Your Life, Your Map - Part 3

So, we've accomplished four thing in this process so far.  We've...
1. set a goal/point B
2. wrote it down
3. accepted that we must reprogram the way we think
4. accepted the power of taking baby steps

Now, there's another ingredient you need to achieve your goals.  It's called THE MAGIC FACTOR.  I learned about the "magic factor" in a goal designing program by Darren Hardy, the publisher of SUCCESS magazine. It is hands-down the best thing I have ever learned in 23 years of being exposed to personal development material.

Out of everything and anything that I can write about goals, this is the most important.  If this is the only piece of information that you remember from this blog or any source of personal development information, you'll be more than good to go.

Are you ready for it?  Here it is...

YOU are what needs to be worked on, not your goal.

This is the most important personal-development distinction you can realize.  The issue is not IT (health, marriage, money, career, etc.), the issue is YOU.  IT will only be as great as you are.  If you work on IT, it will continue to elude you.  If you work on you, IT will rise to the level of the new you.
