It’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally here; and if I say so myself, it’s been totally worth the wait! What, you may wonder, am I talking about? Why the “Success Blueprint” of course!
What’s The Success Blueprint?
When I began thinking about creating a blog, my intention was – and still is – to create a community of inspiring people who could stop by and share their thoughts, ideas and techniques for living fuller, more satisfying lives… come on people, you KNOW who you are! Anyways, as a few months went by and the blog grew, I kept looking for ideas on how to make it better, or add some other ways it could help people achieve their personal goals, when WHAM! It hit me! I thought “Why not build a goal achievement workshop that people could download, then follow along to design and create the lifestyle of THEIR choosing?” And with that “Eureka” moment, I put pencil to paper, and began mapping out the document.
Having built various workshops and personal development courses for the corporate world, I figured putting something suitable together seemed like this wouldn’t take too long; “After all” I reasoned, “It’s really just a few to-do lists, right?” Eh… wrong; because the more I wrote, the more I realized that it would be important for people using the blueprint not just to write down things they wanted to have, do or experience; but to also “why” the exercises in the blueprint are effective in helping them achieve their goals. To explain, here’s an excerpt called “Golfing in the Dark” which talks about the importance of having clarity in our chosen goals.
Golfing in the Dark
Imagine you’ve been asked by a friend to meet at midnight to play a round of golf. You both arrive, and after a quick hello and a few practice swings to loosen up, you tee your ball up and are ready to take your first shot down the fairway. But wait, there’s a problem; BECAUSE it’s so frickin’ dark outside (remember, it’s midnight) you can’t see the course, the hole, or really anything in between! Without a clear idea where to aim, which club to use, or how to find your ball once it lands! In this situation the best you can do is whack the ball as hard as possible, and hope for the best. If this were an actual real scenario, do you think you’d get the ball anywhere near (let alone in) the hole? Probably not, since you have very limited information available to help you achieve this goal. It’s madness, I tell you – MADNESS!
Now imagine the exact same scenario; only this time you are golfing during the daytime. How much better do you think your aim towards the hole would be? Whatever your golfing skills are, the task would go substantially better, and here’s why: Because the daylight would provide CLARITY for you to know what the exact goal looks like, (in this case the location of the hole) and what you must to do to achieve it. Once you’ve sized up the situation, you might decide to go with a 3 wood, which – with luck and a good whack – would cause the ball to clear the grass hump, miss the trees, fly over the water hazard and hopefully land on (or close to) the green 464 yards away… Perfect!
Whereas this may seem like a silly example, it clearly illustrates the importance of clarifying in great detail what your goal (a.k.a.” The End Result”) looks like: Will the golfer who blindly aims for a hole “Somewhere over there about 500 yards” going to achieve his goal? Methinks probably not.
How about the golfer who aims “Down the fairway, clearing the hump, around the trees and over the water hazard towards the green”? Probably, since he knows what he’s aiming for, and therefore has a much better chance of making it. Clarity gives him a lot more information to make decisions than our friend blindly swinging away in the dark.
The moral of the story is simple: CLARITY of what your end goal “looks like” is critical if you’re to achieve it; without it, you may as well be “golfing in the dark”. Fore!
When I finished, the “Success Blueprint” had grown to 54 pages of information, stories and techniques all designed to put YOU in the drivers seat of your life. It’s a fully proven system* that, when followed, can help anyone achieve the dreams and goals they want! It’s written in a way that’s meant to feel as if I’m sitting right by your side, coaching you along; I’m encouraging you to do the exercises, and if needed, maybe guilting you a little bit if you begin to slack off. Because ultimately it’s really up to you what you want to do; I can offer up the best tools in the world, but it’s up to you to decide if you want to use them to build something great, right? You had better believe it; and for my part, with the Success Blueprint, I’m giving you the very best I’ve got.
FREE PRIZE INSIDE!
Like I said earlier, I want to give this program away for FREE; just drop me an email and I’ll send you the Success Blueprint. It will come in three separate P.D.F. files, one per week for three weeks, so as not to overwhelm. Heck, if it will help, I’m even happy to provide a coaching session (free of charge) to get you started on the process; when you email me, just let me know if this is something you are interested in.
That’s it for this week! Thanks for reading, and I’m looking forward to helping some folks design and create the lives they’ve always wanted!
* I say “fully proven” system because, as explained in the Success Blueprint, it’s the system I’ve used to travel to 26 countries, build businesses, re-locate my family, deal with personal crisis, buy a home, become debt free, etc. etc. – so trust me when I say it’s a “proven system”!
