Now that you’ve taken the test, let’s analyze your score:

Scores

• 7–13: Your focus is scattered. You allow yourself to be completely distracted from your goals and aspirations by petty and meaningless things, and probably haven’t identified a primary aspiration. You will have virtually no chance of achieving true success in life until you buckle down and force yourself to focus on something concrete, meaningful, and long term.

• 14–20: Your focus is unsteady. You may have identified a legitimate aspiration and are making some effort to achieve it, but you are too easily distracted to make much headway.

• 21–26: Your focus is steady but dim. Your aspiration is in sight and in mind, but at a distance. Your focus is there, but not strong enough to make your aspiration a reality.

• 27–33: Your focus is steady and clear. You think long term and consider your aspiration before making any major decision. But something is still missing—maybe your loved ones don’t really know about your aspiration or you would be willing to change your path if the “right offer” came along.

• 34–35: Your focus is laser-sharp. Excepting family and health, your aspiration is the single most important thing in your life. You are always working toward your aspiration in everything you do and you ignore or eliminate any distractions or temptations that pull you away from it.

Now that you’ve taken the test, let’s analyze your score:
Scores
• 7–13: Your aspiration is a pipe dream. You may have fantasies about having a great career or richly rewarding personal life, but have made no efforts to make them come true or even to see if they really represent what you want in life.
• 14–20: Your aspiration is a distant hope. You probably have some firm idea of what you would like to accomplish, but aren’t making a real attempt to go out and do it.
• 21–26: Your aspiration is outside, looking in. You know what you want and have taken some basic steps to get it. Maybe you know someone important in the field. You’re probably at the stage where you’re “looking into” achieving your aspiration. And when you’re looking into something, it usually means you have an outside
vantage point.
• 27–33: Your aspiration is a realistic goal. You have followed most or all of the 6.5 steps to achieving your aspiration and have a credible shot at making it happen someday. Remember there is a difference between going through the motions and putting your heart into something!
• 34–35: Your aspiration is a reality. You have fully integrated your aspiration into all aspects of your life and have made it your number-one daily priority. You have probably not achieved it yet, but you are on a clear path and have already passed several key milestones. You understand that goals are there to be met and surpassed, not held as an ideal.
