In January 1969, Bruce Lee who was relatively unknown at the time took out a piece of paper and wrote this:
I, Bruce Lee will be the first highest paid oriental super star in the united states… … starting 1970, I will achieve world fame and from then onward till the end of 1980, I will have in my possession $10,000,000. I will live the way I please and achieve inner harmony and happiness.
That confirms that the secret to having what you want and desire and doing great things in life begins with you having a definite purpose. Until a man knows where he is heading in life, he reduced his energy and spread his thoughts over so many subjects in so many directions that they lead not to power but to indecision and weakness.
“Successful people move on their own initiatives; but they know where they are going before they start.”
Just as we entered the new year, we have so many individuals pen down so many new year resolutions and goals they want to make happen in 2018. Yes! That’s good! But you must first and foremost:
Decide what is your definite purpose?
What is the one things you want more than anythings else?
From the very moment you make these above choices, the purpose becomes the dominating thoughts in your consciousness and you become constantly on the alert for facts, information, and knowledge with which to achieve that purpose. The effect of having a definite purpose makes your mind, consciously or unconsciously gather a wealth of materials needed to accomplish that nursed purpose. You therefore must:
1. Make your Purpose as clear as possible
If you aim in life is big, you achievement will also be big. Someone said: “if your dream isn’t scary, then it isn’t big enough.”
2. Think Big
You owe yourself a duty to aim high in life. Set a high standard for yourself and consecrate on that one things you will want to achieve, that definite purpose you want to secure.
3. Put your eggs in one basket
Don’t put all you eggs in one basket; it’s all wrong. Put all your eggs in one basket and watch the basket grow. If you’ve noticed, men who that put all your eggs in one basket but do not often fail. It is trying to carry too many baskets that breaks the most eggss. Most people you admire probably had a definite purpose before they got to where they are today.
