You Need To Vision Your Future

Do you want better health? Maybe a higher income? Do you want greater success in life? Do you wish to achieve more happiness? Well, you need to start visioning your future. I’ll give you 3 steps, to start boosting your life to a new dimension.

First step – Ask For What You Want. Most people are too afraid to ask for what they want, because they fear the disappointment of not getting it. Well, if you don’t ask for it- you’ll probably won’t get it. It’s as simple as that. If you have a dream, the first thing you need to do is to write it down. Take a clean sheet of paper and write down everything you wish to accomplish. For each wish you write, you need to set a deadline for achieving that wish. The deadline turns the wish into a goal and slowly turns it into reality. I have 2 boards in my home, where I write down my goals. On one board I wrote all my major goals for 2009 (I picked the 10 that were most important for me) and on the other board (which is on my bedroom) I pasted photos of all my desired goals for the next few years. I can say for sure that I am heading towards achieving my dreams and I owe much of it for my 2 boards. Some of my goals are financial, some are spiritual, some are related to fitness or hobbies and some are related to making this world a better place.

Second step – Go To Work. Work on your goals every day. Do something every day that will take you one step closer, towards achieving your dreams. I love the sentence that ‘the harder I work, the luckier I get’. It’s true…I believe in leisure and spending quality time with your partner or friends. But, I also believe that moving towards a worthy goal is something you need to work hard on, in order to achieve. In fact, achieving a challenging goal has 2 benefits. The first is great satisfaction, that will give you drive for achieving more worthy goals. The second is – the person you become in order to achieve it. You can’t stay the same and hope to achieve things, that are currently beyond your limit. You need to grow and develop in order to close that gap. In fact, the road you go through, makes you a better person and that is the greatest benefit. Jim Rohn said in one of his lectures that- ‘You should set a goal to make a million dollar, for what it will make of you to achieve it’.

Third step – You Need Faith. Faith is the driving force of this life. After doing your best, you need to have faith that things will work out. We can’t know what the future will bring and even though we try our best to predict every single detail, we hardly succeed. Faith and positive thinking will carry you to happiness and the fulfillment of your goals.

For conclusion- What are your dreams? Write them down….Feel free to post some of them at the comments. Good Luck!

When You Don’t Get What You Want

Have you ever had a strong desire to reach a certain goal? Was there a time that you really wanted something and you just couldn’t have it? It might be a car, a relationship, a house, a deal, a test score, a job, a career etc. The questions are, what to do when in spite of all our efforts, we don’t get what we want? How to face the frustration of not reaching our goals? And how to face failure when it comes our way?

Be kind to yourself– see things in the right perspective. As Zig Ziglar said “Failure is an event, never a person”. You still deserve love and respect for trying your best. The willingness to rise after every wrong attempt, is our greatest glory.

Keep trying– If you are really eager to succeed you should “go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm” (Sir Winston Churchill). I know from my own experience at work, that seven or eight out of ten new attempts to make a profit, end up as failures. In order to succeed, I work hard and I just keep trying, until getting it right.

See the positive aspect– “Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently” (Henry Ford). Take the time and think how you can improve your next attempt. Our failures force us to become better, whether we like it or not.

For conclusion, I can only wish you happiness! Leave your comments and share your opinion with me.

Some of My Favorite Quotes

A great quote contains a wealth of wisdom in a single line. Here are some of my favorite ones…

“Nearly every man who develops an idea works at it up to the point where it looks impossible, and then gets discouraged. That’s not the place to become discouraged.” Thomas Edison

“We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it- and stop there; lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. It will never sit down on a hot stove lid again- and that is well; but it will never sit down a cold one anymore.” Mark Twain

“There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.” Peter Druker

“Be the change that you wish to see most in your world.” Gandhi
