1. Your Dream
Kids always have dreams. Then something weird happens as you get older and get into the job world.
You tend to get realistic. You start justifying why you really don’t want your dreams. Have you found yourself saying things like, If I have a huge house, I would just have to spend more time cleaning it, or a big lawn takes too much work so I just want a small townhouse?
There is nothing wrong with that, but is that really your dream? Do you have naysayers in your life who are squelching your dreams?
If you have a big dream, nobody is going to shake your tree. Naysayers won’t matter.
I challenge you to get your dream back.
Write down your big dreams. Dreams that are so huge the only way you can accomplish them is through your business. You can accomplish good things with a job, but you will never be free and will always be controlled by your boss.
With your own business, you have the freedom to dream and really make a difference in the world. You can accomplish some amazing things with a successful business of your own.
2. Work Habit
You will never accomplish your dreams without an extraordinary work habit.
You may not have a perfect skill set, but you can always outwork your imperfections.
You may be imperfect in the skills it takes to build your business, whether it be network marketing, launching a product or service, but if you outwork your imperfections and work on a regular basis, you will always win!
Let’s say for example you want to become a successful blogger. Begin by making blogging a habit and read 5 blog posts a day 5 days a week. That information will compound in your brain and you will have read 25 blog posts in a week and more than 100 in a month.
That will set you apart from 99% of the people attempting to blog online.
The next step is to write and promote 5 blog posts of your own each week. By continuing to build on this process, you will become an excellent blogger that will set you apart, but it takes a consistent work habit.
Very simply – keep it Positive.
Being happy is a choice. We are constantly bombarded with negative news, so balance out the negative with positive information. Listen to, read and fill your brain with positive and encouraging thoughts.
Think about who you associate with and who you listen to? Are you choosing these people based on the positive energy they bring into your life and business?
When it comes to building a business, everyone will stumble and fall. That’s why it’s so important to surround yourself with mentors and people who will pick you up and encourage you to continue on the path.
This reminds me of a story a few years ago at a Special Olympics event. 9 children were lined up at the stating line for the 100 yard dash. The goal was to run the race to the finish and win. As they started off, 1 little boy stumbled and tumbled and began to cry. All the other 8 children heard him cry, slowed down, looked back and then every one of them went back to help him.
All 9 children linked arms and walked to the finish line together. The cheering from the crowd went on for several minutes!
Keep your attitude positive and surround yourself with positive people and you will reach your dreams a winner!
