Seven Decisions that Determine Personal Success 2

© 2002 Andy Andrews


I will seek wisdom.

Knowing that wisdom waits to be gathered, I will actively
search her out. My past can never be changed, but I can change
the future by changing my actions today.
I will change my actions today!

I will train my eyes and ears to read and listen
to books and recordings that bring about positive changes in
my personal relationships and a greater understanding of
my fellow man. No longer will I bombard my mind with
materials that feed my doubts and fears. I will read and listen
only to that which increases my belief in myself and my future.

I will seek wisdom.

I will choose my friends with care. I am who my friends are.
I speak their language, and I wear their clothes. I share
their opinions and their habits. From this moment forward,
I will choose to associate with people whose lives and lifestyles
I admire. If I associate with chickens, I will learn to scratch at
the ground and squabble over crumbs. If I associate with eagles,
I will learn to soar great heights. I am an eagle.
It is my destiny to fly.

I will seek wisdom.

I will listen to the counsel of wise men. The words of a
wise man are like raindrops on dry ground.
They are precious and quickly used for immediate results.
Only the blade of grass that catches a raindrop
will prosper and grow. The person who ignores wise counsel
is like the blade of grass untouched by the rain
—soon to wither and die.

When I counsel with myself, I can only make decisions
according to what I already know. By counseling with a wise man,
I add his knowledge and experience to my own
and dramatically increase my success.

I will seek wisdom.

I will be a servant to others. A wise man will cultivate
a servant’s spirit, for that particular attribute
attracts people like no other. As I humbly serve others,
their wisdom will be freely shared with me. Often, the person who
develops a servant’s spirit becomes wealthy beyond measure.
Many times, a servant has the ear of the king, and a humble servant
becomes king for he is the popular choice of the people.
He who serves the most grows the fastest.

I will become a humble servant. I will not look for someone
to open my door—I will look to open the door for someone.
I will not be distressed when no one is available to help me—
I will be excited when I am available to help. I will be
a servant to others. I will listen to the counsel of wise men.
I will choose my friends with care.

I will seek wisdom.
