Power comes from clarity, knowing the bulls eye you want to reach. You get what you want by knowing what you want.
Wise, old souls know what they want. We all have The Force within us. For some, like Anakin Skywalker of Star Wars, the force gets misused. Others believe they don't have access to the force, but really it's because they're not focused, so their results are scattered.
What do you want?
Is it the same thing you wanted a day, week, or year ago? It's hard to hit a target that's always moving. People are fickle. We lose interest. We become dissatisfied and want more, and our interests change over time. But if there's something you really want, you have to stick with it until it comes to fruition. Nelson Mandela's target was to see apartheid end. He spent decades in prison, never relinquishing that target. Finally, in his old age, he helped make it happen. He held true to his target when most would have given up and gone on to a new target.
When you're craving an ice cream cone, you find a way to get it. People who are addicted are very resourceful because they have a specific target backed by strong emotion - an unstoppable combination. You get what you target, it's just a matter of whether you're targeting the best things for yourself and whether you are consciously creating your target. Also, you MUST KNOW that missing the target is ultimately how you reach it.
What's your target? Is it consistent? Do you stick with it even when you don't get the bullseye?
May the force be with you!
