Someplace in particular

When you can be specific, you can be effective. If you are not making as much progress as you’d like, perhaps it is because you have not clearly defined that progress.

It’s all too common to want to go someplace nice. The way to get there is to aim for someplace in particular.

When you know exactly what you want to do, you’re already well on the way. As you fill in the details of your dream you are in fact bringing that dream to life.

Vague wishes can make you feel good, and also leave you without anything tangible. Specific goals give you a map that leads exactly where you want to go.

The very act of clarifying your intentions gives powerful energy to those intentions. You are capable of anything if you simply keep pointed in the appropriate direction.

Be clear and precise about what you intend, and the path to fulfillment opens up in front of you. Then, take the steps that will bring you there.
