11The Pathway to Dreams

The Ingredients of Success

Congratulations. We have now completed the comprehensive discussion on goal setting. Hopefully, you are energized about putting it all together and taking massive action. For your review, I have included a snapshot reference guide of the process, and I have also included an interactive toolkit for you to complete. Please follow this formula and drive yourself intensely to the successful completion of your goals and dreams. The It All Matters 10‐Step Goal‐Setting Formula must be completed sequentially. Each step forms the foundation required to master the art and science of goal setting and personal achievement. The process will manifest itself in your actions as you proceed through each step. You will learn to set inspiring goals, and when you apply the Power of 10 way of life to your goals, your results will be amplified. Don't be afraid to create stretch goals that push you out of your comfort zone. The more you require of yourself, the more you will accomplish on the road to achieving your highest capacity.

  1. What do you really want?
  2. See the goal in your mind's eye
  3. Starting date and completion date
  4. Write it down as an “I will” statement
  5. See the obstacles in advance
  6. List all the benefits
  7. Resolve to pay the price
  8. A well‐defined action plan
  9. Learning and usage
  10. Take massive action now

You never change your life until you step out of your comfort zone: change begins at the end of your comfort zone.
