“I learned this at least by my experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavours to live that life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours. If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.”
– Henry Thoreau, Walden
1. Clear Goals
Something to focus on. A mountaintop. Standing for something.
“Formula of my happiness: A Yes, a No, a straight line, a goal.”
When my A-plan fails, I will go on to the B-plan and I will go to the next approach until I get to the Z-plan. Because I really want this clear goal.
1. I really want to do this
2. I can do this. I got what it takes & if I need more I can develop what it takes.
People have done it before.
I have done similar things before.
“… by thinking of some recent event in your life where you succeeded in pursuit of a goal, your state hope should increase.” ~ Rick Snyder
3. This is how I will do it
This is one way.
This is another way.
This is yet another way.
If this doesn’t work, there’s another way.
There must be another way.
There’s always a way.
