A goal or intention without specificity;
and a due date,
is nothing more than a wish;
and has very little torque or power.
If you happen to just be joining the series, I encourage you to go back and read the last two installments.
To fully understand this third strategy necessitates we dive a little bit (not too deeply), into science.
Everything in this universe from a pine tree,
to a Porsche to a palace to a planet
is comprised of energy.
Think big things.
Get big energy.
At the most basic level of existence, everything is energy. What we know about energy is that it vibrates. In science we call that vibratory rate a frequency.
Stick with me.
Energy manifests according to quantum physics as both a particle and wave. Let’s call the wave state the “spiritual state” or the state of no form.
Conversely the particle state is where energy begins literally to particulate and eventually come into form.
Still with me?
The energy frequency of waves has been measured from a couple cycles per second (CPS) which are very slow moving waves.
Actually moving so slow that they appear to not be moving at all.
All the way up to the highest wave vibrations we’ve been able to detect cosmic-waves.
Cosmic-waves are oscillating at 10 billion, billion CPS. How fast is 10 billion, billion?
It’s 10 followed by 18 zeros.
Pretty damn fast.
Finally, we know that physical forms, while still energy, are slow moving energies. While cosmic waves, gamma waves, ultra violet and many others are non-physical and they move much faster.
So you might be thinking, “James, what the hell does this have to do with strategies of Titans?”
Okay, physical forms have slower frequencies, right?
So to bring the energy waves from the non-physical realm of thoughts to the physical realm of results you must turn the wave into a particle. Are you with me?
And the way you do this is by making your goals and intentions super specific and measurable.
A vague goal or intention creates vague results
A specific intention creates specific and measurable results.
While this may seem “common knowledge” to the most seasoned individual in personal performance, I can assure you it’s not commonly practiced.
What appears to be common knowledge
is rarely commonly practiced.
I can’t begin to tell you how many personal coaching clients I’ve worked with that have vague and ambiguous intentions for their life. And even less have specific action plans to achieve their intentions.
I remember talking to one gentleman years ago who stated, “God told me I’m going to make a million dollars this year.”
I replied, “Really? That’s great! Doing what?”
He responded, “I don’t know, it’s just going to happen.”
Now please don’t think that I’m discounting the ability for somewhat incredible, often borderline miraculous, things to happen from time to time; I’ve had some pretty amazing things materialize in my life just in the nick of time.
But what I am suggesting from experience is these serendipitous occurrences have a greater likelihood of happening to those who prepare and do their work.
Fate favors the prepared and the bold.
You have a much greater likelihood of experiencing Jung’s synchronicities when you’re in the right place at the right time, to meet the right people, get the right opportunities, to make the right decision, and get the right results.
There is no magic in life but life is magical.
Here are just a few examples for your consideration:
“I’m going to get in better shape.” Becomes…
“I’m working out 4 days per week and weigh a healthy and fit 185 pounds.”
“I’m going to be a better parent.” Becomes…
“I’m spending a minimum of one hour per week one-on-one with each of my children, talking to them about their favorite life topic or doing something they enjoy.”
“I’m going to build a successful business” Becomes…
“I’m building a business generating a minimum of $100,000 dollars in profit per year selling online subscriptions.”
I think you get the point.
The more specific and measurable your intention, the greater the likelihood that you’ll experience it. In this way only does the energy wave become a particle.
If you can’t measure it you’ll never hold it.
And the journey continues…
Stay Awake, Love Life, and Be Epic!
