We must entertain only desirable thoughts (e.g. success, servant leadership, kindness).  We must use only harmonious language.  The Law of Growth tells us this:

Law of Growth:  Whatever we think about grows. What we forget atrophies. 

Knowledge does not apply itself.  Our actions are governed by habit.   This week I refocused on a developing habit, to do at least two kind deeds every day.   It was fun.  Early in the day, I found myself thinking of the goal and seeking to ‘Do It Now’ just to finish the task.  But once the daily requirement was met, I found it easy and fun to do more kind things for more people.

As we previously discovered through the MKMMA course from James Collins:

Greatness is not a function of circumstance. Greatness, it turns out, is largely a matter of conscious choice, and discipline.

What an appropriate conscious choice for this week, kindness.  When you give more, you get more.  Sugar, not vinegar, is the better way to go.  From Og Mandino in The Greatest Salesman in The World:

I will increase my knowledge of mankind, myself, and the goods I sell, thus my sales will multiply. I will practice, and improve, and polish the words I utter to sell my goods, for this is the formulation on which I will build my career and never will I forget that many have attained great wealth and success with only one sales talk, delivered with excellence. Also will I seek constantly to improve my manners and graces, for they are the sugar to which all are attracted.

Be a leader of a movement that inspires you.  Find something worth changing.  It is one of the most kind things you can do.  Check it out:


I am elated to be a Servant Leader who knows, goes and shows the way, and because of this I am very wealthy for life.

I have come so far already.  Today I begin a new life.

It is definitely time to ‘Think and Grow Rich’.
