Defining your own path to success.

Do you ever feel like you are in this constant state of “redefining” your plan for success? 

For example, do you start comparing your “plan” to what your peers are doing? Do you say to yourself: “how come it seems so easy for them and hard for me?” or “maybe my plan would be better if I was doing what “they” are doing”?

We can get down on ourselves, change our course, and then start to lose sight of thing that we sought after, leaving us confused and unsure.

Part of the process of defining success is knowing that you will face resistance along the way. These “blocks” separate the contenders from the pretenders. Which one would you rather be?

Another defeating phrase, “if ____ happens, then I will be happy and successful.” Those who are only focused on the end results, ofter end up pretty disappointed because outcomes change.

To maneuver your way through the resistance, you’ve gotta know where you are today and where you would like to go within a certain period of time.

Here’s my caveat: Asking yourself where do you want to see yourself in three to five years might sound like a logical thing to do. However, here’s what you might want to consider…
