Rich Habits Word of the Day

Rich Habits Fact of the Day

After Thomas Jefferson died, a member of his family found instructions that Jefferson had left as to what should be placed on his tombstone. Jefferson considered these three accomplishments the most important to him, and he hoped he would be remembered for them.
Jefferson, of course, accomplished much more during his lifetime. He served as colonial and state representative and governor of Virginia; held various public offices, including ambassador and Secretary of State, Vice President, and 3rd President of the United States. He was also instrumental in obtaining the Louisiana Territory for the United States, which doubled the size of the nation, and getting Congress to appropriate funds for the Lewis and Clark Expedition. He was also a noted scientist and inventor and agriculturalist.

Rich Habit Lesson of the Day

This Rich Habits journey I have been on for the past nine plus years has taken me places I never imagined I would go. One such place was Jack Canfield’s Break Through Success training in Arizona last year. Jack is the most successful author in the history of civilization with 1/2 billion books sold. He’s broken so many book records that I would need to write a book to explain what he’s done. One of the things Jack teaches in his book “Success Principles” (http://www.thesuccessprinciples.com) is something called a Victory Log. This is a listing of all of your successes in life. Its purpose is put a stop to the negative self-criticism we all seem to engage in. It’s a tool to stop your conscious mind from beating you up and shifts your thinking from negative back to positive. Positive thinking attracts good things into your life by reprogramming your subconscious postively. Negative thinking attracts bad things into your life by reprogramming your subconscious negatively. So the Victory Log helps shift your thinking from negative to positive as you read through all of the successes in your life. It programs your subconscious to be success-focused and not failure-focused. It’s a psychological pat on the back and it works. Every time you screw up, pull out your Victory Log and begin reading. It will stop you from beating yourself up the rest of the day and prevent you from going negative. Mistakes and failures are nothing more than lessons to be learned. They are not a reflection of your incompetence, lack of education, or some character flaw. They are just things to learn from. The Victory Log help put mistakes and failures in their proper context and keeps you on the path of Prosperity Thinking.
