How to Have Clarity of Purpose

th 3

Have you asked yourself: What is it that I truly want?

I know that sounds like a basic question, but most people walk through life never really asking this one question of themselves. I have often heard it referred to as “sleepwalking through life.”

You go about your day-to-day existence never really knowing what it is you want and just sort of letting life happen to you. It’s a go with the flow attitude. Sometimes that works out for people, but most of the time, it does not.

One trait successful people have in common is their clairty of purpose. Does anyone doubt that Donald Trump has clarity of purpose? Or Warren Buffett? Or the late Steve Jobs?

All of these men know (or knew) what they wanted to accomplish and they set out with determined actions to make it happen.

If you have a vision of what you want your life to be, clarity is what allows you to communicate that vision. Without clarity, you cannot answer such a basic question like “What do you want to be?” or “Why are you in the business you are in?”

If you cannot articulate your vision, you cannot take steps to bring that vision into reality.

People who can communicate their vision, seem to attract people who can help them fulfill that vision. And that translates into success.

When we focus, the brain has an amazing power to help you pick up on opportunities to help you realize your dreams. Have you ever noticed that when you decide to buy a certain car, you seem to see it everywhere? Your brain has become hypersensitive to looking for that vehicle.

It’s the same with opportunity.

Achieving clarity of purpose is a continual process. This is not something you do once and then forget about it. Businesses and people evolve and you must be prepared to continually take stock of your vision as you change and grow.

You must go deep to find your purpose and not just skim the surface of your desires. Your vision must make you excited and motivated.

Visualize your goals. Spend time each day meditating and visualizing where you want to be. This is something even top athletes do before they compete to give them an edge on their competition.

The human mind is a powerful tool with limitless potentials. Remember the quote, “Whatever your mind can conceive, you can achieve.”

But first, you must have a clear, direct and definitive purpose.

From that purpose, comes vision, motivation and direction.

I believe a lack of decisiveness contributes to more failures than anything else. If you do not know exactly what you want, you become like a person with a car and a tank full of gas and nowhere to go.

If that same person has a destination in mind, they can map out a route to reach it.

Every achievement starts with a firm decision.

Have you found your clarity of purpose?
