When you think of creating a plan, it is good to keep in mind that having a clearly defined vision, along with a healthy dose of passion, almost always guarantees success.

There is a lot to be said about the saying “Begin With the End Result in Mind.” One of the keys to inviting more of what you want in your life is to believe you already have it.

When you create a plan that works for you, along with having the passion to want it to succeed, as well as having the vision of seeing it as your truth, and consciously working towards that vision, it will eventually come to be in some shape or form.

Know where you’re going in life. And if you are not sure, take the time to look into yourself and figure it out. If that means hiring a Life Coach, or purchasing a book self-discovery, then go to it. The time is now to move towards your future. We cannot get time back, so make the most of your life NOW, be pro-active in how you want your life to play out, it is your show, direct it.

Take the time at some point this week to ask yourself some important questions that will help you get started on your road to self-discovery. I would like to have you think about, and answer for yourself the questions below. After that I am going to introduce you to a system, that I created called “Pro-Active Production” which will further help you to establish, and put into action your personalized success plan.

1-What were you dreams and aspirations while growing up?
2-Name your top three achievements of your life so far?
3-What was special about them?
4-When you are at your happiest in life? What are you doing?
5-who are the three people that you most admire?
6-Why do you admire them? What characteristics and qualities do they have?
7-If you could do anything you wanted for a living and get paid whatever you
wanted, what would that be?
8-What are your greatest strengths? How can you maximize these strengths?
9-Are you consciously aware of, and do you make an effort to help others less
10-What pleases you very much in your life right now? What are you not so
pleased with?
11-How can you begin to take the steps to make changes with the things that do not
please you?
12- if you could pass on one piece of wisdom to the whole world that you have
learned to date, what would it be?
13- What do you value most in life?
14- What would you really like to in life? What would really make you happy,
fulfill your inner most needs, and make your life shine?
