Back to the Future
Published on January 2, 2003
There are several paths many of us are on, most of which will not get us where we want to be.
Do you ever feel like you are running around in circles? Many times this results from not having a clear vision of what you are after. A clear and powerful purpose that is strong enough to keep you focused, regardless of any obstacles that are in your way.
Ever feel like you are sliding backwards or hitting a wall? This occurs from a lack of motivation to do what it takes to reach your next level of success. You are working in a comfort zone and what worked yesterday may not necessarily work today, or you slack off on the efforts that brought to where you are today. Hence, you start sliding backwards. No one can motivate you to do anything if you don’t have any desire to do it. If you have the desire, then other people can help create the environment that will lead you to produce at optimal levels.
Ever feel like you are on speed, just racing forward with no time to stop and smell the roses. This also comes from a lack of focus. The focus is different here. We are now talking about a focus on having balance in the four key areas of your life: Professional, personal, financial and spiritual. It’s great to hit your goals in any of the above areas, but not at the expense of all the other areas.
You can plan for your success or you can plan to do nothing and fail. Either way, you plan for something to happen. Might as well plan on how to reach your next level of success. This means establishing a clear vision of what you want to accomplish and make sure your actions support this purpose. Measure your results in a timely fashion to make sure your actions yield the results you desire. You must strive to maintain balance in all areas of your life. Otherwise, you won’t be able to celebrate your accomplishments.
With the new year only one month old, it is a good time to check to make sure you are heading down the path to your desired destination.
Next stop on this train: Your Future Success!!! ALL ABOARD!!!
