Definiteness of Purpose
Success Puzzle Piece # 1: Definiteness of Purpose
Having a definite major purpose is the starting point of all achievement. To be successful in any endeavor you must have a definite major purpose, goals, and an action plan. Try envisioning success for yourself in the following critical areas, and any other areas that are important in your life:
• Personal growth
• Home and family life
• Spiritual enlightenment
• Social responsibilities
In your electronic journal, under each of these headings, group your dreams and then turn the dreams into goal statements that you write in your journal. Remember to call your definite purpose in life and your goals into your consciousness as often as possible. Eat with them, sleep with them, and take them with you wherever you go.
