I still encounter it around me too often, and especially now during the corona epidemic, people of all ages, who don't know what they want out of life. I understand that it is difficult to find this out. The daily pressures of our society, friends, and family shape our views of what we want out of life. I will discuss this in a later blog, but for now, I want to emphasize how important it is to have a goal. It doesn't matter what your goal consists of, but having a goal gives direction and meaning to your life.
Throughout the Mind-Building blogs, I want to share with you all the knowledge and experience I've gained in my life regarding what I call mind-stuff. I have read countless books and listened to a wide variety of successful people to understand the nature of our minds, explaining how we can use the power of our minds to shape our reality the way we desire.
I strive to enrich your life by understanding who you are so that together we can transform in changing our environment to a blissful and healthy state. Poverty is the disease of the poor mind. There are enough resources for all of us. But we must learn how to share and multiply them together. Becoming rich as a whole is the goal of our civilization. By prospering together, we can reach the pinnacle of human potential and create a better world for us all.
I want to give you something upfront. I recently read a definition of success that has helped me in my attitude toward success. This insight has helped me understand success better. I like to ask you to think about this in advance because I'll go into more detail about this in a later blog. Throughout the blog series, I will be giving you several assignments that could help you achieve your goal.
"The definition of success is working every day towards the goal you set."
Read that again and let this sink in.
Success lies not in achieving the goal, but in working every day toward the goal. By doing that, you are already successful. If I study for a test every day, and I don't pass the test, does that mean I'm not successful? I studied every day for 20 days, as I promised myself. Studying for 20 days and working toward a goal will bring you much more in life than passing a test. Think about it. 20 days of constant studying has increased your perseverance, willpower, and knowledge. Realize that these 3 traits characterize a successful person and that if you continue to develop these three traits, then the question is not whether you are successful, but how successful you want to be.
I outline a small example to show what small goals can already accomplish. They are the basis for achieving bigger and bigger goals and bigger goals often involve more complexity, which means you also need to develop new knowledge and skills.
Keep following along and let me know what you think about this in the comments.
