Rhonda Byrne


Did you know that most people do not have a master plan? Do you have one?

If not, it might be a good idea to a) learn what a master plan is, and b) make one for yourself!

Master Plan – The Definiton

The broad but focused(!) line you want to follow to reach your goals. This is like a recipee for your personal fulfillment and happyness. It’s your road to success.

How to build a master plan for yourself:

I tend to do things in a quite structured way, maybe you have a different approach, for me this works quite fine:

Step one: Create a list of your personal, spiritual, physical, emotional and financial goals for the next year – i.e. for 2008.

Step two: Now assign priorities for each goal, start with number 1 for the most important goal, and increase the number as the priority decreases. You can assign the same number to no more than two items!

Step three: Now predict by what date you will have achieved the goal with the highest priority, then do the same for all your other goals.

OK, this is it, you now have your own Master Plan.

Question: How will you achieve your goals, now that you have written them down?

Answer: I suggest you read through this blog, it’s a good starting point, I’ve touched many subjects related to reaching your goals already. You also should – correct my self- MUST listen to a few audio books to understand how much energy you have and how you positively CAN reach any goal you set yourself.

Start off with The Secret by Rhonda Byrne (Rhonda Byrne) and then go on listening to Law of Attraction by Michael Losier .

Once you have listened to these two, I suggest you also download 50 self help classics a great audio book that brings you fifty more authors who all have very valid arguments for your success. By listening to these AND following their advice, you’ll be reaching your goals much faster than what you ever believed possible!

You need a strategy to accomplish your goals.

There is a step by step approach that will bring you to the achievements that you are haeding for:

1. Make a contract with yourself.

It’s OK to think: I’ll do this and that. It’s much better to write your goal on paper and define it clearly. Date this paper and sign it. Then place it where you can see it several times every day. … and keep your contract!
2. Identify specific rewards for positive action.

In this contract you can also enter the rewards you’ll give yourself for achieving certain landmarks on the way towards that goal. Treat yourself to things you really like when you manage to accomplish a specific step!
3. Establish certain penalties for procrastination.

This might work for some, for others it’s not practical. If you are sure that you will also use this intrument when you don’t go ahead and miss a landmark, then enter that into your contract as well. If you know that you will anyhow ignore the penalties, then just leave this part out. No use of stipulating something just for the paper…
4. Break your goals down into small steps.

OK, these small steps really are the key to your success! A large chunk might be just too much to get started at all. So break your plan into smaller mini-goals (the landmarks I refer to above) and make the steps manageable. Then it’s a lot easier to tackel one first step.
5. Schedule a time segment for each activity.

Try to estimate how long it will take to achieve each of these smaller steps and wrtie down, by when you want to reach the intermediate goals.
6. ACTION!

So, now you have a great plan and it looks all nicely organized. This is going to be useful only if you now take action. Do what you planned and enjoy the feeling of having reached each intermediate goal! You’ll see that by following this simple step by step system, you’ll actually enjoy doing what’s needed and the triumph of actually reaching a goal in the predetermined timespan is a feeling that you’ll start to love!

Have fun reaching your goals!

This positive energy and how to cultivate the right attitude is describen in ‘The Secret’ by Rhonda Byrne. It’s a great audio book that you can listen to on the go. This book will change the way you look at your life and how you’ll be setting goals and achieving the results you want!

A Positive Mental Attitude is the key to your success.

Does this situation seem to be familiar:

You enter a room and see a few rather uninspired faces, people moving about with hanging shoulders and seemingly uninterested, even annoyed, are doing their daily chores and you can see that they would give nearly anything to be elsewhere…. ???

Having such a stance and mental attitude is making their day pure misery.

On the other side of the scale, you may have experienced an other scene as well:

When entering a room, smiling faces and friendly words greet you. People are bouncing about and seemingly hardly touch the floor when moving. Everything seems to be fun, feindly words and jockes float about. These people are happy! Happy to be where they are, happy to do what they do.

What is it that makes the big difference in these two images?

It’s their mental attitude. They are working daily to cultivate a positive mental attitude. And they now have made it nearly a habit, soemthing that starts to be natural. This poritive mental attitude is the foundation of success.

Because what you send out also comes back to you. If yousmile at people, are friendly and positive, it’s only natural for others to replicate. You start a vicious circle, but you make it turn the right way round:

The more you are radiating positive energy and hand out smiles, the more of the same is returned to you. That fuels your energies and you can give out even more, more comes back and so on.

Isn’t that great???

Read more about positive energy and how to cultivate the right attitude in ‘The Secret’ by Rhonda Byrne. It’s a great audio book that you can listen to on the go and that will not only educate you on the way of being positive, but this book will change the way you look at your life.

Reading is Great, but if your read an important book, magazine article or speech, you should make sure you get the most out of it.

Here’s my suggestion how to do this: When you come across a thought or sentence that hits you as being important and that you want to be able to use later in conversation or just for your inspiration:

Hold on a moment, re-read it a second and third time, think about it.

Then copy this quotation or motivational passages and memorize it.

Reading ‘The Secret’ by Rhonda Byrne I have marked many passages, and written them into a small book for myself. Using this small book now, I get to the essence of the book immediately and can refresh my memory easily.

Copying the important passages forces you to develop the right mental habits which will inevitably lead you to success.

