purpose - self-improvement -
1. It must be something that you personally really want.  Your desire for this goal must be so intense that the very idea of achieving your major definite purpose excites you and makes you happy.

2. It must be clear and specific.  You must be able to define it in words.  You must be able to write it down with such clarity that a child could read it and know exactly what it is that you want and be able to determine whether or not you have achieved it.

3. It must be measurable and quantifiable.  Rather than ‘I want to make a lot of money,’ it must be more like ‘I will earn $100,000 per year by (a specific date).’

4. It must be both believable and achievable.  Your major definite purpose cannot be so big or so ridiculous that it is completely unattainable.

5. Your major definite purpose should have a reasonable probability of success

6. Your major definite purpose must be in harmony with your other goals.  Your major goals must be in harmony with your minor goals and congruent with your values.

IT’S IMPORTANT TO KEEP ONE THING IN MIND: WE KNOW ONLY WHAT WE CAN REMEMBER AT ANY GIVEN POINT.  IN OTHER WORDS, NO AMOUNT OF KNOWLEDGE WILL SAVE US IF WE CAN’T RECALL IT AT THE MOMENT WE NEED IT.

Customers hold the answers to all your most important questions about your product, service, and brand.  The Wonderful Paradox is that the secret of getting what you want is to think most about what they want.

The key, according to Dr. Lickerman, is turning adversity into wisdom.

creating value for others is the key to attaining happiness for ourselves.

“Ironically, the best way to regain self-confidence when we find ourselves facing a problem we have no good idea how to solve may be by flinging ourselves, however blindly; into action, doing whatever we think we can. … what we get from trial and error that rumination can’t provide is the chance to view  things from vantage points we can’t acquire through theorizing alone.”

The toughest thing to do when you’re down is to take action.  But that’s exactly what you need to do.

In fact, preserving our self-confidence represents the single most important and challenging part of any attempt to accomplish a goal, a fierce moment-by-moment struggle that requires us to smash to pieces even the most fleeting of our negative beliefs.
