Win or lose you will never regret working hard, making sacrifices, being disciplined or focusing too much. Success is measured by what we have done to prepare for competition.

Combining faith with focused action results in an enormous force of energy; a power designed to bring our well-defined dreams to fruition.

—Michael S. Hazell (Image Free Use)

One cannot survive without the other. We can dream of something happening in our life; we can even have full faith that it will come to be. However, without taking the focused action needed to manifest our dream, it won’t happen. Likewise, we can map out the plan and begin doing the work needed to reach our destination, but if we don’t have the required faith, a full belief that we will actually arrive at that point, we will quickly be knocked off course and abandon our work.

So, we must have this magical combination of faith and focused action. We build our faith by calmly and confidently visualizing this desired state on a regular basis, making it absolutely real within our mind’s eye, using as many of our senses as possible. This meditative state then begins to drive our focused action, keeping us on the path towards its fruition.

The secret of getting things done is to act!

—Dante (Public Domain)

Of course it is! Why, then, do we look back on our day and wonder what we accomplished? After all, we were busy the entire day, from morning until night. But what actions did we accomplish that moved us forward, toward our own personal objectives, as opposed to busy work that simply spent up the precious time in our day?

The key to our personal success, after defining where we want to go and mapping out our path, is to simply do the work—day in and day out—that will move us closer to that destination. And that means laying out what needs to get done before the day begins, and monitoring the day to assure we remain on track, despite all of the useless noise that will inevitably and chronically come our way.
