The direction of our gaze is such a powerful tool. The power to create our future is dictated far more on where our eyes are set than on just about anything else.

Think about it. When driving a car, it is effectively impossible to go anywhere but where you are looking. If you try, your progress will quickly come to a very abrupt halt. Life is the same. In both a literal and metaphorical sense, we cannot move anywhere we aren’t looking. If we simply spend our time looking at a specific goal, we can’t help but make progress towards it.

Ask yourself this question: where are your sights set? Are they TRULY set on what you tell others — or even yourself? Or are they set on something else, regardless of what you may say or pretend?

Here are 4 indicators of what your sights are actually set on.

After taking this assessment, ask yourself again, what are your sights set upon? Is it time to make a change and set your sights upon something else? Something of more value?

Happy coding!
