most people are interested in improving their lives. The problem is they're not committed to improving them without commitment, nothing really lasts whether it's a marriage, a skill or a career. When I think about the success I've achieved and the success I hope to help you achieve, I can't help but conclude that commitment involves setting goals and making plans that enable success. Some of this preparation is lofty, and some is downright mundane, But it's all an essential part of the set up. Without this set up, success is elusive. For example, when I first jumped into selling life insurance, one thing immediately became obvious. I'd better learn how to read a map. Sounds silly. These were the days before GPS on a cellphone told you what turned to take. If you couldn't read a map, you couldn't reach your destination. Simply put, I realized I wouldn't be able to reach my destination unless I knew how to get there. This statement is so important that I want to repeat it. I realized I wouldn't be able to reach my destination unless I knew how to get there. Isn't that how life works? If you want to be successful in life. You have to have a plan. You have to prepare. You have to have goals and then you have to commit to meeting them. Just like I couldn't reach my destination without a map. I couldn't reach success without planning for it and committing to it. I'm a big believer in this process. I know it works because I've proven it over and over. Frankly, there's nothing more exciting to me than visualizing a tangible goal, creating a doable plan and then following through to bring it to fruition. Many people forget that they will encounter obstacles during this process. Just remember that problems are merely opportunities in disguise. It takes patience, time and tenacity to overcome these hurdles. But I find it exciting to have some mystery involved in what lies ahead. That's actually something I love about the process. A lot of people talk about passion. They say you have to be passionate about your product or service to be successful. I agree, but something is missing from this advice, and that's having passion about the process of building a great you successful people embrace the fact that they're developing want to be one of them commit to reading a book per month on a given subject and mindfully putting into practice the things you learn. Commit to starting that business you've thought about for the past decade. Commit to finding that mentor to help you troubleshoot the problems. You have it work. Commit to taking that class to develop the skills you need to pursue the career you truly want. Once again, Zig Ziglar said it best. You can be a meaningful specific or a wandering generality. Don't settle for being a wandering generality. Instead. Imagine life as you want it to be. Use your imagination and take the time to figure out what a great life looks like for you. Think money and finances, love and relationships, possessions and desires, service and satisfaction. Anything you can think of that will help you design the life of your dreams again. Think outside the box and dream. If you need a little inspiration, take a moment to visit your local bookstore and leaf through the luxury lifestyle magazine called the Robb Report. This magazine helped me realize that the world contained opportunities I'd never dreamed of as an 18 year old enlisted in the Navy. In so doing, it helped me to dream much bigger dreams can I had in the past
