What you have done is claimed this thing by speaking it aloud three times. You have looked at yourself in the mirror and said aloud three times. I am going to "x". You have written it down in non fancy words, plain talk. You have even talked to an antagonist about this thing and suffered through all their egregious reasons you are sure to fail. You stood there and took it. Great! Now let's get down to work. Remember, we are on our way.
Next I want you to go to your closet and get an empty shoe box. Yes shoe box. If you can't find an empty one, take the shoes out and wa-lah! An empty shoe box. Now every day for the next 12 days I want you to put something in this box toward your "x". No more than one thing each day. The type of things you put in the box might include a picture of "x", an article, a check toward "x", a competitor to "x" when it is launched, a list of people on your advisory board, a URL you have reserved. You get the picture.
Perhaps some of you might have a "x" that is quite different. Perhaps you are planning to end a relationship, begin a new relationship, quit a job, buy a house, stop drinking, stop smoking, stop swearing, stop trying to be the man in his house. Perhaps your "x" is to begin showing love, providing your forgiveness, showing up and being present in your children's lives. Same assignment. Get out your shoebox.
The shoebox represents your contract with yourself. When the shoebox is full we are going on a special assignment.
You are on our way! Your God will not allow you to fail.
