Work With The End In Mind
I see many very successful business people who are unsuccessful in life goals. The reason I am writing this article is because of several mentors I had when starting out and all said work with the end in mind. This bit of advice I received was a classic case of selective hearing and I dismissed this for many years because all I wanted to hear was the parts on how to make money, how to become successful and how can I become an entrepreneur.
Luckily for myself I have networked a lot and now fully understand this meaning now. I have seen some multi millionaire friends become depressed because there whole life they just thought once they had an 8 figure bank balance everything would be happy. I have close friends divorced because all the attention went into his business and he neglected his wife and kids. I have seen lads become overweight and very unhealthy because all their attention and time was taken by building the bank balance. But the bank balance does not make you happy – yes it can allow you to buy nice things and certainly helps to a better lifestyle but creating a balanced life is certainly the way forward.
What does it mean to begin with end in mind?
The meaning of begin with the end in mind is to start with a clear understanding of your end destination. It means to know where you’re going so that you better understand where you are now. It allows you to take the steps you need to take so that you are always going in the right direction. Begin with the End in Mind means to begin each day, task, or project with a clear vision of your desired direction and destination. You need to continue being proactive in your mind to make things happen and best way to do this is to develop a Personal Mission Statement.
Map Out Your Own Life
Only you can map out your perfect life. You will get a lot of misfortune along the way but don’t allow this to stop your vision. We all are born, eat, sleep, breathe and die so deal with it. If family members or loved ones have a shorter lifespan than you would of liked then so have millions of others also. It is inevitably going to happen to us all so just make sure you are living your perfect life today.
Have a life of purpose driven living in every area of life, not just financial abundance but an abundant life. I believe that a life lived by sacrifice is a life not worth living. You get to be the artist of your life by intentionally creating it every single day. We are all on a constant journey of expansion, evolving, upgrading, learning every single day.
Break Through From the Inside
The only person holding you back from mapping out your own life is yourself. There’s an old saying that goes like this – “If an egg is broken by an outside force, life ends. If broken by an inside force, life begins. Great things always begin from the inside.” This is a classic phrase which goes well with my take action article in saying you need to start taking serious action today.
It all starts with “listening to that inner voice” and not giving up on what you want out of life. Do you feel you are on the verge of breaking through, but just need that extra strength. Will let me tell you now that extra strength is to belief in yourself and taking massive action. This is the extra strength you need to break through from the inside.
Life is For Living
I am a huge advocate that there is no point in being the richest man in the graveyard.
