All of us have had dreams from early childhood up until now. As we got older the dreams may have changed, but we all have dreams that we would like to accomplish. The sad reality is that most people will shape their dreams around their income rather than using their dreams to increase their income.
What am I getting at? Let me explain. Let’s say someone makes $80k/yr. at their corporate job. Most likely they have tied their “dreams” or goals into what $80k/yr can buy them; car, home, travel, etc. They can not imagine driving a Ferrari or living in a multi-million dollar home because to them it is not “realistic.” They have no way of achieving those goals so the settle for what they can afford.
I am challenging you to develop a dream so big it intimidates you. When you have a big dream that is bigger than your current circumstances, it forces you to take action and make the kind of money to afford what you want. You will strive to make enough money to be able to afford that multi-million dollar home or retire your wife/husband from their job; even yourself! You were created to do more and be more, not just settle for what life or your boss says your value is. You can begin to shape your financial future by just increasing your dreams alone! When your subconscious mind is set on achieving a goal, it will begin to create and think of opportunities to help you achieve that goal. That is why one of my definitions of success is: When opportunity and preparedness meet. Your mind will have you prepared to see an opportunity and take advantage of it.
So begin to increase your dreams to increase your finances. Stop settling for what you currently have based on your circumstances. Rise up and be all you can be!
Watch any TV commercial or pick up any newspaper or periodical and you will be flooded with information and opinions on what you should or should not do. The question is, who do you listen to?
It is unfortunate that a large amount of people will listen to, and take advice from, people who don’t have their best interest in mind. Sometimes, it is actually from close friends and loved ones who are trying to “protect’ them from making a mistake or making a bad decision.
Having been in business for a number of years, I have witnessed potential entrepreneurs get SNIOP’d (susceptible to the negative influences of other people). They listened to somebody’s opinion about whether or not they should go into business for themselves or not.
The reality of the situation, is that these people listened to individuals who are have not obtained any type of personal or financial success. These advice givers don’t understand that in order to be in business for yourself and make money, it does require an element of risk- a calculated risk. What the potential entrepreneurs did not take into consideration was the ‘fruit on the tree’ that those people giving opinions had.
How can you expect to learn something from someone that has never done what they are giving their advice about? I have never studied or performed a brain surgery. How crazy would it be for someone to take advice or opinions from me on brain surgery? I have no clue on how to even begin a surgery let alone a brain surgery! Yet that is what so many people do when it comes to their finances and making money. They take opinions from people that are in debt, unhappy, and working in a career going nowhere.
The next time that you are going to take somebody’s opinion that is not going to encourage or support you, see where they are at in life. At your job, have you ever looked at the person who has been with the company for 10+ years and observed how happy they are, what kind of car they drive, where they live, etc? If you like their lifestyle, then continue to follow in their footsteps. If however you don’t, then understand that if you keep following their same path, you will end up where they are.
I have been fortunate to have been able to have a set of mentors that are in life where I want to be. They have given me and my family the ability to have someone to model and follow a script for success. These individuals have been able to put up the warning signs of life and enable us to sidestep any potential potholes that would be around the bend.
How about you? Do you have anybody encouraging you to do more with your life? Do you have somebody who has a vested interest in your success? Do you have anybody that you can listen to in order to help your chances of being successful?
I have helped hundreds of individuals create extra income and secure their financial stability while maintaining their current occupation. I do not claim to be any type of expert, but i’m just a guy who has great mentorship and has figured out a few things for himself. I am willing to help others do the same.
