I’d like to introduce you to my system for breaking through whatever is holding you back from achieving your goals and living life on your own terms.

It’s a process I’ve used subconsciously all my life to achieve one “unrealogical” dream after another. The Air Force honed my process into a real system as I realized my dream of flying supersonic jets, and now I want to share it with you.

So, let’s stop and think about it: Haven’t we all had enough people telling us we’re going to fail or make a big mistake? Or that we’re being unrealistic? Or that we should be happy with what we have?

Let me be the one to tell you that your past does not have to equal or dictate your future. I may not know you personally, but I do know PEOPLE. So, I feel very confident when I say that I BELIEVE in you and what you are capable of and I know with absolute certainty that today can be the day that your life changes forever and you break through whatever is holding you back.

All you need is the belief in yourself, along with a system that puts that belief into action.

So, now I’d like to share a myth that you’ve probably heard before. All the personal development and self-help gurus tell us that if we want to achieve and be successful in life, we have to know where we are, where we are going, and have a path for getting there.  Then they show us this nice straight line leadind from where we are to our goal.

But it rarely, if ever, works that way, right? Has anything in your life ever gone that smoothly? EVER?

NO.  See, if you were to draw out the REAL path to any big goal, it would look like a rollercoaster or a tangled up pile of spaghetti! Success is a journey.  It’s never a straight line from A to B.  Like taking a trip:  There are always going to be detours, roadblocks, setbacks, potholes all along the way. 

The only thing that’s going to keep us going when the going gets tough is the strength of our vision, our burning desire to achieve our goal NO MATTER WHAT, and the systems we have in place to keep us moving forward.

That’s what I’m sharing with you today:  a proven system.  A system I learned in the Air Force teaching airmen to fly advanced supersonic jets, a system I’ve used and honed to transform thousands of people’s lives!  It’s based on 4 pillars:
STANDARdS
DISCIPLiNE
ACCOUNTABIlITY
and SYSTEMS

It’s a process that can be duplicated by any team, business, or organization and it’s a system every one of us can use right now to take things to the next level.    

So, let’s tackle the first Pillar – Standards – today.

Your Standard is your big “A-1” goal – the star that you’re aiming at. It’s the vision of your ideal life. 

However, if you’re like MOST people, you may find it difficult to actually know what that big vision looks like. So we have to start the process by asking ourselves “What do you WANT?  What do you REALLY want?” Not what do you think you can get or what you think you SHOULD want or what other people think you should want but what do YOU really want for your life?

So, your homework is to invest some time thinking about that – What do you want? What is the vision of your ideal life?

Some people find it easier to ponder these questions by playing a game… Pretend you are standing in a field, brand new to planet Earth… You have no attachments, no possessions, no job, no bills, no NOTHING and you can have whatever you want just by wishing for it.  What would you wish for?  What people would you wish back into your life? Which ones would you keep out of your new life? Where would you live? How would you spend your days? Paint as detailed a picture in your mind as possible of your perfect life.

Once you have it, we can move on to the process of making it happen – starting with Pillar #2 – Discipline.
