"Forget about trying to compete with someone else. Create your own pathway. Create your own new vision." — Herbie Hancock
In order to get to where you want to go you have to know the path that’s going to get you there. So if you have a dream, if you know your purpose, if you have a supreme effort before you, and you have the drive, the passion and the motivation to achieve it and all you need is the right course to get you there then this is how you find it, you state all of your positions:
1) What is your Present position: Where are you right now? The author Richard Evans once said: “Everyone who got to where they are had to begin with where they were.”
2) The second position is your Future Position: What will your dream look like when you’ve achieved it? The industrialist Henry Kaiser once said: “The evidence is overwhelming that you cannot begin to achieve your best unless you set some aim in life.”
3) And lastly your In-Between position: What steps must you take to get from your present position to your future position?
The Magic Word Pathway reminds us that answers tend to create more questions, and if we take the time to answer these position questions honestly and thoroughly, then this simple process will lead to even more questions to help us map out our pathway to achieve our dreams.
What are your present, future, and in-between positions?
