Today I decided I wanted to talk about how people get to their dreams. I was thinking, well, I could talk about setting goals, setting the correct type of clarity with goals, making sure you have deadlines. I could talk about SMART goals. I can talk about a number of things, but what I decided to start with is really simple. It’s that if you decide that you want something, you have to work at it.
Most people are not willing to put in the work. So, they’ve already established a goal, established a dream, established a statement of mission, a thing that’s their purpose in life yet, they’re doing absolutely nothing towards that dream. It’s a disservice to not only yourself, but to the people that are going to benefit from your dream for you not to work at it. So this year, I’m telling you, when somebody is complaining about their job, about their life, about their marriage, about their friendships, what we should all do to be able to help them is to say, “Give me your solution. Give me your solution and what you’re willing to do towards that solution to make a change,“. That’s motivating and pushing a person but it’s also telling them to look at what you’re willing to invest in the things that you want in life, and that’s going to be your pay off.
So, with all the things that we talked about already, positive thinking, self-talk, making sure that you are your best self, acknowledging yourself, and being able to have self-love. If you then do all those things and don’t take an action towards what you believe, what your purpose in life is, what you want changed in your life, then none of that is going to matter because you’ll still be discouraged. You’ll still not believe in yourself. Change your thinking, change your life, but then change your actions to match that thinking. You put those two together and you can have a fearless, awesome life. I’m telling you, it’s real.
