Action Plan Template: Goal Planning For Success

CHAPTER 7: THE PRICE OF ADMISSION

A free action plan template is included in the Goal Setting For Success tool. In the following information, you'll learn how to identify the knowledge and skills you'll necessary for meeting your goals.

"Choosing a major goal and sticking to it changes everything.”

It's a proven fact that one thing that distinguishes successful people from unsuccessful ones is those who meet their goals are willing to do the things that unsuccessful people won't do.

"Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be."

Successful people are willing to pay the price of admission required for the game they hope to play in. They understand that no one gets invited to the "big game of life" without having made significant effort to be there.

Our action plan template is a tool that will walk you through the goal planning process. It will ask you to think through how much, of what, needs to be done by when, and by whom. Part of the goal planning process includes assessing what knowledge, resources or skills may be lacking and must be gained before moving to the next stage of the goal planning process.

It was James Allen who said, "Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil."


Success Lesson #15: Freedom At Any Cost

"If you would attain that largeness of life, that fullness of self-expression, which expand all the faculties, you must grasp hold of freedom at any cost."
- Unknown

Too many people today live in a cramped and uncongenial environment; in an atmosphere which dampens enthusiasm, discourages ambition and effort, scatters energy, and wastes time.

They have not the courage or stamina to cut the shackles that bind them, to throw away all crutches and props, and to rely on themselves to get into an environment where they can do what they desire.

"Too often it takes adversity, suffering or struggling with obstacles and misfortunes, before the strength of one's character is brought out for all to see."

Sadly, many ambitions lay dormant under a cloud of discouragement and inaction. However, some people experience an awakening due to a powerful event; a tragedy, a sermon, a book or movie, something that provides the jolt needed to give rise to their ambitions.

If you would attain that largeness of life, that fullness of self-expression, you must achieve a sense of personal freedom at any cost. Nothing will compensate you for stifling the best thing in you. Bring it out at any sacrifice that is legally and morally sound. You can begin by using our action plan template and other leadership tools.

The diamond cutter knows the lessen of adversity better than most. He understands the diamond could never reveal its depths of brilliancy and beauty, but for the friction of the stone which grinds its facets, polishes it, and let's in the light which discloses its hidden wealth.

This friction is the price of admission; the price of liberation from darkness.
