We all have dreams we want to achieve but it all narrows down to what you are doing as a person to make them happen. As the Bible says, “faith without action is dead.” You need to keep dreaming while acting on your dreams at the same time. Get out of your comfort zone and work towards the realization of that dream without having backlogs.
Nothing should hold you back at all. As long as you know what you want, I advise you to go for it. Believe that through perseverance and consistency anything can be achieved. Hence the question, how consistent can you be?
Consistency is a key ingredient that must be involved in the achievement of your dreams. As a dreamer, therefore, you need to have a schedule that you follow every day. Trust me if you do so consistency will be the order of the day. Believe me, you cannot have Big Hairy Audacious Goals (BHAGs) and not act on them.
Marcus Aurelius once said, “dare to dream big dreams; Only big dreams have the power to move men's souls.” Your dreams, therefore, should not just be dreams but BIG DREAMS. These big dreams are the first secret of self-made millionaires. Allow yourself to imagine and fantasize about all your career goals and the kind of life you want to live. Think about the amount of money you would like to earn and have in your bank account and I assure this will push you to act.
There is nothing that can limit a man whose time has come. You have the potential of creating the life that you desire. Nobody should tell you otherwise. You just have to believe in yourself. Practice “back from the future” thinking. This is the imagination of how your future looks like. This way of thinking has an amazing effect on your mind and behavior. You imagine everything about your life, let’s say in the next 5 years; What will you be doing? How much money will you be earning? These are the kind of questions that will motivate you to even work hard and stay consistent. You get to know what you want and become not afraid of going for it.
You should have dreams that scare you, that is the only way you will know how big they are and start working on them immediately. Set a clear mental picture of where you are going in life and the career goals you would like to achieve. That way you will become more positive, more motivated, and more determined to make everything a reality. Visualization is an ongoing journey and it raises your esteem. It causes you to like and respect yourself more. There is just something about dreams that stimulates you to do better than you ever have before.
To sum everything up, you need to know that dreaming is the starting point of achieving your goal of financial independence. The main reason why people never succeed is that it has never occurred to them that they can make their dreams come true. As a result, they never try to work on their dreams. When you give your dream a try, your perspective about everything changes; How you act, and carry out yourself. You begin to do things differently bit by bit until the whole direction of your life changes for the better.
