Having an outcome is the starting point to achievement.
An outcome in this context, is simply what you might like life to be like.
What will drive you and keep you focused when you are confronted with obstacles.
When you are not committed to something, it tends to get pushed to the back of our minds all kinds of other stuff finds a way of making you stray from your your desires and aspirations.
Because you are only human and life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.
There are elements of randomness that get in the way of acquiring outcomes, making life often…unpredictable.
Committing to an outcome and seeing it through, not only causes success it also CREATES SELF TRUST and a feeling of well being and achievement.
Flat out…it feels darn good to determine an outcome or set a goal…and then go get it.
Being motivated and moving forward…persisting.. even when it almost seems that the world is conspiring against you is what will make you great.
Fate Has Nothing To Do With It!
As you read biographies of the people you admire, you will notice a pattern emerge.
People who achieve leave nothing to fate.
They don’t believe in fate.
They make a decision to achieve something and then they go get it!
They plow through everything that stands in their way!
They set out with an outcome and then they DO it!
They do it without question or curiosity about “if” or “what if.”
People who achieve have long abandoned the mindset that (long term) failure is not an option.
Now that said, short term failure, is experienced far more often by successful people than anyone else.
Successful people control all the variables they can. They get help with factors they aren’t expert at and enlist the aid of anyone and everyone it takes to make dreams come true.
***For me, success isn’t measured in money. Success is measured in achievement compared to my potential***
Think about that for a minute…
Someone who has a severe physical or mental handicap might very easily have less potential than someone without the handicap. (And I do say “Might” because I’ve seen some pretty impressive handicaps…and sometimes people blow through them.)
Chances are that you aren’t one of those people.
Set out to do something and then do it.
That IS success.
This is the first and last thing which you need to consider when undertaking any task.
Success flat out feels good…
…”it” doesn’t have to be some lofty achievement…
Little successes feel pretty incredible too!
Success is evidence that you are in charge of your life.
That does just about everything good for you physically, emotionally, mentally….that you could hope for.
