23-18 The Rule of Five

Download and color this week’s
Mandala of the Week

This week’s MotW is inspired by Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles”, namely Principles #23 and #24: The Rule of Five and Exceed Expectations respectively. With regards to the rule of five, Canfield states: “This simply means that every day, we do five specific things that will move our goal toward completion.” Regarding exceeding expectations he states: “…[high achievers] experience not only greater financial rewards for their extra efforts but also a personal transformation, becoming more self-confident, more self-reliant, and more influential with those around them.”

Over the next seven days, I’ll be delving deeper into these principles via multiple colorings of this mandala and posting them on the Mandalas of the Day. My plan this week is to apply the rule of five where appropriate and explore this idea of exceeding expectations.

So how about you? Would you be able to do five things a day to move closer to you goal? Do you do enough to get by? Or do you add a little extra to your efforts?

“Success is the sum
of small efforts,
repeated day in
and day out.”

I invite you to color along with me this year as part of what I’m calling “The Year of Self-Exploration and Expansion” with all of my “Mandalas of the ___” (day, week, month, year).
