We are told that talent creates its own opportunities. But it sometimes seems that intense desire creates not only its own opportunities, but its own talents.
Whatever be the route, to be successful is everyman’s dream. The mind is constantly seeking definitions of success and the elements responsible to get nearer to it.

When a person achieves his desired goal in life, he is said to be successful. A person is not successful accidentally as behind every success, there is always a systematic and planned process and that enters in the guise of the power of visualization. Next is the importance to stay focused till you reach your goal. So success has a rather simple path and is guarded by two words: PLAN and FOCUS.

In the journey to success, focus on self discipline as there are many diversions that may obstruct your path. The greatest enemy of success is procrastination. It is this self defeating behavior which keeps us away from our path to success. Distraction is the second enemy. It is always outside-forces that try to distract your focus and impede your progress. They always try to make digressions more attractive. Do not  allow those forces to distract you from your path.

Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe, and enthusiastically act upon… must inevitably come to pass! Thus the most important factor for success is your vision to see things in the right perspective.  It is a mismatch of our goals with our visualization that takes us away from success. So why not change your way of looking at the things so that you may get what you want?

Keep all these points in your mind and it will not be an exaggeration to say that the glory of success will touch your feet. Remember the the whole world steps aside for the man who knows where he is going.
