Name It, Claim It, Attain It, and Retain It

In order to get what you want in this world, you have to be willing to name it, claim it, attain it, and retain it. There is almost nothing in the world that is simply dropped into your lap without these steps. Take action now to get all you want out of life. 


If you want to have a magnificent day, name it, claim it, attain it, and then retain it! Our words have power. It is not the pen that is mightier than the sword. It is the words written by the pen that has the power.

Sometimes you have to make things happen yourself. Once in a while, you wake up in the morning and instead of it being a magnificent day, it is just a day. However, you really need it to be a magnificent day. Some people think they are screwed on those days. Not me. I think those are the perfect days to use the name it, claim it, attain it, and retain it system.

By that I mean give a voice to what it is you want. First, you name it. Name the thing you wish to do, to acquire, to be. The second step is to claim it. Say to yourself that whatever it is that you have named is yours. It belongs to you, you possess it. Claiming things is powerful and is a step toward being what you want. Claiming is how you make the world around you what you want it to be. The next step is to attain it.

Once you have named what you want and claimed it, you are on the road to attaining that thing. So take the steps to do the work, do what you need to do in order to attain what you desire. The final step is retention. Once you have named, claimed, and attained the object of your desires, you need to retain it. This means you need to hold onto the thing, and live the life, be the person you have taken all the steps to become.

Nothing good happens by accident or by chance. Good things happen because you put the work in to make them happen. Today is the day you can name the thing you want. Do not wait until tomorrow to claim the life you want. Tomorrow is not when you step up to attain what you want in life. Today is the day you work to retain the thing you have named, claimed, and attained. Nothing works unless you do, so start working now.

African American Woman and the words Name It,  Claim It, Attain It and Retain It


It is easy to say, “name it, claim it, attain it, and retain it.” The hard parts are doing it and believing you can do it. Be encouraged and know that difficulty level does not matter. The important part is that you do it, put in the work, and make it happen. I am not going to give a pithy speech about the journey being the important part. I am not going to do that because when you are struggling to make things work, no one wants to hear that the destination is worth the price of the journey. I will instead share something I heard at church yesterday – there is no triumph without tribulation.

In other words, anything worth having is going to take time and hard hard work. Do not let the knowledge that hard work is necessary discourage you from doing the work that is necessary. Instead, step up, do the work and keep pushing forward.

So the question for you this magnificent day is what do you want and when are you going to take action to name it, claim it, and attain it. More than that, how are you going to retain it once you get it?
