What is it that you really want?
This question couldn’t be more important. Many scholars, personal development experts, and business gurus alike, agree that this singular piece of data is vital to your success. Wallace D. Wattles and Earl Nightingale come to mind as legends that emphasized this critical issue in enlightening ways. They clearly point to the fact that the first step in getting what you want is “knowing what you want”. Next, they direct us to then focus on what we want.
In terms of your goal as a speaker, Anthony Robins, a wildly successful presenter and businessman, addressed these points in a Fortune article. He challenged us to:
- Outline exactly what we want as the outcome from our presentation
- Pick outcomes that we are passionate about
- Not speak if we’re not passionate about the topic or desired outcome
Once you know what it is that you do want, whether it’s an outcome for a presentation, a personal goal, or your ultimate business objective, you can then focus on it and consequently achieve it.
In closing, know, focus, and achieve!
Here’s to knowing and growing…
