Success Steps To Get What You Want

How to make your Dreams come True

As Taught by Kevin Trudeau at Montgomery Transcribed by Charles Wilson from his handout and notes

1. Embrace the “Success Principles” 1-22 (Listed below)

  • Read, study, and live them daily.

2. Make a Decision.

  • Success is only a Decision Away.
  • I am going to do “X.”
  • You must be a person of Character.
  • Character = Following through on a decision long after the excitement of the moment has Passed

3. Know what your Dream is for your Future.

  • Dream Build Often. See it, touch it, smell it, taste it, dream it
  • Have a Dream board filled with pictures of your “Dreams”
  • The Plan works IF you Work the Plan

4. Have a Positive Self Image.

  • Love thyself and affirm the many great aspects of YOU
  • Read Maxwell Maltz “ Pyschocybernetics” for more instruction

5. Define your Dream and break it down into Goals and daily Action steps.

  • Have singleness of purpose, a Chief Aim. Know what you want! Be Focused
  • How you Think, What you Say, and What you Do => Determines your Success
  • Goals must be big enough that they motivate you and excite you into action
  • Goals must be small enough that you KNOW you CAN achieve them within 6 months
  • Goals and Action steps must be specific, detailed, and clearly defined. The more you know EXACTLY what you want the more likely you will get it.
  • Goals and Action steps must be measurable so you know if you are getting closer to achieving them. You have to be able to “chart your progress” and “know the score”
  • Your Dreams, Goals, and Action Steps have to be YOURS, not someone else’s
  • Your Dreams, Goals, and Action Steps MUST be written down. Writing things down is the first step to taking a dream, goal, wish, or desire (something you want) and putting it into the physical universe.
  • For Goals and Action steps, there must be a specific time (month, day, or time) when you are going to achieve it or complete the task. You MUST have a deadline!

6. Picture yourself in possession of what you desire and feel AS IF you are actually, right now, in possession of your dream or goal.

  • Getting the “feeling” is the key, and “seeing” yourself in your mind’s eye from the vantage point of looking through your eyes as you would be in the future “activates” the thought vibration.
  • This in turn attracts into your life what you want.
  • Use the AS IF principle combined with a vivid detailed mental image picture. Say OUT LOUD “I AM” statements such as: “I am living my dreams. I am rich. I am financially free. I am in a wonderful and passionate, fun, healthy relationship.” Etc.
  • Do this EVERYDAY, several times a day. Ideally the FIRST THING in the morning within 5 minutes of waking up. And RIGHT BEFORE you drift into sleep.


 * Must be in a state of Allowing! Release, Relax, and Let Go. Be Present and Excited!*

7. Chart your progress and “Keep Score,” so you always know if you are getting closer to your dreams and goals and if you are completing your Action Steps. 

  • Start with writing a list, each night, of the things you ARE going to DO tomorrow. 
  • Write down what you are going to do, and when you are going to do it. 
  • The next day, have your written list with you and “cross off” those things that you do and COMPLETE. 
  • What gets measured => Gets accomplished. 
  • Create your custom success chart template.

8. Do something EVERYDAY that gets you closer to your goal and dreams.

  • Do the right things long enough consistently and success will show up
  • Your effort must be consistent and persistent. Create Success Habits

9. Get the burning desire for your dream and become obsessed with it. 

  • It should be your #1 priority (or very close to it). 
  • If you cannot get a burning desire, then you really don’t “want and desire” your dream. It is only what you “think you should want”. 
  • When you really have the dream in alignment with who you “really are”, you will have an instant, deep obsession and burning desire to attain it. 
  • You will be willing to give up anything temporarily so you can FOCUS SOLELY on attainment of what you desire.
  • Focus on ONE GOAL. Have a CHIEF AIM. Have Singleness of Purpose.
  • “Define your dream and get a burning desire for its achievement.” “The How” will present itself later. 
  • Have Faith, Not F.E.A.R. (False Evidence Appearing Real)

**IF you can define your dream AND have the passion, all the other success steps fall into place**

10. You know if you are “on track” if you “feel good” even if you are working crazy long hours, are totally broke, making lots of sacrifices and practicing forced “delayed gratification.” 

