A lot of people seem to have trouble answering the question "what do you want out of life?".

We all need a personal philosophy in life, an overall vision or attitude toward life and the purpose of it, or we risk wandering with little or no impact on our long-term goals.

Once you are clear about your purpose, you can challenge yourself to do better and commit to actions that get you closer to the one thing you want in life. Below are some tips on how to get there:

First, define what success means to you personally.

Second, create a mental image of you as a success.

Third, clarify your values.

Getting clear about what you want is a process of trial and error, and remember, your activities are limited by time and death.
