Ryan McLean : Slightly Unconventional

One Billion Dollars

My BHAG: One Billion Dollars!

Been reading a book by Napoleon Hill (the guy who wrote Think and Grow Rich) and currently the book is talking about the power of concentration.

That is the power of focusing your mind completely and singularly on one goal with complete enthusiasm and belief that you will attain this goal. The idea is that by concentrating so intently on this one thing you are training your subconscious mind to find ways to bring it to reality.

Just like when you are buying a new car. All of a sudden you see that same car everywhere on the road. This is because your subconscious mind looks out for that car.

By using the power of concentration you are training your subconscious mind to look out for ways to turn what you are concentrating on into physical form.

I found myself asking “What is it I want to concentrate on?”

I came up with a few things like
– $1,000/week in online income
– Owning an investment property
– Owning my own home

But I found that these smaller goals didn’t allow me to concentrate on them with even a fraction of enthusiasm. Because let’s face it, although they are damn good goals…they are exciting. They don’t grab you by the balls and say “Let’s do it”.

So after watching the movie “A Social Network” last night and seeing people working in the Billions of dollars I figured why not concentrate on attaining a net worth of $1 Billion. This has always been my desire, but I figured I would check it out in the future.

But maybe I should start concentrating on it now and train my subconscious mind to find me ways to reach the one billion dollar mark. It may be impossible but it is something I can get excited about and focus my enthusiasm on.

Shoot for the moon and if you miss you will find yourself amongst the stars. Maybe I will miss a billion dollars, but I might still find myself on the Australia’s 200 richest people list 🙂