  • Always remember…….FEEL GOOD NOW while in the process of achieving your dreams. 
  • If you are Passion Focused and Amped every day…..then you are in the right place.


11. Keep redefining your Dream and Goals. Keep asking yourself:

  • What do I really want?
  • WHY do I want it?
  • Do I REALLY want that?
  • What am I willing to give up temporarily to attain it?

12. Watch what you say. 

  • Your words have creative power. 
  • Every word you speak is a command you give to the Universe, which in turn obeys and delivers to you what you say. 
  • Words are things. 
  • The Matrika Shakti = The hidden power in the letters of the alphabet. 
  • Your words put out vibrations that attract like vibrations.
  • Use the awesome power of your words to create the life you want. 
  • Adding this tool to your visualization of your dreams while “feeling” AS IF you already have it is the secret formula for manifesting into your life what you desire. 

**The whole Universe will conspire to give you what you want. The impossible will happen in your life. You will not know “how” your dream will manifest, but through a series of sometimes strange events, circumstances, or coincidences, your dream will become your reality.**

“When you define your dream and get a burning desire for its achievement, it works so fast, it’s frightening.”

~Napoleon Hill

  • You don’t know what you don’t know. 
  • Be open to changing your opinions. 
  • Be willing to go 1 step back in order to move 2 steps forward.

7. The Training Balance Scale = Attitude/Skills

  • Spend most of your “training” on your attitude: The WHY, Your Dream, Your Thoughts and Feelings. 
  • Spend some of your training time on learning “The How”: techniques, methods, processes.

**The Why = 90%  The How = 10%**

 8. Define your dream and get a burning desire for its achievement.

  • ALL successful people and high achievers do this to an extremely high degree. They know what they want and are obsessed with getting it. 
  • Dream BIG DREAMS!

 9. To be a Master, you must master the basics.

  • Focus on the fundamentals.
  • You can only build as high as your foundation is deep. 

10. The 4 steps to learning and mastery 

1. Unconscious Incompetence

  • You do not yet know, that you do not know. 
  • You are unaware of your incompetence or lack of knowledge.

2. Conscious Incompetence 

  • You know that you do not know. 
  • You are aware of your incompetence and that you have a lack of knowledge.

3. Conscious Competence 

  • You must think about applying the success principles.

4. Unconscious Competence

11. Dream-Goal-Action Steps

  • Dream = Long term (more than 5 years) 
  • I “MIGHT” be able to achieve this.
  • Can be vague and will change as time goes on. 
  • No time limit as to when you will get this.
  • Goal = short term (6 months) 
  • I “CAN” achieve this.
  • Needs to be specific with a time when you want to achieve it
  • Action Steps = daily, hourly

*Successful people have a mindset that unsuccessful people don’t.*

12. You can Be, Do, and Have Anything you desire, within reason.

  • The Magic is BEING the person you want to be, which will motivate you to DO the right things long enough consistently. 
  • The combination of what you are vibrating and your actions will get you what you want.

*“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and bring itself to believe, the man can achieve.”*

13. The Law of Attraction

  • Your brain sends out vibrations based on your thoughts and feelings and will attract into your life people, situations, events, and circumstances that are a vibrational match to what you send out. 
  • Thus, you can “attract and manifest” what you want by thinking about it, seeing yourself already in possession of it, and feeling now AS IF you already have it!
  • Everything in the Universe is energy and you create your reality with your thoughts. 
  • Send out the vibrations that you want to receive.

14. The Strangest Secret

  • You become and GET what you think about most of the time.
  • Your thoughts are very powerful things! Your body doesn’t know the difference between imagination and reality.
  • Imagination is infinitely more powerful than willpower

15. Do what you Love!

  • When you do what you love you are never “working”
