Are you 100% satisfied with the life you’ve got? Are you living life to your full potential? How do you define success? Do you consider yourself successful? You can only know if you have arrived at your destination if you know clearly what that destination is.
Success means different things to different people. For some, owning their home is a sign of success while for others, achieving a certain income makes them successful. The unfortunate thing is that many people go through life borrowing someone else’s definition of success hence they do not know for sure whether they are successful or not.
Success begins with setting clear goals. I am at point A. Success to me means reaching point B. Once you know exactly what you want to achieve, then you come up with a road map about how you will move from point A to point B. You then invest in yourself to become the person who is able to achieve what you are aiming for.
For example, you want to become a public speaker. You then invest in your self confidence, knowledge and other skills that are in line with public speaking. You put in hours every day into activities that are consistent with your goals.
Unsuccessful people are those that have no clear goals in life. They follow the flow of things. They have no specific purpose in life. Life happens to them and they feel like victims.
All accomplishment begins with a clear picture of what is to be achieved. To live a purposeful life, you need to first decide what you want to achieve in life.
What is important to you? Maybe you want to make a difference in the lives of widows or orphans. Come up with a clear main purpose for your life then break it down into small targets.
“To succeed, you need to find something to hold on to, something to motivate you, something to inspire you.” – Tony Dorsett
We are in the last few weeks of the year 2016. This is the perfect time to evaluate your achievements so far and examine whether you are working towards your goals or not. Do you have clarity about what you want to achieve in life?
Make 2017 your best year ever by setting clear goals and coming up with a road map how you are going to get there. Identify the skills you will need to enable you achieve your goals and how you are going to attain those skills.
Many people sabotage themselves by expecting to achieve big goals within an unrealistic period of time. You might not achieve much in a year or two, but with clearly defined goals, your life can be transformed tremendously in a decade.
Whether you plan where you would like to be in 10 years or not, the time will pass anyhow. So if you are not 100% satisfied with the life you’ve got, it’s time to bring about change in your life through clarity.
“All successful people, men and women are big dreamers.
