Create an Ideal and Work Towards It

There is a great power in creating a theoretical ideal and then working towards it:

  • What would be your ideal job?
  • Your ideal body?
  • Ideal man or woman?
  • Ideal candidate?
  • What would be your ideal holiday?
  • Your Ideal lifestyle?

Use ideals as targets to aim at.

Many people are guided by the wrong guides. They are guided by:

  • Their bad habits.
  • Their friends.
  • Their parents.
  • Their passions and their moods.
  • The current social trends.

None of the above are necessarily good guides.

Theoretical ideals make excellent guides.

For thousands of years before sat nav was invented, people used to navigate by using the stars.

They used Polaris, the north star, as a static reference point, by which to guide their journey. They knew they would never reach the Polaris but having it in front of them as a guide, was very helpful.

Use your "Ideals" in the same way as mariners used the Polaris.

For example, in relation to your diet, ask yourself:

What is the IDEAL diet, for someone of my size, age and profession? What would be the perfect diet plan?

Once you have thought out the ideal diet plan: use that as your guide.

  • Don't eat according to bad habits.
  • Don't eat things simply because your friends have ordered some.
  • Don't eat according to your mood.
  • Eat according to your plan.

What would be the ideal way to talk to people?

If you were a "perfect being", how would you communicate with others so that they were most likely to believe in you and WANT to follow your plans?

Once you have thought-out the ideal communication style, use that as your guide to communicate with people.

  • Don't repeat your old bad habits.
  • Don't talk like the gang.
  • Don't say whatever you feel like.
  • Talk according your conception of "The Ideal".

Repeat the process in every area of your life.

The clearer you make your conception of the ideal, and the more you act in accordance with it, the faster your life will improve.

We know that you will never attain perfection, but at least you are heading in the right direction, and your life will be continually improving, as you approach your ideals.

Try it for yourself and see.
