I know. Today’s title might sound contradictory to what have been written thus far. All that talk about envisioning and believing that you can do whatever you set your mind to is not really coming across with this one. Now, let me clear things a little. Yes, we have our dreams and aspirations. However, as in every journey, there has to be a beginning. A point where it all began. Likewise, in your own success journey, you need to know where you are starting from. What are your current assets and liabilities? What are your skills? What have you got, now?
Reading tons of excellent resources is great. However, when you are putting it all into practise, you would be wise to know where you are coming from. Everyone’s journey is different. You might have a few similarities but that’s about it. So, when you are beginning your journey, be fully aware of your present situation at that time and personalise your path with all the wonderful materials you have gathered in your research. How great it would be to literally just apply the strategies you have found into your lives and achieve all the successes that have been spoken of? If only it were that simple. We like to think that the world is fair or that it should be. But that is life. Do not dwell so much on what and where you came from but focus on what you are going to do with the cards that have been dealt to you.
