"I find the great thing in this world is, not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Who doesnt like to feel like they know where they are going in life? It is a natural desire to feel comfortable with the direction ones life is heading at any given time. After all, not knowing where you are going leads to feelings of instability, hesitancy and doubt and theyre not good feelings to be sure.
Winners are renown for blazing their own trail, maintaining control of where they are going in life. They not only know which direction they are heading, they know how they are going to get there and even more remarkably, when they will arrive as well. Every winner who has ever walked the face of this earth carried with them a personalized road map for success.
"If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone elses plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much."
You too must develop your own personalized success map. Hey relax, dont get uptight. Putting together your own game plan is not really all that hard. The initial step in putting together your road map requires that you first determine exactly where you are today, right this very minute.
As is the case when using any map, you must first know where you are right now in order for the map to have any real value. Then, once you have determined where you are right now, you can begin working on where you want to go, how youre going to get there and when you will arrive.
"The wise man bridges the gap by laying out the path by means of which he can get from where he is to where he wants to go."
John Pierpont Morgan
In order to construct your map to your exacting specifications, you might want to ask yourself the following questions. Where do you want your life to take you? What do you want to accomplish here on earth? Make sure the answers are YOUR answers. Remember, this is your road map to success and it can take you anywhere you desire.
When you begin looking at where you want to go, you've got to make absolutely certain the where you choose is your choice alone and not someone else's decision being made for you.
Once you have clearly established where you want to go, it is time to decide how youre going to get there. Again, please make sure you follow your own heart, holding absolutely nothing back. You should turn your brain power loose and let your creative juices flow. The "how youre going to get there" is the best part of living.
"Throughout the centuries there were men who took first steps, down new roads, armed with nothing but their own vision."
Again, please make absolutely certain the "how" you chase is your own personal choice, not somebody elses. The how should allow you to follow your dreams. The how should permit you to pursue your passions. A worthwhile "how" can provide you a lifetime of happiness and fulfillment. Never forget, even for a moment, that you wouldn't be able to conceive a notion or idea if you were not capable of achieving it.
The final step in completing your personalized road map for success is to determine when you are going to arrive. This is the easiest stage in the process. After all, doesnt it make sense that you should set your sights on getting there as soon as possible? You bet it does! As is the case with all winners, you should develop a definitive sense of urgency.
"Four steps to achievement: Plan purposefully. Prepare prayerfully. Proceed positively. Pursue persistently."
William A. Ward
Come on, why should you ever sit around and wait to live life on your terms? Why should you wait to live your life the way you have always dreamed it should be? You shouldn't and now fully armed with your personalized game plan, you dont have to wait any longer.
With your road map for success in hand, you can scale the highest mountain top. With your road map for success showing you the way, you can soar high above the clouds. With your road map for success paving the path, you can now go any place you have ever wanted to go. And best of all, you CAN get there from here.
The Bottom Line: Today is your day to make your future come to life in your life right now.
