As we prepare to enter into the last quarter of the year, we can paint a pretty good picture about what our year consisted of for the most part. Every year we begin with resolutions, goals and objectives. This year is going by very quickly. It is a another reminder that time waits for no one. When time flies by very fast and our lives are filled with a lot - of activities, work, family, events, and the list goes on - we can easily lose focus on our goals and objectives. This is one of the reasons why writing down the vision and making it plain is vital. Writing down goals helps keep us on path.
I like to evaluate myself and where I am at in my life quite frequently. It helps me stay focused. Thanks to a long time friend, I also added a vision board to 2014, and so I see the things that I am working towards each and every day. Not only do I have goals in front of my eyes, but I also evaluate my life with some questions. These are good questions to ask yourself: Am I where I want to be? Am I closer to my goal? Or am I further away from it? Have I gotten myself off track? What do I need to do to reach my goal by the deadline that I have given myself?
One of the things that I have learned over time is who and what we are connected to has a great impact on our lives. We are connected to someone and something, but the question is what are we connected to? Being connected to the wrong people can effect your life in a negative way. If you want to progress in life and be your best, you want to stay away from people who will pull you back. These people may genuinely care for you and not have bad intentions, but they are not good for you. They may even be preventing you from reaching your destiny.
If you want your life to produce good fruit and be filled with positive things, then let go of the negative people, environments and activities. You must get around successful people in order to have a better chance at succeeding yourself. Successful people speak different - they motivate, encourage, use constructive criticism and want to see you succeed. The people who accomplish their goals live different from the norm; that is way they stand out. They complete their tasks. They don't give up when things become difficult or when people tell them they can't do something. They take care of business properly.
I simply wanted to share briefly on the subject of connections. Everyone is connected to something in some kind of way. Just know, you have a choice in who and what you are connected to. Think about where you want to go in life and choose accordingly. It's just that simple. It's not always easy, but it is very simple.
