As you review the previous week’s results and plan for a new week of work and activities, it is easy to feel overwhelmed by the challenges that lie ahead. How we prepare to meet those challenges determines the difference between success and failure. Consider the following…

  • Set your goals high. The stronger your sense of purpose, the more energy you will have to follow that purpose.

  • Dream big, meaningful dreams with no compromises. The most compelling dreams are the ones that will continue pulling you toward them.

  • Live each day with a positive purpose set firmly in front of you. Focused effort will eventually make you tired, and yet after a brief rest, you'll be ready to go again. The weariness that comes from living with no purpose can be diminished only by directing your efforts toward a meaningful objective.

    There is a powerful, meaningful, compelling vision with which you can personally connect. Choose to open yourself to the things that are the most profoundly meaningful to you, and fill your moments with powerful purpose.

    A strong sense of purpose will give you energy and keep you going past the challenges, distractions and temptations that come along. It will make a positive difference in everything you do.
