We all have personal goals and things that we set our sights on. Some of these goals could be purchasing your first home or traveling to an exotic island. Life comes with many distractions. In our youth, we are firm as to what to make of our lives. As we get older, our goals tend to change. Sometimes, the path we lay for ourselves is not the path we follow. This is because we get side tracked with different opportunities. The grass looks greener on the other side, so we gravitate to the other side.
I believe that we adults are not clear on what we want for ourselves. The reason why is because our actions are opposite of what we say. Many people would like to start a business. As soon as they find one that they like, they stick with it for a season. When challenges arise, they quit and try something else. Perhaps, you want to lose fifty pounds however, your diet says otherwise. We are good at talking but poor at doing. Have you ever walked into a car dealership to purchase a particular car and drove away with something different?
I am learning that if you don’t have a made up mind, someone else will make your mind up for you. Millions of people minds are made up for them. Yet, they think they’re in control. Control is a powerful word. If you don’t have it, someone else does. That’s why it’s important to know what you want and then go for it. In order to know what you want, you have to be focused. There is no time for being wishy-washy. Be determined and commit to what it is you want. Plan your work and work your plan.
In conclusion, know what you want, then go for it (ethically speaking). People and opportunities do not last forever. If possible, surround yourself with people who share a common goal as you do. If impossible, utilize books, videos and articles to assist you in getting what you want.
