The Four Words Framework to Create Unstoppable Power, Influence and
Create Unstoppable Power, Influence
and Success: Have
you ever stopped to wonder what life would be like if President John Fitzgerald
“Jack” Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, and Dr.
Martin Luther King didn't support and fight for the fair and equal rights for
ALL people? What about Thomas Edison and the light bulb, the Wright Brothers'
First in Flight of an airplane or Henry Ford and the automobile?
trailblazer, Grace Hopper invented one of the first easy-to-use computer
languages, which was a big advance in the field of computer programming. Sandra
Day O'Connor, as the first woman appointed to the position of U.S. Supreme
Court justice, she carved a place for women at all levels of the legal
profession. Helen Keller was deaf and blind before the age of two. Yet, she
accomplished great works that have benefited others tremendously and still
impacts people's lives today. And finally, perhaps no American has been written
about more than Abraham Lincoln. His rise from obscurity to become one of the
great leaders in history is a unique story, and one that continues to
what if these great achievers had not dreamed their dreams? Did they possess a
secret formula for success or were they just that much smarter than every one
else? Clearly, life did not offer an easy street for any of those mentioned
here. Maybe, they and other of our modern day heroes are just born with certain
gifts and abilities that you and I are not. I might be at the beginning of
getting myself in trouble by thinking that these extraordinary people
necessarily did not have extraordinary talent. Maybe, they simply had an extraordinary
belief in themselves. Or, maybe, just maybe they knew the four words that
create power to guarantee success. And, they used those words to accomplish
what they did. Ponderous isn't it?
It is my
belief that all of these people did know those four words. I believe they used
those words each and every day of their lives, and by doing so they became
great achievers in our society. Those words were so much a part of their lives
that they didn't even have to think about using them. It was a subconscious and
a natural act for them. Perhaps in the beginning these specific people didn't know
to use the magical words, but soon realized their power and began to use them
habitually. Ultimately, those words were integrated into their thinking, their purpose
for living, their speech and in turn, permeated throughout all that they were
striving to achieve.
you wondering what those four words are? Do you really want to know?
before I tell you ask yourself this question. If I had the four words that would
give me unstoppable success and influence to guarantee a healthier and happier
way of living, would I use them? With success and influence come power and an
uncanny approach to being held to a higher level of accountability and responsibility.
When you have it or achieve it for your own use, you have an advantage so you
must be deliberate in its use.
where you would use this power to succeed and be more of accomplished. Would it
be used to benefit only you? Would it be used to help others? What about
finding a voice; would it be used to help find your voice? And, what about
others, would you use it to help others to be more successful in their lives?
Would you help others to understand their own unique contribution to ALL of
humanities ills; to identify their passion to succeed in finding their own
voice? Maybe you have another priority but, allow me to be certain with you in
my following statement to you: The power of those four words is, and can be,
the beginning of a truly promising transformation to anyone's life! They offer
a significant potential to change your life. They will change how you see
things. You will look at challenges and problems differently and will find
yourself no longer being afraid. You will notice the miracle of positive
coincidence. What are these words?
me to finally tell you. The four words that will develop unstoppable success
and influence to create power and guarantee a more successful Future Picture
are: “What – Must – I – Do” Wow, that's all there is? Yep, these are the four
words used to create unstoppable power; for any given challenge, problem or
situation you have choices and these words are the doorway to realizing the
positive and influential outcomes from those choices. You can
either ask “why does this always happen to me,” or you could say, “Why does
this have to happen now,” or you could say, “when will somebody (else) do
something about this,” or you could say this:
Must – I – Do that will turn this situation around?”
“What – Must – I – Do that will stop this from happening – again?”
“What – Must – I – Do to take action right now?”
“What – Must – I – Do to get me one step closer to my goal?”
of those four words and ones that are equally as powerful are: “How – Can – I…?
