After studying over 200 people such as these I discovered there were common characteristics and a formula every one of them was using. I call these people The Success Group and I call this formula 'The Linear Equation Principle™.'
The Linear Equation Principle™ is used in my coaching and explained in my motivational speeches in detail.
Here is some summary information:
The Ten Facets of The Linear Equation Principle™
Your Defined Destination: The Success Group have goals. First we will find out exactly what you want to attain. This
will become your defined destination point. However, although defined, destination points
are seldom final. Phil Baker’s equation will show you how thinking beyond your goals is an
intricate part of reaching them.
Your Present Position: The Success Group understood their starting point. The importance of where you are now can not be over emphasized.
When looking for driving directions on the Internet, the first address always requested is
the starting point. Though this seems simple enough, most people and businesses do not
fully assess where they presently are when setting goals. Therefore, although they know
where they want to go, the directions might be wrong, skewed, or inefficient without a clear
starting address (point.) Without a clearly defined starting point, there can be no linear
Your Human Assets: The Success Group exhibits confidence. Confidence is spawned by the power of knowledge. The Success Group had a comprehension of their individual personal assets. When was the last time you took an inventory of your ‘human assets?’ Your human
assets are your specific knowledge, skills, experience, personality traits, and more.
Your Resources: The Success Group understood what resources were available to them. Time, money, personal energy, and assets in their control (World Resources)
Your Commitment Sacrifice: What are you willing to trade for what you want? The Success Group made sacrifices that some people would never consider. If you are not willing to sacrifice something you have for something you want, you have what you want! It's that simple.
Your Assessment: The Success Group believed they could do almost anything. A belief beyond confidence. Where does this come from? Is it reality or fantasy? Do you believe you can do anything?
Your Linear Equation Focus: The Success Group knew how to say no. Often what you don’t do is as or more
important than what you do.
Your Vision: Everyone in The Success Group were faced with the cards stacked against them. What is it that adversity sparks in people?
Your Power Plant: The Success Group was motivated. Do you understand energy flow, action and reaction, and have a burning sense of urgency? How do you maintain motivation?
Your Compass: The Success Group had interesting ways of staying on track. What kind of compass are you using?
