Let today be the day that turns your life around. Use the power of the Strangest Secret to start achieving everything you have always wanted…
Basics Behind The Strangest Secret
Here’s a startling fact that I have heard from many different sources…
If you take 100 people at age 25, every one of them that you ask will say that they want to be successful. Every single one! However, when you take those same 100 people at the age of 65…
Out of 100 people that said they wanted to be successful, only 5 of them ended up accomplishing what they wanted!
Why is this? Why do so few people end up living the good life with abundant success? I’ll tell you why…
The answer, is conformity. People have a natural tendency to conform to their surroundings. The problem with this is only 5% of the people in this world are doing the right things. So when people conform, they are usually acting like the 95% that aren’t successful! They live like unsuccessful people. Do the same things as unsuccessful people. And in turn, they themselves become unsuccessful.
This is powerful stuff that you should take note to!
Do you live your life the same way that most people do? Go to work. Come home. Watch some television. Then go to bed. And then repeat this cycle day in and day out. Do you conform just because that is what everybody else is doing?
Now, I’m not suggesting that this is a bad way to live your life. If you are 100% happy with your job and absolutely love where the future is taking you then congratulations! I would consider you a success.
However, what I am suggesting is that if you don’t like where you are headed, make a change! Stop conforming and start doing something different. Don’t head towards financial disaster just because that’s where everybody else is headed! We are currently living in the richest time in the history of the world! There’s plenty of opportunity, if you choose to, to become one of the five percent.
What Is The Strangest Secret?
So what exactly is the strangest secret that Earl Nightingale talks about. What is the secret to success? What is the secret to failure? It’s very simple actually…
“We become what we think about.”
Throughout history, people have disagreed on many things. But this one thing is what everyone has agreed on. Just take a look at a few examples of this discovery…
Norman Vincent Peale considered this his greatest discovery. The secret is also the basis behind the book Think And Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. If you’ve never read this book, I urge you to buy it immediately!
The strangest secret has been around for hundreds and thousands of years. Yet very few people know about it. And even fewer (5%) ever apply this incredible and simple secret to success. That’s what makes it so strange. And that is why it is called the strangest secret.
It’s worked time and time again. Yet, so very few people become successful because they don’t think enough about what they want to become!
People conform. They do what everybody else is doing so they don’t have to think or use their brains. Our mind is one of our must prized possessions, yet most of us use it for very little. We use it for television instead of really applying it. Don’t take for granted the incredible power of your mind.
How And Why The Strangest Secret Works
Before you learn how to apply the strangest secret, you need to understand what makes it so effective.
You see, your mind is an incredible thing. It’s capable of doing more than you could possibly imagine. For example, did you know that theoretically you could remember every little detail that has ever happened to you? It’s true. Your mind can do some very powerful stuff! The Strangest Secret gives a great example of how you can take advantage of it’s enormous potential…
Imagine a farmer. He has two crops that he is going to plant. One is corn, and the other is Nightshade, a deadly plant.
Now, the ground could care less what you plant in it. It will grow the corn just as well as it will grow the nightshade. This happens to be exactly how your mind works.
You can plant in your mind thoughts of success. Or, you can plant in your mind thoughts of failure. It makes know difference to your mind what you plant in it! At the same rate, it will grow your thoughts into reality, whether it be success of failure.
So, if you think about nothing, like so many people do, you will become nothing. If you think about becoming successful, you will become a success. And if you think you are a failure, you will become one. Remember, your mind doesn’t care what gets planted in it. It all goes back to what Earl Nightingale said was the secret to success and failure. We become what we think about!
How To Apply The Strangest Secret
How do we use the strangest secret in order to become successful. We’ll get to that in a minute. But for now, understand that it starts with goals.
If you have no goals, no thoughts of where you want to go, you are going to end up going nowhere! On the other hand, if you set a goal, work a little every day to achieve it, eventually you are going to achieve it!
How many people in this world have goals that are written down? You already know the answer. About 5 out of 100!
It’s absolutely mandatory that you set goals and that you write them down. You must write them down because the simple act of writing down goals is a phenomenon that no one has quite figured out yet. We know it works. But we haven’t figure out how or why! Don’t wait until somebody figures it out. Just do it!
Now that you know the importance of goals, let’s get into the specifics of how we can take maximum advantage of the Strangest Secret…
Earl Nightingale suggests that you take a 30 day trial. After you complete the trial, your life will be changed forever. This is because after 30 days, what you will learn will become a habit. A permanent habit that you can have for the rest of your life.
Here is what he suggests you do. It’s very simple actually. Grab an index card and on one side of it write a goal that you have for yourself. Write the goal and when you want to achieve it.
If your goal is to become a millionaire, write on the index card “I am a millionaire by [insert date].” It can be a year from now. Five years from now. It doesn’t really matter. Here’s why…
A preacher once dreamed of having a million dollars so he could start a new school, and sure enough, during his sermon that Sunday a man walked up to him and wrote him a check for a million dollars! The Illinois Institute of Technology is still around today!
Write down your goal on an index card. Give it a date. Then on the other side of the card write…
Ask, and it shall be given to you.
Seek, and you shall find.
Knock, and it will be opened unto you.
Now, this is what Earl Nightingale suggests that you do. If there is something that you can write that you think will inspire you more, by all means do what is best for you!
However, once you have your flash card made you must do what he suggests next. And that is to read the flash card every night, right before you go to bed. Then read it again the first thing when you wake up. Do this day in and day out for 30 days until it becomes a habit. It’s vitally important that you do this!
The next thing you need to do, for 30 days, is eliminate any negative thoughts from your mind. Don’t think you will reach your goal? Get rid of those thoughts! For the next 30 days, anything is possible! Anything can be done if you put the power of your mind at work.
If have a day where you think negatively, start your 30 day trial over. You must go 30 consecutive days with this positive mindset.
Success is really a simple formula. You set a goal and then you start working towards that goal until it becomes reality. You say to yourself, “I am going to become this and this is how I am going to do it!”
Nothing in this world can stop you. The only limitations you have are the limitations that you set for yourself in your mind.
Take the 30 day test. And if you haven’t yet, listen to the audio recording of The Strangest Secret from the link at the top of the page. Many people started their path towards success by first listening to that recording. It’s a timeless classic that can help you just as much now as it would have when it was first recorded.
Important Note: I have strongly suggested that you start listening to The Strangest Secret. I’ve made it very clear how important I think it is. But guess what? For every 100 people that read this article, guess how many will listen to it? You’re right. About 5%. Will you be one of them?
