Success is not an accident.

Success is not a miracle, nor is it a matter of luck.

Everything happens for a reason, good or bad, positive or negative. When you are absolutely clear about what you want, you only need to copy others who have achieved it before you, and you will eventually get the same results that they have.

This referred to in the Bible as the Law of Sowing and Reaping, which says,

"Whatsoever a man soweth, that also shall he reap."

Sir Isaac Newton called it the third principle of motion. He said, "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction."

For you and me, the most important expression of this universal law is

"Thoughts are causes and conditions are effects."

Put another way, "Thought is creative." Your thoughts are the primary creative forces in your life. You create your entire world by the way you think. All the people and situations in your life have only the meaning you give them by the way you think about them. And when you change your thinking, you change your life, sometimes in seconds!

The most important principle of personal or business success is simply this:

You become what you think about most of the time.

This is the great discovery upon which all religious, philosophies, metaphysics, schools of thought, and theories of psychology are based. This principle is as applicable to individuals and organizations. Whatever you see or experience is the expression of the thinking of the people behind the phenomenon. Ralph Waldo Emerson recognized this when he wrote,

"Every great organization is merely the lengthened shadow of a single man."

It is not what happens to you that determines how you feel and react. It is not the world outside you that dictates your circumstances or conditions. It is the world inside you that creates the conditions of your life.
