How to Eliminate the Possibility of Failure and Make All the Money You Want

by Tony Papajohn

Do you know the surest way to eliminate the possibility of failure?

It’s not:

  • Careful planning.
  • Attention to detail.
  • Minimizing risk.
  • Maximizing strengths.

Of course, these are important.

And they go a long way towards turning any project into success and money.

However, here are two steps that make the previous list work:

  • Build confidence.
  • Neutralize anything that might cause you to doubt yourself.

Taken together, foresight and an empowered mind will virtually reduce the probability of failure to zero.


  • You are ready for anything, expected or otherwise.
  • You will execute your plans with maximum poise, flair, and sense of purpose.

On the other hand, suppose you:

  • Plan carefully.
  • Pay attention to the necessary details.
  • Minimize risk.
  • Maximize your strengths.

These steps:

  • Are a great start.
  • Show a lot of foresight.

However, what happens if you:

  • Are struggling with self-doubt?
  • Second-guessing yourself?
  • Tentative in executing your plan?

Then all your careful preparation might turn out for naught even though it:

  • Minimizes your chances of failure.
  • Maximizes your chances of success.

In a sense, even your most careful plans are only as good as your mental and emotional wherewithal about carrying then out.

So here is how to use your careful planning to maximum advantage.

Suppose you have maximized your chances of success in a given money-making project. This project can be as grand as making $1,000,000 in a year or bite-size as making your next trade a successful one.

Let’s say you:

  • Do the necessary homework.
  • Devise a good plan.
  • See to any and all necessary details.
  • Have a good idea of what might go wrong and how you will respond.
  • Arrange your activities so that you can take advantage of your greatest strengths.

Here’s what to do:

  • Take a deep breath.
  • Elevate your gaze as if you are looking at an imaginary point just above a distant horizon.
  • Call to mind a time when you felt a great sense of poise and radiant confidence.
  • Let your imagination form a picture of this wonderful experience.
  • See this scene as if through your own eyes.
  • Make this image bright and colorful.
  • Make the details clear and crisp.
  • See the image get larger as if you moved from the back row of a movie theater to the front row.
  • Set the image in motion as if seeing a movie.
  • Let your imagination fill in the sounds, sensations, thoughts, and feelings that you would expect if the event was happening in real time.
  • Feel that wonderful sense of confidence that you felt in that moment.

Even if this powerful memory and the confidence it generates has nothing to do with money, you can:

  • Apply this confidence to your money-making activity.
  • Mentally practice executing your plan with that same confidence.
Now see yourself dealing with expected and unexpected challenges without a trace of doubt, apprehension, or misgiving.

Sense how this great faith in yourself virtually assures a successful outcome and a big payday.

Therefore, although you can do many things to make success as certain as possible, the most important thing you can do is:

  • Build confidence.
  • Neutralize anything that might cause you to doubt yourself.

It’s the surest way to:

  • Eliminate the possibility of failure.
  • Make all the money you want.
