Let us look at an athlete, in his or her own quest for the gold medal.
Athletes work all their lives just to be able to get this highly coveted medal.
Many of these people have had to train since they were very young.
However, they are able to go through everything because they are equipped with these weapons:• Vision:
High achievers should know how to see what lies ahead for them.
They see their goals to the very end, and they do not stop until they get there. Many people do not have dreams.
It is quite sad, but these people never get to achieve anything.
They have become so accustomed to the poor quality of their lives, that they have found comfort in it.
The self-disciplined person on the other hand, does not just have dreams playing in his or her head, this person has these dreams fulfilled, has seen it in actuality and believe that it is theirs, for the taking.• Purpose:
Dreams and goals are nothing if there is no purpose.
When you want to achieve something, you should also determine why you want to accomplish it.

Once all your dreams have come true, you should have attained and completed your purpose.
In other words, your purpose this one thing that you want --- the most.

To be able to formulate a strategy that will work, you need a “template” to follow.
