Hone in on what drove progress and how it will all help you make future plans. Knowing where you are gives you the starting point for all your goals and visions. Whereas, in your mind, you can see your intended or hopeful destination and your energies are alined to move in that direction … with relentless passion.
- Empowering relationships: Make real connections with people that are valuable and sustainable. Now, it’s not about using people, but by giving people the same things you want. Being appreciated and complimented makes a person feel important, so start there. And, when you feel important, you feel needed and wanted and this only adds to the relationship.
- Innovative action: The ability to recognize what’s needed after the idea; starting with a clear understanding of the problem or situation, to putting the idea into a plan, and putting that plan into motion, and then to new and improved results.
Now use all of these together, and combine, what you want, with your knowledge of what you have already done, to create a plan. Knowing where you want to be stirs direction, motivation and purpose, all the way to achieving success.
