You have been given one magical wish . . .
A mainstream blogger once asked the question of thousands of their readers, “If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be?”. Here are a few of the answers:
If you could change one thing in the world today what would it be?
- I’d make it so people would actually love other people. That would end all heartbreak, crime, war, lawsuits, abuse. Everything. It’s a lack of love that causes it in the first place.
- Stop War all over the world
- War and pedophiles
- I would remove politics from the world. Every problem would be solved instantly
- No more hunger
All good answers, but unfortunately, most are nothing more than magical wishes – beyond our control, or ability to really make happen. Who wouldn’t change world hunger if they could, or stop all wars? If we had that one wish from the Jeanie in the bottle, we would all make good use of it! But there is no Jeanie in the bottle, at least not in my house.
Now if you did have just one thing you could change, and possessed the ability to make it happen, the talent, the knowledge, the means, what would that be? And what kind of long term effect would it have on your life and business? Did you know that CHANGING ONE THING is all that is necessary in order to bring about a magical effect into your life? CHANGING ONE THING can reinvent your own reality and thus the reality of those around you. No Jeanie in the bottle necessary!
Ok, so how? Is there a formula that successful and powerful people use to make things happen? The answer of course is yes. There are numerous “formulas” that you can use to set and achieve your goals for the rest of your life – and all have a few common denominators. From my experience, I know that successful people are masters of their time and their actions, their mind and their decisions. In order to possess that kind of control, one MUST follow certain routines that have proven to be successful. You can too. By following the actions in the list below, you can achieve positive, successful results that go far beyond those of the average person. Here you go:
Decide What You Want
Step number one, decide exactly what it is you want in each part of your life and in your business. Become a “meaningful specific” rather than a “wandering generality.”
Write It Down
Second, write it down, clearly and in detail. Always think on paper. A goal that is not in writing is not a goal at all. It is merely a wish and it has no energy behind it.
Set a Deadline
Third, set a deadline for your goal. A deadline acts as a “forcing system” in your subconscious mind. It motivates you to do the things necessary to make your goal come true. If it is a big enough goal, set sub-deadlines as well. Don’t leave this to chance.
Make a List
Fourth, make a list of everything that you can think of that you are going to have to do to achieve your goal. When you think of new tasks and activities, write them on your list until your list is complete.
Organize Your List
Fifth, organize your list into a plan. Decide what you will have to do first and what you will have to do second. Decide what is more important and what is less important. And then write out your plan on paper, the same way you would develop a blueprint to build your dream house. Create a schedule to help you accomplish the things on your list.
The sixth step is for you to take action on your plan. Do something. Do anything. But get busy. Get going. Follow your schedule!
Do Something Every Day
Do something every single day that moves you in the direction of your most important goal at the moment. Develop the discipline of doing something 365 days each year that is moving you forward. You will be astonished at how much you accomplish when you utilize this formula in your life every single day
There are so many distractions in our lives today. Creating our goals, choosing our plan and working that plan will keep you focussed and consistent and that is the key to success!
