Do You Know Where You’re Going?

There’s an old Chinese saying that goes, “If you stay on the path you are on, you will surely end up where you are going.”

Clever folks those Chinese. It is true that even if you don’t have a clear plan or you don’t know where you are going, you will end up somewhere.  The trouble is it may not be the somewhere you wanted to go.

Without having a compelling vision for your business (i.e. one that really excites and motivates you), odds are you’re not going to end up where you want to.

Either you are a beginner or a seasoned veteran, make sure you have a well-defined idea of the kind of business style and lifestyle you want to achieve.

A great exercise is to actually take some time to sit down and visualize your ideal scenario. What do you want your life and your business to look like six months from now? A year from now? Five years? Go into as much detail as you can.

A way to do that is to write down in detail a description of an average day in your perfect imagined life. Begin with waking up. Then, go all the way through your day till going to sleep.

This becomes a written vision map of the future you intend to head into. Actually writing this out is crucial (not just thinking about it) because…

  1. It moves those thoughts out of the realm of “daydreaming” into the world of goals and planning.
  2. It automatically becomes a written contract with yourself, which usually sparks personal motivation to achieve it.
  3. It makes you define clearly what your goals are. Writing them down encourages you to state what you want in much greater detail.
  4. It frees your mind of perpetually thinking of and “remembering” your goals.

Give it a try. Indulge in some creative visualization! It’s time to start making your dreams a reality.

Excellent website you have here but I was wanting to know if you
knew of any community forums that cover the same topics discussed in this article?
I’d really like to be a part of online community where I can get responses from
other knowledgeable people that share the same interest.
If you have any recommendations, please let
me know. Kudos!

Hello would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re using?
I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a
lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider
at a reasonable price? Thanks, I appreciate it!

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure
of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.

Maybe you could space it out better?

I’m not sure why but this blog is loading incredibly slow for me.

Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end?
I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
