
Forget about what you have to DO to get it. That will take
care of itself. If you are not clear on WHY you want what
you want (the benefits you will gain when your reach your
goal) and are not serious following through until you
achieve it, then don't waste your time reading the rest of
these lessons. Instead, sit back in your recliner, turn on
the TV, open a can of beer, scratch the back of your head,
and just keep doing what you have been doing and I
guarantee you that you will keep getting what you have been

But if you are excited about making a major change in your
life, if you are really ready to attract what you desire,
and you are not going to give up until you reach your goal,
then something wonderful is going to happen in your life.

And it will be in the next few lessons

Thanks again for allowing me to share this material with
you. It's going to get more exciting as we move into each
new lesson so hang in there!
