Would it be ok if I shared my lesson on Chapter 7 on Organized Planning from Think and Grow Rich for this week’s Think and Grow Rich Lessons with You.
As a boy I dreamed of traveling the world, from that young child sitting in the old wooden caravan in the back yard playing and stating that was going to travel the world and being unaware at that stage what that even meant at that time or building a spaceship with Lego and pulling it apart again to build something else, even designing a new computer concept own life was full of imagination where could dream of a future. Those dreams also involved being a husband and father, having optimum health so that was able to achieve that goal in the future. The hardest part was having all those ideas in own head, no real plan to achieve those goals or dreams.
Even our wedding day a beautiful warm spring day which it turned out to be that imagined and planned for months or our own honeymoon all needed a plan. A plan is taking that idea or concept to the next level, you can dream that new car, being a stay home dad, traveling the world. However when we let it slide and expect it to happen without a plan then it turns to a mess on its own and then we get frustrated with our results.
We need to look at what we are wanting to achieve and that idea of what we have in the end, it may be a simple as losing weight and seeing yourself in medium clothes and keeping on going at that goal until you achieve the weight loss You so desire. Your idea may start off as a jumble of ideas and concepts which You want to achieve. It may need you to start with going to the gym 3 days a week to build muscular strengthing and, then finding what else You can do to improve Your own health. That simple idea turns into a plan, that plan then evolves. Either we plan what we want to achieve within our own lives or we will be living the life of our dreams.
One of the hardest areas personally is creating that plan and working out where it needs reviewing or what can do to change those results. It also needs feeling comfortable enough with a friend or mentor to be able to turn to them for help and express Your plans without feeling that person will knock Your goal or dream.
Too many times own goal or dreams have been expressed to a family member, a friend or similar and its ended up being knocked and therefore the idea remained unexplored. We all need that friend who is happy to help You work through those plans and build those plans who we trust enough that can help us to build our business or we will continue to be frustrated and living the life that someone else wants us to live.
At marine rescue when we get a call for assistance there must be a plan of action on what needs to be done next, if its as simple as calling the police and saying “we have this situation going on, what would You like to do?” or it may be a more complex plan needed how do we help this person out. Every aspect of life whether its improving health, building your business, raising a family, becoming a better friend, better parent or anything all requires a plan. That plan needs to be enough that will help You to change what You are unhappy about.
Thanks to my amazing mentors, coaches and friends for life Michael and Linda Dlouhy and Ken Klemm for Your ongoing guidance, love, support and encouragement, that will last as lifetime. Thank You also to my amazing loving wife Jenny for her own ongoing love, support and encouragement, Your own love will last a lifetime.
Your friend for life,
Wishing You a life full of love and health,

Ps even leaving a employer saying sorry I am earning enough that no longer need to work for You and having so much fun doing that needs a plan on its own that You can say to someone hey You know how You wanted to be free as a person well I am and can do as please. Its our own attitude and plan that helps us achieve our goals and also the soundness of our plan aswell.
