7-Step Success Plan For 2023
Did you hit your Success goals last year?
If you did, that's awesome!!
If not, don't worry, I hear you, it's not your fault,
last year was very hard for all of us...
Now, you've just landed in the right place to guarantee your success results in 2023!
If you want to be more mindful, happy with yourself & attractive this year...
But you're feeling somehow stuck...
Kinda like don't know where to start or how to take the next step...
Like most people in 2022, feeling the fatigue & burnout...
Please understand it's not just you. Don't take it personally.
The entire ecosystem has been very challenging!
I've come to believe a number of things...
That feeling good boils down to a sense of authenticity, connection, belonging, purpose & contribution...
But how can you get to this state of mind given the current circumstances?
I've been discussing this with a lot of my friends and colleagues lately...
And the # 1 question I get asked the most is:
“How Do I Get Unstuck?"
Seems like A LOT of people are searching for something more meaningful in their lives...
People are seeking the freedom that owning their own business can offer them.
People want the freedom to do work that matters, for those who care, how, where & when they want to contribute.
After many conversations around this topic and digging deep into the subject, reading books, taking courses, attending workshops & taking part in online community discussions.
I realized that there's a lot of people out there feeling the same way... defeated, unmotivated, and almost giving up on life all together!
But most of the happy ones though, were those who took the leap of faith,
believed in their selves, had audacious goals & did what make their hearts sing!
So I came up with some conclusions...
I boiled them down into a series of actions... or steps, if you like...
And created a FREE 7-Step Success Plan That Helps You Get Unstuck, Hit Your 2022 Goals & Start Your Dream Business!
Regardless what business you're in. We're all in the business of life...
I'll show you how I plan my year ahead for incredible results.

We’ll follow that with a 100% Free Live Unstuck Workshop to show you exactly how to perfectly execute your plans to hit your audacious goals (including your business goals) in 2022.

Let's jump in!
Step 1: Join A Community
Want to End 2023 with a BANG?
"Surround yourself with people who are only gonna lift you higher" - Oprah Winfrey.
Your Mission Step:
Action: I will help you create a
Crystal Clear GamePlan.
Hit your 2023 goals!
Great, that's your very 1st step, should you choose to accept it.
The Passcode is: Unstuck.
Now, that you've joined the Ikario Community, move to the next step.
Step 2: Choose Your Path
Here’s the truth from a management legend:
“You can't manage what you can't measure.” - Peter Drucker.
Your Mission Step:
Action: Choose Your Path!
In order for you to live up to your dream life, you’ve got to choose.
What’s the 1 thing you want most out of your business?
Not choosing any one thing to optimize for or giving equal priority to everything you do, means only 1 thing:
That you don’t actually value any 1 thing.
You have to understand that what you focus on will grow.
You’ve got to choose your #1 priority & the metric you’ll use to measure when you hit it.
Even if you're multi-passionate & you do many things like me!
You can't pursue all your passions at once. You can't have everything. But you can indeed have any one thing you want at a time.
Let's eat the elephant, one bite at a time.
I'm a Harvard certified cybersecurity expert, corporate lawyer, federally certified horse professional with Equigarde, investor & mentor. I also love painting, chess, playing music & sailing.
You can't reach the top of two mountains at the same time...
But you can choose an overarching theme where you can be all you can with everything that you are & have.
I chose this blog EquiJuri, for example to be amongst the top Equine Legal Blogs in the world because this is the overarching theme that contains what I’m good at & love.
This is the place where I can practice being an equestrian sports lawyer, rider, mentor & investor...etc.
This means I'll give 80% of my focus & resources to EquiJuri & less energy to everything else.
This of the 80%-20% Pareto Principle.
I hope that you too choose something that YOU are good at & love.
So your1st Success Step today, should you choose to accept it, is to:
Choose Your Path!
Your mountain... Your overarching theme.
Next, we’ll discuss how to strategize to hit the goal you chose Now!
If you don't want to wait, keep going to Step 3 below.

Step 3: Strategize In Your Power Hour
"Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory." -
Your Mission Step:
Action: Your Power Hour!
My Strategy Hour is responsible for more growth in my life & business than anything else.
But before we strategize, let’s get aligned on a few things:
Your Imagination Is Your Most Powerful Tool
Make a vision board & hang it on your wall & computer screensaver so you can see it daily as soon as you wake up & before you go to bed.
If you can't see it, you can't achieve it.
A good tool to use to make your vision board is Google JamBoard.
