In general we have come to know GPS to mean "Global Positioning System." However you could actually use it for "Growth Plan for Success." A plan is needed if you are looking to be successful and success is generally the product of personal development. For making your plan here are some things you should consider.
In order to be successful you must train yourself to think and act in a positive manner, which leads you to feeling and believing in your success. It is your self-fulfilling foresight! However you have to make it work by creating your own GPS, not a generic one that was made by someone else. Suggestions from others is ok, however only you know your circumstances and only you can determine what will work for you
Success doesn't just land in your lap by accident; it is necessary that you create a plan. To begin with you will want to plan your long-term aspirations. Make the decision now where you want to be and then you can choose a plan of attack that will bring about the things that you want to accomplish as well as the reaching your goals by target dates you set.
Once you have your long-term goals set you need to get your short-term goals lined up. Go over them at regular intervals. As you move to each new goal, remember to make it just a little bit harder that you think you can handle. At each stage you need set your sights just higher than you believe you will be able to reach. By making your goals higher, you will more than likely accomplish more that you would have with a lower goal. Dream dreams, dream big dreams!
It is necessary that our GPS be a very evident part of your daily living. You should have it written out and visible where you can view it every morning so you can go over your goals and the steps needed to meet them on a day to day basis.
Each day you should choose at minimum of one thing that will help you to get closer to your long-term goal. Always move forward in the direction of your goal one step at a time. Continue following your GPS, as it is a great deal harder to begin again. If you lose sight of your goals then you will not achieve them.
Having a dream board with maps out what you want to do or what you want to have when you when you reach your goal. Be as exact as possible. Your board should elicit emotional responses from you, so make sure the items listed will draw on these emotions. Just having a picture of money is not good enough; instead think about what will you buy with the money and place that picture on your board. One that is done create a diagram of the steps necessary for you to reach your goals and then cross them off the list as each one is completed. This will instill a wonderful sense of triumph and the understanding that you have the power of success in your hand everyday by take at minimum one step forward.
It is much easier to have faith and believe in yourself and your capability to reach your goals when you envision yourself in the future whether you are one year, two years or ever five or more years down the road. Picture yourself with double your current income. How would you feel? What would you do with the additional money? How about if your income actually tripled - what would you do with the money then? The truth is you might find it had to spend that much money, and now you don't have to worry where you will get the money you need to pay your bills. The more deeply the desire and real your dream the closer to reality it will become. The forward motion that you make brings things in line for you to receive what you are working for.
Be certain that you use you time wisely. Do not let fear guide or hold you back or you will find that you are flailing. It is possible to be afraid of success, afraid of what family, friends or others may think. You begin to procrastinate and let other things get in the way. You find excuses like just needing a few moments to collect your thoughts over a cup of coffee or you need to check your email. Focus on your goal; it does not have to be perfect you just need to make some progress.
It's understandable and even acceptable to be apprehensive and afraid, as it is only natural. Work for short periods of time and do things in stages. Consider it as stepping-stones in a passageway where you can only see for a short distance. With each stone that you step on the passageway opens to allow you to see a little further. It is not necessary that you see to then end of the passageway, only that you see the next stone in line that keeps you going in the right direction. Remain focused and avoid distractions. Find a place with peace and quiet and if needed let your family know that you are working on your GPS.
Understand the plan and how to work and live it and see it as a roadmap to your success. It is your best friend, not an enemy to be avoided. Go over your goals and advancement often and learn to grow from your mistakes. You will find that you change along the way as you grow whether or not you reach your final goal. You become a different person with the knowledge that you with each step that you take whether successful or not. These steps help you to learn what you need to know to succeed.
You should make certain that your plan leaves room for enjoyment, to think about where you want to be and why. Take pleasure in the personal growth you make along the way. Remember that most fun is in the journey so do not let it pass you by as you look toward the future.
