Day 6

1. Read your mission statement

As mentioned yesterday, start everyday by reading your mission statement.
Remember, it is like the captain of the ship who sets the course of the ship before starting any journey.

2. Be Excellent

Your success will come from your ability to be excellent in everything you think, say or do.


Starting today you will aspire and be excellent in everything.


here is a simple test to see if you were excellent in the last task you performed.

Do you want to tell the world about it?

Do you want to talk about it to everyone?

Are you willing to be judged as a person on that one task?

Are you willing to accept the same work if you were paying someone else?

You will be excellent from today in everything.


Today, Be Excellent!

3. Say Less than Necessary

When you are trying to impress people with words, the more you say, the more common you appear, and the less in control.   

 Even if you are saying something banal, it will seem original if you make it vague, open-ended, and sphinxlike.   

Powerful people impress and intimidate by saying less.   

The more you say, the more likely you are to say something foolish.

4. Set Compelling Outcomes For Yourself

When you create a goal for yourself, you probably write something like this:
- loose weight
- finish project
- buy a car etc etc.

Not that these by themselves aren't goals. But imagine if you could paint a picture, a more vivid, alive picture of what that goal would mean to you, to the people around you. That picture, that intended outcome will be a far more compelling one than the ones mentioned above.

This is from 'The Top 10 Conditions for Creating a Compelling Outcome, by Robert Knowlton'
1. What do you want?
2. What will having that (your outcome) do for you?
3. How will you know when you have it?
4. How will someone else (an outsider) know when you have it?
5. Where, when, and with whom do you want it?
6. What stops you from having it already?
7. How will your desired outcome affect other areas of your life?
8. What resources do you already have that will contribute to getting your outcome?
9. What additional resources do you need in order to get your outcome?
10. How are you going to get there?

Start NOW!
List one GOAL & answer all the 10 questions above...


5. Sharpen the Saw

From Steven Covey | Seven Habits of Highly Effective People

Sharpen the Saw means preserving and enhancing the greatest asset you have--you. It means having a balanced program for self-renewal in the four areas of your life: physical, social/emotional, mental, and spiritual. Here are some examples of activities: Physical: Beneficial eating, exercising, and resting Social/Emotional: Making social and meaningful connections with others Mental: Learning, reading, writing, and teaching Spiritual: Spending time in nature, expanding spiritual self through mediation, music, art, prayer, or service
As you renew yourself in each of the four areas, you create growth and change in your life.

Write down one activity you will do every week towards the four areas of your life:

Physical: __________________________________________ Social/Emotional: __________________________________________ Mental: __________________________________________ Spiritual: __________________________________________

6. Be An Angel

You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want. Zig Ziglar

Help someone, guide, share, but dont talk, dont boast, dont demand anything in return. Be an Angel.
