One thing in life is almost guaranteed, if you plan to succeed and prepare carefully then and only then can you expect to have success in your efforts. Your planning and preparation will allow you to reach deep inside and pull out all the successful winning qualities that you were born with. Once you recognize that you have these qualities you can begin to develop them, allowing the winner within you to emerge. Regardless of the goal set whether it is earning more money, saving for a new home, getting that promotion, losing weight, or furthering your education you CAN expect to successfully achieve the goal if you lay out your goal intelligently, then plan and prepare for it thoroughly. For example, when you plan and prepare to complete a project successfully, then and only then, you can justifiably expect to complete the project. Mind you, not each and every one of your expectations will come to pass, as you would like them too. But by having a positive attitude towards your goals combined with your planning and preparation you give yourself an infinitely better chance of successfully completing your goals as you have envisioned them.
Now just because you have planned thoroughly and prepared exhaustively does not mean that the path from where you are today to where you want to be in your tomorrows will be a smooth one. In all likelihood it will be bumpy, full of twists and riddled with quick perilous turns. Know that none of this has anything to do with you personally or how much you prepared. It has far more to do with the fact that no one else is as interested in your success as you are. There will be those along your path that either accidentally or through conscious and malicious undertakings will hinder your efforts to reach your goals. You can reduce the accidental hindrances by working closely and keeping in constant communication with those that you need assistance from. As for the malicious, remember there will always be those out there in competition with you that have little or no integrity. Keep your head held high, work through the problems with dignity and the expectation that you will succeed and you will come out on top in the end and with a level on honor unmatched by those that would take the low road.
Always keep your character and dignity held in the highest regard as you hit your roadblocks. Your attitude, character and commitment to your goals will be the deciding factor on whether you successfully prevail over them or not. When the roadblock presents itself, go back to the basics: Review your plan of action, modify it to go over, through or around the roadblock. If you are unable to conceive a method to overcome the obstacle then seek advice from a trusted source. And as always constantly fill your mind with good information through books, CDs, MP3s, seminars etc. If your mind is filled with positive, optimistic thoughts and ideas you will be far more likely to come up with the creative solution you are looking for.
