Answer the following questions:

Do you really want to achieve your goals?
Do you really want to live up to your potentials and be fulfilled?
Are you willing to do whatever it takes?

Darren Hardy says that one difference between the 5% of people who succeed and the 95% who don&rsquot achieve all that they would like to, comes down to how they spend their time.

How do you spend your time?

One third of your life (8 hours a day) is sleeping. Hopefully your sleep is deep, satisfying, and refreshing. 

That leaves you 16 hours. What are you doing with these hours? Are you using them wisely?

For some there is work, either inside or outside of the home. We know there is body maintenance, errands, chores, relationships, house upkeep, paper work, food prep, raising kids, helping with homework, and family time.

According to Darren Hardy, most people spend their hours of free time on entertainment. This could be Television, gaming, sports, scrap booking, knitting, internet surfing, roaming on social media sites, news junky, shopping, chatting on the phone, or something else. Are these kinds of activities helping you fulfill your purpose in life or helping you reach your long term goals? 

Entertainment is fine, but using it to simply &ldquospend down your life&rdquo or to avoid more important things, is something one might want to think about.

The 5% of achievers use their free time to grow personally. They examine their lives honestly and see where they need to focus and improve to reach their goals. Not just winning a game they are playing in the moment or keeping up with every new show on TV, but the goals that they feel most connected to deeply in their hearts.  They read good books, meditate, go to workshops, learn from successful people, and challenge their short comings. They don&rsquot buy into their own excuses, but instead examine why they aren&rsquot achieving what they really want.

These achievers sit down and spend time clarifying and setting their goals, putting them on paper, setting up those meetings, or making those calls, in order to move forward in the direction of their longings.

What are your goals?
How are you spending your time?
Are you spending daily time on personal development?
How might you move closer today to what you truly want in your life?