If you put your head to the task to complete the phrase, you'll begin to see
what I mean. For example, “How – Can – I take action now that will change the
status quo?” “How can I…do things differently and get a better result?” “How
can I…change my behavior?” Understanding that more is required, this phrase continues
the work within the process for overcoming life's challenges. The “How can I…
variation also work to introduce the four victory questions in life to most
people: Why Am I
Hurting? What is it about “me” that influences the hurt? How do I prevent
re-injury – although I know that it will be revisited? And, how do I change my
circumstances, current and future? Combined as a framework for a healthy transformation, those
four words, their variations and the four victory questions in life all work to
create “value, size and opportunity!”
now that the economy continues to rebound, smart people have learned to shift
their focus to develop ways of eliminating the behaviors and actions that halts
progress. These timely four words, their variations and the four victory
questions explore new ways to capture emerging opportunities through personal
and professional restructuring or retooling. Anyone who decides to use them will
realize a rebirthing process with a portfolio of proven leadership and management
strategies for driving a greater performance in life that sustains high growth
potential, while experiencing uncontested competition.
framework improves critical thinking, decision-making skills, emotional
intelligence, strategic agility, motivation,
meaning and purpose. Just about anyone can get results for a short
period of time, but it takes a dedicated person who knows how to effectively
manage what they've learned to realize through outcome-based evidence to
unleash their full potential to succeed.
Do you see
how different the combining of those four words, their variations and the four
victory questions in life offer a different way of living? Nobody has the
ability to effect more change over your life than you, so why would any of us
ever seek to ask; “when are they going to…” or, “when will he/she…,” or “why can't someone
else…” or, “why can't this situation be different?” A question with no actionable
answer offers an ugly and unforgiving cyclical approach that ultimately leads
to failure. The answers will never really solve a problem or give cause for a
true call to action. Alternatively, the “what can I do” questions have just the
opposite affect and will give rise to action.
is a reflection of your thoughts, your words and dreams: “You are what you are by the
way you think, speak and act.” The quality of the questions you ask will determine the
quality of those thoughts and the quality of life that we all will live.
Whatever the challenge or problem that you must face in life, now or in the
future, has an answer and you must be able to get closer to that answer just by
asking a better set of questions. An answer may not be evident immediately, but
one will come. In fact, you already have the answer; you simply need to awaken
it with one of those powerful take action questions from within the framework
offered earlier. You can start asking better questions today and witness better
results as they unfold. Alternatively, you can ask the victim questions; “why
this or why that,” and run the risk of never releasing yourself from the hamster
wheel of frustration.
challenge you to begin the practice of asking really good questions. I
challenge you to unleash the power of your own words, thoughts and dreams. And,
I challenge you to adopt a better framework for thinking, speaking and acting
life – and, not just living life – each and every day. I challenge you to get
away from your emotional state of being to try a much different approach. Feel

about understanding the theoretical underpinning that lies within the framework
that develops a positive mental attitude: the ability to learn to look for more
and to achieve greater outcomes in life; getting in touch with the instruction
in life that offers tough love to indentify what your individual drive to
succeed is and how it is fueled (internal passion) – and, to engage in a deep
conversation, while standing in front of, and starring into “Snow White's
Mirror” to ask: “Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?”
the framework requires a close intimate session with the person starring back
at you while standing in the mirror due to the internal demons that will be
exposed if and when the conversation is honest. This conversation will help to
shed away years of pains. Over the years, I had to learn that some of the most
successful people in life needed to humble themselves for the critical
importance of identifying the specific grade of fuel needed in their tanks as a
stimulant to successfully engage one of the most furious emotions of all human
Revenge against Failure to succeed – and, it requires an assessment and greater understanding of
both values and behaviors to understand what adjustments are required and what
actions need fixing.
you that in finding the adjustments and needed actions for immediate action,
those four words, their variations and the four victory questions in life must
be put to use in order to create unstoppable power, influence and success to
achieve more value, size and opportunity. In closing, I'll leave you with this:
“First learn to
lead yourself and then lead others to find their voice…educate leaders who make
a difference in the world by becoming one first.”
