Make it big

To have what you want, to be the person you want to be, to do what you want with your life, make it important to you.

If all the daily details of life are preventing you from reaching your goal, then your goal is not big enough. To reach your goal, make it important. Make it big.

Visualize it in your mind, not in some little corner that gets attention once or twice a week, but front and center. Mentally put your goal in the way, blocking everything else.

Whatever you must look around, in order to see something else, will happen. Whatever you cannot avoid thinking of, will get accomplished. Instead of letting life get in the way of your goal, put your goal right smack in the way of your life. Do you really want it? That’s the way to have it. Make it big in your mind, and you’ll get there.
