It is important to have an end in mind. And it will help tremendously to be as clear as possible to know what you want to achieve.
Being laser focus will enable the inner forces in you to search and work towards achieving whatever you have set in your mind. People often just say that they want more money or they want to be successful but those are pretty vague. On one hand, it gives a sense that the goal is too big and most often than not, people usually decide that it was just a dream and thus not pursue it.
On the other end, when a goal is not defined clearly, it tends to lead to never feeling like you have arrived even if you were to look back and see where you have come from and where you are now, it could be that you have achieved the success that you had imagined.
Whether you are starting out or already on your path, it is never to late to revisit what your true objective is and if it does not exist, it would be in your best interest to take a while and set the record straight.
