The first principle in developing success in anything is that it is more important to know where you are going than where you came from or are, at this time.
Most people spend more time planning for a holiday, or even a party, than planning a business.
By knowing exactly where you are going you can plan the best / fastest route there. Where you are, right now, is therefore irrelevant - you can be rich or poor, successful or unsuccessful and still achieve what you want - if you know where you are going!
