Make yourself indispensable, and you will move up. Act as though you are indispensable, and you will move out.

If you told your doctor only that you didn’t feel well, and provided no more information than that, it wouldn’t be nearly enough. Your doctor would need to ask you to be much more specific before even beginning to diagnose the problem.

If you went to the airline ticket counter and asked to go someplace nice, the agent would not be able to sell you a ticket. You would first need to provide a specific destination.

In the same way, if you only have a vague idea of what you intend to achieve, not very much is going to happen. Yet once you become clear and specific, that’s when the magic begins.

When you clearly define what you intend to do, where you intend to go, or who you intend to become, it is amazing how reality begins to conform to your intentions. Give your dreams and desires a name, a place, a time, a color, a size and a feel, and you begin to give them life.

There is rich abundance stretching out in every direction. Clarity serves to gather and focus that abundance. Be clear and specific about what you desire to have, or to do, or to become. It takes clarity to make it real.

— Ralph Marston
