Tips for Driving Your Life in Top Gear

Tips for Driving Your Life in Top Gear : Major(R)Khalid Nasr
Your life doesn’t have to be stale and full of drudgery. Your life can be lived at the highest levels, experiencing joy in every area. Here are my top pointers for kicking your life into high gear so you can get moving on the fast track to success. Secret Key: Success isn’t just doing certain things, though we will certainly do certain things to become a certain kind of person. What kind of person you are is what determines your success in life. Here are my four tips: 1.Become a person of Vision:The best way to kick your life into high gear and begin to succeed in what you want to succeed in is to begin to become a person of vision.The successful person has a fully developed vision of their destination. It is not enough to have a vision of where you are going, but is your vision fully developed? Now certainly we cannot know everything that will happen to us in the future, but we can develop the plan fully, allowing in our plan for a variety of contingency plans.
2.Become a person of Passion:Passion is the burning of the heart.It is the overwhelming desire to accomplish your goal. It transcends the mental assent to a set of ideals. It drives and thrusts you toward your goal.The truths of the mind are driven by the passion of the heart. So by all means, fuel the passion for life that resides deep within your soul. Passion is like a fire. It can rage or it can smolder. 3.Become a person of Priorities:The people who achieve much and have lives that are constantly in high gear are people with an extraordinary ability to know what the right thing to do is and to actually do it in a timely fashion.Discern what the important things are that you must involve yourself in so as to have the life you want. Then relentlessly live out of those priorities. 4.Become a person of Excellence:People who live life in high gear, succeeding in every area of life, are people who place a high emphasis on and strive for excellence in every area of life. Good just won’t do. The best is the target.
