PERSONAL SUCCESS & LEADERSHIP   WORKSHOP

1ST ONE-HOUR SESSION

RECIPES
What is a recipe?
Ever followed a recipe?
If 2, 6, 10, or 100 people follow the same recipe, will they get the same results?
(Hint: IF they follow it precisely)

RECIPE FOR SUCCESS
1. Decide what you want (dreams/desires/goals)
2. Determine needed resources (knowledge/people/equipment/etc.)
3. Determine the steps to take (plans/do lists)    (www.PSLinstitute.com/plans.html)
    ("By the mile, its a trial; by the yard, its hard; by the inch, a cinch!")
4. Set up a time-table (calendar/schedule)
5. What do I need to do Today? … First? Second? … morning? afternoon? evening?
6. Visualize the day in your mind, doing each task, one-after-the-other.
7. Take ACTION! (Start ... "act out" what you visualized)
(There’s not enough time to do everything; but plenty to do the most important things! -- You must decide)

HOW YOUR MIND WORKS
Your mind is an automatic goal-striving "mechanism"(Psycho Cybernetics, by Maxwell Maltz)
    When consistently/routinely focusing on a goal, the mind will automatically "work out" the "path" to it
Long Range Goals provide DIRECTION
Short Range Goals provide MOTIVATION   (go to www.PSLinstitute.com/success.html)
Goal Completion instills SELF-CONFIDENCE (Success breeds Success)
Focusing on goals/plans must be a daily routine … especially at the start of each day
    At the end of the day, review progress and feel the "exhilaration" of small successes!

CREATE A MASTER LIST OF DESIRES/GOALS
This will include what you want to become, do, have, where you want to go, people you want to know/get close to, habits you desire. Share a few of these with the rest of the class (if you so choose)! This list can/ should be organized into categories (family, physical, educational, spiritual, financial, social, career, etc.)

ASSIGNMENTS
1. Write your Life Script (pretend you are at the end of your life and you have accomplished all your desires. Write down a "history" of what you did and how/when you did it (and, perhaps, who you did it with)!
2. Select a specific goal (or set of goals) that you can/will complete in one week. This can be a step goal or series of step goals toward a major goal. Take action during the coming week to complete this goal/these goals!
Be prepared to share portions of your life script and the goal(s) you accomplished (if you so choose) at our next session in one week! Have FUN in fulfilling these assignments. No one is going to "make" you do them. Your success in life rests solely on YOUR shoulders! ("If it is to be, it is up to me!")

Why Report Back?!

Probability of Implementation –
1. Hear an idea that you like (10%)
2. Consciously decide to adopt the idea (25%)
3. Decide when you will do it (40%)
4. Plan how you will do it (50%)
5. Commit to someone else that you will do it (65%)
6. Have a specific future appointment with the person you committed to, at which time you will report to him whether you have done it. (95%)   ("This above all: to thine own self be true …", Shakespeare [Hamlet]) (www.PSLinstitute.com/followup.html)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2ND ONE-HOUR SESSION (1 week after the 1st session)

REPORT BACK
1. Life Scripts (all or portions, depending on length)
2. Goal(s) Accomplished (how you did them, and any feelings you’d like to share about achieving them) This reporting is voluntary … we want to hear about your successes (& celebrate together)!

ACHIEVING ANY GOAL REQUIRES FOCUS …
HOW DO YOU FOCUS? … TRY "IMPRINTING" --

1. Visualization (get/display pictures of your goals)
2. Affirmations (for each picture/goal) (ex: "I am a great violinist. I play for large audiences.")
3. Feel the Emotion (imagine/feel the emotion you would at the time each goal is being fulfilled!)
(from the book, Advanced Formula for Success … go to www.PSLinstitute.com/imprinting.html)

ONE GOAL – YOUR CAREER ( ... UNDECIDED?)

A FINAL WORD
The greatest "tool" to assist you in your journey of success* is a gift given to you free – your mind! USE it, and it will serve you well! Also realize – love is the greatest power in the universe. Do something nice for others … and they will bend over backwards to "return the favor!" (i.e. the "Golden Rule")
* Indeed, success is a journey, not just a destination. It is a "mode of travel" … a daily habit!
