An actionable guide for quickly improving one’s wealth, personal development, and happiness
Successful people don’t sit around waiting for everything to be ‘100%’ right or to be ‘absolutely sure’ they will succeed. They don’t need absolute assurance, because they realize life doesn’t provide any. To get what they want out of life, they set specific goals and put together a formal plan to achieve those goals, one step at a time. Successful people know that the cost of failure is modest compared to that of inaction. Failure means they are smarter the next time. Inaction means there is no next time-there’s only a lifetime of regret. In The Pledge: Your Master Plan for an Abundant Life, author Michael Masterson reveals how to become successful-and not just financially, but in every area of life. The book
Offers simple tips to making immediate changes and to establishing long-term goals
Details strategies on becoming more productive at the office and defeating depression
Explains why simplifying goals into four major ones makes them much easier to achieve
The Pledge teaches readers how to start and finish projects they have been dreaming about for years, boost confidence, strengthen skills, build wealth, and enjoy life.
From the Inside Flap
Have you held dreams of success and happiness that you’ve failed to fulfill? Do you sometimes feel that, however much you’ve done, you are still, in part, an underachiever?
If so, there is good news. Your past failures have no bearing on your future. And if you can change the way you approach your work, you can change the way you live.
In The Pledge: Your Master Plan for an Abundant Life, bestselling author Michael Masterson teaches you how to reinvent your life by putting together a personal master plan. It’s a formal contract between the person you are today (fed up with the problems and lack of success you’ve been having) and the person you have decided to be (the successful you who is healthy, wealthy, happy, and wise).
Masterson’s unique approach to creating a master plan will change your life immediately and forever. It is based on the best principles of the great personal productivity masters (such as Dale Carnegie and Stephen Covey) and on discoveries he made during his climb from indebtedness to multimillionaire status.
You will discover how to transform nebulous ambitions into specific objectives and how to apply them to the most important people, projects, and processes that will give you success.
The Pledge is not a book on goal setting. It is a blueprint for fundamental change. Once you have experienced even one day of Michael’s revolutionary system, you’ll be hooked for life.
Through his writing and personal coaching, Masterson has changed the lives of countless people. His office walls are covered with personal letters from people from all over the world who credit him with transforming their lives. Now it’s your turn.
Once you set up your personal master plan, your effort will be minimal. You will start to see results immediately. You will have more money, more success, and more time to do the things you love. Most importantly, you will immediately begin to experience a truly fulfilling life.
In The Pledge, you’ll learn:
