Goals.  “Goals are dreams with a deadline.”   Do you know what you want, when you want it, what you are willing to do to get it? Have you studied what others who have succeeded did, and committed to paying the same price?    Is the realization of your long-term core goals worth investing 10,000 hours?  Yes?   Then See it, Feel it, Touch it, Taste it, Hear it.   Make it real.  Invest yourself.   Say “if it’s to be, it’s up to me.”   What do you want in 10 years?  5 years?   3 years?  1 year?   Six months?   3 months?  1 month?  1 week?  Tomorrow?      What do you need to do today?  Do the actions, emotions, beliefs and values all line up along this entire ‘time line”?    If they do, you have the absolute best chance of reaching your goals.   No one can promise you external success...but if you START with gratitude, you’ve got the world mastered.
