Yesterday I wrote to you about a system I learnt many years ago that gives you a 97% chance of having everything you ever wanted in your life, be it financial, relationships, health…whatever.
Ok it's not 100%.
Nothing is 100% guaranteed to work.
…but hey, 97%?
The odds are stacked in your favour aren't they?
….and you know what, there is really one thing that you MUST do to make this happen.
Before I tell what that is – Here's the proof.
Harvard business school did a study on the financial status of its students 10 years after graduation and found that:
– 27% of them needed financial assistance.
– 60% of them were living paycheck to paycheck.
– 10% of them were living comfortable.
– 3% of them were financially independent.
The study of course went into the reason why, and here's what they discovered….
The 27% that needed financial assistance had absolutely no goal-setting processes in their lives.
The 60% had survival goals at best…
The 10% had general goals… Nothing specific with any system to monitor or track.
The 3% that where financial independent had…WRITTEN OUT… their goals and the steps that were required to reach them.
So the secret is really simple and easy…if you want more in your life, you need to get really clear and specific on what that is and use the system I gave you yesterday to have a 97% chance of achieving it.
Starting with the first step…. write them down.
As if you need more proof, right?
Well I got plenty…
Here's what behavioural researcher, Richard Molden and Steven Swaverly had to say in there study – The Psychology of Top Performers:
“Writing down action plans provide a clear path for the getting there, and written time frames allow them to track their progress. This serves to increase the level of awareness for the events, opportunities and the actions that can carry them closer to their intended goals.”
“There is even evidence that written goals produce this elevated level of awareness through some very specific neuro-chemical effects”
Wow, how's that? You can even get high writing out your goals… Beats the side effects of drugs!
Now I know that fancy-pants studies are all good and that… But personal experience is much better.
Around 1999 when I got serious about making money, I really resisted the goal setting process, but I begrudgingly followed the system that I shared with you…
….just 4 years later I was a millionaire.
Today I've used the same system with a few tweaks here and there and can say that it has continued to produce the goods if you stick to it.
In fact as I sit here writing this email to you, I'm at my holiday home at Noosa with my backyard being the river and National Park land behind it…( a byproduct of one of my goals).
It's a serene and beautiful setting to be planning the great achievement's of 2011 that I'll be embarking on…
I'm working on my master plan for 2011 in all area of my life, not just financial…
What are you doing right now?
Are you going to to take this goal setting stuff seriously…???
Follow the system that I laid out for you and you've got 97% chance of success…I like your odds…
Like I said yesterday… I've got a special feeling about 2011…it's going to be marvellous.
