“What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”

In defining our goals and dreams, a few friends and I decided to start a Think and Grow Rich workshopbased on the book written by Napoleon Hill back in 1937. Hill was hired on a 20 year contract to interview 500 wealthy business people to determine what made them successful. As a result of that study, he wrote Think and Grow Rich, in which he outlined 13 principles. The book remains a best seller today, over 70 years later.

The first step focuses on how to take your dreams and map them into goals. The workshop has been very helpful to us and has given us the tools to follow our dreams. For example, one of our group was selling jewellery part time at a local market. When she started the workshop, her best day had been about $300 in sales; halfway through the course, her sales were over $1,600. She is making her dreams a reality.

I hope everyone is enjoying the fabulous weather that we are having this summer. It is a great time to relax and quietly reflect on whether we are living the life we want, something we don’t always get the opportunity to do.

If you would like to find out more about the Think and Grow Rich workshop, please email me for details. It is free for Mingle readers.
