Three Steps to Getting Anything You Want

You can get anything you want if you do three things: NAME or describe exactly what you need to create, accomplish or produce, WANT
that result or product, and ORGANIZE to get that result or product.

This article addresses NAME. Future articles will cover WANT and ORGANIZE.


Paul, a highly-successful business owner, was having a difficult time finding a new wife. Because of his status, wealth, charm and social
connections, dozens of single women were attracted to him. Yet after a year of dating, Paul could not find his new mate. “I can’t decide
who I want to be with. It’s driving me crazy!”

So he described, in writing, every characteristic he wanted in a wife. After an hour of work, he became very excited about his list of
qualities. “. . . good sense of humor, likes to entertain, wants a big family, lets me eat snacks in bed . . .” He said, “As soon as I meet her,
we’re getting married!”

Four weeks later he met his mate. He recognized her immediately as he had named exactly what he was looking for. They have been
married for 22 years and have four children.

Get Specific

The more specific you are when you name the product, the more likely you will get what you need and want.

For example, if the boss tells a staff member, “Get busy,” you will see lots of action, but may not see any products. The staff member
accomplishes more when the boss says, “File that stack of papers and make these 40 calls today.”

Parents who name products with their kids have happier, more productive children. For example, “Clean up this mess!” is not nearly as
effective as “Pick up all the toys on the rug and put them in your toy box over there, right now.”

If you push yourself to succeed without naming what you specifically want to produce, you waste time and energy.

For example you say, “I have to get some money fast!” You then jump from one task to another and accomplish nothing.

If instead you say, “I need $5000 by the end of the month. That means I need to produce the following . . . .” And then you name the
necessary products or objectives you need to accomplish. As a result, your chances of getting the $5000 are much greater!

Six Steps for Naming What You Want

Naming your products or objectives is a great way to increase your income, rise to the top in your profession, find the perfect place to
live, pay off your debts, find a great job, hire great employees, start a successful business and so on. When the right opportunity comes
along, you don’t need to think it over for long. You can take immediate action.

Naming your product allows you to focus on the exact thing you need to do, produce, create, accomplish or locate. You can name your
products for the hour, day, week, month, year, decade or lifetime. These steps may help you.

1. Think of something you need or want.

2. Describe this product or objective as specifically as possible. List all the qualities in detail.

3. Include a date when you want to get it produced or accomplished.

4. As you work to get what you need or want, review your description regularly.

5. Every time you come close to getting what you want, but then discover it is not right, revise your description to include the features you
truly want or do not want.

6. If you discover your product or objective is unrealistic, revise your description to fit reality.
