Success is elusive. In most ways, it depends on how you define it. It depends on how you define yourself. I am a Christian. I am a husband and a father. I am a real estate agent, broker, firm owner, writer, author, speaker and so forth. Success is defines by the achieving of goals by certain times. Time periods are measured in days, weeks, months and years. So pick an area of life, then pick a goal, then pick an arbitrary time period, and go for that success like your hair is on fire.
I picked a handful of goals I wanted to achieve by the end of the calendar year, and there were 100 days left in the year when I started this group of goals. There are only 80 days left today.
Two of the important ways I define myself are how I make a living, ie. writing and real estate. As an author, there are a couple more books I want to get out this year. If one visits www.amazon.com/author/donm there are three books available now with a fourth coming very close, so there is much work to be done. As broker, there is a certain amount of business I must do to earn a certain amount of income which I need for even more goals.
Living the “Plan B” Lifestyle
In a perfect world, we are born rich and good-looking. We have a silver spoon mentality, and already have everything we will ever need. But when we discover it’s not a perfect world, what do we do then? If we don’t have the “Plan A” life, we may need to go to “Plan B” where we have to go out and get what we want and need to be comfortable.
“Cause and Effect” Your Way to Success and Abundance
Have you ever noticed that if you do one thing in particular, something else will occur? That is called cause and effect. If we want a certain effect, we can either receive it in a miracle or materialize it, or we can perform the tasks it takes to cause the effect we want. We have no control over the first two but we do have control over the last.
Reduce it to the Ridiculous
The first time period to chose concerns the goal you have set. The second time period to chose is a smaller period to measure results. And the third and smallest manageable time period to measure your efforts. You can do efforts every day, for example. You can measure result every few days. You measure goals in the appropriate time period. And there are time periods that work perfectly for these.
If you could not tell, this concept is becoming one of the books I hope to have available this year. You will use it for sales, weight loss, or just about anything. Its working title is “How To Gain Success, Abundance and Prosperity Using the “Plan B” System of Cause and Effect, and I hope it will be out this winter.
