Hello everyone, fellow wishers, dreamers and travelers to make our dreams a reality.

There is a sentence that made me think of what I did today.  This morning I was cleaning my attic and found some useful items and also some not useful items fit for the garbage.  What is curious about my cleaning today is that all my items reflect a struggle, my struggle to succeed in a career.  I have lots of photographic equipment which is antiquated.  What strikes me is that my dream to succeed in a career was not just a dream or a wish.  I took action.  Well, I was a successful school photographer in that I had a job with Empire Classics for 10 years and earned to pay my mortgage.  So, I didn't so bad, man.  In the other hand, I did not master more skills and frankly I couldn't because my work schedule was variable.  Rough.  I never thought out of the box.  In my opinion I do have the burning desire and definite of purpose.  And at one time I had a written statement which I repeated.  Here is what I am going to do different this time.  I am going to examine the 6 steps in "Desire" and do them but I will do them with the help of my mother.  I want to make $5,000 by December 2018.  I am going to continue learning how to create a landing page using WordPress and will advertise my affiliate business.  I am thinking of doing a video a week and upload to Youtube.   That is as far as I remember the steps.  Let me review them.

First. Fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire.

Second. Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the money you desire.

Third. Establish a definite date when you intend to possess the money you desire.

Fourth. Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire, and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.

Fifth. Write out a clear, concise statement of the amount of money you intend to acquire, name the time limit for its acquisition, state what you intend to give in return for the money, and describe clearly the plan through which you intend to accumulate it.

Sixth. Read your written statement aloud, twice daily, once just before retiring at night, and once after arising in the morning. AS YOU READ—SEE AND FEEL AND BELIEVE YOURSELF ALREADY IN POSSESSION OF THE MONEY.
