The first step to achieving success and happiness in our lives is to decide exactly what we want. If we are not totally clear about what we actually want it is impossible to make plans and take action to achieve it.

It is also vital to know WHY we want whatever it is we want, because it’s our ‘whys’ that determine the strength of our desire, and our ultimate success in achieving our goals.

Without a big enough ‘why’ our chances of success in reaching any goal are greatly reduced. … We can achieve any honest goal we set for ourselves if we have big enough reasons to achieve it. The more reasons we have and the more passionate we feel about our ‘whys’, the more they will inspire and motivate us. This is why defining YOUR PURPOSE is so important.

Knowing your purpose in life helps you live life with integrity. People who know their purpose in

life knows who they are, what they are, and why they are. And when you know yourself, it becomes easier to live a life that’s true to your core values.

The more reasons we have and the more passionate we feel about our ‘whys’, the more they will inspire and motivate us. We must have important and meaningful reasons for wanting our goals. We must also spend time creating our vision, defining the goals and visualizing what they look like when they are realized. Without compelling and important ‘whys’ you may not ultimately be prepared to do what it takes to achieve success. Our ‘whys’ are effectively the foundations that support our goals and give us the solid base from which to take the necessary actions. They give us the determination to keep working towards our goals no matter what.

When we decide what we want, and our reasons for wanting it are strong and inspirational to us, and we fully expect to succeed, the ‘how’ will come to us. Our conscious and subconscious minds will focus on our goals and how to achieve them, and what we spend most of our time thinking about we will inevitably attract into our lives.This will allow us to make the plans and take the actions that will culminate in us reaching our goals.
