10 Rules for the Science of Success


Are there really 10 rules to the science of success?

There are many people who believe the answer is yes and I am one of them. I honestly believe that what we think about, we bring about and that we seek out what it is we want.

Andrew Carnegie had 10 Rules he believed led to success. A “scientific formula” that helped people achieve great things. He invited Napoleon Hill to investigate these principles and he ended up writing the best-selling book, “Think and Grow Rich.”

Here are the 10 Rules:

1. Define your purpose.

Create a plan of action and start working toward it immediately.

2. Create a “master-mind alliance.”

Contact and work with people “who have what you haven’t,” Hill says.

3. Go the extra mile.

“Doing more than you have to do is the only thing that justifies raises or promotions, and puts people under an obligation to you,” writes Hill.

4. Practice “applied faith.”

Believe in yourself and your purpose so fully that you act with complete confidence.

5. Have personal initiative.

Do what you have to without being told.

6. Indulge your imagination.

Dare to think beyond what’s already been done.

7. Exert enthusiasm.

A positive attitude sets you up for success and wins the respect of others.

8. Think accurately.

In Hill’s words, accurate thinking is “the ability to separate facts from fiction and to use those pertinent to your own concerns or problems.”

9. Concentrate your effort.

Don’t become distracted from the most important task you are currently facing.

10. Profit from adversity.

Remember that “there is an equivalent benefit for every setback,” Hill writes.

Are you familiar with the 10 Rules for success? Do agree with them?
