In 2011 I want success. The most love I can give to the world is through the work I am passionate about. I have the goal and I have the tools. So here’s to a some emotional capitalism in the new year. Do what you want because it’s what the world needs.
“Working with people from all walks of life, from full-time moms to CEOs
at large companies, I’ve distilled many universal truths about success.
There’s a secret I’ve learned that works quite well at helping you to
achieve what you want: Decide what you want.
It sounds so simple, but here’s the problem: I see plenty of people who are overly-busy yet who feel unsatisfied and unfulfilled. They are
physically tired, spiritually drained, and far from where they’d like to
be–as if they’ve been running on a treadmill going nowhere fast.
Why? Because they haven’t clearly mapped out what they want and then
taken the steps to get there. Rather than identifying specific goals,
milestones, and dreams (and I’m talking BIG dreams and goals here), they
go through the motions day in and day out tackling unimportant tasks.
They end up…you guessed it…going in circles and wasting lots of
energy. In the meanwhile, they grow increasingly uninspired and out of
touch with their authentic selves.
In order to get what you want, you must first decide what you want. Most
people really foul up at this crucial first step because they simply
can’t see how it’s possible to get what they want, so they don’t even
let themselves want it.
Don’t sabotage yourself that way!”
