Yes. You read it right. Despite the fact that there are tons of books collecting success quotes from successful people, success quotes are nothing more than inspiring things that you will forget right after you read them.
Success is a reward of actions. Some says massive actions. However, unless you are motivated, you can not make massive actions. But how you can get motivated? Success quotes will not help you. You need tools to drive you toward your success.
If it is not something like success quotes, then what will drive and motivate you to act massively and reap the rewards?
It’s been said and written many times by successful people. You need a direction. A combination of vision and goals to get you motivated and act massively toward your success.
You may hear about research conducted decades ago. A group of people was asked to write their goals on a piece of paper. 25 years later, those people were reviewed. It’s only 3% of them who became successful people. All of these people followed the instruction to write down their goals, while 97% who failed, did not follow the instruction. They simply ignored it.
Goal setting is a simple thing to do. Ironically, 97% of population do not do that thing and accept their ‘destiny’ as unsuccessful people. Why could this happen?
People have a tendency to be complicated. When it comes to a decision making, they will count on the most sophisticated technology proven tools. Meanwhile, to be successful, you even do not have to make a complex decision. You just need a desire to be successful. There is only one condition. You write down your desire, your passion, and your dreams and put it in a place you can see it every single moment.
You must be aware though that there are positive desire and negative desire. Positive desire is something you want to achieve in the future. Negative desire is something you want to avoid in the future.
You need to have both positive desire and negative desire to be a successful person. Do not forget to put pictures on your dreams and goals list. A new car, a new house, a demanding boss, traffic jams to and from your current office, etc.
Remember that you are not day dreaming. Put a date to each of your goals list. Goals are just dreams with deadline.
