Knowing…is "MOST" of the battle!

Most personal conquests (work, relationships, sports, etc...) are rooted in very tangible success-failure outcomes - a new car, a bigger house, a silver medal (the list goes on...).

Why is that?

  • Is it because we make success tangible so that we can have a physical reward...
  • Is it because our ability to dream of bigger success is limited by our vantage point and personal inadequacies...
  • Is it because when we are able to internalize what we want we have the motivation to see our way to bigger success...

There is always more than one reason for causality on any level. Clearly at times, no one reason can explain everything. BUT...knowing what you want from any interaction in life can prove to be the tipping point for success.

Ask yourself:

  • Why am I doing this activity - what's the real reason?
  • What activities would I be involved in if I had the necessary courage?

Finding out what you want can be "a mixed bag". Be prepared to come to grips with your own banality. No self-help book can HELP you KNOW yourself unless you are prepared to be honest...

Finally, remember that nothing is out of reach...NOTHING!
