  A TRIED AND TRUE FORMULA FOR HITTING YOUR TARGET!

     SOME OF US ARE MORE SUCCESSFULL THAN OTHERS! Did you ever wonder if there was a tried and true formula for success? I don't mean a theory or just someone's explanation of how they got successfull but an absolute "I GUARANTEE IT" formula that absolutely cannot fail. Well I may be going out on a limb but I promise you there is! The ingredients are simple enough. A specific written down description of exactly what you want out of life is the key!!  There are so many different ways to describe your goal or what "SUCCESS" is to you that a clear concise definition written down on paper is an absolute must.

     You should be familiar with the answer to the question "What is the shortest distance between 2 lines?" It is of course a straight line. To test my promise you must now place the clear and concise definition of what you want out of life at the end of an arrow line. It should look something like this:

NOW (Current Status)-------------------------------------------------------------> Future Goal Target.

     The line between the definition of our present self (or situation) "NOW" and our Target will become our path of least resistance. If you are familiar with how water flows or gravity theories you should be able to grasp the theory of "The Path of Least Resistance".  We can turn the target in to a magnet that pulls us toward it! Passion plays a role in this equation as does faith and self confidence. You must be passionate about what you want to test this formula for yourself. If you are not passionate your magnet will weaken and you could get off path. Your passion or desire for the end target can be viewed as "FUEL". (We all know enough to have enough fuel when we go on a road trip and it is the same when traveling along your path.)  If you lack faith or self confidence then these two key ingredients can be learned or increased through various stimulating mental exercises. (I can discuss those in a future blog or e-mail me for an outline.)

     Here are a few tips about your goal or target.  You must be willing to give something in return or sacrifice something to attain your goal.  You can't get something for nothing applies here. Make sure to specify in writing what you are willing to give in return for attaining your target.  The clear and concise definition of your "SUCCESS" or "GOAL" must be in writing and carried with you each and every day of you life. You must do this to make sure you can review it and say it out loud three times every morning and 3 times every evening before you go to bed.

     It is also extremely important to identify your present state. This is your starting point so will have to be brutally honest with yourself about your exact present time in space and the condition of yourself in realation to where you are headed. A final absolute must have in the formula is a completion date.  You must identify when this needs to be completed. (Why make this a lifelong endeavor if it is possible in only 5 years or 10 years?)  My hope is that this might help you in whatever you are setting out to do in life.  You are an awesome and finely tuned machine.....So why not fuel up and hop on the path of least resistance?!

If you can be specific and  identify "The Hidden Secret of Success" in this blog I will send out a Starbucks Gift Card for any correct answer.

I'm pretty sure that can be arranged, Joshua. Something tells me you heard I was a wine enthusiast. My wine hobby is a big deal at my house. I have 3 or 4 perfect pairings for this lunker. Do you do Staging and Decorating in King or Snohomish county?
