By completing your Elimination List you create a vacuum for the new you want in your life. Completing your Self-Inventory gives you clarity on your qualities, strengths and weaknesses. Now you are ready for your MEGA Plan for Success.
MEGA PLAN FOR SUCCESS:
Create a vision and purpose that is bigger and more powerful than your own circumstances or reality. It should inspire you to create something new or to go beyond any obstacle or limitation on your path.
Make your vision and purpose statements short, clear, vivid and inspiring without using jargon or complicated words or concepts. Your words must be powerful, compelling, engaging, memorable and easy to understand.
Your vision and purpose provide the inspiration for both your daily operations and your strategic decisions. Your purpose is your reason for being. Your vision statement provides your destination, where you want to go. Your purpose drives you forward and is your reason why. Your objectives and action steps focus you to make it happen.
The principle of focused attention dictates wherever you direct your focus is where your energy and creativity goes. Writing your vision, purpose, objectives and action steps make them real in the physical universe. It clarifies your beliefs and thoughts, desires and resources. Instead of keeping all this information in your head, you make it easier to achieve your results and have greater objectivity by putting in on paper.
When writing out your MEGA Plan, be aware and consciously select words that are expansive and truly represent what you want to manifest and experience. If it is not your truth or burning desire, how will you tap into your passion and commitment to create it? This is your time to shine and follow your dreams – listen to your intuition. It is helpful to use a dictionary to look up the meaning of the key words you want to use. Often times the meaning of words is different than you think.
Vision and purpose are ongoing and expansive. Your vision is what you see yourself creating, an image of the future that you seek to create. Make it bright, colorful and full of life. Your purpose is your passion and burning desire that empowers you to move forward, effectively transcending any challenge or obstacle. It is your reason why. Having a magnificent and inspiring purpose is paramount to your success. You may discover your purpose is actually quite simple yet profound and it often relates to service. One of our greatest callings is to be of service to others and make a difference in this world.
Goals or objectives are specific targets that calibrate your game plan. They are markers to show you how well you are actualizing your vision and purpose and achieving your results. Goals and objectives need to be specific and have dates and numbers so they can be reached and measured.
Action Steps are tasks you must complete to achieve your objectives and create the outcomes you want. They are the details that must be done to make your MEGA Plan happen. Take action consistently until you manifest your results.
Create and define the best possible game plan and strategy. Take focused and consistent actions to achieve your goals and desired outcomes. Be flexible and accept what life presents as you move forward. Usually there are unexpected and unplanned twists and turns along your path. Pay attention, because some of the best opportunities appear to be different than your original plan. They also can show up as challenges or obstacles that turn into great opportunities.
“Failing to plan is planning to fail.”
John Wooden, one of the greatest coaches in history
Have the discipline, determination and commitment necessary to win. People fail because they lack a strong enough purpose to inspire them or the discipline necessary to consistently do the required tasks. If your Game Plan is not working check your strategy before you doubt or change your vision and purpose.
“Where there is vision, people prosper.”
The power of vision is extraordinary. Throughout history it has led to the world’s greatest accomplishments. At the core of every great discovery or creation is a powerful vision.
What is your vision?
What is your heroic mission?
Make your life a masterpiece!
The MEGA Coach
There is an old Hindu legend that tells when the Gods were making the world they asked, ‘Where can we hide the most valuable of treasures, so that they will not be lost? How can we hide them so that the lust and greed of men will not steal or destroy them. What can we do to make sure that these riches will carry on from generation to generation for the benefit for all mankind?’
So in their wisdom they selected a hiding place that was so obvious that it would not be seen and there they placed the true riches of life endowed with the true power of perpetual self-replenishment. In this hiding place these treasures can be found by every living person in every land who follows the success system that never fails.
Where is this hiding place? The most valuable of treasures are hidden within you. No one can steal or destroy them. You cannot lose them. For the true riches of life are hidden in the hearts and minds of man.

“THE SUCCESS OF A PHYSICAL LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL, MOST WORTHY, BUT THE PERFECTION YOURSELF IS A THOUSAND TIMES MORE VALUABLE THAN ALL THE WEALTH YOU CAN ACCUMULATE ABOUT YOU.” Saint Germain
Enlightenment is possible during your lifetime. Self Mastery is the ultimate purpose for life. You are blessed with the co-creative ability and freedom to create your life the way you want.
For a powerful breakthrough:
Go to a place or environment where you feel free, undisturbed and inspired. Take out a piece of paper and at the top of the page in the center, write, “My Qualities.” Then, under “My Qualities,” draw a line to the bottom of the page. On the left side at the top write “Weaknesses” and on the right side at the top write “Strengths.”
Take a few deep breathes in through your nose and out through your mouth. Let everything go and relax. Start with any of your weaknesses or negative qualities and write each one down on the list on the left. Observe any pattern, behavior or quality you have and write them down. Be sincere and do not judge yourself. Be honest and acknowledge what is. Be courageous and tell the truth about yourself. When you are complete review your list. Write down every weakness or negative quality so your are complete.
Take a few more deep breaths in the same manner. Let everything go and relax. Then look at and observe your strengths or positive qualities and write each one down on the list on the right. Acknowledge any positive quality, behavior or pattern about yourself. Go total. This is a time for absolute honesty and for revealing everything. This is not a time for modesty, it is a time for total truth.
For each list, you may notice that you run out of qualities to describe yourself. If you think that you have listed all of your qualities, give it a few minutes and you may find that some more qualities come to mind and flow out in little streams of creativity. For both set of qualities, allow yourself a little additional time when you think you are done and see if anything else reveals itself. Do not force this process. Let it flow, there is no right way to do this process.
This is your Self Inventory. When your lists are complete, objectively review your weaknesses and ask yourself if your negative qualities have increased or decreased in intensity or quantity over the past few years, 5 years, 10 years, etc. You may be quite surprised.
Then review your strengths and do the same thing. Have they increased or decreased in intensity or quantity over the years? Then look at both sides of your list and see what you see. Acknowledge the truth about your patterns of behavior and qualities. This is where your life is right now. These patterns determine your success in your life and relationships.
Do you have preferences regarding your strengths and weaknesses? Do you judge yourself for any of them? Does judging, criticizing or making yourself wrong help you grow, improve or feel better? Could you be any different than you are right now? What would happen if you suspend your judgment and criticism and just be an observer, like an anthropologist studying a species?
Every human being has both positive and negative qualities or strengths and weaknesses. The key is to allow yourself to be the way you are. Stop judging yourself and wasting precious time and energy. Just by noticing a negative behavior and letting it be the way it is allows it to unwire itself and fade away. Do not judge or resist it. Judging or resisting your own behavior is like adding gasoline to a fire. It makes it grow stronger. When you stop adding energy to a negative pattern of behavior and just acknowledge or observe it, the pattern completes itself.
These patterns of behavior determine the true quality of your life, health, relationships and true success. By having the courage to acknowledge the truth you now make clear, conscious choices about you, your life and career and where you want to go. Before you can set and achieve any goal, you need to know where you are – your starting point. Sometimes you must release or eliminate the old to create a vacuum for the new.
Consciously review your strengths and weaknesses and see where you specifically need to focus your time and energy to neutralize and even eliminate your key weaknesses that sabotage your well being, relationships and success.
