DOWDY'S SUCCESS FORMULA 66
(Three years after my son and I developed this formula we were became
"Debt Free" except for a few houses we own)
years after we developed this plan, my son graduated from Chapman University
and two weeks later
we sent his last payment to the University.
BUT EFFECTIVE: You must work at least one (1) hour for yourself and your family for every eight (8) hours that you work
for someone else .... following this simple formula changed my my life is ways that one can hardly imagine.
Explained as follows:
For every 60 minutes
that I work for any employer for any reason, (where I receive a W-2), I will also work at least 6 minutes for myself and my
family, so help me GOD! What this really means is that for every 60 minutes I work for anyone in a wage earning capacity,
(for which I receive a W-2), I would also work at least six minutes for myself and my family in an effort to build a better
one habit changed our finanical lives! Let me say this: Without my son's help in the implementation of this formula,
it would have never worked. What was his role ... to be a good kid and a good student. He is now working on his BCBA,
(PhD in Behavior and is expected to finish by Dec 2019). Point being: You must get everyone in your immediate family
involved ... no exceptions!
This equates to about about five (5) hours per day. Following is what I did during those five hours:
#1. Start an exercise plan, (check with
your doctor first), - A healthy body fuels the mind
#2. Start doing things that forces you out of your comfort zone.
#3. Start reading and studing people who are successful in
areas that I was interested in (I did not study actors because I had no interest in becoming an actor) you got my meaning
#4. Don't get locked
into something just because you studied it in College. My major in college was mechanical engineering and I was also
a military science student! After graduation I went directly into the military. I never spent a day working as a mechanical
engineer and my war fighting days have long been over ... get my meaning! There are many other things you could
be doing, have no fear ... jump and learn how to land on the way down. And don't worry, the parachute will open ...
if it don't yours worries will be over ...
If you begin doing just some of the things identified above ... you will soon find your niche.
If not, call me! And once you do ... you are on your way to better health and finanical freedom!
Dowdy's Axiom: If you want to be successful
in life you need to make sure your family, to the maximum extent possible, is on board with you. You simply must try
and maintain what Zig Zigler calls, "Your Home Court Advantage"!
Learn how we applied this formula in the following areas:
This is where my son stepped out on his own:
"the Colonel" & Randy
Carlton Dowdy, US Army, (Ret.).
"Never assume that your best
days are behind you .... it is almost never true!" - "the Colonel"
