Two Important Steps

According to Bob Proctor, there are two things you must know in order to succeed:

This actually goes back to what we talked about in the last blog article, "Know Thyself". (If you haven't read it yet - now's your time!).

How can you make progress in any area if you don't know what your starting point is?

Classic example would be someone that wants to lose weight. Obviously, someone that weighs 100 pounds does not need to lose 50 pounds, right? That would be unhealthy.

Too, if you say you want to lose 20 pounds, how will you know that you've done that if you don't know how much you weighed when you began?

You have to know who you are if you are planning to make positive changes in your life. Yeah, I get it that what I've said is interchangeable with knowing WHERE you are. But they ARE interchangeable in this example.

Mr. Proctor put it this way: "Yes, it is IMPORTANT and VITAL to have goals of where you want to be but you FIRST must take time on WHERE/WHO you are!

Bottom line, in order to succeed you MUST know (in both areas) where you are and where you want to be. Mr. Proctor uses the analogy of planning a trip on a map - "It doesn't matter where you WANT TO GO if you FIRST don't know where you are!"

So, if you haven't done so already, take the time to sit down, be honest with yourself and see who and where you are. (Think about it, you can't plan a trip basing your starting point at a place you WISH you were. How would that work? wouldn't!).

Know this: just like on a trip, there likely will be roadblocks, delays, detours and other "road hazards" along the way. BUT, if you are determined to get there, you WILL NOT allow ANYTHING to stop you from reaching your destination!

One of the things that you must do in order to stay focused along the way is to...

"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
