Decide, you must first make a decision to be resolved in your commitment. To decide is to cut off, to sever, leaving no other option or alternative.
“Then indecision brings its own delays, and days are lost lamenting over lost days. Are you in earnest? Seize this very minute; what you can do, or dream you can do, begin it; Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.” ~Goethe
1. Make certain it is YOUR Dream
I know I will do far more for others than myself, do you know anyone like that? Maybe even you? More often in our lives we spend more time on someone else’s goals than our personal internal passionate desire. Make sure it’s your passion to succeed in whatever course you chart, make certain it’s your commitment to succeed in life! You define what success is, choose and be happy.
2. Do Not Call It a Goal
Referencing the book What They Don’t Teach You in the Harvard Business School, Mark McCormack shares a study conducted on students in the 1979 Harvard MBA program. In that year, the students were asked, “Have you set clear, written goals for your future and made plans to accomplish them?” Only three percent of the graduates had written goals and plans; 13 percent had goals, but they were not in writing; and a whopping 84 percent had no specific goals at all, NONE.
Ten years later, the members of the class were interviewed again, and the findings, while somewhat predictable, were nonetheless mind boggling. The 13 percent of the class who had goals were earning, on average, twice as much as the 84 percent who had no goals at all. And what about the three percent who had clear, concise written goals? They were earning, on average, ten times as much as the other 97 percent put together.
Even with the evidence of this proven method of success, most people don’t have clear, measurable, time-scheduled goals written down that they work toward.Write it down with a pen and paper while in a state of anticipated expectancy. Emotion is motion.

3. Clearly Identify Your Commitment
Begin to see your future in the present, feel it with fervent passion, see it crystal clear, this is what it takes to achieve your outcome. Clarity is Power! To Quote Tony Robbins ““If you talk about it, it’s a dream. If you envision it, it’s possible. But if you schedule it, it’s real.”
4. Use The Tools Around You
We must begin to use the tools around us; whether they are positive or negative motivators you must have someone in your life that is holding you accountable to reaching and achieving your goals. More often than not the negative motivators are the most compelling as I know from experience, I moved more mountains to prove to myself that I could do anything against all odds and because of the people who didn’t believe in me.
Example: A Negative motivator is someone who has told you “You will never succeed”. Or maybe they laughed at you when you said you’re going to quit your job to begin your own business. I had many versions of this happen to me over my lifetime and it moves me every time. Thank you to all of those who didn’t believe in me, I am sincerely grateful.
Write this person’s name down as if you are writing a thank you card and say I am so grateful for that I________ (whatever your outcome is) in the present tense on an index card, sticky notes, etc., and post them on your wall, in front of your computer, your cubicle, your vehicle, your locker if you have one where ever you are. So when times are tough, you look at that card and it will motivate you to keep on keeping on until you are there. The most important part of this is to celebrate as if it is already real with all of the energy and enthusiasm of a child.
Passion is knowing that those who pushed me forward will soon be behind me, and what I mean by that is those who didn’t believe in me will soon be my strongest supporters. There are equal positives to every negative in everything.
5. Know Your Outcome and Plan it.
*WHAT is it you want? What is your outcome? What will you sacrifice to get it? *WHERE will you be? *WHEN will you accomplish it? What month, what date, what year?
*WHY do you want this? What is the consequence if you do not accomplish this? *WHO’s help do you need? Who will help you? Who will you reach out to? *HOW will you make this happen? How will you get the help you need?
In your Life plan, you need to outline each of these specific characteristics of identifying at a very crystal clear level the entire process. Remember, Clarity is power!
6. Review, Plan and commit On a Daily Basis
20 Minutes every day, you need to review and re-read and note your progress on this “LIFE PLAN”.
If you do not have 20 minutes, that is a complete lie. There is a special reading place we all have where we spend 15-20 minutes sometimes sitting down at. Make every should a Must. Don’t just should all over yourself…
7. Tell your Self You have Succeeded, speak your gratitude for your outcome in the present tense. Live in the gratitude of your success now, what you can do, or dream you can do you must begin it; Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
“The size of your success is determined by the size of your belief and the fervency of your passion” Emotion is Motion.
Pay attention to your sub-conscious thoughts every single day, you must guard the doorway to your mind and allow only positive thoughts to enter. Observe how you communicate with others about your business, and where you stand as a networker. Always speak with positive verbiage to convey your message in every arena of your life.
8. Share with Others Your Conviction and Certainty of your Commitment.
Go out and share with the world about your outcome and where you are headed. Don’t sit back and try to keep it a secret. Have people laugh at you, then write their name down on a card and stick on your wall!
Envision The Results and make them bigger and brighter than you ever thought possible now be grateful for the fruition.

“MENTORING QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF IN EVERY DECISION”
1) What am I doing today to get what I want?
2) Will this behavior improve my situation and move me towards what I want?… or am I settling?
3) How would the person I want to be do the thing I am about to do?
4) Who do I have to become to attract the success I want?
5) Am I willing to accept the consequences of not changing.
6) Who is in control?
7) Am I practicing to improve or doing just enough to get by?
8) What don’t I SEE?
9) If my Board of Directors could see my level of effort, focus and intensity, would I get a raise or get fired?
10) Am I willing to do whatever it takes?
