How to Achieve Greatness

Everyone has a different vision of success in life. Your greatness can be defined as anything you wish; you simply need to do some self-reflection to decide what is most important to you.

Here are some questions you might ask yourself:
  • How important is financial wealth to me?
  • Is having a happy or large family the most important thing in my life?
  • Are there certain skills or gifts that I would like to master?
  • When I die, what will be the most important goal I achieved?
How To Achieve Your Goals
 
It doesn't really matter what you've set as your true calling, maybe it's becoming a millionaire, living on the beach, or having a large family. The most important thing is that you have found your definition of greatness that personally applies to you.
 
Your next step is to form an action plan on how to achieve this goal. It may take a lifetime, but the only way you're going to get there is with a plan!
 
Think Less Do More
 
It's easy to get lost in your thoughts and plans, but you won't achieve greatness by daydreaming alone. You need to take some powerful action to get there! Greatness won't just fall into your lap - you need to work hard in order to get there.
 
Small Steps
 
Your definition of greatness is probably a lofty, multi-year goal, which can be a very intimidating and daunting task. But it doesn't have to be so bad when you plan things out day by day in small, manageable steps.
 
It's vital to take life day by day and, at the same time, keep the bigger picture in mind. When you set and achieve your small daily goals, you'll build momentum without getting too overwhelmed.
 
Surrounded Yourself With Good People
 
It's always great to be in the company of good, positive people. When you have someone you can look up to and model, you're bringing yourself one step closer to greatness.
 
It's also a good idea to be surrounded by people who can inspire, motivate, and encourage you. My biggest advice to you is to keep the negative, complaining type out of your life. Those people won't bring you anywhere good!
 
Setbacks
 
It's common to run into setbacks on your way to greatness. Things are not always going to turn out like you expect, but that is part of the journey to your success! When you hit a snag in the road, you need to pick yourself up, change course, and forge on.
 
Of course, you'll want to maintain a high level of enthusiasm toward your goal. If a setback has got you down in the dumps, take a short break, then trudge along again! Don't allow anything to get in the way of your goals.
 
You Are Already There
 
Every once in awhile it's important to take a step back and reflect at your life. Are you enjoying your life and your journey? If so, then you're actually already living your dream.
 
Remember: All you'll ever have is the present moment. If you like where you are and where you're going, greatness is already yours!

My biggest challenge during the Kaizen Challenge was doing the challenge and completing it. I am a pilot (ex-helicopter pilot and again in the future) and no two days in a row are the same. I never go to bed at the same time due to different flight schedules (one day getting up at 03:45 to start work at 04:45 and going to bed the next day at midnight due to a late landing. Then next week I am doing an international flight Read more...

 Wealth Insight 2009-06-05 Going beyond visualizing your goal Something hit me the other day. I realized why visualizing your goal doesn’t always work like it should. A picture is not enough. You have to LIVE the feeling it gives you. So if you want good days, you have to enjoy this one. This very one that you are in right now! No matter how it started or what came before. Okay, if it was really and truly a shocker, you may not make it wonderful but you will surely improve it. And if... Read more...
