Great chievement!

"Ability is the positive thoughts on the job to deliver to you the things you desire ."

- Earl Prevette -Best Selling Author

The word success mean different thing to people, but success is the the ability to have what you want. For one person it could be the joy of having assurance of whee the next meal will come form. For the other person it could be the successful completion of a multi-billion deal. Either way in any successful outcome there is the fulfillment of desire, turning of idea to reality and .contribution to meeting need through providence.

As human beings we often neglected an invisible thread to success,and that is in the realms of idea and thought. I read a story in the internet recently about a young man called William KamKwamba. He was unable to pursue his studies because his parents were poor. They could not afford to pay his school fees, which was about $60. He was deep in thought and and started to ask difficult but important questions to how best to make use of the natural resource in his environment; which was wind. He discovered that wind can be used to construct windmill and the device can generate electricity. He became very curious as to how this could be possible -generating electricity from wind. he then went to the library to borrow books and from his research he taught himself to build windmill. He built the first one, which was used not very good but a second prototype followed; and he was able to generaste electricity from the device. William instantly became an overnight success but in term of what he achieved it is not that simple.

My reason for this assertion is that people will usually see the tangible aspect of a successful outcome. However, before the tangible was manifested there is the fundamental part of slaving in thought. This process goes on and on in the mind. It is within and no one seem to see it except the person who has the desire to bring thought or idea into reality. There is also the period of agonizingly wait, where the individual is toiling with mastery of allowing the thoughts, feelings and actions necessary to give birth to the idea: turning idea to ideal via effective action.

The most important path to success is the ability to use the mind to achieve his desire. Desire is possibility seeking expression, or function seeking performance. The ability to harness and manage desire is possible through creating an effective plan that will put the desire into a form to give body to the thought. Having a plan is just the beginning, you need to set a process in motion to realize the plan. Moreover you need to have faith to see your plan through. The imagination to visualize its achievement and welcome it form afar. Repetition to constantly review and amend the plan if need be. There is the need for confident determination followed by persistence to see it through.This requires effective action..

Wallace D Wattle reasoned that: "By thought the things you want is brought to you, by action you receive it."

It does seem to me that for thought to be effectual in order that desire be met; effective and practical action is necessary. There in lies the science and art of success "what to think and how to think. ". . .

In the case of William in the introduction, he had a desire and that was the focus of his thought. Moreover according to him he figured out through researching in books how to go about turning his idea to reality. He carried out action but constantly was focused to achieve his dream. He became a success and was celebrated by the world media. They gave him the opportunity to travel to USA to share his experience with experts in the area of generating electricity through renewable energy via wind mill technology.

.Developing your thinking will give you the ability to expand your means. There is a gap between your potential and performance. Good thinking is that gap. If thinking is an operating skill then intelligence is a potential. According to Edward de Bono "Thinking is the operating skill through which intelligence acts upon experience.

Intelligence according to Earl Prevette.intelligence is the capacity and ability to size up yourself, size up your environment and to organize them into a workable plan that you may share life's abundance.

William did exactly that: he did not consider the lack in present environment but rather sought as to how to effectively apply the resource in his environment into wealth so as to benefit others. He did not change his environment but rather changed his thinking and his conditions change for the good.

For thinking to be effective it must be put into a form or body to represent - plan , Then devise practical action to make the plan come to reality. It is a journey with great rewards in terms of the new person you come, new skills and abilities you acquire as well as rewards from success - MASTERY!

      As a man thinks, so shall he become.

      Every action is preceded by a thought.
