It is possible to live your dreams. It is possible to achieve goals we set for ourselves. It is possible to design, create, and live an extraordinary life. A couple of years ago, I heard an extremely successful businessman say something that absolutely changed my viewpoint on life. He said, “If I can do it, so can you. If I can do it, there is no reason you can’t do it.” I took this idea to heart. I started dreaming more. I started planning my dreams. I started taking action towards my dreams. I was more resilient along the path. I didn’t let the obstacles stop me. Obstacles can slow you down, but only you can let them permanently stop you.
I have also heard people say, “If you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything.” This is only partially true. People hear others say this and think they can just close their eyes, meditate really hard, and become successful. They find really quickly this doesn’t work. The saying should be: “If you put your mind to a goal, commit to the action necessary, and endure through the obstacles, you can accomplish it.”
If somebody accomplishes something great, there is no reason you can’t. If others can live their dreams, why can’t you? Most people in our society stop dreaming in their twenties. They get out into the real world and they lose sight of their dreams. They settle for a job they don’t really want and forget about the big goals they had set for life. Yesterday I saw a friend I haven’t talked to in a year and he informed me he was going to try out for the pro golf tour! He isn’t only putting his mind to it. He is ready to take action, and endure through the obstacles. He told me he is going after his dreams! Are you?
Are you really chasing your dreams or are you just hoping good things will happen to you? Most people just hope their lives will improve. People don’t realize they need to create their dreams if they want their dreams to come true. The government won’t create your dreams. Your parents, teachers, managers, and friends care about you, but they won’t create your dreams. You have to design and create a great life. You have to set the goals and commit to the action. You have to be resilient no matter what obstacles you face. That is how you become successful. That is how you live a great life. That is how you live the life of your dreams.
I hope you realize if others can live their dreams, you can too. I hope you don’t just put your mind to what you want to achieve, but commit to the action necessary and be resilient through the obstacles. Life is about creating your dreams, not just hoping they will come true. Others won’t do it for you; you have to do it for yourself. The good news: if others can do it, you can too. You have to put in the work. What are your dreams? Two days ago, I achieved one of my big dreams by hitting Hall of Fame ($500,000 in personal career sales). If I can achieve and live my dreams, you can too! Commit to creating your dreams; put in the work necessary to live your dreams; be resilient along the path to your dreams; and soon enough, you will be living the life of your dreams! God Bless You and Your Dreams!
