The Four Simple Steps to Success with Ease
 

Every one of us has the power within to do what we love to do for a living, and to be successful as well. There are four simple steps to achieve your dreams in life — even if you’re lazy, inexperienced, overwhelmed, or financially challenged.

1. Dream


It all begins by daring to dream. Everything ever created first started as a dream. At first, our dreams are just insubstantial bits of imagination, delicate and easily lost, but as we continue to focus on our dreams, they become more and more solid, until they eventually become clear goals, and finally become intentions.

Here’s a simple way to discover that dream and get started with the process of creation: Take a sheet of paper, and write “Ideal Scene” at the top. Imagine five years have passed, and everything has gone as well as you can possibly envision and imagine. What does your life look like?

Take another sheet of paper and write “Goals” at the top, and list every goal you can think of for the next few years. If you could do, be, or have anything, what would it be? Then take another sheet of paper, and rewrite each goal as an affirmation, as if it is now coming into being. Begin (or end) each affirmation with the words “In an easy and relaxed manner, in a healthy and positive way…,” then state your goal: “I am now becoming successful doing what I love to do.”

Sometimes add the words “in its own perfect time, for the highest good of all.” These are powerful words to repeat.

Keep repeating your affirmations, especially whenever doubts, fears, or anxieties arise.

2. Imagine


Now just imagine how every one of your goals could possibly come into being. Take a sheet of paper and write “What Ifs” at the top. Then write your goal and start listing different possibilities that come to mind: What if I did this? What if I did that? What if this happened? What if that happened?

Simply explore possibilities at this point. Let your creative mind wander free. Try to list several different “what ifs” for each goal. There are so many possibilities to imagine!

3. Believe


As soon as we dare to dream, as soon as we have the courage (and it takes courage) to imagine how we could possibly achieve those dreams, doubts and fears inevitably arise. How do we best deal with them? Just express them as clearly as possible to yourself, in simple words: “It’s so hard to succeed.” Then repeat an affirmation that directly counteracts those limiting doubts and fears: “In an easy and relaxed manner, in a healthy and positive way, I am now creating total artistic and financial success.” (You can add, “in its own perfect time, for the highest good of all.”)

Every time you affirm something like this, you’re creating a powerful new belief that will over time overcome those old, limiting beliefs that are underlying your doubts and fears.

4. Create


Now we’re ready to bring our dreams into reality: For every major goal you have, write a plan, on just one or two sheets of paper. It doesn’t have to be a perfect plan; you don’t need to know all the steps necessary to reach your goal. Put on paper the steps you need to take to at least begin to reach your goal.

Then take the next obvious steps in front of you to keep moving forward with your plan. Keep focused on your goal. Be persistent.

A one-page plan is powerful,
because it sets your powerful subconscious mind in motion.


There is nothing new in any of this, of course. It’s all summed up in two of my all-time favorite quotes:

Of course we need to build our castles in the air.
That’s where they should be.
Then we put the foundations under them.

— Henry David Thoreau

If you think you can,
or if you think you can’t,
you’re right.

— Henry Ford


Be well, be in peace,
