“If you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you will spend your life completely wasting your time. You will be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living….doing things you don’t like doing.” Alan Watts
-For the past 5 years I have been asking myself one question before I set a goal….If I had 100 million dollars and I was 100 times smarter than everyone else what would I do? If I would still chase that goal with $100 mil in the bank, then I do it. If I would not still follow that goal with all that intelligence and money, then it goes out the window. Small goals serve a purpose. They are the everyday goals that get things done, such as cleaning out the basement, buying a nice anniversary gift for your spouse, changing your diet. The challenge is, that when it comes to dreaming big, most all of us are stopped by our insecurities. Our fear gets in the way of us chasing what we REALLY want. So most of us settle for goals that are comfortable and don’t allow us to stretch that much. We fear our own success more often than we fear our own failure.
-The secret is, more often than not these really big goals, are easier to achieve than the small goals. They take less time and you get more support. No one really cares if you make that extra sale or lose that extra 5 lbs. But people will get behind you if you start a project to bring clean water to a village in India. People will get behind you if to strive for something that is bigger than anything you thought you could ever achieve. And, these people that get behind you, get behind you with passion……Are there naysayers? ALWAYS. Throw what they say to the curb, until your goal is achieved….then see what they say.
-Dream….dream BIG and the bigger and the more you dream, the more dreams will come your way….this is okay. Don’t get overwhelmed, let those dreams come your way. Visualize them, picture yourself in them, embrace them, love them. Some of them are for you….some will fall by the wayside. Never worry your mind with that, just remember to keep dreaming and NEVER stop! All creation in this world comes from dreamers…..and you are one of them.
