One of the major keys to success is learning to be honest and transparent with yourself. And one of the critical keys to being transparent with yourself is admitting that success in life requires work. We often tend to look at others who have achieved unusual levels of success and think that it was easy for them – but when we really learn the details of their life stories, we find out the tremendous prices they paid for what they’ve achieved in life.
I don’t say this to discourage you, but to encourage your heart by teaching you that success can indeed be yours – but you must first count the price, and then be willing to pay it. Here are some keys to help you begin to find your path and move toward your dreams in 2022:
- Decide what it is that you really want from life. If you don’t know what you want, getting it is mighty hard.
- Decide WHY you want it. What you want is the vehicle; why you want it is the gas in the tank.
- Put together a plan for achieving what you desire. Without a plan, your dream is nothing more than a wish. With a plan, your dream begins to take shape and manifest itself.
- Get granular. You must be able to answer the question, “What must I do today, right now, in order to reach my goal that may be several years in the future?”
Follow this process and you will almost certainly see more success and faster progress in your life.
