“Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.” – Pablo Picasso

Hill tells us “You have learned that everything man creates or acquires, begins in the form of DESIRE, that desire is taken on the first lap of its journey, from the abstract to the concrete, into the workshop of the IMAGINATION, where PLANS for its transition are created and organized.

That is Hill’s three step process and it makes sense. If you don’t have a desire you are not going to get very far and I would go as far to say that it needs to be a burning desire but it can grow stronger through the process. Hey some don’t….they are happy and content to sit around and let the government hand them everything…in fact not some but A LOT.

Then the imagination kicks in as you visualize what that dream you have could do for you. Travel, help others in need, some want fancy cars..really doesn’t matter, you just have to know and see what you want in your mind. And then the plan to bring it forth. 

When I have started in network marketing my only plan was to make a lot of money. I didn't have a plan to learn some skills and be a professional. And it wasn't written down. And it wasn't checked by a mastermind of other like-minded individuals. My only plan was to go out and puke all over everybody until they hopefully submitted and joined me in doing the same. And that didn't work very well. Which finally ended up years later bringing me to mentoring for free.

I told Amy that if I didn't find a better way to do this business that I was going to get out of it and give it up all the way. I had been offered the e-book for MFF years ago and paid no attention to it for some reason but after what I said it seems I was ready and it was ready for me. Since that time my plans have been falling in line as I learn a better way to do the business and most importantly work on my mindset and that’s where the mastermind part has been a life saver. 

Thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for creating the system that includes this mastermind and thanks to all my partners and friends in it.
