When Your Destination is Clear, Nothing Can Stand In Your Way

In the movie, The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy must follow the yellow brick road in order to get to her destination – the City of Oz, where the Wizard of Oz lives. She needs the Wizard’s help in getting her back home to Kansas.

But that road is fraught with all sorts of dangers, obstacles and hazards. After battling seemingly impossible adversity, Dorothy somehow manages to reach Oz and, with the Wizard’s help, finds her way back home to Kansas.

The path you take in the pursuit of your dream is very much like that yellow brick road.

It’s a risky journey. You will face all sorts of problems, obstacles and have to overcome many mistakes. What keeps you moving forward is a clear picture of your destination.

You must be able to clearly see your City of Oz.

If you are pursuing a dream, what do you see at the end of your journey?

Most don’t have a clear picture of their destination in life, which is why most do not succeed. When the destination is not clear, it is impossible to complete your journey.

If you can’t see the destination, if you don’t know where you are going in life, you will get nowhere.

The end, your destination, must be definitive, clear, specific and something simple for your mind to anchor itself on to.

In order to succeed in life, you must have a clear picture of your destination.

Here are some examples of destinations to help you:

  • I want to be a senior executive at my company.
  • I want to be a full-time author.
  • I want to be a full-time speaker.
  • I want to own a house by the beach.
  • I want to have $2 million in savings by age 55.
  • I want to be a CPA, Attorney, Neurosurgeon, Astronaut, Priest, etc.
  • I want to grow my company and sell it for $3 million.
  • I want to pay off my mortgage to my home by age 50.
  • I want to sell 1 million books.
  • I want to lose 20 pounds over the next twelve months.
  • I want to run a marathon next spring.
  • I want to become a professional athlete.
  • I want to be able to bench 300 pounds.
  • I want to get rid of my high blood pressure, diabetes, or beat my cancer, etc.

When you are clear about your destination, no dangers, no obstacles, no problems, no mistakes, no uncertainties and no doubts will be able to stop you from reaching it.

Clarity gives you laser-like focus. When you are able to see your City of Oz, nothing can stop you from reaching your destination and realizing your dream.
