Earl Nightingale said that “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal”. Goals for success are great to have, but without analysis and evaluation in the framework of who we really are all goals are arbitrary and nothing more than way markers along a road to nowhere (Wilson & Wilson, 2016). All goals must be measured against our “worthy ideal”, if they do not stand to scrutiny then we are living someone else’s dream. Getting to the heart of our worthy ideal and understanding where we are in relation to that gives meaning and purpose to life.
“If you can’t figure out your purpose, figure out your passion for that will lead you right into your purpose.” Bishop T.D. Jakes
Practical planning for your Type
Practical planning is a powerful life skill, but if not done in accordance with personality preferences it rarely sticks. Millenials have shorter attention spans and are less persistent with practices that feel boring or of little value, so introducing Type specific planning is a practical application of thought. When we begin to identify what is not gelling with our personality and what is lifting us up we are more able to apply prolonged focused thought, which amplifies our power of creation.
