Sense Of Direction


Develop a clear sense of direction. This is where you take your dreams out of the air and you crystallize them into clear, specific written goals. You become what you think about most of the time. The two factors that determine what happens to you in life, more than anything else, are what you think about and how you think about it. Successful people think about their goals most of the time.

As a result, they are continually moving toward their goals and their goals are moving toward them. Whatever you think about most of the time grows and increases in your life. If you are thinking and talking and visualizing your goals, you tend to accomplish far, far more than the average person who is usually thinking and talking about their worries and problems most of the time.

Here is an exercise for you. Take a sheet of paper and write the word "Goals" at the top with today's date. Then, make a list of 10 goals that you would like to achieve over the next 12 months. Write your goals in the present tense, as though a year has passed and you have already achieved them. Begin each goal with the word "I" to make it personal to you. The sad fact is that 97% of adults have never made a list of goals in their entire lives.

Once you have your list of 10 goals, go back over the list and ask this key question: "Which one goal on this list, if I were to achieve it, would have the greatest positive impact on my life?" Whatever your answer to that question, circle that goal and make that your number one, most important goal for the future. Set a deadline, make a plan, take action on your plan and do something every day that moves you toward your goal.

From now on, think and talk about that goal all the time. Think and talk about how you can achieve that goal. Think and talk about all the different things that you can do to make that goal a reality. This exercise will stimulate your creativity, increase your energy and unlock your potential.
