Right now many people who have experienced success in the past are living with an increasing level of fear surrounding their business and their finances. They are watching the news and buying into the doom and gloom.
At the same time, there are people who are watching the same news and seeing everything lining up for their continued escalating success.
There are two important points here.
One is that even in the worst economic times, or times of social unrest, there are people who have a vision and make a substantial fortune from their ability to see what others don’t. That makes it a great time for those people.
The second point is that you have a choice of using the dip in your business and/or finances as an opportunity to take a risk on something bigger and better or an excuse to throw in the towel and play the victim card.
It’s up to you if you choose to create a new, bigger vision or give up on your dreams.
These are your only two options. It is true that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, but only if you allow it. It’s all up to you. You choose.
It is true that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, but only if you allow it. It’s all up to you. You choose.
You learn so much more from your struggles and your subsequent triumph over them than you ever could from an easy path to a comfortable level of success.
It’s true in nature too. As a plant comes out of the ground it’s pushing against what ever is above it at the same time it is driving roots deep into the earth in the other direction. It’s building a foundation of grounding strength at the same time it’s reaching for the sun. Everything in nature knows that it needs a solid foundation on which to reach out and grow.
You need a solid foundation too.
Create your vision of who you want to be in the world, how you want to serve.
Then build your foundation by grounding yourself in the clarity of your vision. Now you can reach for the sun and the stars with the success blueprint you create that will give you the focus to keep moving forward confidently despite any challenges you face.
If fear is so overwhelming in your life right now, you may be allowing it to blind you to the opportunities that are right in front of you. Those are opportunities that other people who have made the decision to suck it up and keep moving forward are grabbing and running with. And they’re doing it right in front of your face and you can’t see it.
Fear is a silent killer. It kills your aspirations. It kills your desires. And when you desire is gone, your vision will evaporate and your dreams disappear so quickly and completely that you’re left to wonder if they were ever real at all.
Yes, your dreams were real, but your fear got the best of you because you didn’t have a clear an compelling vision to build a foundation on.
It’s not enough to want something. You have to have a real plan, a blueprint. To create a blueprint, first you must know what you want and why it’s important to you.
Saying you want to be a millionaire is not a dream or a vision. It’s a cop-out. It’s just something easy to say that will satisfy other people who also don’t know how to achieve their goals.
If you are serious about living the life of your dreams you need a real plan, a clear vision and a focused blueprint that will take you step by step to get there.
Anything less than that and you are in serious danger of allowing your fear to block your vision.
