In our youth, I believe we were socially conditioned Success Mastery Academy Review to fit in with everyone else and be mindful of others feelings. When we became adults, it made most of us timid about rocking the boat and worrying about what others thought of us. Go to any bookstore and you'll find an endless array of personal development material. In essence they all say the same thing... You are a worthy human being!"We always overestimate what we can accomplish in a year but underestimate what we can do in a decade." - Tony RobbinsSome years ago, one of the major executives at Honda was asked how far in the future went the company's objectives, plans and projections. The man replied, 300 years. Lately, the word came that Google, with Sergey Brin and Larry Page at the helm, were on a mission intended to last some 300 years.

Why would these large and successful corporations make plans for such extended periods of time? The reasons are quite simple. First, it's because it creates a point of reference that indicates exactly in which direction they are going. The farther the final point of reference, the more accurate the path to be followed becomes.Secondly, by having a far off point of reference, the entire projects take on a much larger dimension. Honda is already heading toward futuristic transportation and Google is setting the stage for the information technology that will transform the world of knowledge.

Great ideas and great discoveries are spawned by great visions. The larger the vision and the greater the horizon, the more inspiring, the more encompassing and creative the thinking process becomes.The potential for growth is directly proportional to the scope of the challenge. We grow by pushing back the frontiers of the possible. We are, to a large extent, defined by the size of our hopes and aspirations.
