What Does Warren Buffet And Bill Gates Say They Needed To Succeed?

“I enjoyed watching Becoming Warren Buffet on HBO, a new documentary. It documents his journey from a whiz kid to one of the world’s wealthiest people. Many of Napoleon Hill’s principles are exemplified in Buffet’s practices and rise in riches. A good show.

Interestingly, the documentary chronicles Buffet and Bill Gates meeting. Both men are asked to write down on a piece of paper what one thing they felt made them so successful. What was the practice or characteristic that, for each of them gave them that edge?

Independent of each other both men wrote down the word ‘focus’.  Focus is defined as ‘the center of activity or interest’ and ‘the state or quality of having or producing clear visual definition’. Hill stated one needs a Definite Chief Purpose, or Aim, that was well-specified.

The Mind Is As Strong As Its Weakest Think – Concentrate – Focus

He further stated this Aim must be held in one’s mind, to the exclusion of all else, as a burning desire. It’s by will-power that one maintains focus on this Aim until one successfully brings it to fruition.  You must persist and apply his principles to succeed.

Both Gates and Buffet considered focus THE main ingredient for accumulating great wealth. Perhaps, you should, too. Perhaps, you should read Think And Grow Rich for yourself. Then, put into practice the principles history has proven are responsible for making more millionaires than any other book. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Stop Doing This! just Stop It! Stop It! Your Life Will Be Much Better!

“Stop trying to control everything! Stop trying to control the people in your life. Stop insisting they be different. Stop insisting they agree with you. If there is one thing you should have learned in life it’s that it’s impossible to change others!  So give it a rest. Allow them to be.

Letting loved ones and friends be who they are, in all their glory and in all their imperfections, is a great way to love and respect them. Each of us is who we are. Love yourself for who you are with all the good and not so good. Do the same for those around you. Let go!

‘The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves and not to twist them to fit our own image.’ – Thomas Merton. It is foolish and folly to try. It is futile. If you want changes, change yourself. You are the only one you can truly control. Improve yourself and let others be. Love, delight and be grateful they’re in your life. Be glad! Be happy! Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Stop It Drop It Let It Come To You!

“How do you get ahead and succeed? What kind of mindset do you need? These questions plague many people. The answer is quite simple. For most people, the problem is they don’t do what they should to be effective. They don’t do what is necessary to succeed.

They don’t commit nor persist. You must learn to maintain focus on your desired result and not waver. Locked on laser like focus is necessary. Focus on the dream or goal as completed. You are already it. You are doing it. You have it. Focus on this and feel good.

Feel how good it feels! Don’t be concerned with ‘how’ to make it happen. Stop attempting to dictate ‘how’ you bring it about, ‘how’ you manifest or attract it. Focus on the incredible feelings of having it. Vibe high. Let go of ‘how’. Stay focused on it already as yours!

Get Out Of The Way – Stop Preventing Yourself From Having

Yes, take steps toward getting it but let go of insisting on how it comes to you. It could come in expected or unexpected ways. Most likely, you won’t even see it coming, but it will. If you stay focused and dedicated it will surprise you how it shows up. So, let go and allow. Keep the faith. Stay focused and do not waver. Enjoy and delight. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

What Will You Do? The Future Is In Your Hands

“‘The chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken’. This quote has been ascribed to many through the centuries and has been repeated by Warren Buffet, one of the wealthiest men alive. It is worth paying attention to.

He says, ‘what matters most is the kind of person you are’.  So be sure to develop the best habits. Habits will rule you. Make sure you choose wisely those that rule you. Don’t be a servant to habits that hold you back, keep you down, negative, broke and unhappy.

Habits are formed, not at all at once, but gradually through repeated conditioning. Most of our habits evolve without us being aware they are evolving.  Unless we remain alert and aware there is a great possibility you will discover yourself with numerous ‘bad’ habits.

Repetition Is The Mother Of Skill – Skill Comes Of Doing

“You can transform yourself into the person you want to be, but you have to decide early,” says Buffet. At any age you can transform yourself by the decisions you make. When you decide to let go of the ‘bad’ habits and make good ones, you can and you will. It takes will!

Through the same process habits were formed, you will make new ones, but this time with awareness and choice. You will use repetition of behavior, correct behavior, consistently, for long enough, until the new habit, the new neural pathways, takes hold.

This requires dedication, will-power, awareness, correction and persistence. You must persist until the new ones lock in. You can’t dabble. You can’t do some today and then next week, then two days and then a month later. It can’t be random engagement. Get it?

Start Where You Are With What You Have –  Begin Today

You persist daily and see it through to the end. It may be frustrating but it is worth it. Only 2% of people ever do enough to master their mindset, feelings and behaviors to get the results they want that translate into great wealth or happiness! Most remain victims.

