9780470922408: The Pledge: Your Master Plan for an Abundant Life

An actionable guide for quickly improving one's wealth, personal development, and happiness

Successful people don't sit around waiting for everything to be "100%" right or to be "absolutely sure" they will succeed. They don't need absolute assurance, because they realize life doesn't provide any. To get what they want out of life, they set specific goals and put together a formal plan to achieve those goals, one step at a time. Successful people know that the cost of failure is modest compared to that of inaction. Failure means they are smarter the next time. Inaction means there is no next time-there's only a lifetime of regret. In The Pledge: Your Master Plan for an Abundant Life, author Michael Masterson reveals how to become successful-and not just financially, but in every area of life. The book

  • Offers simple tips to making immediate changes and to establishing long-term goals
  • Details strategies on becoming more productive at the office and defeating depression
  • Explains why simplifying goals into four major ones makes them much easier to achieve

The Pledge teaches readers how to start and finish projects they have been dreaming about for years, boost confidence, strengthen skills, build wealth, and enjoy life.

From the Inside Flap:

Have you held dreams of success and happiness that you've failed to fulfill? Do you sometimes feel that, however much you've done, you are still, in part, an underachiever?

If so, there is good news. Your past failures have no bearing on your future. And if you can change the way you approach your work, you can change the way you live.

In The Pledge: Your Master Plan for an Abundant Life, bestselling author Michael Masterson teaches you how to reinvent your life by putting together a personal master plan. It's a formal contract between the person you are today (fed up with the problems and lack of success you've been having) and the person you have decided to be (the successful you who is healthy, wealthy, happy, and wise).

Masterson's unique approach to creating a master plan will change your life immediately and forever. It is based on the best principles of the great personal productivity masters (such as Dale Carnegie and Stephen Covey) and on discoveries he made during his climb from indebtedness to multimillionaire status.

You will discover how to transform nebulous ambitions into specific objectives and how to apply them to the most important people, projects, and processes that will give you success.

The Pledge is not a book on goal setting. It is a blueprint for fundamental change. Once you have experienced even one day of Michael's revolutionary system, you'll be hooked for life.

Through his writing and personal coaching, Masterson has changed the lives of countless people. His office walls are covered with personal letters from people from all over the world who credit him with transforming their lives. Now it's your turn.

Once you set up your personal master plan, your effort will be minimal. You will start to see results immediately. You will have more money, more success, and more time to do the things you love. Most importantly, you will immediately begin to experience a truly fulfilling life.

In The Pledge, you'll learn:

  • Why traditional goal-setting programs seldom work

  • The Four Rules for master planning your life that will guarantee success

  • How to make quick and correct decisions every day to enrich your life

  • The secret of Accelerated Failure

  • How asking one question will improve everything in your business and life

  • The secret of the 4-Hour Workday (This one really works!)

Most people never realize their dreams. Not because they aren't smart or shrewd or motivated enough, but because when they do make an effort, it is too little, too late, or misdirected. You won't have that problem once you have set up your personal master plan. You will have already begun your journey—a journey that will enrich your life from the very first day.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for The Pledge

"I've been an admirer of Michael Masterson's work for many years, which is why I was so happy to see him tackle the all-important subject of his latest book. What I especially like is that he didn't take the route of many self-development authors and simply offer worn-out, generic advice.?For those serious about improving their lives—personally, socially, and financially—Michael has laid out a clear road map to success.?The Pledge is loaded with practical, simple, effective strategies that really work."
—Robert Ringer, author of To Be or Not to Be Intimidated? and Restoring the American Dream

"This wonderful, warm, insightful book is loaded with great ideas and practical methods that help you to achieve more in every area of your life."
—Brian Tracy, author of Getting Rich Your Own Way

"What a happier, richer, more satisfying world this would be if everyone could be personally mentored by Michael Masterson, as I've been. Unfortunately, that's simply not possible. But here's the next best thing. In The Pledge, Michael doesn't just challenge you to achieve the things you really want. He reveals the specific, concrete steps to make it happen. You can't put a price on this kind of knowledge. And I don't know anyone who wouldn't benefit from reading this book."
—Alexander Green, Investment Director, The Oxford Club; author of The Gone Fishin' Portfolio: Get Wise, Get Wealthy . . . and Get On with Your Life and The Secret of Shelter Island: Money and What Matters

"As a lifelong believer in taking action, I wholeheartedly recommend Michael Masterson's latest (and, in my opinion, greatest) book. The minute you begin reading you will be saying 'Yes! I can do this!' and your success-oriented mindset will take flight. Michael clearly articulates that the doing-nothing method guarantees failure whereas doing something guarantees results. Take the pledge today . . . not tomorrow . . . not next week . . . TODAY! This book outlines your CALL TO ACTION."
—Bob Cox, Director of Early to Rise/The Total Success Achievement Program's Epiphany Alliance; author of Flip the Success Switch and The Billionaire in You
