Lasting success is based on consistent growth.
Each step brings you closer to your goal.
Make sure that you allow yourself to acknowledge and feel all of your good.
Drink the sweet nectar of your success and joy and let it feed your soul and spirit.
There is no such thing as failure (unless you quit and choose to stop learning).
Every situation, even those you may label a failure or loss, is actually a learning experience.
In every so called “failure or loss” there is actually a gain.
Emerson states in his classic, “Compensation” that according to the laws of nature there can be no loss without a corresponding gain. So let go of the loss and focus on the gain!
Be clear of your vision and purpose, keep taking the appropriate action steps to achieve your objectives and go forward consistently with faith and belief.
For in the end, success is a natural part of life.
All of nature is abundant, growing and expanding.
Keep going forward one step at a time.
People are the greatest resource in the world and it starts with the Golden Rule.
How can you contribute and create the most value possible with the time, energy and resources you are blessed with?
What is your heroic mission?
Why are you here?
Remember to have an attitude of gratitude along the way to your success.
Be thankful for every blessing or success whether it is big or small.
Be open and receptive to all of your good that the universe had for you and share the good fortune with others.
Be a smile millionaire!

By completing your Elimination List you create a vacuum for the new things you want in your life. Completing your Self-Inventory gives you clarity on your qualities, strengths and weaknesses. Now you are ready to create your MEGA Plan for Success.
MEGA PLAN FOR SUCCESS:
To succeed you need a vision and purpose that is bigger and more powerful than your own circumstances or reality to inspire you to create something new or to motivate you to go beyond any obstacle or limitation on your path.
Your vision and purpose statements should be 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. By writing your vision, purpose, objectives and action steps you 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, by putting in on paper you make it easier to achieve your results and have greater objectivity.
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 only a good idea but 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 so listen to your intuition. It is helpful to use a dictionary and 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. It should be bright, colorful and full of life. Your purpose is the reason why you are creating your vision. It 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 that 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 actual tasks that must be completed to achieve your objectives and create the outcomes you want. They are the details that must be done to make your MEGA Plan happen. They are the actions you must take consistently until you manifest your plan.
In order for you to succeed you must create and define the best possible game plan and strategy. Then take focused and consistent action to achieve your goals and desired outcomes. You must be flexible to deal with what life presents as you move forward. Usually there are unexpected and unplanned for 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
An essential ingredient to achieving your results is having 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 necessary 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 KEYS TO ACHIEVING EXCELLENCE IN ANY OR ALL AREAS OF YOUR LIFE:
1) Daily Meditation
Consistent meditation improves your life in all areas; spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically and financially. Meditation assists you in detaching from the daily “mind set” or your conditioning and to discover your true greatness as an unlimited spiritual and human being.
Benefits of Meditation:
- Reduced stress

- Slowing of biological aging processes
- More orderly thinking
- Improved intellectual abilities
- Enhanced appreciation for enjoying life
- Greater ease in overcoming or renouncing addictive behaviors
- Spontaneous psychological transformation

I highly recommend Roy Eugene Davis’ “An Easy Guide to Meditation.”

“THE SUCCESS OF A PHYSICAL LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL, MOST WORTHY, BUT THE PERFECTION OF YOURSELF IS A THOUSAND TIMES MORE VALUABLE
THAN ALL THE WEALTH YOU CAN ACCUMULATE ABOUT YOU.”
Enlightenment is possible during your lifetime.
Self Mastery is the true purpose for your life on this planet.
You have freedom of choice and create your own life the way you want.
Your life is the sum total of your choices and actions to date.
Here is a suggestion for a powerful breakthrough:
Go to a place or environment where you can be free and undisturbed. Take out a piece of paper and on top of the page in the center, write, “My Qualities.” Then draw a line down the center of it. 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 that 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 and when you are complete review your list. Make sure that you have written down every weakness or negative quality on the list so you 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. Make sure that you 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. Be sure to write down every strength or positive quality about yourself so you are complete.
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, allow it to happen from your sincere intention to see the truth and acknowledge what is. Let it flow, there is no right way to do this process.
This is your Self Inventory. When you have everything listed, 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 about what you discover regarding your “negative patterns.”
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? After all, how could you be any different than you are right now? What would happen if you could suspend your judgment and criticism and just be an observer, like an anthropologist studying a species? This gives you a wonderful perspective to discover new things about yourself and to make new choices.
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 and to stop judging yourself and wasting your 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. The key is not to 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 can 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.
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.
It is very possible that after completing this powerful exercise that you will experience a breakthrough.
