Knowing your why is the catalyst to change. But how useful is a GPS without a destination? Your why is your destination. In the end, you are very much creatures of habits.

Check your habits. Are your relationships toxic? Are you poor? Are you unlucky? Successful people do productive things without even having to think about it. How powerful is that!

Your Essential Guide
Without being accountable, you procrastinate. Make your goals public. I personally use my writing and my newsletter to keep myself accountable. If I mention something I will do in my articles or newsletter, then I need to follow through otherwise people will lose trust in me. I will lose my integrity.
