Plan For Success

in Plan

It is inevitable that you will encounter failures during your life. I would insist that you start seeing these not as failures, but as extremely valuable lessons and stepping stones towards achieving your desired goals. This 'lessons' should not stop you in your tracks, instead, they should inspire and drive you to become brilliant at what you do, as well as prepare you for challenges waiting ahead on your journey to wealth and abundance. Creating financial wealth can sometimes be a very difficult process with allot of obstacles along the way.

Before you even start on this journey, you need to be prepared for what may happen even if you plan everything to the bone. For instance, I had a brilliant concept about two years ago. The business was in the car industry and I really planned and researched this concept to the best of my ability. When I was finished and everything seemed perfect to me I submitted the plan to various financial institutions for funding. During this time the economy collapsed and the car industry went down with it, I'm sure you remember. All the car manufactures and car dealers started having difficulties because less and less people started buying cars. This meant that the venture I planned so thoroughly wasn't so viable anymore and i couldn't get the funding. The idea stopped right there. I didn't plan for the economy to collapse, but it had a huge impact on my goals and my financial plan at the time. This happens, and you need to accept it as part of the process and move on.

This is why planning is vital to create wealth and success. You need to know WHAT you are going to do, HOW you are are going to do it, WHAT resources you have at your disposal and what you can acquire, WHEN you want to achieve certain goals, how much TIME and EFFORT you are willing to put in it and WHERE you want to be at certain points in you life/career as well as where you ultimately want to go. You need to visualize the life you dream about and than start planning on how you are going to achieve it. The more detailed your planning the better.

As mentioned, you must also take into account that circumstances can change, so you must also be flexible enough to change your planning accordingly. Your overall goals must stay intact, but the process of achieving them may change as the need arises. You may need to tune your planning from time to time to stay on track, but that's what makes it so exciting. If everything always went according to plan then there wouldn't be any fun in it, or would there. 

So plan your way to success and ALWAYS have fun during your journey to financial freedom.
