Maybe not knowing what you want is holding you back from being where you want to be. How can you possibility get somewhere without knowing where that somewhere is? It's like getting in your car to go on a trip without first deciding where you are going to go AND without a map!
Even if you may not know exactly how to get there, having a definite destination in mind will at the very least give you a point on the map to shoot for. I know some of you out there are saying, but I really don't know what I want to be when I grow up. I have said that for most of my adult life! Through 3 different career paths! But I have an ultimate goal - a Definite Purpose, as Napoleon Hill would say.
You have to set an ultimate goal, even if it is in your head. Yes, I know that everyone will tell you that it must be written down and that you have to come up with short range goals and long range goals to get you to that ultimate goal. This is where I will mix it up a bit, because in my experience, holding that goal in your mind makes that thought, that desire, become an actuality. Yes, there it is - Thoughts become things!
For every goal that you set, whether written down or just held in your mind at all times, it is a law of the Universe that it must become a physical "thing". Because anything that you can think about and strive to with all of your passion, emotion and effort has not choice but to become a reality.
And if you tell me now that only bad things happen to you then my response will be then you must only be thinking of the negative things that could happen if you try to do a certain thing. No one ever accomplished a great thing by thinking that they would fail. It is said that Edison "tried" to create the light bulb many, many times over before it became a reality. He never gave up! He always kept the positive thought in his mind that he could create it and that he would make it happen. Milton Hershey failed miserably many times before the now famous Hershey Bar! What makes you any different than them. Or even the not so great people, who have persevered in their thoughts to get where they are today. i see them everyday in my classroom! People who may have lost jobs, or become disillusioned by the negativity in the world to rise above it by their thoughts that they could!
So create your Definite Purpose now! Create goals and then see them in your mind, feel what it will be like to achieve your Definite Purpose. Hear what people are saying as they congratulate you on your achievement! See the "things" you own since your Definite Purpose has been realized! Taste it, smell it, use all of your senses and emotions as you visualize what life is now like since you reached your Definite Purpose!
