Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts. ~Winston Churchill~ We are the consequence of our past and at the same time the cause of our future.
This means that right now we are creating our future with our every thought and with our every action. Let’s see how.
We all accomplish goals in our personal life, in school and on the job. So I have a question for you: "Whose goals are you accomplishing?" Are these really your goals or are they imposed upon you?
For, how do we explain that 2% of the population has 90% of the wealth in the world? This is a well-known fact. Another question comes to mind: are you among the 2%?
Set your own goals and act to accomplish them or someone else will hire you to accomplish theirs! Be the part of the 2%!
What is Your Goal?
It doesn’t matter where we are coming from. The only thing that matters is where we are going. Do you know where you are going? Do you really, exactly know your way?
If you do, I encourage you to proceed! But, if you don’t, I must ask you: "What is your goal?"

That is a crucial step most people don't take time to consider. Truth is, the answer is in you. Maybe your mind doesn’t realize it yet. But your heart does - and you can discover the answer when you are in the Alfa state of mind, which happens during meditation, for example.
Only connecting to your inner self can lead you to your true self and help you get an honest, ego-less answer to the question: "What is my goal?" When you manage to "find it out", set is as your priority, make an action plan, decide to accomplish it and do it!
Find out what your true task on this earth is. Easily focus inwards and complete the journey inside your heart.
Decision Comes First.
