What is the difference between a mission, a career and a job? Many people get confused and settle for less than they can be.
~ A Mission, is finding what excites you and gives you pleasure to enhance people’s lives. Taking responsibility to make your own money, pay salaries and wages to reach your dreams and goals.
~ A Career is a position, assisting someone else on different levels in his mission, earned a salary helping them reach their goals.
~ A Job is earning a wage, helping the person who have a career assisting the person on a mission.
Knowing what you want, will make planning easy. Previously we talked about finding a way to creating a good foundation for your future. Now it is all about your mission. What will your end result look after achieving your goals but first we will have to walk the talk my dear.
Where do I Begin?
The first step is to get rid of all negative thoughts and start TO BELIEVE IN YOURSELF! Your inner dialogue positive or negative is related to your relationship with yourself and dictates the outcome of your future. Therefore believing in yourself is very important for your success.
WHAT I SPEAK IS WHAT I CREATE
Say out loud every morning and every night:
I am going to create a fantastic life and I CAN and I WILL achieve my goals! I will be Great!
Creating My Success
Now is the time to list those dreams. Before you make any decisions, especially life-altering decisions, you have to figure out what you want in life and how you want to spend your time.
All your dreams will be possible. A positive mindset plays a huge roll in creating your plan. You and only You can make that happen. People who know themselves and their abilities make the right decisions for their future.
You have to Believe in Yourself. Dream and imagine what your future will be like, start living your dream now in your mind and thoughts and it will become a reality.
If you want a Ferrari, go to a dealer and sit in the car, feel it, admire it. When you are looking to buy a leather couch in future, go to the shop and sit on it, smell it, feel it and see it as already in your house. Let it be your motivator.
I dare you to dream big!
When outlining your future, have no limits, stay true to yourself. Don’t let influences from outside put you at a crossroad, my dear. Develop your style and own vision and perception for your success. Put your hand to the wheel, and know only one way … up up up!.
All Dreams are Possible
Think of it this way, who thought a microwave could cook food. Someone got an idea, start imagining and visualising and eventually, the microwave oven became a reality.
Someone else had a dream to go to the moon, but at that moment there was no technology to make it happen. He believed in his dream. Talked to people and got a team together with the same vision and together they started planning step by step to make it came true. The rest is history.
Don’t let people with small dreams around you detour you from your mission.

Plan of Action
Take a pen and paper, yes a pen and paper my dear, write a review of all the happenings, positive and negative, during the year past. Goals accomplished and those still pending. Keep this in mind with your next planning
When done, start outlining the goals and tasks for the coming year. Do your planning in a journal, clarify your actions for the next year to make your dreams come true. Pen and paper make it more real and personal, my dear.
Know what you want to achieve during the next year. Be realistic, do not put too much pressure on business or personal achievements.
Set some guidelines for the year, for instance, divide it into twelve steps one for each month.
Take the task of each month and divide into four weeks.
Divide the weeks into the workdays of every week.
Work out a detailed example schedule to stay on track, in addition, it will make all very clear.
Have a journal or file for each month.
Keep all receipts and guarantees and file it. Very important!
Write down and keep information on a daily basis as it happens, do it at the end of each day.
Make copies of all slips immediately, because the ink disappears. Dated it at the top and save it in a huge envelope allocated for each month. Name and date the envelope.
If you want to be meticulous have another journal on your desk and keep cross-references to the specific file, it makes it easier to track an issue.
I cannot stress the fact enough, how important it is to keep proper records, my dear. It will save you a lot of money and heartache over time.
Safeguarding yourself, it is important to keep daily records of every move you make. Date and what action was taken.
How to go about it
Without the necessary preparation, your dream will never come true in time. It will be easier if you create a template to do your planning on, every month, week and day have their own page in a file. All you need to do is to date and fill in the framework and your preparation or report is done.
When you plan your ambitions go for the ultimate dream. The importance of goal setting is to aim high. Decisions have to be made above your ability, certainly within range and believe you can reach them.
Write your yearly intentions and plans down, importantly keep it at your bedside table. Read it every night and every morning out loud to yourself.
This is what you want and you going to get it no matter what, most importantly, Believe, it is going to happen. Live as if it already has, even if you don’t know how just know it is going to happen,
What I Speak and Think is what I create.
Start with small steps and climb every mountain, with determination, to reach the great epitome of your vision. Don’t start running on the water, and after a while, sinking halfway with exhaustion.
I CAN DO IT … YES, I CAN AND I WILL!
Write it on your bathroom mirror, more importantly, on sticky notes all over your room.
Read it out loud every time you walk past as a reminder of your final goal, most importantly, it keeps you motivated and focused.
How Do I Handle Failures
There will be failures, my dear, failure is one of the tools for success, furthermore, it makes you mentally stronger. It will have an influence on how successful you will become in the future.
The way you handle failure will dictate the height of your success. Your persistence and determination hold the key.
Let it become a motivating factor. It shapes you and teaches you. Gaining the experience on what to do next time, best of all, what to avoid. In turn, it will help you make better choices.
Never see failure as the End, as a matter of fact, it is only the beginning of great things to come.
Rowena Tsai says “If you don’t rise to the level of your goals, you fail at the level of your systems.”
Get up, dust yourself, apply the knowledge gained as an advantage. Create new systems and make this stumbling block a stepping stone to your success.
All good in life is worth waiting for. It comes with effort and over time. Patience and being consistent with enthusiasm is all that counts.
The bad can easily destroy and it happens in seconds.
My Bright Future
You have to say to yourself “There are no limits to a bright future, all can be overcome, therefore, I am going to dream big and go big!”.
My dear Thinette the only thing holding you back, is you, your thoughts and your behaviour.
All is possible, it is just determination and persistence that makes the difference.
How long are you going to sit idle, living in a dream world, my dear, and let the good life pass you by? Don’t look at all your successful friends, instead, let them admire your success.
