"The starting point of all achievement is desire." Napoleon Hill

The other day I found an old paperback copy of the book Think and Grow Rich buried deep on my bookshelf. Although worn and tattered now from many years of use, this tremendous treasure helped me through some of the toughest times I have ever experienced in my life. This wonderful book taught me the laws of success and provided the motivation to expect more, be more and do more in life. This trail blazing personal development book, written by Napoleon Hill way back in 1937, will always be one of my all-time favorites.

I opened the book and much to my surprise, out fell a goal sheet I had prepared decades ago. This sheet, written when I had little and was accomplishing even less, contained a scribbled listing of the bigger-than-life goals I had at the time. Glancing over the goals, I was struck at how small these once big goals looked to me now.

Even though the goals were really big when I penned them, these listed goals didnt seem or feel all that big now. In fact, they seemed little more than a drop in the bucket.

But I know better.

"If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way." Napoleon Hill

Reflecting on the list in my hands, I was struck at how Mr. Hill's teachings had positively impacted my life. Mr. Hill, through his writings, had encouraged me to think and grow rich; to dream big  and act even bigger. And way back then, I followed his lead.

When I first composed this list, I let it rip. Instead of jotting down a few dinky goals and objectives, I wrote down colossal goals, outlandish goals; goals beyond my wildest dreams, goals far beyond my resources and abilities. Goals I could only dream about, goals I could scarcely imagine myself achieving. Goals I could only wish would come true. Armed with little more than blind faith in the inspiring words of Mr. Hill, I wrote down the impossible, the unattainable, and the unbelievable.

Then set out to achieve them somehow, someway... someday.

Even though I had very little going at the time, I got going. Not really sure of what to do  or exactly how I was going to do it, I worked to get better. And I dared to dream bigger. Despite a scarcity of tangible resources, I used what I had to the very best of my abilities. Basically starting from scratch, I clung tight the powerful words of Mr. Hill: "What the mind of man can conceive and believe - it can achieve."

"Your big opportunity may be right where you are now." Napoleon Hill

Every time I slipped or fell down, I got up. I got better. And I got going again. Determined to make something special of my life, I kept reaching higher, pushing farther; refusing to quit or give in. Through thick and thin, Mr. Hill's words kept echoing in my head, "Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success." Don't stop. Don't quit. Keep moving. Keep believing. Keep pushing forward.

Then one day, that somehow, someway found a way.

Dramatically, almost magically, things started to change. The unreachable became more reachable. The impossible suddenly became possible. The unbelievable became much more believable. And what I once thought as undoable was getting done on a daily basis.

Unbeknownst to me at the time, I was undergoing the evolution of achievement. You start small. You dream big. You act boldly. You keep working. You keep persevering. You keep improving. And ultimately emerge on the other side bigger and better than before.

"Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul; the blueprints of your ultimate achievements." Napoleon Hill

Mr. Hill showed me that success in life is a fairly simple equation. In order to get more than you've presently got, you've got to do more than you are doing right now. While this formula seems intuitive, many fail to make the distinction. Instead of doing more and getting more, they keep doing the same thing, getting the same result. And keep wondering why things never change.

You will not make this mistake.

Starting today, you must be willing to give more in order to get more; to be more in order to become more. You must expand your goals, expand your horizon and expand your vision. And get bigger. Act bigger. Be bigger than ever before. No more thinking small or acting small. No more doing little and receiving little in return. No more waiting around hoping for the best.

From now on, you've got to show some fire. Show some want, some will, some fighting spirit. Show you have what it takes to get the job done. Start moving forward. Start going farther. Start living life to the hilt. And never stop believing.

Before you know it, you will begin reaching your once unreachable goals. You will start achieving those seemingly impossible dreams. You will start doing the undoable on a regular basis. And your once bigger-than-life goals will become a drop in the bucket.

And you will be on your way to bigger and better things.

Power Pointer: Decide what you want. Decide you will have it. Dedicate your life to attaining it. And it will be yours.
