Know what you want, and stick by it.
Before you can begin to work toward your goals, discover what they are. Narrowing them down to one major goal—the goal that is most important to you—will allow you to focus all your resources on it and, therefore, will give you a higher chance of achieving success.
Most importantly, however, stick by your goal! Don’t give up, no matter how hard it gets. Only if you keep working toward your goal will you achieve it.
Identify your goals and write them down.
What do you truly want to achieve in life? Grab a piece of paper and write down all the goals you can think of.
Identify your “definite major purpose.”
This is the thing you are going to single mindedly work towards. Look at your list of goals and pick the one you most want to achieve in life.
Work hard and stay determined.
You will face obstacles, and it may seem as if you have failed, but don’t give up. Keep trying!
Burn all the bridges behind you.
Do not leave yourself any path of retreat. Success is the only option!
