Whether as a family or as an individual, change cannot happen unless you are ready for it.

Stage 1: Compelled by authority to change.

Stage 2: Comply to escape criticism. (“It’s when everybody expects you to do it, so you fulfill their expectations.”)

Stage 3: Intellectually aware of the need for change.

Stage 4: Mentally and emotionally self-motivated by change.

Stage 4 is when you can honestly say....

‘I am so sick to death of this that I will not put up with this for another second, for another minute of another hour of another day. I don’t care how scary it is, I don’t care what’s on the other side, I will not put up with this for another second. I will change this. I don’t care what it takes.’ That’s when you get change!” – Dr. Phil

1. Claim it! Champions are very clear about what they want. Do you have a very clear definition of success?

“I can tell you how it's going to look. I can tell you how it's going to feel. I can tell you how it's going to smell. I can tell you who's going to be there when it happens. I can tell you everything about it.”

Provide rich detail of your success:

2. Have A Strategy: Champions have a strategy for getting from where they are to where they want to be.

Write out a strategy for success and break your goals down in measurable terms:

3. The Universe Rewards Actions: Champions don’t stand around with good intentions.

What actions are you taking to reach your goals?

4. Willing to Take Risks: Champions do not live in a comfort zone.

What scares people the most if you succeed?

What are some ways to get out of your comfort zone?

5. Deal with Reality: Champions do not kid themselves and are not people that live in denial.

What are some issues you are not dealing with?

How can you “work” the problem?

What are some steps you can take going forward?

6. Nucleus: Every single Champion surround themselves with people that want them to succeed. They surrounded themselves with like-minded people that share their passion and want them to do well.

Name the people in your life that want you to succeed and how you know.

7. Passion and Excitement: The last characteristic that goes along with nucleus because it is what bonds people together is passion and excitement.

What are you passionate about? What excites you? Are you actively doing what you are passionate about? If so, how? If no…WHY NOT?
