If you could accomplish anything your heart desired what would it be?

If you could shape the world to any form what would it look like?

If you were in charge of setting the rules for the universe how would it function?


As this post is going out I am at the dawn of a vast new industry of my own creation the likes of which my peers have never seen.  I've made up my mind to never again answer to a 'boss'.  From now on I am my own boss only answering for my actions to my family. 

 

It all started with the decision to get intentional.  I made every decision accountable to my goals and dreams.  Once I made the choice that this was the way I wanted to go the follow thru became the struggle. 

 

Just like the questions I posted at the beginning of this blog you first have to define the question before you can answer it.  I know these questions seem HUGH but that’s the point.  If you can't see yourself doing the really big things how ever do you think you will see yourself doing the small things? 


You have to find and define your ending before you can see how to get there.  An idea that Dave Ramsey uses a lot is to figure out where you want to be and then it’s easy to work backward from there to get here.  For example;  If you know you want to buy a car by next July then you determine how much money you'll need to buy the car and by when. 

 

Let's say that's $10,000 by July 1st. 


$10,000 divided by 10months = $1,000 each month

$1,000 divided by 4 weeks in each month = $250 each week you'll need to save to reach your goal. 


$10,000 is a big number and it's a daunting task to think about but when you determine what the outcome looks like and work backward from there; $250/week looks a whole lot more do able. 


The idea of all this is to set up for yourself the end result and then, and only then, you can see how to get there.  A dark tunnel is never ending, but a light at the end of that tunnel becomes an obtainable goal.
