10 Quotes About Planning For The Future
Now that you have your desire or definite purpose you want to tap into your imagination to help create your plan for the future. I discussed in last week’s post how your imagination can be thought of as your workshop where your plans are created and organized. I have also talked about in previous posts the six steps for turning your thoughts into reality. The formation of a practical plan is one of the steps.
- Find a group of like-minded individuals to help you create your plan.
- Decide what form of compensation that you will trade for their help.
- Meet with the group at least twice a week.
- Maintain perfect harmony between yourself and every member of your group.
You Will Need Help Planning
This group is what is known as a “Master Mind” group. It can consist of as many people as you may need. One person might suffice or you might need many more to tap into their “specialized knowledge.” Let’s face it, it is extremely difficult to accomplish anything alone. We simply don’t have all the knowledge necessary to create our plans for the future.
“Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.”
~ Pablo Picasso
“Setting a goal is not the main thing. It is deciding how you will go about achieving it and staying with that plan.”
~ Tom Landry
Everything begins in the mind as a thought. It is going to take a solid, practical plan to transform that thought into an actual physical item, such as money. Once you have your plan, go to work. Do something every day and continue to take advice from your “Master Mind” group.
“Good fortune is what happens when opportunity meets with planning.”
~ Thomas Edison
“You can always amend a big plan, but you can never expand a little one. I don’t believe in little plans. I believe in plans big enough to meet a situation which we can’t possibly foresee now.”
~ Harry S. Truman
You Never Plan To Fail, But It Happens
Your first plan might not be your best plan and you find it doesn’t work. No worries most first plans fail. Henry Ford built two automobile businesses that failed before he started the Ford Motor Company. Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times before he invented the light bulb. If you fail, go back and redo your plan and try again. Keep reworking your plan until you find one that works.
“A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.”
~ George S. Patton
“Unless you have a definite, precise, clearly set goals, you are not going to realize the maximum potential that lies within you.”
~ Zig Ziglar
Working on your plan will help prevent procrastination, self-doubt, and anxiety. As you continue to work on your plan you will build belief in yourself and your plan for the future. As your belief turns to faith then nothing can stop you.
“Plans are of little importance, but planning is essential.”
~ Winston Churchill
“Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now.”
~ Alan Lakein
