Business startup success is possible for everyone. But how can you make business startup success more than possible.
Lately I’ve been fascinated with the short, but sometimes challenging, journey between possibility and probability.
Possibility holds the energy of hope. Possible means it could happen.
Probability holds the energy of optimism and a more confident expectation. Probable means it’s likely to happen.
How do you move from possibility to probability?
Planning for business startup success is more about taking a choice when you see it. Often we aren’t even aware of where we are – so really we are lost. When lost, we fall prey to states of delay, doubt and confusion. Action always improves clarity because it changes perspective.
Here’s a simple way to locate where you are in any meaningful pursuit. I’ve dubbed it the Authentic Cycle of Probability.
We can’t claim we’re lost when we know where we are. Identifying where you are on this cycle will allow you to remove excuses and focus all of your energy on the next obvious step.
We forget that any movement works. Too often we put our lives on pause because we seek the magical, and elusive, state of certainty. By staking your claim on this map of probability, you’ll tilt the odds of completion in your favor.

- Decision is a bold declaration of intent on a clear and meaningful objective.
- Focus is laser-like concentration on that objective.
- Massive Inspired Action is engaging a variety of fierce and creative actions to manifest your objective.
- Momentum is energy gained by the movement of following through.
- Gratitude is the causative energy of appreciation that blesses us with ease and greater flow.
- Celebration is self-acknowledgment and recognition for successfully completing every small step.
- Completion is the triumphant achievement of our objective and our signal to proceed forward to the freshness of discovery.
At completion we can honor ourselves by pausing in fulfillment, gratitude and celebration – as long as we feel really good about it. We only need rest and relief when we are toiling in some unaligned, meaningless realm. If we are shooting for the right moon and hitting it, then the energy of completion organically causes us to discover our next mark.
