Everyone wants to be successful…

Everyone wants to be successful …until it’s time to do what successful people do.



What is a recipe?

Ever followed a recipe?

If 2, 6, 10, or 100 people follow the same recipe, will they get the same results?

(Hint: IF they follow it precisely)


1. Decide what you want (dreams/desires/goals)

2. Determine needed resources (knowledge/people/equipment/etc.)

3. Determine the steps to take (plans/to do lists)    (

(“By the mile, its a trial; by the yard, its hard; by the inch, a cinch!”)

4. Set up a time-table (calendar/schedule)

5. What do I need to do Today? … First? Second? … morning? afternoon? evening?

6. Visualize the day in your mind, doing each task, one-after-the-other.

7. Take ACTION! (Start … “act out” what you visualized)

(There’s not enough time to do everything; but plenty to do the most important things! — You must decide)


Your mind is an automatic goal-striving “mechanism”(Psycho Cybernetics, by Maxwell Maltz)

When consistently/routinely focusing on a goal, the mind will automatically “work out” the “path” to it

Long Range Goals provide DIRECTION

Short Range Goals provide MOTIVATION   (go to

Goal Completion instills SELF-CONFIDENCE (Success breeds Success)

Focusing on goals/plans must be a daily routine … especially at the start of each day
At the end of the day, review progress and feel the “exhilaration” of small successes!


This will include what you want to become, do, have, where you want to go, people you want to know/get close to, habits you desire. Share a few ofthese with somebody (if you so choose)! This list can/ should be organized into categories (family, physical, educational, spiritual, financial, social,career, etc.)

Write your Life Story 

1. Write your Life Story (pretend you are at the end of your life and you have accomplished all your desires. Write down a “history” of what you did and how/when you did it (and, perhaps, who you did it with)!

2. Select a specific goal (or set of goals) that you can/will complete in one week. This can be a step goal or series of step goals toward a major goal.

3. Take action during the coming week to complete this goal/these goals!

4. Be prepared to share portions of your life story and the goal(s) you accomplished (if you so choose)! Have FUN in fulfilling these assignments. No one is going to “make” you do them. Your success in life rests solely on YOUR shoulders! (“If it is to be, it is up to me!”)

Why Share Your Life Story?!

Probability of Implementation:

1. Hear an idea that you like (10%)

2. Consciously decide to adopt the idea (25%)

3. Decide when you will do it (40%)

4. Plan how you will do it (50%)

5. Commit to someone else that you will do it (65%)

6. Have a specific future appointment with the person you committed to, at which time you will report to him/her whether you have done it. (95%)   (“This above all: to thine own self be true …”, Shakespeare [Hamlet]) (


Share Your Life Story

1. Life Story (all or portions, depending on length)

2. Goal(s) Accomplished (how you did them, and any feelings you’d like to share about achieving them) This reporting is voluntary … someone wants to hear about your successes (& celebrate together)!


Everyone wants to be successful

1. Visualization (get/display pictures of your goals)

2. Affirmations (for each picture/goal) (ex: “I am a great violinist. I play for large audiences.”)

3. Feel the Emotion (imagine/feel the emotion you would at the time each goal is being fulfilled!) from the list of BYOB Free eBooks Online, go to
