Is your Life Full of Empty Accomplishments?
You might be an achiever, but if your accomplishments are not linked to a purpose then you're wasting your efforts and your LIFE!
At some point down the road you'll stop and ask yourself, "What's next? Why have I been doing all these things in the first place?" And then you'll realize that there's no meaning in anything you've accomplished and that you haven't found that sense of satisfaction and fulfillment you've been looking for.
James Allen has said, "Until thought is linked with purpose, there is no intelligent accomplishment."
INTELLIGENT ACCOMPLISHMENT! That's what you should be striving for. All great achievements in history are built on the collective power of small deliberate actions focused on a single overriding objective. Each accomplishment should build on the previous one, each action should be focused on a sole objective, and each success MUST give your life a sense of meaning and satisfaction.
If you don't focus your thoughts and actions, if you don't use your intelligence to work toward your purpose, then your life will be full of "empty accomplishments" that yield nothing. Wandering aimlessly through life is a weakness that will leave you susceptible to fear and doubt. But having a true purpose will give you strength and make you focused and powerful.
"Thought allied fearlessly to purpose becomes creative force. He who knows this is ready to become something higher and stronger than a bundle of wavering thoughts and fluctuating sensations. He who does this has become the conscious and intelligent wielder of his mental powers." - James Allen
Once you discover your purpose in life, you'll become a creative force. You'll start to recognize all the opportunities around you and learn to choose those that can move you forward toward the ultimate goal of fulfilling your purpose.
There are a lot of choices in life and you'll get lost if you're not clear about your purpose and the path you want to follow. But once you clarify your purpose, you'll become the master of your destiny and take control of your own life. You'll be able to choose the right path for you instead of wasting your time and energy pursuing empty accomplishments that add no value to your life and do nothing to help you create a true success empire.
The smart farmer never throws a bunch of different seeds in the soil with the hope of reaping a diverse collection of fruits. Instead, he focuses his efforts on his clear vision of what kind of harvest he wants. He knows everything about the climate and the earth, and knows which seeds best fit his capabilities and the capabilities of the soil. He knows which crop will bring him the greatest rewards.
You, too, must be clear about your destination before you start your journey - otherwise you may cover thousands of miles, thinking you're moving fast and creating success, only to end up in a place that can never satisfy you. And that's when you'll realize that your long journey was full of empty accomplishments - and that, perhaps, everything you'd ever dreamed of had been right around the corner.
"To put away aimlessness and weakness and to begin to think with purpose is to enter the ranks of those strong ones who only recognize failure as one of the pathways to attainment. Who make all conditions serve them, and who think strongly, attempt fearlessly, and accomplish masterfully." - James Allen
Start today to develop the power of a laser-beam focus. Think strongly, live purposefully, attempt fearlessly, and accomplish masterfully!
