'I Want (Part 1)' is the thirteenth in my 'Wealth' series of original copyrighted WakeUp2Wealth Press Releases written by Tom Riach (that's me above) from my home in the sunny south of Portugal.

Wake Up 2 Wealth

Wake Up 2 Wealth's Daily View Of The World!


You may well have heard this before but make no mistake,
following is one of the single most important pieces of information regarding achieving success that you will ever receive. It is
fundamental to success. So I make no apologies for repeating the
advice - “Whenever you have an idea or an ambition to really
achieve something then you
must start by putting in writing your intention.” If you haven't heard that before then take note now!

Power Point - “Whenever you have an idea or an ambition to really achieve something then you must start by putting it down in writing.”

You see an idea is only an idea and nothing more while it is in your head. On that premise ideas are worthless. Everyone has great ideas but only a handful of people ever get round to actually putting their ideas into practice. And the first requirement in
turning an idea into reality, is to write it down! Then the thought
starts to become tangible, to be real. That's why, for instance, if
you go to your bank to request finance for your proposed venture the first thing that you'll be asked for is your business plan. The bank knows that everyone and Tom Cobbly has ideas but what they want to see is that you are made of the right material to turn your idea into reality. Thus they need to know that in the first place you can turn your idea into a written plan. If you can do that then there's a good liklihood that you can also go from plan to implementation.

Power Point - “Turning an idea into a written plan is the first necessary step in progressing from idea to implementation.”

Take my word for it. I'm not the kind of guy to mess about. Check me out by CLICKING ON the photo below.

I Want

My first business ventures lacked a written or any real plan, therefore were doomed to failure. Later I planned well, documented and laid out my proposals and intentions clearly and, as a result, achieved great things. But over time, although I achieved, I found that I didn't always get the material nor the spiritual rewards which I truly wanted from the venture. And in due course I came to realise why this was so. What I discovered changed not only my
attitude to planning and writing down my ideas but also my whole view of why I was in business in the first place. As with most issues in life, the revelation was incredibly simple – there's that word 'simple' again.

What I realised was this – None of my plans included as part of the plan, a list of material things and lifestyle requirements which I wanted to gain from the venture. I'm not refering to generalities like 'success' or 'lots of money', these are far to vague. I mean specifics like 'one million dollars in the bank', 'a brand new Mercedes coupe in midnight blue with beige leather interior,' 'I want to work only three days a week, have no employees, own a villa in the Caribbean where I live three months in the year.' Get my point? Not only that but I realised that my 'I Want' list had to be the start point of the whole plan, the reason for the plan's existence.

Power Point - “Before writing your business plan, start by writing down your 'I Want' list of material objects and lifestyle requirements which the venture is intended to create for you.”

So now, whenever I draw up a business plan, I start with the specific material possessions and/or lifestyle requirements which I intend to create from the venture. Then I design the venture  around these wants and shape it in order that my wants will be realised. In other words, I've made my wants the raison d'etre of the whole plan. They are the only reason the plan exists. And why not? Why would I set up a business project which led me into a life of doing something which I didn't want to do, made me unhappy and provided none of the things, material or spiritual, which I wanted from life? Answer – I wouldn't. Yet many people do precisely that. I've encountered countless business people in my life who are working endless hours in work they don't enjoy, suffering poor quality family life and leisure time, have little or no savings and few of the possessions they'd love to own. And why? Because they didn't start off with, write down and stick with a business plan based 100% on the 'I Want' principal.

By comparison, when my business plans are put into practice, they function with the sole intention of providing me with my wants. In that way, I get from the project those pre-determined wants – no more, no less. Result, one very happy me.

I live and 'work' in the sunny south of Portugal. Need I say more?
