Sharpen Your Focus

When we set goals, we usually pursue them vigorously in the beginning. Then slowly we begin to flounder and get off track for one reason or another. It is important to remind yourself daily of why it is important to reach your particular goals. If you don't, you have a much slimmer chance of accomplishing them. One of the reasons I am able to tackle the goals that I set is that I have a small little field note book that has all of my goals written down in it. I review this little note book several times throughout my day so that my goals are fresh on my mind. This helps me to focus and helps me subconsciously pay attention to what will bring me closer to the achievements I desire.

Creativity is Power

To create is one of the most powerful privileges of being human. Creating things, ideas, concepts, products, so on and so forth creates jobs, positions, titles, incomes, and so many other things we hold dear. There can be no accounting department without creativity springing forth first to give purpose to its existence. There can be no cause to rally behind without creativity exposing itself and giving others a reason to be passionate. Any organization or individual that loses their creative edge eventually withers and becomes obsolete. Even if you do not deem yourself the creative type, we all have a natural inclination to create and need to give room to that highly important facet of our essence.

One Common Characteristic of Great People

A lot of the biographies that I've read about successful people usually share one common characteristic. At one point in time, these people had to overcome the valley of rejection. It was in these times that they fortified themselves and found something deep inside that caused them to keep pushing even when others didn't believe in them. It's hard to overcome rejection, of any form. But I'm starting to see that it is a prerequisite for almost everyone who wants to be great in life (and thereafter). You have to have a strong flame in order to leave a lasting impact, one that will not be put out by the harsh winds of life, indifference of those around you, and the flat out opposition you will face. One has to remain positive in the vast ocean of negativity and mediocrity that so many people accept. And this is no easy task, but then again, if it was easy...
