15 Steps To Achieve Anything “Success isn’t a result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire.” – Arnold H. Glasow
15 Steps To Achieve Anything – Express It
Speak what’s below out loud, with enthusiasm, certainty, and belief. Improvise what you say as much as you want (actually, this is preferred). Visualize what you say – see it in your head before the words leave your lips. Brackets contain instructions that explain something specific to do.
15 Steps To Achieve Anything – What, Why, and How
You realize that successfully achieving anything of significance is rarely the result of chance, but it requires that you follow a set of proven strategies, which include the following:
1. Clarifying your goal:

2. Discovering a BIG WHY:
[Describe some specific, positive, and emotionally compelling reasons why you want to achieve your goal – talk about benefits that get your heart pumping and get you really excited]
3. Defining the pain:
[Talk about the regrets and/or consequences of NOT achieving your goal – think 1, 3, and 5 years into the future].
4. Capturing your vision:
[Describe some pictures (people, places, and things), words, and quotes that you can add to a vision board to help you live the emotional experience of achieving your goal].
5. Learning what you need to do:
[Describe how you can use Google to find articles, how-to’s, guides, tips, videos, books, and courses that teach you how to accomplish your goal].
6. Finding a mentor:
[Say the name of the person who can help you achieve your goal and why you believe they can help. Then mention what you will specifically do to get them to work with you].
7. Developing a plan:
[Describe when you will set aside 15-30 minutes to develop a simple step-by-step plan for achieving your goal, as well as several specific details that your plan will include, such as 1-3 action steps, and dates you want to complete those steps].

12. Connecting with it:
[Identify a point in your day when you will regularly turn off all noise (TV, computer, phones, etc.) so you can sit quietly for 5-10 minutes to visualize and meditate on my goal].
