Be, do and have: It’s the universal progression of triumph and
glory. To achieve success, we picture the possible, immerse
ourselves in the coveted wish and follow up with consistent action
until the purpose is achieved.

Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung said, “Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” Look within to discover what you want to be, do and have.
You may have to unearth that data, as often we bury desires with excuses or rationales: “Maybe next year.” “It’s too late for me.” “I don’t have enough talent, education, connections, (or whatever).” Stop! Don’t settle for a life of meager accomplishments when you’re capable of so much more.
Abundance appears where it is welcomed. What are you inviting into your life? Decide what you want. See the outcome, taste it, feel it. Give it emotion, form, color.
Whatever your desire to be, do and have – from the smallest fancy to the grandest dream – consider creating a performance contract. Affix your name, sign and date it, just as you would a legal agreement.
To have a richer, fuller life, I promise the following:
1. I will seek the possible. I will nurture my dreams and create goals consistent with my values and purpose.
2. I am willing to do more than just dream. I will design an action plan and make progress every day, evaluating and adjusting as needed. I will focus on what I can do, not what I can’t do.
3. I will anticipate positive results. I will visualize success, not fear failure.
4. I will assign my subconscious mind the task of helping me toward achievement. I will employ visualization, affirmations, meditation, or prayer to get mentally geared for change.
5. I will strive for excellence in all endeavors.
6. Every time I unwrap the gift of a painful event, I will grow and learn from it. I will not allow my attitude to calcify.
7. There is no such thing as failure, only experience. Whatever the experience or situation, I will handle it.
8. I will develop a strong mental shield to ward off negative thinkers around me. No one else is in charge of my success. I alone control my thoughts, habits, choices, character and destiny.
9. Today is the first day of the rest of my life. I will celebrate its wonder and be happy for the opportunities another new day brings. I recognize the tremendous power in gratitude, vitality and a positive attitude.
10. I now take charge of my power and my life.
