One of the first things successful people realize is the old adage, “If it is to be, it is up to me.” Your success and your course is up to you. Jim Rohn, the late personal development icon, said you must ask yourself this question: Are all the disciplines I’m currently engaged in taking me where I want to go?
“What an important question to ask yourself at the beginning of the month, the beginning of the week, the beginning of the day. You don’t ever want to ever kid yourself—hoping you will arrive at a good destination when you’re not even headed that way,” Rohn says.
Ask yourself if the direction you are headed is what you want for your life and if it’s your own direction.
“After you have answered these questions within yourself, then take it one step further and ask, ‘What am I doing that is working or not working?’ Debate it all,” Rohn says. “Let the power of your own ambition take you where you want to go, to do what you want to do, to create the life you want to live.”
Success is a though process, which is exactly why I follow other successful people.
