Laying The Proper Foundation for 2011 – Week 11

I’d like to begin with an important quote by the legendary American industrialist and automaker, Henry Ford, who said, “You can’t build a reputation on what you’re gonna do.” Most of us at one time or another have tried to do exactly that. Transferring  your intentions onto paper in the form of your action plan is the best place to begin. You may  have heard the phrase, “nothing is dynamic until it is specific.”

NOW is the best time to be honest with yourself and put your goals and action plan down in writing. New year, new you . . . right? You CAN make it happen.

Commit your goals to paper and try to make them as clear and specific as possible. What do you plan to do to reach your daily goals, weekly goals, and monthly goals? What would you like to accomplish in 30 days, 3 months, 6 months and one year? Where do you see yourself 3 – 5 years from now? Lay it all out. Be sure to make your plans realistic according to your current skill level and commitment level. It says in Proverbs 21:5 that “the plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty.” Do you want plenty? Are you willing to put forth some diligence to attain your goals?

If yes, then write down your plans and carry them out to the best of your ability. Stay focused, be persistent, committed and you will be amazed at what you can accomplish.

Calvin Coolidge, the 30th president of the United States said, “persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” He also said that the slogan, “press on,” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” Maybe “pressing on” would also help you solve some of the problems in your network marketing business like why it’s not growing as it should. While you’re pressing on, I would also throw in a little enthusiasm as well. A little enthusiasm just might be the catalyst to spark a renewed hope in someone else who has let the hope of their own dreams grow dim. Who knows? Lay out your plans and get in motion. Napoleon Hill, who was one of the greatest success writers who ever lived said:

“Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once, whether you’re ready or not, to put this plan into action.”

To your success,
