Think and Grow RichThink and Grow RichThe Vista Chamber of Commerce held it’s "Good Morning, Vista" breakfast. The Guest Speaker was Don Sando, Strategic Results Group, speaking on moving from daily fire-fighting to strategic growth.

His reference to Napoleon Hill’s book, Think and Grow Rich!, and the six steps that are key to success:


  • Crystallize your thinking, set a goal; create a vision (that must be were our vision boards come into play ;-))))
  • Create a written plan
  • Develop a sincere desire
  • Acquire expert knowledge
  • Join a Master Mind group
  • Have a dogged determination to follow through

Every once in awhile, it’s nice to be reminded about those six steps. I know I some of them well, and some of them I can improve upon. I do keep my vision board right behind my laptop, where I know I can "visualize" my goals each day.

I also use Subliminal Desktop to rotate my affirmations on my screen throughout my day. There’s a free version, as well as the pro version, which let’s you edit the affirmations.

How do you stay focused on your goals? What tools do you use? Please leave your comments below!
