There’s a saying: “If something is really important to you, you’ll find a way to do it. If it’s not, you’ll find an excuse.” This means that if you really care about something, you’ll figure out how to make it happen.

When we talk about being successful, it’s like having a big goal that you want to reach. Sometimes people wait for special moments like birthdays or New Year’s to think about what they want to do. But really successful people don’t wait for these times. They set goals often and keep thinking about them.

Now, let’s talk about three very important things: revenue, time and impact. These are important keys to being successful.

Making a Map of What’s Important

Instead of just thinking about big ideas, it’s super important to be very clear about what you want. Imagine making a map that shows what you care about the most. On this map, you can pick up to three things that will really make a big difference in your life and work.

For example, if you have a business, you might pick making money, selling a special product, or getting better at your job. The things you do every day should be connected to these three important goals. Don’t make it too complicated—simple is better.

Share and Work Together

Don’t keep your important goals a secret. Tell the people who are important to you, like your family, boss, friends, or even your co-workers. This helps you remember what you want to do, and it also makes you more serious about doing it. If you have friends or family, you can even do this together.

Think Every Day and Plan

Just having a plan is not enough. Every day, take a few moments to think about your important goals. Check your schedule to make sure you’re doing things that help you reach those goals. This simple practice will help you do what you want to do.

Everything Is Connected

It’s not just about making money or doing well at work. It’s also about thinking about what you want in your personal life. When you care about things at home, it makes your work life better too. This is what we call a holistic approach—thinking about everything together.

In the End

Being successful is not just about thinking of big goals. It’s about doing things every day that help you reach those goals. So, remember to think about revenue, time and impact. These are like your superpowers for being successful. As you start to think about your future, use these powers to make your life awesome!
