The first step to self Improvement and achieving any goal is to decide exactly what we want. If we are not totally clear about what we actually want it is impossible to make plans and take action to achieve it.

It is also vital to know WHY we want whatever it is we want, because it’s our ‘why’s’ that determine the strength of our desire, and our ultimate success in achieving our goals.

We will often be assisted by unexpected events and opportunities, or meet people that can help us. This doesn’t mean we will reach our goals with little effort on our part - there’s no doubt hard work and taking action are a critical part of the process. However, when we have a big enough ‘why’ and focus on how it will feel when we achieve our goals, it often won’t really feel like hard work.
