Stay away from people with no vision

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” -- Ralph Waldo Emerson When you’re just starting out, some people may tell you that your dreams are far-fetched. Instead of listening to people who can’t see your vision or don’t believe in you, find people with a vision of their own. By spending time with visionary people, you can learn how to become all you dream to be. ✤          Stay away from people with no vision. ✤          Share your vision with those who have their own. ✤          Reach for your goals despite what others say. Self-Reflection Questions: I.       Do I have a clear vision of my future? II.      Do I dwell on criticisms? III.    Am I surrounding myself with like-minded, positive people?

Set Attainable Goals

“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Many people are so focused on achieving their goals that they don’t enjoy the process or the journey along the way. Yes, it’s true that we set goals with the hope that we will achieve them, however there’s more to life than merely meeting a goal. We must become better people as we strive to meet and exceed the goals we’ve set for ourselves. ✤ Set attainable goals. ✤ Work hard to achieve those goals. ✤ Take the time to learn and grow along the path to your success. Self-Reflection Questions: I. Am I aware of my growth as I work toward my goals? II. Have I set attainable, realistic goals? III. Am I determined to follow through at any   cost?

Never Wait On Success

“Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking.” – William Butler Yeats You can’t always wait for success to come to you. You have to be proactive to ensure that you will attain the success you desire. Take the initiative to do more than what is expected of you each day. Be excellent in your work so you will be noticed. Then, when the opportunity presents itself, take the steps you need to make the most of it. ✤          Be proactive. ✤          Always take the initiative. ✤          Do what you can to make opportunities happen. Self-Reflection Questions: I.       Am I aware of the opportunities around me? II.      What will I do to create new opportunities? III.    What additional tasks will I take on so I can excel in my life?
