I really believe it is important to know where you're going in life. If you have an idea of what you'd like to do with your life then you can create a plan of action to make it happen.
I have an affirmation that I say daily that states my goal. It says what I will receive, when I will receive it and what I will do in turn in order for it to happen. I have learned it's important to say this out loud daily and express it with feeling. May sound funny but it is a way for you to control your subconscious mind and make it work in accord with your plan. Like riding a horse, you are in control of the horse even though you aren't the one walking.
During my personal development the other day I was told to stop reading and write down a list of things I wanted to achieve in my life. At first I thought "I don't need to do this, I already know." Then I got to thinking about it and I thought this man is a millionaire surely he knows what the heck he's talking about.
He had stated that his list consisted of 101 things. At first I thought I don't have that many goals, but I started writing #1 and then #2 before I knew it I was to #39!! It's amazing what thoughts come out of your mind when you start putting your mind to work.
For now I am making my list. After that is complete I will go to each goal and create a plan of action and date that it will happen.
Something I also read recently is if you are not excited each morning when you wake up then you don't have enough goals. You don't have much to look forward to. Wow, what a thought..
So please take the time to be a dreamer and be sure to remember that you are the one in control of yourself. If you want freedom for your life then make it happen!
