What if there was a way to achieve your wildest dreams overnight? Do you think it’s possible to become successful in a day?

If you’re like me, deep down in your gut, the answer’s (hell!) no. Think about it: Some people dedicate decades to overcoming obstacles so they can obtain accolades and achieve notoriety. Bling-bloaw, what’s up now!

But what if we could save those thirty years of soul-suffocation, remove ourselves from the shackles that constrain us to our schedules, and stop slaving away our lives into a meaningless abyss?

Watch this video to learn:

  • How to become successful in a day
  • The difference between a goal and an intention
  • How to attract what you want into your life

(I know I appear to have a slight glow to me. I have a startling announcement to make: I’m pregnant.)

Overnight success? Yeah, yeah. I know. It sounds like a bundle of over-entitled Generation-Y bat-shit. Mmmmmm… My, my, my.

Rewarding results take work, but success is subjective, and the real work starts with redefining success. <–Click to tweet!

What’s the difference between a goal and an intention?

It was an immersion week of immense wisdom. Three weeks ago I assisted my buddy Mastin Kipp in teaching his Actualizing Your Soul’s Goals class at the en*theos Academy for Optimal Living. And after immersing myself in a plethora of powerful ideas, it’s time for me to add some ammunition to your arsenal.

There’s power in distinctions. Let’s make some…

Goals. We use ’em to guide us toward success. The general perception of achieving success often entails obtaining difficult and worthwhile goals. Agreed?

Warning: I’m about to throw a wrench in your spokes. You may go flying off the handlebars. I apologize for any raspberries and scratches. But if you were going in the wrong direction, it’s worth the tumble.

WTF is a goal?! *WHY* do we set it? And how does it differ from an intention?

Mastin makes a distinction:

  • Goal = a result that we want (Example: to lose 30 pounds)
  • Intention = the feeling that we want to experience (Example: to feel healthy)

A lot of the goals that we have are because our family or our society wants us to achieve them. As a first step, we want clarity on *why* we want to accomplish the goals.

Remember: Goals are a result that we want. But they exist because we want to experience an *intention* (which is a feeling)!

In other words, goals are a means to an end. And that end is our intention!

So while you think your goal is to lose 30 pounds, you’re really doing it so you can feel healthier and more attractive!

We’re blind-sighted to the fact that we set goals so we can achieve our intention. It’s not so much about having the trophy on our shelf – it’s the fact that we’ll feel proud and worthy when it’s up there. It’s not so much that we wanna be happily married – it’s the fact that we wanna feel loved and appreciated. It’s not that we want to make $100,000 per year – it’s the fact that we wanna feel financially free and socially validated. Ladies, you gettin’ this? Fellahs, you embracin’ those emotions!?

We set goals so we can feel feelings.

Here’s why this is so important:

You don’t attract what you want, you attract what you are. <–Click to tweet!

You need to be that which you wanna attract! You can’t lack your way into abundance. You can’t hate your way into a loving relationship.

Figure out what you want, and then figure out how you can be that NOW.

Wanna be loved? Be more loving! Wanna be happier? Express more gratitude! Want people to like you? Learn to like yourself!

How to become successful overnight

Think about your biggest goals. Maybe it’s making a billion bucks per year. Maybe it’s swapping saliva with your soul-mate 10 minutes from now. Maybe it’s saving baby dolphins in the Indian ocean. List 5 or 10 big goals that you have. (You can make them up right now!)

  • One
  • Two
  • Three
  • Four
  • Done

Outta all the goals you listed, pick the goal which you’d like to accomplish more than any other. Go head – be picky and pick one!

Now, imagine yourself actually achieving that, baby. Job. Well. Done. This is the clutch:

What would you feel like if you nailed your goal? If you reached your goal, and this was the reality of your everyday life, how would you feel? List the top 5 feelings!

  • One
  • Two
  • Three
  • Four
  • Done

BOOM. BAM. God-Damn! 🙂  It’s time to redefine your prior perception of what success means to you. THIS IS SUCCESS. Success is feeling the feelings you just listed.

Now, here’s the hack: What can you do TODAY to start to feel those feelings right now? Not in 30 years. Not once you hit some self-imposed marker. Not once you get yourself a company Rolex or set of pearl earrings. Today, tomorrow, and the next day: What can you do to ensure you start to feel these feelings on a daily basis? Remember:

You don’t attract what you want, you attract what you are. You need to be that which you wanna attract.

Pick the feeling which is most lacking in your life right now and schedule a time every day to do something which will enable you to feel it.

Wanna feel more playful? Schedule a time to watch some comedy or chase your cats around the house with a broomstick.

Wanna feel healthier? Schedule a time to go to yoga on a reoccurring basis.

Wanna feel more fulfilled? Schedule a time when you can do something nice for someone with no expectation of any return.

If it doesn’t get scheduled, it doesn’t get done. So schedule it now!


And if this idea resonates with you, and you want to work one-on-one with me, schedule a time to talk with me! I have a few coaching slots open for my two month program. Send me an email at [email protected] and let me know *why* you wanna work together. We can set up a “get to know each other” chat and see if it makes sense. Schedule it! 🙂
