    Tell me this.

    Can you imagine a man going to the nearest airport to catch a plane with only the vaguest idea of where he wanted to go? If you were the ticket seller, what would you do to help him? Can you visualize what would happen?

    Man: I'd like a ticket, please.
    You: Certainly, sir, where to?
    Man: Oh ... uh ... someplace nice.
    You: I don't understand.
    Man: Well, it's important I ?get someplace?. I don't want to just waste time. I want
    to really get someplace.
    You: Someplace like ... where?
    Man: Oh, someplace where I can be happy. Where I can have a good income. Get a new car, maybe. Perhaps become an executive with a good company or even have my own business of some sort. Be able to take good care of my wife and kids. You know, I'd like to get someplace where things were really great for my family and me. Just give me a ticket; I'll pay for it.
    You: But, sir, I can't sell you a ticket until you know exactly where you want to go.

    Wouldn't that be your reaction?

    You would have no way to help that man until he could tell you where he wanted to go.

    And isn't that what you've been saying to life?
    ?I want to get someplace? covers everything and yet nothing!

    One thinks he has a goal because he wants to ?be somebody.? But until there is a very clear picture of that position, he cannot hope to
    achieve it. Looking at your life in this way, it isn't surprising that you have not already reached the height of success you might desire ... on the contrary, it is remarkable that you have achieved ANY success at all.

    Without clear, well-defined goals, success is impossible.

    Random post here very deep.

    But your right you have to visualize where you want to be.

    I often turn up at airports asking them what they have. I don't see the big deal.
