Sample Get Statement

My Certification Program Get Statement

Every Monday, I (Marty Dickinson) use a web-based tool we created called the Get Statement Generator. You can see a demo video of it here:

I use the tool to create a Get Statement that I will read out loud every day before I go to bed and when I wake up in the morning to “get” one thing I want by the end of the week.

This concept is based, in part, on Napoleon Hill’s Definiteness of Purpose Statement, found in the book, Think and Grow Rich. The process outlined in my most recent book, Lions Always Win: How to Spot What You Want in Business and Life…and Get it Too, expand’s Dr. Hill’s statement suggestion into a much more thought out and detailed approach to choosing wants and creating plans for attaining them as we finish 2020 and head into 2021.

As a bonus to the book, readers are granted free lifetime access to the web-based tool through a password-protected area on the Produce My Book website. So, if you’d like to use the tool to create your own Get Statement like the one below, order the book here, which is free with your Prime membership on Amazon.

This week’s Get Statement posted below applies to the Produce My Book upcoming certification program for those who wish to earn the badge of Content Obtainer and Guide (COG…as in, the most important cog in the wheel) for non-fiction books using our collaborative writing method.

Marty’s Get Statement Week of December 6, 2020

I am reading this statement out loud with complete passion and conviction as I am already reaching my objective to complete the certification program outline between now and definitely no later than Friday, December 11, 2020.

Yesterdays challenges, such as emergency interruptions and scheduled calls are already being overcome today by applying my experience knowing what the participants will need to be successful.

I feel excited to start promoting this opportunity to professional coaches and can actually see myself in my basement at my desk working on the computer and wearing a t-shirt with flannel shirt and raising my hands in the air shouting, “IT’S READY!!!” as I realize my objective to complete the certification program outline has become a reality!

My plan to use the continued coaching of (name withheld) and my ability to block out 6-8:30 a.m. every day this week is flawless and supported by my (coach) so I can begin next week to start promoting the certification program training to people I’ve already talked to before they forget who I am. I am completely committed to going to bed by 10 p.m. and getting up by 6 a.m. in trade for meeting my objective on-time without delay.

(My coach) will monitor my progress and assure I take daily action toward my goal.

Still, I am leaving the opportunity open to change various parts of my plan that will allow me to complete the certification outline more quickly and with less effort than I imagined!

My mind is completely closed to all negative and discouraging influences, including negative suggestions from relatives and friends.

How to Write Your Own Get Statement

You can easily enough reverse engineer this Get Statement to form your own. But, there’s more to it than just filling in blanks, especially the first few times you create a Get Statement.

The key is to block out a few hours in a single day to take a much deeper look into yourself, your past, and your future, to determine exactly what it is you want in your life and business.

New Years is coming quickly. It’s a time for all of us to take inventory of what we’ve been through in this crazy Covid year and look forward into 2021.

If you’re working on a book as an author, get specific with exactly what you want for your book in number of sales, downloads, leads, speaking gigs, etc.

If you’re a business owner, get specific with exactly what you want for your business in number of leads, converted sales, residual income, etc.

Most importantly, realize for whatever you want, you’re going to have to plan to get. Those plans need to combine several things to make assure what you want to get turns into haves.

Lions Always Win will walk you through that process. I strongly suggest you work through the Lion Charges (better than just saying exercises) throughout the Lions Always Win book and buy a soft cover copy for someone you know who has reached a state of complacency. As of this writing, you can still have it delivered in time for Christmas 2020!
