So you want to succeed. You want to have what the “big boys” have. You want to be known as a VIP wherever you go. You want to break the glass ceilings. You want the power to make life happen on your terms.
Well, I have good news for you. It can be done. But you may have to change your mind-set. If you are not where you want to be right now, you will have to make some change in your life to get there. This book, and the material associated with it, is intended to show you how to make yourself and your ideas well known above others in your field of labor, others in your social interactions, above others in your ability to obtain what you seek consistently throughout your life. This information will guide you into becoming more powerful and influential. This is about you getting what you want in life.
You don’t have to be an MIT graduate or a Bill Gates type—although he did this very well indeed! Anyone can become well known, more respected, much more promotable at work. Anyone can build better credibility, create global credentials and, in short, just about name their own terms.
You are about to learn how! Yes, you can find the keys to becoming well known, respected and looked up to. That’s true no matter who you are now, or where you are in life right now.
Ninety-five percent of your success depends on your ability to influence the perceptions, thoughts, and desires of others—influence them in such a way as to persuade them to cooperate with you in producing the results you want. That goes for work, social activities and even personal relations. Yet 99 percent of us do not realize that we already do this influence thing every day of our lives. Now, we just have to find out how, and do it better.
We each possess certain talents; that is, certain things we are already good at. And many of us think that this is all we are capable of achieving. Not true. Each of us can learn, and develop within us, the characteristics of others who have mastered the goals we seek. Nothing is closed to us. Nothing is an exclusive gift.
We can all obtain the qualities that enhance our chances for success in life. We can each learn to be a musician, a public speaker, a teacher, a leader of peace, a doctor, a lawyer, a baker or a candlestick maker.
You see, no one is forbidden. But you must take the steps to success seriously. To accomplish whatever you desire, you must first recognize exactly what you desire, accept that you can achieve it, adopt the proper strategy, and take the correct action.
It is doing that makes the difference. There are those of us who will succeed. There are those of us who will fail. It is in believing that you can, then taking action based upon those beliefs—never embracing failure—that will cause your dreams to become reality.
How long did it take you, as a baby, to learn to walk, talk, or even eat by yourself? The answer is: until you did it. Even then you didn’t stop. You kept at it until you mastered it. So, you have within you what it takes to persevere. And with perseverance, you can do whatever you choose to do.
This is not merely a book. It is a learning program.
· It’s about perception
It is not the vehicle we use to deliver the message that’s important. It’s not the content of our message. It’s how well we deliver the message. It’s about the impression we present to the world: What the world perceives us to be. The worlds perception of you is everything! Your image!
