Self Instructions of Stephen Mitchell.
Book by Tom Hopkins - Official Guide to Success

This is my go-to webpage when I feel anxious, exasperated & any time someone bugs me. It's filled with my life instructions provided by Tom Hopkin's self-help book: The Official Guide to Success.


I don't let stupid things like drugs, alcohol, and negative people control my mind.

I am always seeking new ways to make my life better plus new things to enjoy.

Success is the continuous journey towards the achievement of predetermined worthwhile goals.


Work smart – and as hard as you can without sacrificing alertness.

When someone tries to dump negative thinking on me, I refuse to accept it.

Nobody makes me feel guilty about being successful.

I get people names right by repeating it three times during the first conversation.

I find new ideas to bring to the problem, different directions to work from, and good people to give fresh inspiration.

I am happy & I love my life.

I am always discovering fascinating new things to do.

I stay out of the way of fast moving objects.

I prize my exercise time because it lets me relax and get rid of the day's tension.

I move pace up when I can, but I never go so fast that I break my body muscles.

I use habit to speed routine, not to block out reality.

Before you can attain success, the effort you are making has to be worthy of what you want.


I never get so busy with today's business that I forget about tomorrow. I am a planner, and look ahead. I do the most productive thing possible at every given moment.

I pre-plan my hours, days, months, years and my entire life.

I find my best solutions while I sleep.

In both thought and speech, I choose positive words to describe everything I am in favour of to build my resistance to pessimism.

I do not squander my time – I invest it carefully and intelligently.


I am not afraid to fail. Because that is how I learn. When I fail, I look at what I did right, not at what I did wrong.

I feel good about myself because I always do the best thing possible with my opportunity time.

I never let a negative thought enter my head. I always have clearly defined goals.

My emotions do not control me. I control them.

I know that laughter ranks next to sleep and food as a restorative, so I am always on the lookout for an opportunity to laugh a little.

My well being is in the best hands it could possibly be in: MY OWN.

I LOVE SUCCESS. I enjoy putting in the effort into all my actions, even when there is no profit.

I know where I am going because I have taken the time and trouble to make that decision.

I have a high degree of personal integrity that leads me to put out the extra effort. My persistence is smart, flexible, and inventive.


I get a lot of great ideas because I know what I want, and I keep my subconscious mind loaded with material that allows it to generate them.

I love action. I love doing things. I love achieving. I do all three constantly, joyfully, and successfully.

I say positive because success is positive, and that's the side I want to be on!

I am driving hard for achievement and accomplishment, not just for money.

I always look on the bright side of things – that's just the way I am!
