There was once a great builder who had a great task to do. He gathered the needed materials, gathered his tools, but forgot his plans to guide him towards his goal. How many times do we go from day to day on just a whim? Does each day seem like a boring routine of going around in circles? An unclear plan can make life frustrating and chaotic.
A clear plan can be a sure road for success. Myles Monroe said that success is predictable and attainable for everyone if the laws that make success possible are applied. When applying a plan we should know some basic things.
1. Know purpose – Our reason for doing what we do is critical to achieving long term success. If our reasons are centered around our comforts, the money, the fun, and the like our desires to be around them we might not reach the success we are looking for.
Don’t go through the day, week, or year with no plan in place to get to your goal. When your purpose is clear it gives you a reason to go to that class that you don’t like and still learn something. You can go to the job to fulfill your purpose instead of punching a clock and counting the hours. Your daily purpose, wherever you are, should be a part of your life plan to achieve your life goal.
2. Know place – Where do we thrive and produce the most? Where do we have the most impact and can have the most affect with our skills or talents?.
If in the class room look for the area that you enjoy and can learn the most. Try to direct the teacher in helping you reach your life goals by connecting with them and finding where you fit in the class's objectives. On the job find that area that you enjoy and can do well. Talk to the boss about letting you do more in that area where you are most productive. Know your niche, what you do well and strive to succeed at it daily.
3. Know passion – What drives us daily to want to accomplish? When we are passionate about something we don’t have to think about it, it’s always on our minds. It doesn’t necessary have to pay us money, because we love to do it regardless of the compensation. (If you do it well, it will draw payers eventually.)
If your passion is in full effect you will work on it when everyone else is asleep or taking a break. Direct your inner drive (passion) to push you to accomplish your life plan and your life goal for success.
