Step #3: Develop Empowering Strategies
You’re doing great, so let’s celebrate.
Remember, as you do each step, you should take time to enjoy the process. Even if for just a minute or two, celebrate. Tell yourself you are fantastic, that you’re making progress toward your goals, and that you see yourself hitting the ultimate outcome.
Many of us start the New Year with a new resolution, a new goal, but don’t stick to it. Studies have shown that approximately 80% of New Year’s resolutions fail. Failure has become so common that many people have quit trying.
I believe you can succeed. This is the third step and the fourth article written on this subject with the explicit goal of helping anyone with a dream, a resolution, to stick to it and achieve it. I am providing you with methods that have worked for me over the past 45 years.
My quest to find the holy grail, the magic potion, the anointed elixir, the secret formula has resulted in a seven-step process. Unfortunately, it is just a bit more involved than one mysterious secret can provide; it takes a few steps to get there. But it isn’t difficult or complicated if you move forward bit by bit. Remember the old saying? Inch by inch, it’s a cinch.
If you are willing to take it inch by inch, you can get there. Just take it one step at a time. I know you can do it. You can have new hope in obtaining your deepest desires.
You see, I have studied the best. Anthony Robbins, John Maxwell, Jim Rohn, John Assaraf, Mark Waldman, and Ben Hardy; all have parts of the puzzle, but I am here to give you the best of all of them, and along the way, we will become better at fulfilling our resolutions. I will provide you with a method to fulfill all your dreams if you are willing to take this journey with me.

Now we move forward to the fun part, the action part.
Developing Empowering Strategies.
To reach your ultimate goal, you must take steps and achieve milestones that move you toward your final result.
What you will discover is that it is not having the big goal that makes it come true;
it is all the small steps you do consistently that move you, step by step, toward your ultimate destination.
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
So how do you develop these strategies?
Well, the short answer is you do your research.
Start by reading about those who have done it.
Biographies are a great resource.
Read what others are saying about your goal; use your internet search engine.
Listen to podcasts, youtube videos.
Go to meetings where people are talking about your desired outcome.
Meet people who are engaged in this subject.
Ultimately you will want to meet a person or people (either live or online) who successfully made the journey you are on.
Befriend them, serve them and ask them questions.
Success leaves clues, and one of the fastest ways to accelerate your journey is to follow in the footsteps of those that have gone before you.
Write their steps down and adjust them for your situation.
Then, each day, envision yourself completing them.
This is pathway thinking, and having a clear pathway, one you are committed to, is crucial to your ultimate destination.
Just as a pilot, you must know, see, and plot the course of your destination.
