Reviewing Step 1 – Decide & Visualize
How has your visualization sessions been over the past week? Are you feeling incredible? Are you seeing that everything you want for your next Christmas is possible? Remember this step is essential to your success! Jim Rohn said “What’s easy to do is easy not to do”, and this very simple step is usually the one most people won’t do each day. Ask any really successful person if they do some form of visualization or meditation each day, and you’ll find this to be a common denominator with all of them.
Reviewing Step 2 – Designing Your Plan
Do we have our plan mapped out for the rest of the year? This is very important. If we were ready to “take off” in an airplane without a map of where we are going, then we are going to be flying aimlessly in the air. Does this sound familiar? I can tell you I have done this and I found myself “in action”, without a plan, and therefore, I didn’t get to where I wanted to go.
Step 3 – Taking Action
Now that you know what you want and how it feels to be there, and you have “mapped” out the plan to get there, all we have to do now, is determine the details of what must be accomplished this month. Then we can break it down to the week, and then the day. For example, if we wanted to make $5,000 this month, then we would make $1,250/week, and if we worked 6 days/week, then we would make $208.33 per day.
Once we have a detailed plan, keeping daily gauges will be necessary. For example, if our goal for Monday was to make $209 per day and we only made $100 on Monday, then on Tuesday, we must make the $209 for Tuesday + the $109 we were short on Monday which = $318 for Tuesday. If we are short for the next day, we must stay accountable and by the end of the week, we must make the $1,250. Keeping yourself accountable is imperative to creating a new habit.
Having A Mentor To Keep You Accountable
It’s not easy staying accountable to oneself, therefore, I have found when I hold myself accountable to a mentor who has “walked the path” before me, I tend to stay accountable. I also feel supported when I am struggling to establish new habits and beliefs.
Now you have your homework for this week. Pull out your gauge sheets and keep yourself accountable. Keep on doing the 5 minute exercise every morning, then focus on your plan. Next week we will take you through Step 4 of this 4 part series on The Steps To Ensure Success In 2011.
