Mentor Catherine Newton shares secret to success in new book

Award-winning mentor Catherine Newton shares secret to success in Think and Grow Rich Today

The keys to a highly successful life are commitment, enthusiasm and persistence, says international award-winning success mentor and motivational speaker Catherine Newton in her new book Think and Grow Rich Today.

In Think and Grow Rich Today, which she co-authored, Catherine outlines how she went from being newly divorced and a single mother who wondered if she would ever discover her life purpose to the successful entrepreneur she is today by identifying her desire, following her passion and never giving up.

Her path to the top included taking a gamble by investing everything she had into her business. Anyone who has done that will relate to the trust and tenacity that takes!

“There was a period of time where I was going through money like it was going out of fashion, and worried that I would never ‘make it’ as I watched my nest egg dwindle. So I took a risk – I sold my investments and funnelled them into my business. There were times it would have been easier to close up shop and get a J.O.B,” writes Catherine Newton.

“But I held my faith in what I was here to do. You see, I believe each of us has a life purpose that has been pre-programmed in us. By listening to it and allowing our burning desire for it to manifest, to shine through, we can be abundant and wealthy (emotionally and financially) when we live into that purpose.”

It was after attending a Think and Grow Rich conference in Sydney in 2009 that Catherine truly believed anything in life was possible if she put her mind to it.

“From that point on, I held firm in my belief in myself that I could inspire and change people’s lives the way mine had been changed, from single mother to woman on a mission. I held onto the commitment I had made to myself and I never gave up. I stood my ground on what I was worth, I said yes to events, speaking engagements, leading workshops, trainings, writing – everything that was within my genius. I persisted with phone calls, meetings, events and networking – even when chaos, naysayers and discouragers came into my life.”

Today Catherine Newton is highly respected in her field of expertise.

She has spoken to more than 5000 people worldwide on various subjects, including mindset, marketing, business and personal growth.

She is also the founder and chief executive of mentoring, training and coaching firm Catherine Newton International, has written training systems Your Life Enriched, Gain Clarity, Clients and Cash-flow and Your Money Blueprint and has co-authored the best-selling book Over-comers Inc.

In 2011, she was named International Mentor of the Year at the Top One Awards in Los Angeles – a goal that started by writing herself a visionary PR release to say she’d won, with the date of 2011 on it, back in 2008.

Catherine says she has learnt some valuable lessons over the years when it comes to growing, sustaining and building a thriving business.

However, she acknowledges in Think and Grow Rich Today that she wouldn’t be standing where she is today if it wasn’t for her commitment, enthusiasm and persistence.

“These three traits have been my driving force so that even when it felt hard, when things weren’t going my way, or it was taking too long I never gave up.”

Catherine Newton says that a strong desire to achieve can be attributed to the success people such as the late Sir Edmund Hillary, Chicken Soup for the Soul author Jack Canfield and Les Mills CEO Phillip Mills – all of whom she includes in her book – have achieved.

She encourages people in Think and Grow Rich Today to see failures as a learning experience, one which brings them closer to realising their goals.

“There is an interesting phenomenon that occurs when you get persistently serious about reaching your goals in a focused, consistent way and you follow this formula. There’s a reason successful people operate this way… It’s the only way to become successful,” writes Catherine.

Think and Grow Rich Today sees a number of international experts, who have used the timeless principles outlined in Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich to carve out successful business careers, share their knowledge to those looking to turn their lives around.

The book also includes a copy of Hill’s Think and Grow Rich.
