A Honed & Heavy Axe

Have you ever come across this statistic?

=> Statistics show that up to 95% of businesses fail within the first 5 years, and of those survive, 95% of them fail in the next 5 years.
Does it look scary? Why? Why is the number so huge? Where is the failure rate so high? Do you know why the failure rate for businesses is so high?

Because it's unlike driving. Well if you want to drive, you need to have a drivers' license? If you want one, what did you have to go through in order for you to earn the right to go on the road?

You need to pass a driving test (theory as well as practical). First, you had to go through the theory and practical courses. Until you become proficient, then you go through a driving test and they will give you a drivers' license.

Now, if the Government decided to change this rule and say every single one of you, you can drive on the road. It doesn't matter whether you have a drivers' license or not, you can just drive any vehicle you want on the road. What will happen then?

There will be a lot of accidents and tragic deaths being reported all over in the news. Once you hear about a lot of accidents and tragic deaths, you will begin to think that driving is Dangerous!

But that is exactly what is going on in the business world!

In legal terms, in order for you to start a business, do you need to go through learning first? NO! Anyone (any Tom, Dick & Harry) can register a company, as long as you're of legal age. You don't need to go through any learning to start a business. That is why there are so many accidents.

Does that make sense so far?
But now, if we were to change the law, and now every single one of you, need to go through an approved entrepreneur program, where you learn

- How To Shift From An Employee Mindset To An Entrepreneur Mindset?
- How To See Things Differently (Victor mindset)?
- How To Spot And Seize Good Opportunities?
- How To Start and operate an profitable Business?
- How To Build A Teamwork?
- and so on...

If you had to go through all these learning, and they give you a certificate/diploma,
What do you think? Will this number drop dramatically?

What we want to share with you is this:
There is an inverse correlation between Education and Risk. The more education you have in one particular area, the less risky it is for you.

For example, do you think business is risky?
Consider this!
For example Warren Buffet (the world richest) - do you think the stock market is his game?
He's very educated in equities, so for him, his risk is low.

So, anything you get educated about is less risky.

The world is our playground.
The ME I see is the ME I will be!

As A Man Thinketh

As A Man Thinketh
The Timeless Classic, of James Allen

Why you do what you do?

Where do we learn to make money? Do we have a manual? We came naked!
We learn by, when we are young until adults;

What we hear?
What we see?
Specific incidence!

If you program in your mind have problems, what can we do?

As A Man Thinketh is partly responsible for the creation of the entire personal development industry. Most contemporary PD authors and teachers credit this little book for providing foundation to their principles. It is a set of philosophical musings on the power of our thoughts. Earl Nightingale, widely regarded as the father of modern day personal development, in his best-selling recording, called the ideas in this book, "The Strangest Secret". The secret, he said, is "we become what we think about".

What others say about As A Man Thinketh

"I have personally read As a Man Thinketh over 25 times. Timeless material." -
Mark Victor Hansen, co-author, the Chicken Soup books

“I read As a Man Thinketh once a year for over 15 years when I was in my 20s and 30s.” -
Paul J. Meyer, recognized as one of the leading self-improvement authors of all time

“Some books are so good and meaningful that you read them again and again. Primarily because you know the substance and content is so important that you need to be reminded of what it has to say. As A Man Thinketh, by James Allen is just such a book.” -
Book Review, Michigan Chronicle

"Beyond the New Testament, the Old Testament and other books documenting the beliefs of the greatest religions of the world, there is one little book that impacted my life dramatically during my formative teenage years. The book is As A Man Thinketh, the most widely written by James Allen, who might be likened to the Norman Vincent Peale or Earl Nightingale of the late 1800's." -
Denis Waitley, author of The Psychology of Winning, the best selling audio program in the world.

Dear Friend,

I can still remember the excitement I felt as the words from “this little volume” worked deep into the fabric of my injured spirit.

Hello, I am Handsome Wong and I appreciate you stopping by our site.

I know what it’s like to be searching. I know what it’s like for “the bottom to fall out.” Between 1994-1997, I experienced more “character building” days than any other time of my life. Because my earlier success in life had been based on a foundation of misguided principles, I now faced severe personal challenges on several fronts of my life. During that time I moved in and out of a deep depression. While I never totally despaired, it was knocking at my door. I now understood what the saint meant by the “dark night of the soul.”

Two books saved my life and both books came into my possession in an off-handed way. At a garage sale my former wife purchased a copy of “Make Your Life Worthwhile”, by the late Emmet Fox, because “it looked like a book you’d be interested in.” Several years earlier I had purchased a big bundle of books at a discount book sale and buried in the bundle, to be fully discovered later, was James Allen’s “As A Man Thinketh.”

When I picked it off my bookshelf and began to read it, I couldn’t put it down. I read it through in one sitting, which isn’t too hard to do. The first time through I highlighted the key thoughts. On my second reading I began to underline additional passages that suddenly jumped off the page. By the third reading it was a marked up mess, testifying to the tremendous distillation of wisdom that Allen leaves with us. There is an oft-used expression “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” There is no doubt I was ready, and there is no doubt that James Allen was to be my teacher. I had a child-like feeling of discovery. That feeling, a satisfaction, that comes with encountering something new and delicious. In short, “it clicked.”

I now understood how I was going to change my destiny. And, more importantly, I now knew and believed that I was in total control of that destiny. I could sense power where I had felt weakness against the onrushing torrent of negative circumstances.

I have dramatically turned my life in an exciting direction. I have enjoyed more success and happiness in the last few years than in my entire life combined. All of the resources recommended on this site have been personally used by me and they are resources that have brought me to this point in my journey.

I hope As A Man Thinketh will have an impact on your life and I hope you’ll return often to our website.

I look forward to walking the path together.

All that a man achieves or fails to achieve, is the direct results of his own thoughts!
