It is useful to break your goals down into three categories: current, near future and far future. Once you have put your future goals into your subconscious mind, they are begun. It is not only action that is required. Keeping your goals in forefront of your mind is key. Thoughtfully craft your current goals. Know how you will measure your success and plan for it.
Think big! Think limitlessly. Think "out of box". People are often limited by their minds unwillingness to stretch. Remember what Napoleon Hill said: "...if you can conceive it, and believe it, you can achieve it!"
If you find yourself surrounded by people who are ‘thinking little’, it might be difficult to find support and acceptance for your big plans. You may have to include some new associates who want to play ‘big’, too! You have probably heard that, if you want to run with big dogs, you have to get off porch! Jump off that porch and get running!
Reflect on biggest view of your life--your master plan. Is it big enough for you? Does it cause you to stretch to get your arms around it? If not, think a little bigger and see where it takes you. If it does, be sure you have planned route that will get you there. Then, follow it. As you embark on each task today, ask yourself, "Am I on road to my vision by doing this?" If not, make a correction.
Go big or go home! That one little phrase keeps me on my toes.
