This is Action Principle #5 - Submit to a Higher Power
you have chosen to be extraordinary -
this means a personal commitment to WORK harder and smarter and longer -
But - be careful
As you accomplish more and more in business, it is very easy to fall prey to feelings of superiority -
Feelings of superiority are COUNTER PRODUCTIVE to your objectives
As you become richer and more successful - you run the danger of becoming less and less likeable.
As your likeability goes down - your relationships - personal and professional will suffer
Set challenging goals, work hard and be successful while admitting that there will always be people who are richer and smarter than you are -
Submit to a higher power -
By stepping back and being humble you do NOT lose personal power;
it enhances your confidence -
Being relaxed and open and humble and down to earth -
grounded in your humanness is attractive -
and will attract -
People who want to be your friends
Employees who want to work for you
Customers who want to do business with you -
Believe that there is a God called Yahweh or Allah or Jesus or Buddha
To please God, common to all religions, live by the Golden Rule -
to do unto others as you would have them do unto you -
As a successful but humble person ...
You will smile. Those around you will smile and God will smile.
