Have you ever thought about what success means to you. Is it a status that you reach one day or is it a process, which continues throughout your life. An on-going process, in which you create a crystal clear vision of exactly what you want to have, do and be and then use, as the definitive direction for your life. Once you know exactly what you want and you formulate a crystal clear written down vision, everything in your life changes. You have a clear direction to aim for and as such nothing is in your way, everything is now on your way.

When you have no vision and you see everything as being in your way, you need to find ways to get through your day, week or sadly even your life. On the other hand when you have vision, the same situation is viewed as something that is on your way to the future you have envisioned. Any event that occurs, positive or negative is viewed as a part of your journey and as such, you will find ways to get something from every experience.

When you have vision, it is really easy to make this crucial shit, to a place where everything is merely part of your success journey. You will more easily overcome challenges and find ways to learn as much as possible from each challenge, you encounter. It also makes it far easier to be happy and content, as you wake up every day with a clear direction and purpose. Vision allows you to have an understanding, that even if you do encounter challenges and you will, they will no longer be overwhelming, but rather just an opportunity to learn and grow. Henry J Kasier said it so well when he said "Problems are only opportunities in work clothes."

A crystal clear vision also gives birth to a focused, enquiring mind, a mind that is always searching for new knowledge and skills, to support the picture you have for your future. Success is not something you pursue, anything you pursue will elude you, success is a becoming. As you learn more, gain more experience and consistently improve, you will become more and as you become more, you will inevitably attract more.

As you commit to learn and grow each day you will keep growing into the person you need to be, to attract the type of success you have envisioned. Bob Proctor said it so well when he said. "I believe people should study a little bit every day. It should become habitual, like brushing your teeth, combing your hair, having a shower or getting dressed. Study the mind, the laws of the universe and paradigms. There's enough information on those subjects to keep a person studying forever."

Stop pursuing money and start striving to improve your knowledge and skill every day and you will have found the best way to discover true meaning and fulfilment in your life. The pursuit of money as a way to find happiness is in fact, a way of trying to do things in reverse. Money seldom brings happiness, however people who are happy and constantly striving to improve their knowledge and skills, will attract wealth into their experience from many different quarters. Henry Ford said it so well when he said "If money is your hope for independence, you will never have it. The only real security that a man can have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience and ability."

Create a crystal clear vision for exactly what you want in your future, commit to gather and apply all the skill and knowledge you need to support this picture you have for the future. Enjoy the journey; wake up happy, passionate and eager to succeed every day and you will have found the secret to fulfilment, meaning and success.
