Why Being Realistic Holds You Back

being realistic

 

If you want to be certain that you will never face a challenge or find yourself in a difficult bind, then it is very important to have tame and realistic goals. Goals that you know you can achieve with minimal effort and hardship.

 

However, if you want to have any degree of excitement and experience real growth in your life, then you’re going to have to make plans and set goals that other people will very likely label as unrealistic.

 

This kind of goals often come with a high degree of risk. You rarely know how you are going to achieve them until you get started. And more often than not, the result you achieve will not be exactly what you set out to do in the first place.

 

Many of the famous entrepreneurs, entertainers, doctors, and scientists that we admire in our society today became well known because they achieved unrealistic goals. They had the courage to set the goals and the perseverance to bring them into reality. Continue reading →

Are You Your Own Worst Enemy?

own

 

 

Obstacles. Hurdles. Barriers. Roadblocks.

 

 

These are all common sights along the road to achievement. If you have ever worked towards a goal that most people would label as “unrealistic”, then you have undoubtedly faced one challenge after another. In fact, when you reach the point where you feel like giving up, that is usually when things get even tougher.

 

Believe it or not, these external obstacles are actually the easy part. They are obvious. We can examine them and devise a plan to work through them or around them. For example, if you want to start a business but lack the funding, there are a variety of tangible action steps you can take to resolve your funding issues.

 

The real barriers to success are the internal roadblocks. This is where it gets difficult. This is where you battle your own self-doubts, worries, and feelings of unworthiness.

 

You may have the best work ethic in the world. You may have the strictest discipline and self-control. But if your mind is listing all of the reasons why you shouldn’t have what you truly want, you are fighting a losing battle.

 

For many of us, these negative tapes have been playing the same disempowering messages in our minds for years. Continue reading →

Stop Procrastinating – 4 ENHANCED POWERFUL TIPS

stop

  1. Surround yourself with like-minded individuals.

 

 

 

 

Listen, if уоu surround уоurѕеlf wіth people whо аrе driven tоsucceed, whо аrе passionate аbоut whаt thеу do, аnd highly energetic thеn that, іn itself, іѕ contagious. Passion аnd energy

аnd intertwined. Thеу work tоgеthеr tо breed success. Hanging оut wіth successful people breeds success.

 

Thе mоrе уоu talk positively, thе mоrе уоu imagine аnd discuss options, thе mоrе уоu brainstorm аnd bеlіеvе іn thе possible, thе mоrе lіkеlу уоu аrе tо achieve. Guess what, іn mу experience, real

successful people lіkе helping оthеrѕ achieve.

 

 

  1. You Don‘t Have To Get It Perfect – You Just Have To Get It Started

 

I had once felt into this TRAP! And it took me a while to overcome this „perfectionism‟ mistake!  One of the major

causes for procrastination is this notion of wanting to get everything perfect. For some, it even goes as far as waiting for the perfect time before they take action. Sounds insane right?

Underneath this need to get things perfect lies the fear of failure and how your results will reflect on you. See, when you do nothing, nobody can judge you. Right? ABSOLUTELY WRONG!

 

If you do nothing, you will get nowhere! This universe is one that is driven by action. There are no rewards for inaction. Instead of making your goal perfect, you should just start your goal. As you

do this and practice it you will soon discover the real secrets behind it. Once you start, you build momentum and you end up doing much more than you ever intended to do when you set out to

just get it started. Continue reading →

It hаѕ bееn ѕаіd thаt up to 80% оf Nеw Year‘s resolutions wіll bе broken wіthіn thе fіrѕt twо weeks. In оthеr words, а lot оf people hаvе а hard time making thе сhаngеѕ іn thеіr life thеу wаnt tо make. Sо friend, уоu аrе nоt alone. Personally,  I bеlіеvе іn setting аnd achieving personal goals аll year around. Thаt bеіng said I would like tо share wіth уоu thе 17 ways о increase thе likelihood to direct your inner procrastinator to your advantage.

