Getting there

Take care not to focus too much on plotting out a way to get there. Direct the bulk of your attention, time and energy to actually getting there.

It’s good to have a workable process. Remember, though, that the goal is to get results and not to merely perfect the process.

When the objective is clear and meaningful, and the passion is there, you will manage to work your way to the results you seek. Although many of the steps you take will be from your plan, some of the most important steps will come from your desire to move forward.

You cannot possibly know everything that will happen along the way. Yet you can always know that with a strong enough desire, you will find a way no matter what.

Don’t let your planning take away from your doing. Enjoy the confidence of knowing that even if your plans don’t work out, you can still reach the goal.

Keep your eye on the prize, your heart in the effort, and your passion burning steadily. There is a way to get it done, and you will find it and make it happen.
