I just came across this excellent section in Stuart Goldsmith ‘s book, The 7 Secrets of The Millionaires
I thought I share it with you…
“Now the correct order (the key to success if you like) is as follows:
2 Break your dreams down into bite sized chunks.
3 Set weekly, monthly, yearly goals which move you inexorably
closer to your dreams.
I’m talking here about big life-planning goals. There is a very real place for smaller goals of the ‘trim the hedge, paint the workshop, read up on Roman history’ variety, but these goals are not the topic of this book. We’re talking here about eh secrets of the millionaires – The entrepreneurs who have made their fortune.
As Robert L. Schwartz so aptly stated, ‘The entrepreneur is essentially a visualizer and actualizer… He can visualize it and when he visualizes it, he sees exactly how to make it happen.’
Your big dreams and projects are just too complicated for you to keep in your mind and retain as a coherent whole. If you do not break your dream down into achievablew steps, it will remain exactly that – a dream – a fantasy which you keep repeating but never take any action to make it happen”
This is so true. If you have been putting your dream project on hold for ages, maybe this is the inspiration you need to get serious about putting it into action, starting TODAY?
Of course, this is just one tiny excerpt from a huge amount of practical wisdom from a man who knows what he is talking about – because he has done it (starting from scratch). You can get the complete book, and much more, here….
The real key to success is Clarity. Without that, and with just a hazy vision of what you really want from life, you will never really achieve anything. The universe can only give you what you want if you are CLEAR about it, and affirm that vision regularly.
