Success Will Not Jump Up And Pick You

Home Stager with Effective Staging Inc.

....You have to pick success, you have to want success, and you have to work hard to become successful! You have to set realistic, achievable goals and design a road map to get from point A to Z and prepare for all the curves, twists and turns along the path. If you are serious about living in tune with your deepest dreams and desires you need to become actively focused and determined to make your dreams reality.

Here are 4 ways that you can give success a helping hand:

Dreams - turn your dream into a passion, a burning desire for without a dream, a vision a goal you could end up anywhere.

Destination - begin with the end in sight; know where you want to end up and then plan your route one step at a time; checking and readjusting your plan as circumstances dictate.

Control - you need to be in control of your actions, your focus and your choices - always keeping the end goal in sight. Being in control empowers you to live your life the way you envision.

Purpose - when you chose to live your life with purpose, you will take the actions necessary to fulfill your passion.

Success should be seen as the progressive realization of a goal, a vision or a deep burning desire. It demands that you become single minded and focused on the journey; also that you should enjoy the ride.

EXCELLENT post Joanne! Thanks

And don't forget.........Write Your Goals Down! They have a funny way of making you work them once you have committed them to paper!
