At the “Taking Your Dreams from Design to Destiny” Conference on Jan. 15, 2011 participants were given an opportunity to go through the 7 steps below to create a draft of their Success Plan to take it to the next level in 2011! We started on 1.12.11 with step 1 (see below post dated 1.12.11).

Motivational speaker Zig Ziglar said, “You do not pay the price of success, you enjoy the price of success.”
Once you have achieved your goal or your Vision of Success it is very important that you acknowledge this. Don’t just rush off to your next goal as if you take this for granted. You should reward yourself, give yourself credit and allow yourself to feel how good you feel. This enjoyment will encourage you to repeat your success in other areas. Gratitude is also a very important thing here. You must express gratitude for reaching your goals and share this success with others. The amount of gratitude you express is directly proportional to the amount of success you will experience.

Keep a list of things that are rewarding to you handy. This could be anything from a day off to a massage to a week long vacation. Whatever you decide be sure to follow through. Also have small rewards handy for when you accomplish small goals or achieve milestones along the journey. For example because I wrote a section of my book today on women living their visions I am now taking my dog Rex to the river for a nice peaceful nature walk. I will allow myself to really just be there and experience it as a reward for all the stuff I accomplished today.
Because the written word can be so powerful consider writing a letter of thanks to whatever higher power you have or perhaps to the universe. Put many details in this letter that tell how you feel and what you have achieved. Share your story with your friends so that they might be encouraged.
