Failing to plan is planning to fail

A thought is like a seed planted in the ground in that it brings back a crop after its kind, multiplies, and grows, therefore is dangerous to allow the mind to hold any thought which is destructive. The ability to think means we can create anything we put our minds to. That is what makes us different from other species.


The thing is you must nurture the mind to stay positive and to think about what you want rather than what you don’t want.

Planning your future and being clear on what you want is where it all starts and the more fun you have with this process the more creative you will become and the more you will create.


Napoleon Hill the greatest self-help author studied a wide range of successful people in the early 1900s. He then wrote the very well-known Think and Grow rich. One of the principles he suggests everybody who wants to be successful should follow is organized planning.

What Hill wrote about in early 1900 is now confirmed using technology in neuroscience. It is showing us the importance of being creative, nurturing our thoughts, and taking action toward our dreams.


Benjamin Franklin's quote: “By failing to plan, you are preparing to fail” is very similar to what Winston Churchill said: “He who fails to plan is planning to fail”. Two great world leaders who knew a lot about success against adversity.


I know this is easier said than done. I get that you are busy and that you cannot just drop everything that is on your plate right now. That you have tried to make changes, but it just did not work. I also get that you have responsibilities and other people to consider. I also know that

The best thing to do when facing adversity is to start and do as much as you can at the moment.

Keep on adjusting and before you know it you will find a new rhythm and it will become easier.


Another great author who did a lot of research on successful people in the early 1900s is Napoleon Hill, the famous author of Think and Grow Rich.

He said “the most


intelligent individual cannot succeed in accumulating money or any other undertaking without plans which are practical and workable.

The biggest gift you can give yourself is to understand how others created their wealth. Once you add these different ideas to your thinking and when you take a bit of time to create stillness for your mind to create a solution you will find the way that works for you.


I would like to leave you with a very well know example:

Thomas A Edison “failed” 10 000 times before he perfected the incandescent electric light bulb.


Henry Ford accumulated a fortune, not because of his superior mind, but because he adopted and follow a PLAN.


I hope I have motivated you to at least think about your own plan to create the life you want and deserve!! Whether it is in your personal or business life!!
