Today I’ll discuss the importance of vision and keeping your goals very clearly defined.
As cliche as it sounds, your only limitations are the ones you place on yourself. Everyone around you is going to have their own opinions and judgments. All the time. But are you going to let others dictate the direction of your life? I surely will not. Therefore, the only real limits you have in your life on where you can take yourself are placed there by your own mind. Remove those limitations. “I could never achieve that”; “they got lucky”; “that’s beyond my limitations”. It’s all bulls**t. Excuse the language. But it is. Every person that has achieved something in life simply figured out the steps necessary to get there, and took them.
Discipline is a huge factor in the big picture. I’ll reference Darren Hardy’s The Compound Effect . Your success will not some from one single monumental action. It comes from the accumulation of all the small, seemingly-insignificant actions on a daily basis.
Back to vision: you need to clearly visualize what it is you want to achieve. Otherwise, you won’t know if your actions correspond to those goals. Create a vision board. Make each and every goal of yours as clearly defined as possible. Describe sights, smells, feelings, and emotions. Only then will you begin to subconsciously and consciously align your actions with those goals you are to achieve. You do this, and I guarantee, your goals will manifest themselves into your reality. The universe around us is full of energy and the universe itself is very aware. You put what you want into the universe, and circumstance will shape around your desires. Sounds far-fetched, but ask any ultra-successful man or woman. They’ll all give you a similar answer that all point back to very clearly defining what it is you want to achieve.
Envision it, clearly define it, and keep it in front of you every day.
