I Dont Care Where you come From

I dont care where you come from, what your background is, your past does not dictate your future. You have probably heard that before but its not just a saying, it’s a fact. We have to own where we’ve come from, the decisions we’ve made, and the actions either taken or not taken to land us where we are now.

While we do have to own up to the truth that where we are in life right now in our careers, finances, or relationships, we are here because of the decisions and actions we have made or taken to date. There is no way to change that fact. You must own this truth. The ability to control your future lies in this understanding.

Once you own the fact that you and you alone are responsible for where you are you can start the process of getting to where you want to go, to becoming who and what you want to be. Believing and understanding that the choices we make and the action we take sets us on a course to achieve our goals.

Step One

The first step to making the change or improvement is to understand exactly what you want, what you want to become, what you value most. Whether it be career advancement, starting or improving a business, your health and fitness, or relational goals, you must choose what is most important to you. You must set the target, you must set the gaols. Without goals you are wandering blindly like most.

Step Two

Once you know what the targets are, now you must make the plan to hit the mark. For each of your goals plot out a course of action with milestones, 6 months out, 1 year, 3 years, and 5 years out. You must set the long term big picture of your future 3 to 5 years out. The goals and action plan must be written out on paper, I prefer paper over an electronic device. Call me old school but I think there’s more of a connection to the goal made when you think it and write it out. We have to review these goals everday, out of site out of mind right. Read your goals twice a day, first thing in the morning and last thing at night works best.

Step Three

Action, action is the key to any achievment. This is where most fail. Many people dream but without consistent action even when its tough, even when you have setbacks, even when it feels better to sit back and relax, action brings dreams to reality. The ability to keep pushing through setbacks and struggle doing what is required to achieve the goal is what separates winners and loser, successful and unseccessful, average and greatness.

You want to be a leader at your job or industry, make more income, or have great relationships? Own where you are and how you got there, then make new and better decisions. Set the goals and write them down. Now take the consistent action needed, whatever it is that is required for how ever long its required. Success and happiness is often diguised as hard work, do the work.
