The Foundation of Change

  1. Recognition of the Need for Change: The first step is acknowledging that it’s time for a change. If you’re reading this article, you’ve likely already taken this crucial step.
  2. Belief in the Possibility of Change: It’s not just about recognizing the need for change but also believing that change is possible. Your belief in the potential for transformation is vital.
  3. Willingness and Commitment: Lastly, you must be willing and committed to the process. True transformation requires effort and dedication.

With these three elements in place, you’re ready to embark on your journey of empowerment and growth.

The D-PART™ Model Explained

The D-PART™ Model is an acronym representing five essential steps:

  1. Decide What You Want: This is where it all begins. You must clearly define who you are and what you want to achieve. Your decisions can lead you toward your dreams.
  2. Protect Your Decision: Once you’ve made a decision, it’s crucial to protect it. This means setting your priorities straight and ensuring that your commitment to your goal remains unwavering.
  3. Assess Where You Are: To make progress, you need to understand your starting point. Take stock of your current situation, including your strengths, weaknesses, and available resources.
  4. Roadmap Your Plan: Developing a plan is essential for achieving your goals. Your roadmap should outline the necessary steps and strategies to move from where you are to where you want to be.
  5. Take Action: Ultimately, success comes down to taking action. Your plan won’t mean much if you don’t act on it. Be proactive and consistent in pursuing your objectives.

Step Zero: Surrender

Before diving into the five steps of the D-PART™ Model, there’s a foundational concept to grasp—surrender. Dr. Godfrey emphasizes the importance of letting go of the mindset that holds you back. Surrendering means accepting that the struggle to achieve something without the right tools is over. It’s about opening yourself up to new tools, new ways of thinking, and new possibilities. Take a moment to reflect on what you need to surrender to pave the way for personal growth and empowerment.

Lesson One: Make a Decision

Now, let’s delve deeper into the first step of the D-PART™ Model—making a decision. Dr. Godfrey highlights the power of decisions in shaping our lives. A decision is like an open door to reality, and it can lead to significant transformations. She shares her personal journey of deciding to purchase her first home at the age of 24, illustrating how a clear decision can set you on the path to your dreams.

To make a decision effectively, follow these steps:

  1. Define What You Want: Clearly state your objectives and what you aim to achieve.
  2. Believe in Yourself: Have faith in your ability to achieve your goals. Believing that you are worthy and capable is essential.
  3. Evaluate Your Choices: Understand the your choices and consider your options.
  4. Identify Consequences: Be aware of the potential outcomes and consequences of each option.
  5. Select the Best Option: After weighing your choices, choose the path that aligns best with your goals.

Dr. Godfrey also emphasizes the importance of knowing who you are, as it plays a pivotal role in your decision-making process. Just as Simba had to remember who he was in “The Lion King,” recognizing your true self can help you make decisions that align with your values and aspirations.

Lesson Two: Protect the Decision

Once you’ve made a decision, it’s essential to protect it. Dr. Godfrey shares valuable insights into safeguarding your choices and priorities. She encourages you to understand your values, as they shape your mindset, attitude, and actions. Using her “Value Pyramid,” you can assess where your goals and decisions fit in terms of their importance in your life.

Remember that protecting your decision involves not only setting priorities but also being mindful of what you listen to, what you say, and what you see. Dr. Godfrey’s personal journey toward debt freedom illustrates how she protected her decision by changing her mindset and surrounding herself with supportive influences.

In this exploration of Dr. Keera Cleare-Godfrey’s D-PART™ Model, we’ve uncovered the foundation for personal empowerment and growth. By recognizing the need for change, believing in the possibility of transformation, and committing to the process, you are well on your way to achieving your goals.

The D-PART™ Model, with its five essential steps—Decide What You Want, Protect Your Decision, Assess Where You Are, Roadmap Your Plan, and Take Action—provides a roadmap for your journey to success.

Remember to surrender the old mindset that may hold you back, make clear decisions that align with your values, and protect those decisions with unwavering commitment.
