I’m willing to bet this is a word on almost everyone’s list of goals in one way or another. It doesn’t just have to mean financial success, either. It can take many forms, from taking the plunge and starting up your own company to recovering from an illness or completing a marathon.
Whatever it means, you can be sure it won’t just fall into your lap. That’ why I’m not really a fan of the saying, “good things come to those who wait.” They don’t, they come to the people who identify an ambition and keep pushing until they achieve it.
Turning an idea or a dream into a reality is very rarely a straight line from A to B. It’s a journey, and like all journeys there are twists and turns – sometimes wrong turns. Sometimes you simply throw the map out of the window and use your intuition instead.
Ultimately, however you choose do it, if you just keep going; you’ll get there (even if you have to recalculate the route a little along the way).
