For a couples of years I wasted my time chasing the wrong goals. I used to set too many goals and I was smart enough to find the best excuses for not achieving none of them. Being a discipline person was really tough for me.
When I started reading How to lead an inspired life and The art of achievement I use my time best, I set clear and proper goals and structure my activities around them.
Wow ! I was so excited to master goal setting and that gives me a clear sense of what I want, a clear conception of what I expect to receive from life and it gives me too a clear idea of what I want to contribute, what I like to make happen and the results I hope to see as a consequence of my efforts. By getting clarity in my life, I do achieve the success I was looking for.
I was always focus on what should I do to become successful and I was wrong. Jim Rohn told me: “Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become“. Since that day I did make sure that my actions reflect my core value.
What’s the third key?
Commitment is the connection between my values, my purpose and my actions. By mastering this discipline I learned the power to overcome any obstacles, and to let my mistakes shows me the best opportunities life has to offer and to make something good about any misfortune.
Those 3 keys: Responsibility, Decision and Commitment help me paying myself first, use my time effectively, learning all I could learn and build better relationship with my friend, my coworkers and my community.
