In order to achieve success in any career, you must first figure out exactly what you want. Perhaps your goal is to get your first novel published, or to get a film option, or to reach the best-seller list. By clearly defining your goals, not only does that allow you to break your goal down into manageable steps, but it also makes you more able to recognize success once you reach it.
2. Why do I want that?
It is equally important to understand your own motivations behind your goals so that you can keep yourself in a mode of action despite any obstacles or distractions that pop up along the way.
3. What is stopping me from having that?
Is there anything under your control that has prevented you from achieving this goal in the past (such as limiting beliefs, fear, or a simple lack of action)?
4. What actions can I take?
What things can you do right now that will help you to overcome those things that have limited you in the past so that you can begin to take actionable steps towards your dream?
