Giving Yourself Permission To Succeed Massively

Copyright (c) 2006-2022

On September 29th, 2006, I logged onto the Internet, read a few negative posts on several online discussion forums, and decided that I'd earn one million dollars over the next 90 days. I decided to do this, and to document it, to demonstrate that you really can do anything that you give yourself permission to accomplish.

To back myself into a corner, I publicly declared that this was what I was going to do. This set in motion a success principle that not many people understand. Merely stating an intention, with a firm conviction, causes "things" to align to make it happen.

Publicly declaring that you will do something, and firmly believing that you will, causes your subconscious mind to begin working ceaselessly on figuring out "the how."

I honestly had no idea HOW I was going to do this, and that's where you come into the picture. I invite you along as it all unfolds. In fact, I invite you to make a conviction to allow success to happen massively in your life.

If you'd like to follow along as I document my thoughts and actions, you can at: http://MillionDollar90Days.com/results/ I will not go into minute details there, but will paint a broad-brush picture for you.

What does it take for you or I to give ourselves permission to succeed massively anyway?

For most of us, it takes a radical shift in thinking. This is especially true if we had no role models in our developmental years who were major successes.

The first step in achieving massive success is believing that it's possible. One of the easiest ways to achieve that is to study, and read about, those who have actually accomplished what you hope to achieve.

The second step, is to believe that YOU can achieve it, and that you deserve to. It's fairly easy to believe that others can accomplish incredible things. We only need to glance at rockets venturing into space, or the magic of the internet, to see what others can do. It's a major leap though to believe that we can accomplish such marvelous feats ourselves.

Even after we believe that we can do it, we have to "get over" feeling that it's "not right" for us to have major success. For many of us, our upbringings instilled in us the deep-seated belief that some things like having massive wealth, is inherently wrong. My grandmother, who loved me dearly, often reminded me that "money is the root of all evil." This is far from what the Bible, that she unintentionally misquoted, actually says :-)


To get to step two, you need to develop what "serial millionaire," Lisa Diane calls "The Million Dollar Mindset." You can download a free MP3 recording on how you develop this mindset from her website at: http://UnderAMillionairesWings.com

This MP3, which has inspired many, is scheduled to be taken down in a few days so grab it now.

A third necessary step that is absolutely essential is that you get over "excusitis" and "blameitis." Rationalizing that others can do it because of unique advantages is really unfounded.

Take a few minutes and actually study the backgrounds of some of the leading Internet markets. You can do this by reading or listen to audio interviews of them at: http://InSearchOfHeroes.com

When you study those that you think had unique advantages, you'll discover ordinary people who suffered from depression, addictions, homelessness, suicidal tendencies, gang involvement, bankruptcy, being fired, being shot, business failures, and dozens of other challenging human conditions.

When you really examine the backgrounds of those who have succeeded massively, and that you therefore feel somehow owe you a helping hand, you'll discover people who sometimes put in 80 to 100 hour work weeks routinely. You'll discover people who simply Wanted it bad enough to put in the effort.

Giving yourself permission to succeed massively often means adjusting your attitude. That's usually the first requirement. After that, it means committing to taking massive, massive action.

It also means not ever considering the possibility of giving up. Temporary setbacks are always a possibility, but quitting can never be an option.

If you feel ready for the challenge, I invite you to give yourself permission to succeed massively. If you want to wait until you see how I do it, that's fine too. However, I've just told you HOW I plan on accomplishing it.

Right now - you only need to give yourself permission, and then allow your marvelous minds (conscious and subconscious) to show you how.

One of the saddest things that I witness day after day is affiliate marketers who really struggle to make sales.
