Definite purpose is the key to success
Good day. Today I want to dive into one of the simplest and most under utilized tools to success. In Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill states that the first step to achieving your goals is to set a specific, clear and concise goal. What does that mean? In Laws of Success in 16 lessons, Napoleon Hill defines that as a DEFINITE CHIEF AIM. One of the most important actions one can take towards achieving success is to have a specific aim in life as to what he wants to do. Notice I used the word “WANTS” to do. This follows flawlessly with the Law of Attraction, because in using the Law of Attraction you visualize SPECIFICALLY what you want. When you have a focused and specific idea of what you want your life to be like, regardless of what that life looks like at this point, you set in motion your subconscious to start searching and be open to opportunities that will bring you closer and closer to that which you want.
The sad thing in life is that most people have given up on what they want. They use words like ‘security’, ‘comfortable’, and ‘necessity’ to justify not dreaming. Most people, just like with the Law of Attraction, are going about achieving their definite chief aim by default based on what has happened to them up to this point. They may hate their job, or position in life, or the relationship they are in, but they have NO IDEA OF WHAT IT IS THAT THEY WOULD LIKE. Napoleon Hill points out that if you look into a crowd the person who walks with a focus and a definite destination flows easily through the crowd and it seems like the crowd just parts way. Where as people who are hesitating and have no idea of where they are going bump and bounce and move to the right and to the left while trying to maneuver the same path. Try it for yourself the next time you are in a crowd. Pick a point straight ahead and focus on getting to that point and just start walking with a purpose and see how the crowd moves away and the path opens.
The same is true with your life and anything you want in life. Once you are clear on what you want, you get that which you want. How do you get clear? Spend time and ask yourself what is it that you enjoy doing? What type of a person are you attracted to? Where do you want to live? How much money do you want to have come into your life on monthly bases? What type of a car do you want to drive? What kind of a home do you want to live it?
It helps to write these down, and look for picture where applicable to make a vision board, or if you are technically savvy make a digital vision board. What ever creative method you use, make this fun and focus on it at least twice daily and feel the feeling of having, or living it NOW. If you have read my e-book Road Map to Life you have learned the 6 steps involved in setting and achieving any goal. Use those steps daily. Soon you will have the job, the car, the relationship, and THE LIFE THAT YOU WANT. Don’t worry about the how. The how will show itself to you as you take small action steps that occur to you once you get clear on what you want. It happens all the time, every time. It happens whether you believe it or not. If you don’t believe it will work it will give you what you want and that is the NOT WORKING. That is the Law of Attraction at work.Best wishes for your success.
