In our world today, there are literally tons of motivational techniques, courses, books, hypnosis, and trial and error. What if I were to tell you that there is another way? A simpler, less stressful way to get more out of li
I present to you, BATESism.
Yes, I made an acrostic out of my last name- and why not? It’s all the help, with a touch of hype. These five tenets will take you “from the poorhouse to the penthouse”.
In life, there will be times where you must pivot. There is nothing wrong with that, as life makes demands upon us to where we must adapt, overcome or regress, degenerate and die. Life itself is a living, breathing thing, as are we as sentient beings. Personal success is paramount to the collective success as a people as a whole- then as a nation, as states, cities, towns and so forth. At the end of the day, it still boils down to the individual. And individually, have you ever wanted to achieve more, be more, do more for yourself? Have you ever looked at something on television, or in the movies and felt some sort of connection, as to say that you want something that has been presented? What is it about life that you just cannot seem to figure out? What is it about YOU that you may not be able to figure out? Do you like where you are currently? Do you even like yourself? Is the yearning, thirsting, and dreaming for what is “out there” reaching a fever pitch?
What is the way you want to be depicted and viewed as? Where do you want to be in a given period of time? In the annals of time, there have been those who break through and make a difference. I want you to be one of those. I want you to teach, instruct, mold and inspire others to greatness. With my concept of BATESism, simply five tenets can change your life if you put in the work. You put in the time, the effort, the careful planning, the EXECUTION of the plans- your life will become something to behold. These five tenets (made up of the letters of my surname) will atomize you. This will be a defining moment. This is how BATESism breaks down:
B- Believe (in yourself): Believe you CAN. Whatever it is that you are looking to do, the first and most important step of this thing is to believe in yourself. Have faith in yourself. Have confidence in your abilities. This is the foundation of “the achievement pyramid”.
A- Achieve: Achievement is “the work”. It is the doing, it is the proving ground. Wanting, yearning and dreaming will have to eventually give way to action. Action, no matter how small, no matter how incremental, will change your circumstances. It will change your life.
T-Total: When it comes time to act, leave no doubt. When it is time to “show and prove”, make such an impression that they will not easily forget you.
E- Excellence: In our world of ever-decreasing standards, expectations and diminished outcomes, be the exception. Be exceptional.
S-Success: This is a no-brainer. Success, getting the most out of yourself at every turn, getting the job done with a definite posture, even a bit of flash and flair is paramount. Maintaining a standard of excellence is not only your duty and your responsibility, it is your trust. It is part of your DNA. It is a major part of your destiny and a big part of your legacy.
Combining these factors with a can-do spirit and a dogged determination to succeed, you will win. Success does take time, but it is worth it. Think of it in this manner: How good will this be for your descendants, your progeny? Imagine what all this will do for your reputation? How your family, friends and all others will look at you, and look to you for help, support and answers. Your hopes, your dreams, your plans and even your schemes can all be realized…
….with just a little bit of BATES.
