If you missed Step 1 – Decide and Visualize, please click on “5 Minutes A Day Can Transform You To Have Your Best 2011”.
Building on Step 1 – Decide & Visualize
Have you followed the 5 minutes exercise everyday since you read our post on Step 1? Ask yourself “is having your best year ever worth 5 minutes per day?” This first step is a very critical step which all successful people do daily. It is the “foundation” to the new year we are designing. It’s like we’re building a new house. If you don’t build a strong concrete foundation, the beautiful walls of the house will fall down. This is why step 1 is so crucial.
Step 2 – Designing Your Plan
Once you are in the habit of doing step 1 daily, now you are ready for step 2. Each step is building on each other and they are crucial skills which must be mastered. It’s like mathematics. You must master counting to move on to addition, then you must master addition to move on to multiplication. If you haven’t mastered addition and you move on to multiplication, you will be confused and overwhelmed, and you probably will not continue on to master algebra. This is how great success is built, step by step.
Have you ever planned a vacation? How did it turn out when you planned it? Pretty perfect right? Imagine a vacation where you just showed up at the airport and you said “I want to go to New York today “. The airlines may not have an open flight and it would cost you a lot more because you didn’t plan. You want to see a very popular Broadway show and when you arrive, there are no tickets because they are sold out. If you planned your vacation, you would have gotten the tickets for the show on the day you wanted. What’s interesting is that most people do plan their vacation and it turns out great! Therefore, you know that planning works. Now, do you have the rest of your life planned out?
I remember my mentor asking me this question and I said “ahhh, no…” 🙄 Then he said “Why not?” and I said “cause I didn’t know I was suppose to plan my life” 😯 Duh, Kellie! Gosh, I felt so foolish and thought, yeah, how come I don’t have my life planned? Well, from that day forward I started to plan my life and it changed the direction of my life forever. 😛
Please watch Kellie’s video on how to design your plan:
