“If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.” ― Jim Rohn

A great majority of the human population is just drifting through life. They are totally clueless about what direction they’re going in their life. And they never realize that their future is their own creation — what they sow in the present they’ll reap in the years to come.

The minority who join the elite and achieve extraordinary success are people who are in charge of their lives. They know they’re the sole creators of their lives. They know what they want out of life and have a detailed plan of how they’re going to get it.

The top performers know their goals must be specific, measurable, realistic, and attainable, easily divided into small, manageable pieces, and they should have a deadline for their accomplishment.

It’s your choice which group you would like to become a part of — the clueless majority or the highly aware, determined, and successful majority.

“If you don’t know what you want from life, what do you think you will get?" — Napoleon Hill

You must know exactly what you plan to achieve, in what timeframe, and the roadmap you need to follow. As you move forward, you must track your progress, correct your course whenever necessary, and most important stay disciplined and focused no matter the distractions and temptations that come your way. In all circumstances, you must never, ever give up. As long as you’re going in the right direction, even a little progress goes a long way.
