The Story of Paul J. Mayer
The Million Dollar Personal Success Plan
The Authorized Biography
By Lois S. Strain and Gladys W. Hudson 
[April 20, 2010] I finished reading ‘The Story of Paul J. Meyer’ this morning. Over the last week, I learned a lot from Mr. Meyer and how and where LMI got started 40+ years ago. I felt much settled for my up-coming EPP class at IBM in May. I will tell Mayer’s stories to my coaches.
The book was an old book I purchased form www.amazon.com there years ago, when I started translating EML on August 23, 2007 (from a shipping notes I found from another book by Mr. Meyer which was purchased in the same batch). I guess I was not aware that I got some of the best valuable books at the same, and it took me two years to actually read them. I kept thinking if I would have had read the book a bit earlier, I could have had written to Mr. Meyer. Now he is with God and I wish I will gain more strength from his stories and books to build up a fulfilling career in ‘motivating people to their full potential’ in the next 10 years.
BTW, I asked Guo Jia to copy quotations from the book:
Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire sincerely believe, and enthusiastically act upon must inevitably come to pass.
Though we search the world for friends,
Seeking pleasure, though we wander,
Happiness begins and ends here at home, not over yonder.
Fame may come, or fortune smile, But we always learn, my brother, all we have in life worthwhile is each other.
Not so long the life of man, not so strong the fragile tether; let us spend the time we can, all the time we can, together.
Brother, sister, daughter, son, wife or husband, father, mother----these our wealth, our on
Desire is the dynamic motivation behind every worthwhile purpose,
Desire is the inspiration that keeps the flame of progress burning.

OPPPRTUNITIES never come to those who wait...they are captured by those who dare to Attack.

Confidence in gives you a clear vision of your goal and creates desire that is strong enough to sweep away all obstacles.
Certainly success creates enthusiasm.
Actually, neither can exist alone.
Enthusiasm and job success go hand-in-hand.
Like a machine, you have to be furled with some kind of power to keep running. And the most imp
In every adversity is the seed of an equivalent--or greater--benefit.
Real confidence in yourself is always demonstrated by Act
A common reason for human failure is total disregard for the power of self-motivation.
Successful people are motivated by successful results.
Grow we must...and the dynamics of human growth is change.
Opportunities are everywhere for on
The points of the achievement compass are north, east, south, west and where you are--Now!
Attitudes are nothing more than habits of thought... and habits can be acquired.
Self-motivation is the power that raises you to any level you seek.
Opportunity is not what may come tomorrow, but what we make of today!
The most successful leaders are those who recognize the creative potential of everyone on their team and make productive use of it.
Building Success Attitudes
Eliminate these Add these words
words completely to your vocabulary
1. I can't→ I can
2. If→ I will
3. Doubt→ Expect the best
4. I don't think→ I know
5. I don't have time→ I will make the time
6. Maybe→ Positively
7. I'm afraid→ I am confident
8. I don't believe→ I do believe
9. Minimize “I"→ Promote “You"
If your attitudes include disbelief in yourself, fear, hesitancy, inner conflict, then life will give back to you disbelief, fear hesitancy and conflict.
But if you draw your attitudes from the power of your faith, life will give you the fulfillment of your dreams and ambitions.
We are either the masters or the victims of our attitudes.
It's a matter of personal choice--blessing or curse.
Purpose--Reason for Giving
It Is More Blessed to Give than Receive
"For unto whomsoever much is given of him shall be much required."
“Material gain, in and of itself, is a dead end and a loser's road. Wealth or money is just an extension of your personality. That is a gift that comes from God. It should be like all other talent--the more you pour out, the more you have to pour--the more you give, the more you have to give--the more you share, the more you have to share.”
Paul J. Meyer, Sr.
"The purpose of living is to give, to share, and to multiply yourself mentally, spiritually, and materially."
Paul J. Meyer, Sr.
"As ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them."
"We bring nothing into this world. We take nothing out. We are stewards of what we have to accumulate."
Paul J. Meyer, Sr.
"I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filed and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me."
"Give,and it will be given unto you:good measure,pressed down,shaken together and running over will be put your bosom,For with the same measure that you use,it will be measured back to you. "
