I invite you to join me in creating your own successful future by writing your own success book. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:
Step I. Write Your Personal Mission Statement. Eternity is a long time. If we're lucky, we're on this earth for 100 years, which is the blink of an eye. We'd better figure out how our earthly life fits into the big picture. If you need ideas, I suggest the teachings of Rick Warren and The Purpose Driven Life
Step II. Write Your 10 Year Big Hairy Audacious Goals. If you're going to have goals, you might as well have big goals. It does not cost you any more to create big goals than it does to create small goals. Be inspired by those who create BHAG's based on: This Definition and This Strategy
Step III. Break Down Your BHAG's into One Year SMART Goals. SMART stands for: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-Phased. Use This Worksheet:
Step IV. Each Month, Create Your 30 Day; 80:20 Vilfredo Pareto Goal to Action Worksheet The Pareto Principle states that 80% of our results come from 20% of our efforts. You must focus on that 20% of your actions that deliver the 80% of your results.
Step V. Implement 52 Week Networking Success Strategies, one per week for the next year based on The Book: The 29% Solution by Ivan Misner. This is one of the best Networking Books written. If you implement these strategies, you simply cannot fail.
Step VI. Meet a Personal Trainer and Create Your Personal Workout Plan (including 2 Yoga classes per week). 3 Cardios; 2 Strength; 2 Yoga = You're rockin'
Step VII. Get a Grip on Your Personal Financial Picture, based on the Worksheets Found Here
Step VIII. Find, Write, and Speak Loudly and Often Several Positive Daily Affirmations based on the teachings of The Pitbull of Personal Development, and my hero, Larry Winget
