Planning for your personal success is all about mapping out the various areas of your life. Just like planning a road trip, you need to map out the following details: the origin, the destination, the vehicle, the suitcase, the landmarks, and finally, the route.

You see, your wonderful mind – your mindset will determine how far your journey of success will take you. This relates to your health, your relationships, your finances, or anything else.

Mindset is the way you look at things and is a driving force when it comes to creating your dream lifestyle.

Developing a winning mindset starts with taking personal responsibility. One of the most important things you can do to manifest your heart’s desire is to take 100% responsibility for everything that happens to you.

Now most people don’t like this concept of accepting complete responsibility for their lives. The main reason? It’s just so convenient and easy to have someone outside of yourself to blame. Who doesn’t want to pass off their failures to someone else? Plus, it’s comforting to have a scapegoat to justify past failures and disappointments when you don’t get the outcome you desired.

Some common scapegoats that easily come to mind are: parents, bosses, the government, gender, race, age, the economy, the media, and basically anyone or anything you feel that’s preventing you from creating your dream lifestyle.

So what does it mean to take full complete responsibility for your life? First off, you have to use your personal power to create the abundant lifestyle you desire.

But here’s an eye opener – you’ve always had the power. This power has always been inside you, but you simply chose not to exercise it. It’s been lying dormant, simply waiting for you to summon this power. Perhaps you’ve been afraid of it, or didn’t know how to use it to it’s full potential.

Whatever your past or current circumstances, know that the past is past. You can’t go back and make changes. Guilt is a terrible way to live. As far as I know, there’s no time machine currently available to permit you to travel back in time to correct any mistakes or to set things right. The past is the past, so make peace with it, accept it and move on.

The only thing you can do is learn from past mistakes and chalk it up to experience. Once you accept this fact, you are now ready to take 100% responsibility for your life.

Stop looking to outside sources to create your success. Look inside yourself and you’ll find the answers there. Success, however you define it, is inside you, and not external. You have everything you need now to create your dream lifestyle.

Of course, there will always be new knowledge to gain, but first appreciate that you have everything you need right now. You just need to be willing to take action.

Maybe this isn’t the first time you’ve looked for a way to make money online. You may have a bookcase full of ‘shelf-help’ books, CDs and DVDs. I’m sure to a certain degree you may have tried several programs and methods that have worked beautifully for others. You then get inspired and want to achieve similar results. Unfortunately, you fail to get the same outcome.

You may start to wonder, “Is it just me? Am I the only one who can’t make money online”? You’re not alone; many people are singing this same song. So let’s look at three key elements you can use to break through the barriers and create your dream lifestyle.
