Of course there are really no secrets to success. These are well known principles that, if understood and acted upon, will lead you forward on the journey of success. And success is a journey, not a place. To be truly successful you must continually move forward.
Here is the first of seven points to consider:
1. Clarity: Perhaps Zig Ziglar said it best, “Be clear on who you are and what you want.” Ask yourself these basic questions:
What do you believe in and stand for?
What is most important in your life?
What would you pay, fight, suffer, and die, for?
What do you really care about?
What do you really want to do with your life?
What would you dare to dream if you knew you could not fail?
The answer to these questions will help you be clear in your values, vision, mission, purpose, and goals. Then you need to:
Decide exactly what you want in life.
Specify what it really means to you.
Identify the true value attached to it.
Determine the path to get there from here.
Make your own detailed plan of action.
Accept what you may have to give up to get there.
Reaffirm your sincerity and the goal before you.
The person you see is the person you will be. Visualize your success as you move toward it. Whatever your goal imagine it already within your grasp. See yourself truly being that very person and you will find yourself moving forward toward your goal, your vision, your dream. It is the clarity of your vision that makes it happen.
