Begin with the End in Mind - Visualize where you want to be. Think of the “Vision” - Creative Visualization
I included this as part of a previous post about long & short term goals, but I feel the message is so important that it needs to stand on its own.
“He who spends time adorning himself knows he is going to a dance”. ~Kenyan Saying
Preparation is the key to securing your future. Are you adorning yourself? You should be, because there’s a dance awaiting you. The dance is the future that you were destined to live. Start adorning yourself. Invest in personal growth. Read books that will prepare you for the future. Develop yourself into the kind of person who will shine on the dance floor when destiny finally says, “Here’s your chance”. Get ready! The quality of dance you expect in your future determines the amount of adorning you will do today. Raise your expectations. You shouldn’t be expecting to go to some mediocre dance. Your goal should be to dance in the most sophisticated dances reserved for the ones who have invested heavily in themselves.