98% remain victims to their habitual thinking of lack, worry, fear and negativity. They remain victims to their feelings of inadequacy, loneliness, sadness and worthlessness. They remain victims to inaction, poor decision and procrastination. Time to stop it now!

You can change yourself from loser to winner, from victim to victor, when you repeatedly apply positive principles and practices long enough to make them positive, powerful, and reliable success habits. If you want to badly enough you will find a way!

You Go Where Your Thoughts Take You – You Can’t Escape It

If you don’t you will find excuses. 98% do! 98% find excuses and blame others and outside circumstances. They are not in charge of their success. The default to failure through bad habits. So, what will you decide to do? The future is in your hands! The choice is yours right now. Transform yourself. Begin today. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Odds Are You Won’t Change And Will Likely Die Broke!

“People ask, why him or her, why not me? Why do things always suck? How come I can never get ahead? These and more questions plague many people. Estimates are 95-98% of us will die poor or broke and unhappy. Truly dire statistics! You must decide to change!

Instead of wallowing or disputing, which you can do, use the statistics as a wake up call to get your life and affairs in order so you can live the life of your dreams and leave the legacy you desire. No reason to die broke and unhappy if you can do otherwise. Is there?

Stop being a victim of circumstances and others. Learn to take charge of your life and make it what you want it to be. If you don’t, you will always live someone else’s dream or vision, but not your own. That is sad when you can create your best life ever!

Today You Are Where Your Thoughts Have Brought You

One of the reasons people die broke and unhappy is because they invest in things, purchase things, instead of investing in themselves and their future. This is a big mistake! You can’t take things with you but you will always have your self around you. Become the best self!

You buy things, but don’t buy what is most needed because you can’t, yet, imagine how life would be different if you actually transformed yourself.  The future is invisible, right? The car or dishwasher you can touch right now. You need to shift this.

You won’t end up moving forward and will remain in debt and unhappy, for that very reason. True change comes when you invest, in you and make the invisible future your visible present. This is what each of us needs to do. Invest in you! Invest in having a better future.

Tomorrow You Will Be Where Today’s Thoughts Take You

Do what you need to in order to grow and transform your mindset, feelings, behaviors and results. You must not leave it to chance if you want to be certain you will have enough for your golden years and be happy too. Having more now, and later, requires you to change!

If you want to leave something behind for your kids you must not wait. You must invest in you right now, today! Take care to do what is right for you and you can buy all those things. You can be debt free, even wealthy, if, and when, you decide you want to be.

It takes courage and it takes right action. If you do nothing, nothing will change. If you change some things right now, everything can change for the better. It is up to you how you live now and how you live the rest of your life. Stop procrastinating. Act now. When you invest in yourself, you will celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Are You Costing Yourself Or Making Yourself A Fortune?

“In the HBO Documentary ‘Becoming Warren Buffet’, Mr. Buffet reveals two rules of investing. Rule Number One: ‘Never Lose Money’. Rule Number Two: Never forget, always remember, rule number one. Do not let the power of these rules be lost on you.

Consider that every purchase you make, how you use your money, either feeds you or eats you.  This concept taught by Robert Kiyosaki dates back to ancient Babylon. Everything is either a feeder or an eater; your house, your car, your hobbies, everything you own.

Does it appreciate and feed you, or does it cost you to own it? Your house could be a feeder, an asset, if it appreciates and makes you money, as in you rent a room. It could be an eater, a liability, that costs you monthly mortgage, taxes and repairs. How about your car?

Skill Comes Of Doing – The Proper Fruit Of Knowledge Is Action

Never lose money! Organize your thinking to adhere to this rule. No frivolous spending. Spend only to make more. Invest in yourself. Make what you have make you more. Put your money and investments to work for you. Never lose money! Be smart about it.

The way to wealth is to befriend money. Make it work for you while you sleep and play. Be smart. Save and invest wisely. Be frugal and always live beneath your means so you maintain your financial freedom. Remember the two rules. Apply the two rules. Get smart by learning how to invest. Don’t be stupid with what you have. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

What is Success? How Do You Succeed?

“Consider this: It is far more important to have a dream than to have a dream come true. Once it has come true it is over and done. While it is in progress you are using all your resources, your wits and your mindset to make it happen. You are actively creating and doing.

Earl Nightingale stated, ‘Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal or ideal.’ Isn’t that cool? It is marvelous.Success is the ‘progressive realization’, not just the realization of a goal. Success is everything we do along the way to make our dream come true.

Success is noticing and becoming aware, learning, experimenting, getting feedback, trying again, persisting and growing all during the journey. It is more than just making it happen. It is each step along the way that counts. The steps along the way count more than you, or I, can ever imagine. Celebrate everything! Rex Sikes
