So decide NOW! and make it BIG. Make it SCARY! If you are going to live your dream you may as well make it a BIG DREAM. It takes the same amount of energy to dream small as it does to dream big. So don’t waste your energy on small dreams, dream BIG, REALLY BIG! Your dreams should seem to be (at the outset anyway) almost impossible to achieve. So begin today by writing down your life’s dreams and goals. START NOW!
Step 2. – Your Daily Action Plan.
According to Napoleon Hill (Think and Grow Rich) one of the common threads running through practically ALL successful people, is their habit of writing down a daily action plan. So this is how you begin this all important success habit:
a). Every night immediately before going to sleep, write down a list of 6 things you will do tomorrow to move you towards your dream life.
b). Begin working through your list of 6 actions ONE AT A TIME. DO NOT think about the next item on your list until you have finished the present item. DO NOT think about the previous item on your list once you have moved on to the next item.
c). As much as you can, endeavour to finish all 6 items on your daily action plan every day. However, if you don’t, simply move the items you did not complete onto the next days list.
d). Once you begin this, ensure you do it for at least 30 consecutive days (yes even weekends) This way you WILL turn it into a habit.
Just by committing and doing your daily action plan you will be amazed at the difference it can make to your results!
Step 3. – Make Decisions With Confidence.
Wherever you are in life, you can be assured that at some point in time, you had to make a decision about something, you just can’t get away from it, you HAVE TO MAKE DECISIONS IN LIFE!
Now, the difference between winners and losers is: Winners make decisions quickly and very rarely change their minds, whereas losers make decisions slowly and change their minds frequently (I first heard that superbly profound statement from Bob Proctor, a great mentor of mine).
So how do you become a great decision maker? You start from where you are RIGHT NOW! Decide right now to become a successful decision maker. Make your decisions with confidence. Remember that wherever you are in your life, and whatever your results, you will have arrived there as a result of a series of decisions you have made along the way.
