What is your dream? Your goal? Your mission?
It is that thing that monopolises your thoughts while you sleep, when you wake up, on the train home, between sets at the gym, when you can think of nothing else, that’s it!
If you are struggling to discover it then think of what do you know but more importantly what do you enjoy? Do what you love and find a way to make money from it.
Once you’ve found it write it down and then map out the milestones to achieve it.
But even then it won’t be easy, there are going to be endless questions, doubts and reasons not to do it. But your dream is not going to go away, it will keep annoying you, nagging at you until you give it the attention it deserves.
Your desire must be like fire in your veins and once you commit there is no turning back. Investing in yourself and backing yourself is the greatest investment and the scariest decision you will ever make.
Things will get hard, and you may want to quit, that is why your desire must be strong. So strong that it won’t let you quit. You must keep going against the fear, keep working through the tasks, crossing off the milestones and telling people about what you’re up to.
You must visualise success before it appears; see yourself doing it, making sales, calendar full, money coming in, whatever success looks like, visualise it.
Spend time with people who have done what you want to do, learn what you need to make it work. The knowledge will empower you, answer questions and remove doubt.
Then before you know it you will be there realising your dream and living it. You will realise all the stress, doubt and worry had been worth it.
Then you will start to think what else can I do? You will find yourself moving from goal to goal.
With each success comes a greater, more ambitious goal – Casey Niestat.
