Have you had more than your fair share of misfortune in business or in life in general? Well, a Plan of Action is the key to success.

There is a very simple and straight forward equation to use when creating a plan of action, which states that:

Desire + Action = Results

It is only continual results on short term goals that can lead to success. If you still feel stuck and do not know where or how to start, then try these practical suggestions. I use them continuously to increase my momentum towards success.

1 - Write down what exactly it is that you desire.  If it is wealth, good health, personal prosperity or whatever you so strongly long for, then just write it down. Just do it. It is part of the process and is an important start. 

2 - List the ways in which you plan on achieving optimum results. What do I personally need to do to see this plan come to fruition? This is the HOW TO part. Here you look at what worked in the past and what did not. Here you also look at new creative ideas you can try.

3 - Set up a schedule outlining each step that needs to be taken. Be specific and create a daily "to do" list.  At the end of the week you will be able to see how much you were able to accomplish. 

4 - Make a commitment to yourself to "Work the Plan".  Stay focused on the positive and list all the strengths you possess that will help you to complete your plan.

5 - Know your weaknesses and make a concerted effort to overcome them.  Incorporate both your strengths and weakness into your plan of action.  Some people forget what their true capabilities and shortcomings are. 

6 - Have your own personal reward system in place.  After each accomplishment that you have fulfilled throughout your plan, congratulate and reward yourself. This could be in the form of a small treat like attending a business breakfast or going to the see an inspirational movie.

7 – Create your own daily success routine. Remove and distance yourself from negative thinkers. Engage actively with like minded positive thinking people, because success breeds more success.

Your success “Plan of Action” will not be all plain sailing at the beginning. It will take time as you adjust and create your own winning formula.

Believe and expect your goals to be achieved. Do not let it merely become a talked about fantasy on Facebook. Rather, take a little focussed action each day so that it moves from being a fantasy into a theory (meaning it could be possible) which will then soon become an expectation which you will become determined to see through.
