Even if the future is a mystery, you can help shape it with a set of goals and action plans.

 10  What's stopping you?

Could it be fear or worry? Often times, people discover it’s their own self holding them back. So if you do, it's best to remind yourself of your goals and why you started.  

 11  Be stubborn about your goals but flexible about your methods.

If you keep changing your goals, you’ll lose focus. Be firm on your goal but look at several ways on how to achieve it.

 12  Do it with passion or not at all.

What's the point if you don't love what you’re doing? Take a seat back and check if you're passionate about your goals because success and passion are partners in achieving success.

 13  It's not about being the best; it's about being better than you were yesterday.

 14   It's not the load that breaks you down it’s the way you carry it. —Lou Holtz

If you take on a positive mindset, you’ll be able to see the progress from every fall and obstacle you’ll encounter. And that is success in itself.

 15  If the plan doesn't work, change the plan but never the goal.

It doesn't matter if you fail the first time, when you're determined to achieve something, it might take more than one try! But if you keep at it, you'll soon realize that goal.
