Cartoons to illustrate ‘The Invisible Enemy of Success’ by Mike Litman

February 23, 2009

Just been on Mike Litman’s blog and his latest post really hit the nerve. I drew the first version of the cartoon quite a few years ago and the second one is a slight updated version after reading Mike’s post…

Just too many people at an early age bought into MENTAL JUNK. They accepted limiting, defeating words spoken over them and many have brought that BELIEF into adulthood. Words have IMMENSE power. 25 times more then you can imagine.

The words we BELIEVE and say about ourselves set the limits for our lives. They do. You can’t surpass your words. You just can’t. Also, many have voids in their life because words WEREN’T SPOKEN. (You needed to hear something years ago, though it was never spoken.) You have to NOW speak these words into yourself. (I call this -Power Speak-)

Something Great Is Going To Happen To me Today!

Something Great Is Going To Happen To me Today!

“Something great is going to happen to me today.” “I have a winning personality and people are drawn to me.” “I expect people to want to help me reach my goals.”“Making money is simple and easy.” (Too many people buy into the “Money is hard” mindset) All day you should be saying: “You have what it takes.” “Great things are about to happen to me.” Guard your mind. Stop letting defeating words into your life. Words will crush you or lift you’ve higher then you’ve EVER imagined.

Be a Life Champion Like George Foreman

February 11, 2009

I’m on Bob Proctor’s email list and this came in a few days ago – I thought it was worth showing you…

Nearly 100 million George Foreman Grills have sold since 1995 and George Foreman is now one of the most highly paid and recognized celebrity endorsers in the world. But his life is not one of just business success. Foreman is also a community leader, father, husband, world-champion boxer and—best yet—his life has meaning.

Apply Foreman’s philosophies for success in your life:

1.    Belief: “You have to have something you believe in. It could be someone you believe in, too. But at least have something you believe in and you cannot be talked out of by dollars and cents.”

2.    Integrity: “You must preserve the quality of your name, your integrity. You don’t want to lie about anything. And it’s something that people will be happy about once they get to know you. Because people count on you.”

Sales champion!

Sales champion!

3.    Sales: “Learn to sell and you’ll never starve.”

4.    Resilience: “You’re going to fail if you do enough business. But you can always come back because you’ve got some integrity, and people need that.”

5.    Persistence: “It may take a year, it may take three or four years, but you’re going to hit something so you have something to put on the table for your family.”

6.    Legacy: “You want to leave something, you really do. I mean, in the end, statues and all those things, they don’t mean anything. Leave something that we’re all going to benefit from.”

A – Z of Positive Thinking…Part 4

D is for Determination!

D is for Determination!

Here’s part 4 of my A-Z of Positive Thinking images series. (I redrew this and coloured it up a few years later – so you might have seen it before!)

And a few of my other favourite Determination quotes:

Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.”                                                                                                 Gail Devers

We must remember that one determined person can make a significant difference, and that a small group of determined people can change the course of history. Sonia Johnson

The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.
Vince Lombardi

B is for BELIEF!

B is for BELIEF!

B is for BELIEF!

A while ago I posted A is for Action – then totally forgot about the others I had on file. So I’m digging them out and will be posting them over the next few days. These were from a small collections of cartoons I did for a magazine here in the UK years ago called SUCCESS TODAY , it was short lived and folded before I got to the letter ‘I’. Shame – I loved that magazine!

Here’s a few BELIEF quotes that I liked:

To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe. Anatole France

Believe nothing just because a so-called wise person said it. Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held. Believe nothing just because it is said in ancient books. Believe nothing just because it is said to be of divine origin. Believe nothing just because someone else believes it. Believe only what you yourself test and judge to be true. [paraphrased] Buddha

Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe. Gail Devers

Getting good out of a bad situation!

December 20, 2008

dougdissoutWhile searching around for a cartoon to illustrate an article on ‘turning bad situations into good ones’ I came across this cartoon I did in 1999. I started a series called ‘Manic Motivators’. Let me know what you think? Was it a good title for a motivational cartoons feature? Is it something worth resurrecting?

Good coming out of Bad!

Cartoon to illustrate…If you think you are beaten, you are!

January 17, 2008

Earl Nightingale said ‘You become what you think about’…
Napoleon Hill said ‘ What ever the mind of man can conceive and believe it can achieve’ And now, in the poem ‘The Victor’ by C W Longenecker another example of how to get our thinking processes working for us rather than against us.

If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you like to win but think you cant,
It’s almost a cinch you wont.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost.
For out in the world we find
Success begins with a fellow’s will.
It’s all in the state of mind.Runners with lack of belief!
