There is a straightforward path to any destination, including to the destination of personal success:
- Clearly streamline the vision.
- Release the internal blocks.
- Embrace your wholeness.
A little under a decade ago, I subscribed to a program that I initially believed had more to do with time management than with success. Little did I know at the time how intertwined the two are! The creator, Mark Joyner’s concept was wonderful, but in my efforts to utilize his wisdom, hours were spent each morning just getting ready to get ready for the day. I literally filled out half-a-dozen forms each morning, just to get set on the straight path to success. Quite obviously, I was doing something wrong! It could not have been meant to be this time-consuming! Needless to say, I do not practice this lengthy form-filling routine each morning now. HOWEVER, here’s the punch line: I did take something very valuable away from the lessons, and I have since learned that the program has now been streamlined into a faster version (the link to the site is at the bottom of this page so keep reading). Are you ready for the secret? Are your palms sweaty and anxious? Is your breath held in anticipation of the magic formula for success? Well…here it is (possibly paraphrased):
“The straightest path to the goal is the fastest.”
Are you still with me? It’s pretty simple, ehh? And it contains a huge and profound truth that can lead directly to the chosen path, if only the path is chosen.
My work as a gestalt practitioner has brought innumerable gifts. Perhaps the greatest of all is the awareness of awareness. Things are. Sometimes we humans forget to notice what is clearly in our face, to see how things are. There is a forest that often camouflages the obvious. Most succinctly, self-awareness is at issue. When we clearly focus on our self, on our feelings, and on how our whole self (body, mind, spirit) is experiencing any situation, we are offered a veritable smorgasbord of wisdom and opportunities. Our path unfolds in front of us and all we need do is see it clearly, and then commit to taking the most direct path to the destination of our choosing.
Many people will read this, and will agree with the plan. Out of every 100 readers, only 2 will take the controls, will commit to a goal destination, and will take the daily action in order to reach the determined target. Most humans will spend more time watching summer re-runs on the drug tube, than they will spend on planning a life path. Whether due to inertia or due to laziness or let’s be honest, due to fear of success, very few folks will take even the first step towards realizing a dream.
And then they will die with the dreams stuffed deep inside.
In the privacy of your own thoughts, answer these three questions honestly:
If you always do what you’ve always done, what will change?
What are you waiting for?
What will it take?
When you have made the conscious decision to be the captain of your own ship, and when you have made the conscious choice of your precise destination, take the following steps to success:
Straight Line Approach
Streamline focus and clarify the exact vision of where you wish to be in one, five, and ten years. Have fun with this; draw a little life-map of where you’re headed and see the big picture of what the path looks like, backwards and forwards. Mentally travel the path back and forth and really feel yourself taking the journey of your lifetime. Include all your senses in the imagination of you taking this journey. Feel the emotions of success, and hear and see the sights and sounds as you travel. What do you taste when you have arrived? What do you look like on this journey? What does success smell like?
Consciously identify internal blocks; what has been getting in your way of success? Once you have identified the culprits, find the appreciation for the blocks (there is a reward in every held habit and action or you would not hold on). When you can clearly see the appreciation in the behavior or old habituated message, thank it for its service, and gently release the blocks, telling it that you no longer need an excuse for not succeeding.
Commit to fully owning
your power by consciously
replacing the now-released old worn out messages with positive affirmations and most importantly, with laser-focused action every day. To help you stay on track, purchase the downloadable Kindle Edition of Escaping the Chrysalis

Wholeness is not something we chase; it is who we are at our most optimal organic level of being. We are all born whole/complete/perfect in our humanness. It is our divine right to be without the criticisms and opinions of others. It is our divine right and responsibility to prosper and grow and expand our awareness.
Embrace your whole and perfect self and shine the light of positive self-worth. When you are experiencing your wholeness/gestalt, you have more to share with others, and as per the law of attraction you attract kindred resonating relationships. It really is that simple.
Get out a piece of paper and on one half write down 1 goal. On the other column write down 1 thing you can do immediately to start you on the path to that goal. Now do that one thing. When it is completed, cross it off and add another thing that you can do today (within 24 hours) towards that goal. Tomorrow, write down five things you can accomplish within the next 48 hours. When these 5 things are completed, add five more. Continue to do this until you have accomplished this one goal. When you have completed this goal, celebrate; do something nice for you. And then set another goal. Continue this process until you are so successful, there is nothing left to accomplish.
