6 ways to get a 20% raise


神 爱 你,并 且 为 你 的 生 命 有 一 奇 妙 的 计 划。https://bradstanton.com/2012/05/27/does-confidence-make-a-difference/

Is it possible for you to get out of debt, have extra money for your family and have an extra $40,000 to give away to help orphans around the world? Yes it is.

A man named Napoleon Hill spent years studying 500 of the most successful people in the world. He found that certain qualities were important to create success, influence and financial freedom. I can’t write about all of the things he found in this blog post, but I dedicate this blog to sharing what I found from Hill and other great leaders such as Edison, Einstein, Lincoln, Jesus and others. If you spend at least 5 minutes a day reading motivational material, it will help you become more successful in relationships, career and your goals and dreams.

Chuck Yeager was the first man in the world to fly faster than the speed of sound. Many people said it was impossible for man to break the sound barrier. Many had tried and found the airplane they flew began to vibrate terribly. Some were even torn apart and the pilots killed. But Yeager had faith that it could be done. After a horse riding accident he was suffering severe pain due to broken ribs, but he climbed into the airplane to break the sound barrier. When he reached 700 miles an hour, the airplane was vibrating violently. That was the time that many pilots had lost faith and pulled back on the power to slow the plane down. But Yeager had unshakeable faith—a trait that is very difficult to find. He kept flying and broke the sound barrier, passing through into smooth, calm flight.

If you are going to raise your income 20% and become financially able to give lots of money to help others, you will have to have a lot of faith. It probably won’t happen overnight, or maybe even in a year. But if you keep believing and stay persistent in your plans, you can make it happen.

Here are six of the steps Hill found was important to achieve success.

1. Fix in your mind the exact goal you desire. It is not sufficient merely to say, “I want success.” Be definite as to what that means to you. (There is a psychological reason for definiteness which was described in earlier posts).

2. Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the goal you desire. (There is no such reality as “something for nothing.”)

3. Establish a definite plan date when you intend to possess the goal you desire.

4. Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire, and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.

5. Write out a clear, concise statement of what you intend to acquire, name the time limit for its acquisition, state what you intend to give in return for it, and describe clearly the plan through which you intend to achieve it.

6. Read your written statement aloud, twice daily, once just before sleeping at night, and once after arising in the morning. AS YOU READ–—SEE AND FEEL AND BELIEVE YOURSELF ALREADY IN POSSESSION OF THE GOAL. It is very important to FEEL it!

It is important that you follow the instructions described in these six steps. It is especially important that you observe, and follow the instructions in the sixth paragraph. You may complain that it is impossible for you to “see yourself in possession of a goal” before you actually have it. Here is where a BURNING DESIRE will come to your aid. If you truly DESIRE money so keenly that your desire is an obsession, you will have no difficulty in convincing yourself that you will acquire it. The object is to want money, and to become so determined to have it that you CONVINCE yourself you will have it.

A success story: “Hamdi Ulukaya borrowed $1 million to buy an 85-year-old factory in upstate New York, came up with a new recipe for an ancient product and took on Fortune 500 giants in a consumer category that most experts figured was locked up.

Five years after selling the first case of his Greek-style yogurt, Chobani, in October 2007, Ulukaya reached $1 billion in annual revenue. This kind of growth is unheard of, particularly for a startup, in the packaged-goods business—and rare in the tech world.” From Fortune news.






  1. Thank you for sharing these notes from the Professional Gathering sesison! I was very sorry not to have been able to attend and I appreciate hearing more about what was discussed.I think this is an important topic and wonder if we may want to re-visit at a future Professional Gathering or at the Conference. I would love to hear if and how other organizations are working on cultural compentency.

  2. It sounds like you all had a great civoersatnon and a lot of valuable thoughts. Thanks so much for sharing. I like the idea of having a monthly civoersatnon with volunteers and bring some of these issues into that civoersatnon.I also thought what Patrick shared about the three catagories of skills to build on: self-awareness, knowledge of others, and understanding of priviledge, power and oppression was interesting.

  3. In the corporate world, part of this process is called SMART goals. The part never discussed was the FEELING part. My goal to become a royalty-paid, famous author has everything but a timeline. Thanks for the reminder. Barbara
