Discover your life vision - make it an uncompromising goal

Reflections from a thesimpledollar.com article (http://bit.ly/cRi20M).

If I had millions and millions of rands, what would I do with my time? (after I got the rest and relaxation out of my system, of course)
Why don't I do this now?
The need for money? Fear?

Solution - visualize this thing and find a way to it. Make it an uncompromising goal!

Think today like the (ideal) future you

Reflections from a mrselfdevelopment.com article (http://bit.ly/7mRt2g).

Live today in an imaginary world of your ideal future and you will start acting like the you in that world and consequently that world will start to materialize. All you have to do today is alter your perceptions and attitude to match that future you.  An ancient proverb says that "as a man thinketh in his heart, so he is."

So live like you're wealthy, live like you're successful, live like you're a giant in character, live like you're the best at your dream job... TODAY!

You have to be pregnant before you give birth

Reflections from a mrselfdevelopment.com article (http://bit.ly/aLZ6cF).

A woman can't want to give birth to a baby without being willing to be pregnant with it first. Likewise, it is for anything we want to materialize in our lives. We must be pregnant with it and then give birth to it.

Guess what the pregnancy part is? Meditation! (defined by: imagine, ponder, mutter, think).

Focus on the value you want to get with money instead of the money

Reflections from a sethgodin.typepad.com article (http://bit.ly/b7LqMt).

Money is a universally agreed upon symbol used to trade for value. Instead of stressing about getting more money, keep perspective on more value.  This may translate into money as a means, but value can come in other ways as well.

Instead of focusing only on money, focus on the value you want to get with that money and your mind will become aware of all the other ways to get that value.

Everybody could do it if it was easy

Reflections from a sethgodin.typepad.com article (http://bit.ly/cpxzVY).

"Just about everything worth doing is worth doing because it's important and because the odds are against you.  If they weren't, then anyone could do it, so don't bother."

Don't lose courage when doing something important.

"If nobody is following, you are not leading"

Reflections from a theresurgence.com article (http://bit.ly/ab399X).

A leader has followers.  "If nobody is following, you are not leading!".  Also, if people are following you, they are following you to some place, which is called the VISION. So if we say leader, inherent in that definition is a vision and followers to that vision.

These days we have many managers (do things right) but few leaders (do the right things). "Common today is to be over-managed but under-led."
