STEP 2: Draw a line connecting your before and after statements.

STEP 3: Next is the critical part of this exercise. On this line write down what needs to happen in order to achieve that goal.
第三步:下面就是這一方法的決定性部分。在這條線上寫下實現這個目標需要做什么。

To answer your question, let’s go to step four…
為了回答你的問題,我們來看第四步…

STEP 4: Do it!
第四步:行動!

STEP 5: Be 100% accountable for YOUR actions.
第五步:對“你的”行動負全責。

“But… but… it’s difficult.”
“但是…但是…太難了。”

“But… but… I don’t know how.”
“但是…但是…我不知道怎么做。”

“But… but… nobody helps me.”
“但是…但是…沒人幫我。”

“But… but… I don’t have the money.”
“但是…但是…我沒錢。”

Yes, excuses will ALWAYS be your shortcut to your comfort zone.
是的,借口永遠是通往舒適區的捷徑。

Every time you find yourself complaining about your current lack of “success” in life… go back to your worksheet and revisit step three and four.
每次你抱怨生活中缺乏“成功”時,回頭看看你的任務表,重新審視第三步和第四步。

STEP 6: Repeat indefinitely until goal is achieved.
第六步:無限重復直到目標達成。

Never forget this:
永遠不要忘了:

Who you BECOME tomorrow starts with what you DO today.
你今天的行動成就明天的自己。
