A personal success plan and tribute to Paul J. Meyer

Paul J. Meyer was gifted with strong parents who shaped him to become a man of success. Paul became a man of persuasion, a gifted teacher, coach, and philanthropist. And clear to everyone who knew him, or heard him, he was a man of enthusiastic action.

Paul J. Meyer might have come up with the shortest and sharpest success plan ever written:

"Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe and enthusiastically act on, must inevitably come to pass!" -Paul J. Meyer

Below is Paul J. Meyer's five point "Personal Success Plan," that if taken to heart, and followed, could surely be worth a million dollars.

The Personal Success Plan by Paul J Meyer

1. Crystallize your thinking – Determine what specific goal you want to achieve. Then dedicate yourself to its attainment with unswerving singleness of purpose, the trenchant zeal of a crusader.

2. Develop a plan for achieving your goal, and a deadline for its attainment – Plan your progress carefully; hour by hour, day by day, month by month. Organized activity and enthusiasm are the wellsprings of your power.

3. Develop a sincere desire for the things you want in life – A burning desire is the greatest motivator of every human action. The desire for success implants "success consciousness," which in turn creates a vigorous and ever-increasing "habit of success."

4. Develop supreme confidence in yourself and your own abilities – Enter every activity without giving mental recognition to the possibility of defeat. Concentrate on your strengths instead of your weaknesses... on your powers, instead of your problems.

5. Develop a dogged determination to follow through on your plan, regardless of obstacles, criticism, or circumstances or what other people say, think or do – Opportunities never come to those who wait; they are captured by those who dare to attack.

Paul J. Meyer was a man who searched diligently for the keys to success in life and made it his purpose to reach the world with his life changing message of prosperity and a rewarding life. Thank you sir for leaving such a legacy.

Paul J. Meyer is included in the Success Masters Hall of Fame.