PS. Make sure to include the 1 thing you came out with in step 2 above.
Having A Vision Board & the Feeling You Get When You Look at it Will Super Activate & Align Your Subconscious Mind
This will put your entire brain to work to find the ways & actions necessary to bring your dream to reality.
You can also pray & meditate to tap into the indefinite divine wisdom in the universe.
Notice what you feel when you look at your vision board. Use daily affirmations, they are super-powerful. Visualize. Reflect.
You’ll Get the Best Ideas When You Least Expect Them in the Weirdest Places
Make sure you keep a journal or a device close to you at all times to write down these ideas, bits of wisdom & inspiration.
These gems of wisdom straight from the universal intelligence straight to you.
A great tool I use to capture these amazing thoughts is Google Keep.
With Google Keep you can take written notes (also with your handwriting using an iPad pen), pictures, or record voice notes. Google Keep further transcribes pictures or voice to text. You can also save these notes into your Google Drive or Tasks or Notifications on your Google Calendar.
It's just amazing!
Now, back to the Strategy or (Power Hour)!
All this is good & well...
But all the best meditations, affirmations, imaginations, positive thinking & zen will never get you anywhere without planning the right strategy, tactic & taking massive action to bring your vision to life.
To make your success inevitable.
Now that your subconscious mind is activated, let’s start your conscious mind workout.
This step, should you choose to accept it, is to put 1 solid hour of focus on your strategy.
In Step 2 you picked 1 thing...
Now, I want you to spend just 1 hour (or 50 minutes) focused on putting an execution plan to achieve your 1 thing & how to overcome your one (biggest) issue or obstacle that will stand in the way.
Just 1 FOCUSED hour… any time throughout the day or night.
Scientists say the 1st hour after you wake up in the morning is the most productive hour of the day.
I would say just do it anytime.
Morning, afternoon, evening. It doesn’t matter.
But please, just do it!
Bonus if you do it RIGHT NOW!
What matters is that you complete this most critical success step & get as much out of your focus hour as possible.
Because all great journeys begin with a first step & today you'll take that first step.
Please, if you didn’t finish Success Step 2, scroll up & do that 1st.
Now that you've had your power hour, you can move to next step 4.
Step 4: Write & Schedule
"Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat" -
Your Mission Step:
Action: Write & Schedule
Most entrepreneurs are overwhelmed because they overload their brains with so much clutter & endless interruptions...
Trying to keep track of all the tasks they want to do.
They think what can they do more?
Charlie Munger inversion thinking suggest that you think in the opposite way.
What can you say no to. What can you do less of. What can you take completely off your plate by totally eliminate it!
Everyone's competing for your attentions in all ways possible. Notification, emails, politely knocking at your door, ringtones, emails, questions, picking your brain, pop-ups, sales calls...etc
If you’re letting these interruptions & distractions into your life or space, I encourage you to stop right now!
You being there shouldn't mean you're available.
Set boundaries & protect your time, energy & money from people, things, places, beliefs & habits that are pure suckers...
Keep in mind that memorizing clutter is the wrong way to use your brain.
The education system has developed these bad habits in our routines, unfortunately.
Your brain’s role is to come out with ideas, not to retain them.
Retaining everything in our memories consumes a lot of energy, that we should better save for more meaningful work.
We can easily forget too!
In my experience, the best way to solve this problem is to write down your thoughts, tasks & goals every day before you go to bed.
In this way, your subconscious will also be charging & working at the back of your mind, to find ways to help make your dreams come true. It will give you hints to bring your vision to life.
It's the seed you plant that will become a fruitful tree.
So you don’t waste any brainpower planning in the morning, but you rather wake up in the morning knowing exactly what you’re supposed to be doing.
I also use Google Keep to save notes, tools, resources or references I want to get back to later.
This step, should you choose to accept it, is to WRITE DOWN THE MAIN BUILDING BLOCKS THAT WILL HELP YOU REACH THE 1 AUDACIOUS GOAL THAT YOU CHOSE in step 2.
It’s the Action Plan for executing the Strategy you came up with in Step 3 to hit the goal you chose in Step 2.
Under each block, list a few Steps: 7 (+ or - 2) that you must take to reach each building block.
Following the example of my Audacious Goal of Day 1:
(ranking my Horse Blog on Google) → the main building blocks would be:
Now, block a few days & hours on your calendar to take action on these steps weekly.
If it’s not scheduled in your weekly routines, it’s not real & it ain’t gonna happen.
