Now The Fun Begins
We are writing our press releases this week and I cannot wait to read those written by the new guys on the course. I have mine available to read on the tab at the top of this blog. Since writing mine it became so much easier to visualise what my future would look like. It is great fun putting these images into words in the form of a press release as we can let our imaginations run wild with details and content.
Why Do This?
This is one of the tools that we are using to end procrastination. Every time I see what the future is going to look like it becomes more real. I’m reading the DMP, I’m reading the press release and imprinting my mind with a clear vision of what we are going to achieve. We are noticing shapes and linking them to our PPN’s, we are essentially pushing this in from all angles and giving ourselves no room for excuses. The days of procrastination are now well and truly over. Let the fun begin!
My thinking is forming what I achieve and as much as I want to blame others I cannot deny this.
I am noticing that when my thoughts are in line with the course material that we are studying I can achieve so much more than when my thoughts are wandering away from me. This has led me to ask the question – Why would I let my thoughts wander away from my chosen path?
It would be easy to say that it is the fault of others and they must be the problem. I think that would have been my old response. I can now see that if I don’t feel that I’m achieving it must be me. By taking 100% ownership of the problem I can feel that the solution is 100% within me. Knowing that if I created the problem I can solve it seems small but this has a massive effect on everything, what if I could help other people realise that they have the power if they would take responsibility for the bad then they could create the good they desire.
I have given a lot of quiet thought to this and adjusted my Plan of Action. The original served me well but it feels dated and life/ business have moved on. I’m not sure why I left the old plan in place when reading it was not getting me up and excited. The new PoA is going to be the start then my Definite Major Purpose is next in the firing line, it needs more energy because as we all know if we charge a desire with a strong feeling we will move a mountain to achieve it. Simple really but I guess in the past I would have just let it drift and then give up leaving me with a habit which was mediocre at best.
Doing this brings me to the realisation that I have this now. Knowing the formula for success has enabled me to not only spot the problems but fix them too. This will happen again and again throughout my life and I have it, I have the knowledge and with it the power to be self directed. Is this the new reality we were promised? Will my life be lived with purpose and on purpose? I know it will be as that is what I want and I truly believe I can achieve it so it a done deal I just need to do the work before I claim it.
What a difference a year makes, this has been said by me many times before but this year I feel it so much more.
Thanks to this course I don’t need to make a new years resolution as I have a Definite Major Purpose which is guiding me in a direction of my choosing every minute of every day. As it is my DMP and worded to encompass my needs spiritually, physically and mentally it is very personal to me. I feel it to my core and I’m loving the journey. I believe any smart goal we set and charge with emotion we can accomplish.
I’m not a fool so I have a Plan Of Action to take me to the goal and I can change the plan if needed to keep me on track. Having a plan to achieve your DMP is essential as we will only get back what we give so we must be putting the work in to stand any hope. I don’t need to know every step at this time as ideas and opportunities are still to come to me along the way but doing something is essential.
I have a Positive Mental Attitude as that is a well written about requirement to achieve and sustain any success in life. A PMA also enables you to be a giving person and enjoy the ride, sounds like my type of plan as enjoying what we have is a good way to live. The Seven Day Mental Diet by Emmet Fox is my guide for this. This also ensures that I’m receptive to the new ideas when they show up, it would be a shame to miss out on a life changing moment because is was having a pity party about something unnecessary like a relatives attitude or heavy traffic.
I also have a Master Mind Alliance as this is essential to keep yourself honest. It’s easy to slack off when it’s just you and your plan but bring someone else into the equation and you feel a responsibility to carry on. If I don’t do the work then I’m not just letting my future self down but also someone else who is trying to better themselves too. My MMA is a good man with regular life problems and a tough job. Between us we will achieve so much as combined we are stronger than the sum of our parts for the reasons above. Nick I’m truly grateful for all that you do to push me on!
DMP + POA + PMA + MMA = Success. An equation that has stood the test of time as it has been written about and used by successful people since the early 1930’s either knowingly or not. Just read their autobiography’s if you need proof.
I hope this explains why I will not be setting a New Years Resolution this year like the majority. They often get forgotten about in early January anyway and setting a goal which you soon drop is a very bad habit to form. If you set a goal then stake your life on it, setting goals which you achieve is a good habit to form and one which can potentially change a life.
