Napoleon Hill and Budgeting Your Time

Napoleon hill and Budgeting Your Time

"Every person who wins in any undertaking must be willing to cut all sources of retreat. Only by doing so can one be sure of maintaining that state of mind known as a burning desire to win - essential to success." Napoleon Hill


Your attitude towards life determines your attitude toward time. People pretty much fall into two camps on this subject.

Doers:
  • Have a definite major purpose
  • Manage circumstances and resources
  • Examine every idea they encounter before they adopt or discard it
  • Takes risks and assume responsibility
  • Learn from their mistakes
  • Go the Extra Mile
  • Control their habits
  • Have a positive Mental Attitude
  • Apply their faith in their own success
  • Create mastermind alliances to expan their knowledge and experience
  • Recognize their weaknesses and take steps to correct them

Drifters:
  • Have no Goal in life
  • Are controlled by circumstances and the lack of resources 
  • Flit from one idea about life to the other, depending on this week's fad or what the guy on TV said last night
  • Run from opportunity and blame others for their lots in life
  • Make the same mistakes again and again
  • Do only what it takes to get by
  • Let their habits control them
  • Have a negative mental attitude
  • Never do anything to improve their situation
  • Learn all they want to know from that guy on TV
  • Wouldn't know a weakness if it bit them
