Are there things in your life that you are having trouble achieving? Maybe you should consider getting the message out to the one person that can help you most – you! If you are going to make something happen in your life, you have to keep your attention on that goal. I’ve blogged about The Secret before – which of course isn’t a secret at all. It’s simply a matter of focus and attention. However, there is one secret that I’d like to share that made the difference for one person.
My son Zak was having trouble making the grade in his high school Honors History class. I won’t reveal what his grade was at mid-term, but let’s just say it was substantially below average. We discussed the situation. We talked about study habits and advanced preparation. He even had a one hour session with a tutor to see if we weren’t missing anything. You guessed it, he is very likely going to get an A – a massive improvement in a couple of months. In fact, because it’s an honors class, an A is actually an A+ in the grading system. So what’s the secret you ask? We recently discovered the secret — and it was right before our eyes. It was Zak’s secret. In his re-organization effort, he had printed a new cover for his binder and appropriately titled it "Honors History." Though we only recently noticed that lying just beneath that title, in quite large, yet, very, very, very faint letters, was a subtle message…. "A+" – exactly what he wanted! There really is no secret – just know what you want – set your "marketing" plan in motion – and don’t be surprised at the results you achieve!