For My 1st Building Block:
(Define my ideal audience)
Unscheduled tasks are just hopes. Being hopeful is good... But only hoping is not a good tactic!
Check out these "8 goal setting tips for incredible results", if you want to learn how to set & hit goals every time.
I use Google Calendar to schedule my blocks & steps.
Now, it’s your turn to schedule your blocks & steps.
If you don't like waiting longer to manifest your dreams, keep reading...
Step 5: Choose Your KPI
Here’s the truth from a management legend:
“You can't manage what you can't measure.” - Peter Drucker.
Your Mission Step:
Action: Choose Your KPI
Well, How Ya Doin’ So Far?
In the last step, you (hopefully) wrote down your:
- block & steps,
- blocked the time & scheduled it on your calendar with Google Tools.
If you didn't get a chance to do that (or any of the Steps from the last 4 days), it’s ok.
In fact….Statistically speaking, the “Best in Class” only finishes 3 Steps out of 7.
... If life got in the way & you only managed to do 1 or didn’t get a chance to do any,
I want you to know…
We all run businesses…We all get busy...We’re all in this together…
I’m doing this with you too, as we speak!
And I still have an additional goal… To keep my promise to YOU…
The promise I made is to help you GET UNSTUCK & SUCCESS in 2022. Whatever what that means to you.
No matter where you’re starting, what your next step is...
Or even how big or small your business is.
Again, “you can't manage what you can't measure.” - Peter Drucker.
So, choose 1 of the blocks that you wrote down in the last step...
The one that’ll have the highest leverage to move you toward your 1 audacious goal in the simplest, easiest & fastest way.
Now, consider it your North Star.
Your #1 KPI. Your key performance indicator.
Now, let’s figure out a way & a measuring unit to measure it accurately.
Then, make it your 1st priority to improve this 1 metric.
Think of it like the domino that once you move, you’ll connect the dots & knock down all the other pieces.
For my equestrian blog, for example, my KPI is:
- the # of new leads,
- & the metric I use to measure it is the # of signups for my freebie.
I know that as long as I can keep new leads coming to my blog, the more clients I will get. Accordingly, the more sales & profits I make. So as long as this number is improving at least 1% a week, I know I’m doing fine.
Enough about me, now let’s turn it back to you.
Now, what’s your north star KPI & what’s the metric that you’ll use to measure it?!
Let me know in the group!
Step 6: Master Your Principle
As R. Dalio puts it:
“Principles are fundamental truths that serve as the foundations for behavior that gets you what you want out of life.”
Your Mission Step:
Action: Master Your Principle
Choose a few principles that reflect who you are, your true character & values.
Principals that you would like to live by in life & business.
Shortlist these to the most important principle or word that really means everything to you.
Make this principle or word your theme for the 1st quarter of 2023. Then make similar ones for the following quarters.
Use this 1 principle to systematise & prioritise your decision-making process.
Run all your daily personal & professional decisions & scenarios by this principle.
Make sure you implement it at every level of your being, both personally & professionally.
Your mission today, should you choose to accept it, is to write down YOUR PRINCIPLE in your notes.
Step 7: Announce Your Goal!
Here we are. You made it to step 7!
You're among the few who reach the top of the mountain.
While this post is the end of your 7-Step Success Plan,
it also marks your efforts to develop & become a true Master.
Your Mission Step:
Action: Announce Your Goal!
Your last Success Step is to decide on how you can become & remain smart
(at all times).”
You’ll accomplish this by setting a measurable & attainable goal for yourself & letting me know if I can help you achieve it.
So, you can fill out this sentence to hit your audacious goal (hopefully you’ll choose the one goal that has the biggest opportunity for personal & professional development):
"I want to go from (your current situation) to (your desired situation) by (insert a deadline)".
Following my equestrian blog example:
"I want to increase from my current # of leads to 33% more leads for my blog EquiJuri by the end of March 2022..."
As far as the “when”… I strongly recommend a term as short as 1 calendar quarter or as long as 1 year.
There are 3 ways you can go about this goal:
Keep It In Your Head
(like most average people)
Write it down & keep it to yourself
(like most above-average people)
Announce it & commit to it daily
(like exceptional people)
Announce your goal to your loved ones & your circles to let them know how to support you. Don't forget to ask for help if you need it.
Tragically, few people do it…but I hope YOU will.
Today’s Step is also a very important Success Step in your development... personally & professionally.
As long as I’ll be here, my team & I will help you in any way I can, every step of the way.
