DAY NUMBER THREE: Rewrite Your Plan and Be SpecificIn his speaking programs, Jeff often uses the Jeep example: “Let’s say you want to save up to buy a Jeep,” he said. “You can’t just put down on paper that you want a Jeep. What kind of Jeep do you want? Is it a two-door or a four-door? Is it black? Is it a hardtop or convertible? Does it have big tires? Is it standard transmission or automatic? I want you to be as specific as possible.” You’re not done yet. You also need to determine a time frame in which you will accomplish your goal and drive off the lot in the Jeep. Let’s say you want to save ten thousand dollars. That number is specific, but what about the time frame? “Do you want to save it this year? Do you have a two-year plan? Let’s break this down and come from reverse-engineering from the end result: How much money will you need to save every month to get to your goal of ten thousand dollars?” If you save $500 a month in a two-year plan, you will arrive at your goal with four months to spare. Jeff has another important directive about Day Three: “The other thing I want you to do is to put put the notes for your specific goal or plan in your phone. Put this by your bedside,” he said. “Every single day when you wake up, I want you to look at your plan. I want you to look at your vision.” This is what you should be striving to accomplish every day. “When you wake up, you see it. When you go to bed, you read it first – so that when you are sleeping, it’s in the subconscious, and you’re like – ‘I am going to do this. I got this.’” Make sure your plan is very specific and that you include details. “When you put your plan by your bedside and in your phone, you start reading it – you’ve got to start to feel it. You have to taste it and see it as if this will come to fruition – ‘this will happen for me.’” Yalden said that If you don’t feel it – if you don’t taste it – if you can’t believe what you are putting down on paper – rewrite your plan. “My friends, you can always rewrite your plan, but make sure that what you are putting down on paper is out of your head. And when you put it on paper, get really specific with exactly what you want – and now you have got to believe it.” Every night and every morning when you read your plan, you are working toward something you believe is attainable. “You’ve got to believe it. You’ve got to see it. You’ve got to feel it. If you don’t – rewrite your plan.” Find out more about Jeff Yalden by clicking HERE. LISTEN to this episode of The BOOM Podcast.
