Are you in control of your life, or does it feel like life is tossing you around like a boat in a storm?
Only one person in a hundred may look ahead, picture in their mind what they want, and set a plan to work toward their goals. The other ninety-nine may think about what they aspire to, but that vision will quickly fade, as they consider all the reasons why they can’t make their dreams a reality. So they settle for what life throws their way. That’s why life for the ninety-nine feels out of control and chaotic.
In order to go from the ninety-nine to the one, you must answer three important questions:
- What do you really, really want out of life?
- What is your plan to get there?
- What is your next step?
All three of these are critical steps to get off the out-of-control merry-go-round and take control of your destiny.
Some people will take the first step and stop. Some will even go to step two. But very few get to step three. The people in the “one percent” group take step three and continue on until their goals are achieved.
Ninety-nine people will read this and believe they knew all of this already. Yet they still won’t do anything about it. One will take action.
Life throws challenges in everyone’s paths. The ones who are not easily discouraged and remain resilient because they believe in their dreams are the people who end up as the one in a hundred.
Which are you?
