Today’s Topic: Is your dream bigger than your excuse?
Today Kim and I talk dreams and achieving goals. No matter how big your dream, the question is still valid. The reality is we could have quit so many times in our 15 years of “overnight” success. We could have found so many excuses, but our dream was always so much bigger!
Sometimes people confuse freedom with options but having that dream is so important to success. It was always a big challenge building the business. The question I have is: Why was it that we didn’t quit where others do so?
Kim’s theory is that everything happens for a reason and it’s important to keep following the path you’ve chosen. Other people would watch our travel videos and dream. We were selling that dream of freedom and travel. All of the groundwork in our early work, niche areas has led us to where we are today. It’s all about learning lessons and building understanding.
It’s also vital to
- Know what you want.
- Know whether it’s working or not.
- If not, change your approach until it works.
Sometimes though the distance in your brain between your goal and belief is too far apart. Ask yourself if your dream is going to happen. Check your gut feeling — is this dream a realistic one? Check your goals. Are they too far out of your belief?
The next step is setting up an action plan to accomplish your dream and getting honest feedback from a group of trusted people.
