2010 New Year Resolution: get thinking about EXACTLY what you want to achieve, and once you have a clear picture in your mind, think about it constantly and create plans to make it happen. Setting goals is step #1, but then you’ve got to have a plan and TAKE ACTION, they will not happen unless you work for it.
Successful athletes, business people, parents, etc, aren’t always the smartest, most genetically gifted, or have the best environment, successful people are focused on what they want and they’ll do whatever it takes to make it happen without excuses or getting sidetracked.
To drive from Edinburgh to London, all you need to see is the next 100 feet… You don’t have to see your destination at the start. Just keep driving, 100 feet at a time, in the right direction, and you’ll get there.
You might not always know each step to achieve your goal, but I’m sure you can get started on something NOW and you’ll figure the rest out once you get momentum. If takes 2 weeks, 2 months or even a year just have your GOAL set firmly in your mind continue with YOUR JOURNEY towards achieving it. Constantly TAKE ACTION on a daily basis.
