The foundation for all success…
What does success look like to you?
Where are you going?
In your life, that is. Many people struggle with this seemingly obvious question.
Want to see the evidence of this struggle? During the week, ask five random people what they don’t want out of life.
I can all but guarantee they have a sizeable list.
The “I don’t wants” always flow out easily. So easily, that sometimes they seem like they have been rehearsed! It’s as if people are constantly thinking about them.
And why is that? Because, they are.
So after you ask these people what they don’t want out of life, and they’re ticking off their fifth or sixth item, stop them abruptly, pause for a second, and say…
“Okay, I understand what you don’t want out of life. Now let me ask you this, what do you want out of life?”
This is where things get interesting. After you ask this question, you’ll see puzzlement, followed by a creased brow.
Many people will respond, “Well, that’s a good question” or “I’ll have to think about that one.”
It’s like they’re saying, “I’m in a fast car, I’m driving 100 mph and I know for sure I don’t want to go to Florida, Texas, or Arizona. But I’m not sure where I actually do want to go.” What happens then? You end up nowhere!
You end up out of gas and unable to reach your destination because you only know where you don’t want to go. Sounds pretty simple right?
Maybe you’re saying, “Oh boy, Dean, is that the grand wisdom you have for me?” Actually, it’s a huge part of it.
But you have to wrap your head around what the wisdom really is. Once you understand it, you’ll see why this may be the biggest reason you are holding yourself back from breaking through to the next level.
So let me ask you…
What does success mean to you? Where do you want to go in life?
