7. Have a Goal and Obsess over It

I am a huge fan of the teachings of Napoleon Hill. The saying “have a goal and obsess over it” is not the point of the Napoleon Hill works, but as a summation of his message, it works. Here is a guy who shows you how to take your life off autopilot, and frankly, he says that people who achieve things do so because they become obsessed with them.

There’s no set time or age to take control of your life. Even if you run on autopilot you can have a happy, decent life.

If, however, you want to follow your dreams and achieve a happy, fulfilled and successful life, by whatever criteria YOU measure success, you’ll need to switch off the autopilot and set to manual. Are you in control of your life?
