“The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat.” Napoleon Hill

“There is one quality which one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it.”Napoleon Hill

Who am I?

What do I really want?

Everything begins with these questions…

Impossible becomes I’m possible.

Small, yet enormous difference.

“Remember…
Success is all in your HEAD — the thoughts you think and your belief of what’s possible for your life…
Success is all in your HEART — your sense of passion, purpose and mission…
Success is all in your HANDS — the choices you make and the actions you take.
Your HEAD… your HEART… and your HANDS ALL have to be in the game to win… not just one or two!” Think TQ

The plot is the same. The outcome is predictable. And you can use it to your advantage. You can prepare for every possible scenario. You can apply it everywhere…

“If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them.  Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.”

little bit of ancient strategies in modern environment:

“To fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence;
supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting.”

I believe that all of us have successfully applied this strategy in the “battle” with the people we love as well with the people we professionally communicate with.

the fundamental point of J. Paul Getty’s success?

A Mantra. This mantra:

“I take pride in the creation of my wealth, in its existence and in the uses to which it has been and is being put.” – J. Paul Getty

With this mantra, J. Paul Getty expanded his empire, and started adding more and more to his sizable estate, at the same time taking pride in his own work, efforts and success.
