The 10 Laws of Self Improvement

     What does it really take to change your life?

Let me begin by giving you a little background. Here are some guidelines, what I like to call the pre-Laws of Self Improvement:

--- There is no single book, tape, seminar, expert or system that will work equally well for everybody.
--- There is no master plan for everybody. We are all unique.
--- There is no panacea (a remedy for all diseases, evils or difficulties; a cure-all).
--- There are many people with products and information that can help you.
--- There are a lot of books, tapes, and programs out there that will provide you with very little benefit.

Now let me share with you some ideas that I believe will stick with you throughout your time as a Self Improvement seeker.

The following are ten steps or "Laws" you can use as you scan the aisles, check the Web sites and read the books trying to improve your life. For each of these "Ten Laws," I have included quotes that support that belief from a variety of experts in the field of Self Improvement and beyond.

The Ten Laws of Self Improvement Are as Follows:

#1: Thou Shalt Take Responsibility for Your Life

Les Brown: "Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else."

#2: Thou Shall Take Action

Jack Canfield "Everything you want is out there waiting for you to ask. Everything you want also wants you. But you have to take action to get it."

#3: Thou Shall Have Desire

Napoleon Hill: "Desire is the starting point of all achievement."

#4: Thou Shall Set Goals

Tony Robbins: "Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible."

#5: Thou Shalt Create a Plan

Mark Victor Hansen: "The majority of people meet with failure because they lack the persistence to create new plans to take the place of failed plans."

#6: Thou Shalt Pay the Price

Vince Lombardi: "The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand."

#7: Thou Shalt Have Persistence

Orison SwettMarden: "There is genius in persistence. It conquers all opposers. It gives confidence. It annihilates obstacles. Everybody believes in a determined man. People know that when he undertakes a thing, the battle is half won, for his rule is to accomplish whatever he sets out to do."

#8: Thou Shalt Believe

Denis Waitley: "If you believe you can, you probably can. If you believe you won't, you most assuredly won't. Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad."

#9: Thou Shalt Learn From Thy Mistakes

Oprah Winfrey: "There are no failures, only lessons to be learned."

#10: Thou Shalt Create A Clear Picture of Your Future and Visualize It

Robert L Schwartz: "The entrepreneur is essentially a visualizer and an actualizer. He can visualize something, and when visualizes it he sees exactly how to make it happen."