Listening is an other very important skill that many people neglect. If you catch yourself not really listening to the other perosn when in a conversation, or forgetting immediately what was said, and you want to change this, the audio book ‘Listening – a forgotten skill’ might be just the audio book you are looking for.

Managers and other employees spend more than 40 percent of their time listening to other people but often do it so poorly that the result is misunderstood instructions, misdirected projects, and erroneous actions—millions of dollars’ worth of mistakes just because most people don’t know how to listen.

In this new edition of her classic guide to the art of effective listening, Madelyn Burley-Allen shows you how to acquire active, productive listening skills and put them to work for you—professionally, socially, and personally.

Preparing for a job interview means getting ready to be grilled, getting ready to be your best and show your positive assets. Be also prepared for the interviewers to try and ferret out all the other stuff, things you don’t like to talk about, your weaknesses etc.

Here’s what a potential applicant for a job might be asked by the person screening applicants. If you prepare for these questions and are ready, you will outdo 80% of all other applicants:

  1. Looking back over your career – and your time at high school and college – what are the talents and skills that set you apart form others? What can you do better than almost everyone else?
  2. What made you decide to apply for this position? What is the attraction that this particular opportunity and our organization holds for you?
  3. Tell us which activities in your previous jobs have you enjoyed the most? Which tasks and activities have you had the most success with?
  4. Which activities on the other hand could be dealt with by others in your organization better than you could? Why was that so?
  5. If I were to ask your former bosses and your colleagues about you, what would they say are your greatest strengths and talents?
  6. In you last two jobs: What results have you delivered? What accomplishments are you most proud of?
  7. Now let’s assume we offer you this job amd you start working with us. What would need to be true about our organization, the team, and your job for you to be able to tell your friends half a year from now, “I’m glad I took this job. I made an excellent decision”?
  8. When you leave here, you’re likely to go over this interview once more and you’ll probaly wish that I had asked one question. What question will you wish I had asked?
  9. Do you have questions we have not covered yet?

In The Secret by Rhonda Byrne you’ll find a great set of information how to mentally prepare and to set yourself into a very positive mood. The inner strength you’ll gain from these techniques will help you feel better and thus also make a much better and composed impression on the interviewers.

You can use the Law of Attraction to your advantage, you can concentrate on your goals and create in this way a very strong force within yourself that will send out positive energy. Naturally you have to prepare for the interview also n the conventional way, do your home work and research into the company to prepare. Using a combination of the old fashioned prep work and the mental strength as described by Rhonda Ryner, you’ll succeed!

The Secret by Rhonda Byrne is is a book that has changed and will change many people’s lifes. It’s got all that’s needed to make your life better.

“It’s controversial”

“It’s inspiring”

“It’s bullshit”

… these and many other opinions can be heared about this great book. What it certainly does, it is making people aware, that by acting and believing, by perservering and following a path ot a goal, anything is possible!

The Law of Attraction is ages old and generally accepted, you could say it’s as sure to exist as gravity exists: When you hold a stone in your hands and you let go, the stone falls to the ground. Same priciple applies for your thoughts: If you strongly believe in something, then it will happen. – Naturally, not only by believing….. you’ll also need to go for it. But whilst you are believing in something, actually doing what’s necessary to reach that something becomes a lot easier.

You can use a sort of self-hypnosis to become more disciplined and to work towards your expectations and goals, or you can auto-suggest yourself in a way that you feel healthier and happier. How this all works is described in great detail in Rhonda Bynre’s audio for immediate download:

The Secret by Rhonda Byrne (audio) explains hwo thsi can work for you and your goals in detail. Listen to the audio, then write down what your really want in life, then listen again! The second time round you’ll find hints and tips that will help you reach your goals for sure.

Rhonda Byrne’s book ‘The Secret’ is not ‘just a new age fad’ as some would like to believe. This book will change the lifes of people to the better or to the worse. All will depend how the individual person handles her own life and the challenges associated with it.

Time is a commodity that is precious. Time seems to be free and there seems to be plenty of it at first sight. But time that has passed is gone forever! This very minute you read this sentence will be over in 60 – no, now it’s allready only 50 seconds…. – and then – poooofffff….. GONE FORVER. WILL NEVER BE BACK.

GONE.

It’s just a minute, yes, and there are 60 minutes to the hour, 24 hours to the day. so in total there are 1’440 minutes every day, why worry about one single minute?

OK, you’re right: It’s no good to worry about a single minute, but you need to decide what you want to get out of this very day. If you let one minute after the other just dissolve into nothing, the end of the day will come and you’ll ask yourself ‘What have I done, enjoyed or achieved in these last 24 hours?’

I’m not advocating that you’ll now start to be your own drillmaster and race thought the day trying to catch every single second and fill all the time you have with something meaningful. You also need rest and sometimes to do nothing can be just as enjoyable as working or playing hard. Just be aware of time:

Take time to think and plan. Take time to study and learn.

Think about what you are reading, find ways to apply it to your life.

Use your time so that at the end of the day you can lean back and say: ‘I’ve use my time in a good way!

The audiobook A Guide To Time Management by Andy Guides offers great advice how to make good use of your minutes and hours every day. The Secret by Rhonda Byrne is an other book that will show you how time can work for you.