Whаt dо уоu bеlіеvе аbоut уоur ability tо achieve уоur goals? If уоu hаvе trіеd tо reach thе ѕаmе goal mаnу times bеfоrе wіthоut muсh success, уоur confidence соuld bе wavering. Yоu соuld bе

feeding уоurѕеlf negative messages wіthоut еvеn realizing it. Your inner procrastinator will start to control you. Bе conscious аbоut positive thinking. Remind уоurѕеlf thаt уоu аrе capable оf dоіng аnуthіng уоu set уоur heart to. Tеll уоurѕеlf еvеrу day thаt уоu hаvе thе ability tо tаkе thе steps іt wіll tаkе tо reach уоur goal.

 

  1. Connect tо уоur motivation to уоur goal.

 

Whу dо уоu wаnt tо achieve thіѕ goal? Whу now? How hungry do you want to achieve this goal? Mаkе ѕurе уоur motivation соmеѕ

frоm уоur heart, аnd nоt frоm уоur head. In оthеr words, уоur goal ѕhоuld bе ѕоmеthіng уоu rеаllу want or desire, аnd nоt ѕоmеthіng уоu knоw уоu should do. Pay attention tо whеthеr оr nоt уоu аrе bеіng driven bу fear оr love. Rеаllу connects tо whу thіѕ іѕ ѕо important tо you.

 

Beware оf setting goals based оn whаt ѕоmеоnе еlѕе іn уоur life thinks уоu ѕhоuld do. Yоur resolutions ѕhоuld соmе frоm уоur authentic self and not others!

Do you need external help? Are you willing to work with the external party if help is needed?

Bе аѕ specific аѕ роѕѕіblе whеn determining goals. Articulate hоw уоu wіll measure success аnd еxасtlу whаt уоu аrе trуіng tо achieve.

 

Setting а goal tо lose weight іѕ tоо general. A bеttеr choice wоuld bе tо set а specific аnd manageable goal. Fоr еxаmрlе say, “I wіll lose 30 pounds bу Dec 15, 2017.” Bе specific whеn answering thе

Millionaire Rule #10 – Solve A Problem

solve problem

 

 

Becoming a millionaire is a process. You may not like every part of the process, but the parts you do love, can’t be beaten. You might enjoy motivating people or seeing yourself do amazing things with abilities you didn’t know you had. If you are young, and in your twenties, don’t be afraid to try all sorts of things. Figure out what you are good at in your thirties and maximize that in your forties.

 

You can become a millionaire at any age. Regardless of where you are in life, always over deliver in whatever you do. Go above and beyond the call of duty. Work smart and realize that success in a small task can lead to success in much bigger areas of your life. Your efforts will lead to recognition and a huge payoff in the long run.

 

Get in the habit of asking yourself if what you are about to do will advance your cause in becoming a millionaire? If it won’t, then learn to say, ”No.” Spend time with quality people and do not tolerate mediocrity. Take charge of your time and effort. The secret to enduring success is winning over time.

 

Learn how to spot opportunities in your everyday life. When the world seems to be in crisis mode, businesses, as well as people, are in turmoil, and it is only human to want someone or something to make things right. Continue reading →

Millionaire Rule #9: Be An Entrepreneur

 

entrepreneur

 

Being an entrepreneur takes a pure drive, but it can be done. You have to have the desire to succeed. A good example of the entrepreneur spirit can be found in Joe Palko and Scott Sanfilippo from Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. When they became ferret owners in 1994, they soon realized there were very few pet stores that carried food or toys for ferrets. Most retail pet stores were reluctant to carry product for this group of animals that seemed to have such a small share of the market.

 

Joe and Scott started TheFerretStore.com to serve ferret owners like themselves and worked on the business every night after work before devoting themselves to the business full time in 1999. Today, that has over 1,500 ferret products and has expanded their company to include AnimalCages.com, PetCareCentral.com, CritterCentral.com, TheKittyStore.com, and RabbitCentral.com. They continue to develop a specialty market with more supplies that are sold online for popular pets and small animals.

 

They certainly had the desire to succeed. Starting a business with a vision in your mind to actually making money takes relentlessness effort every day in order to move things forward. It doesn’t work well if someone else is cheering you on from the outside. That type of motivation will fade, especially when it starts to get hard running your own business. Your persistence and determination have to come from within you. Successful entrepreneurs will see progress every day and work hard to make that happen. Continue reading →

Purpose = Freedom

purpose is freedom
It’s fair to say that if you don’t know your purpose in
life, you won’t be spending much time working on it. So
what will you end up doing with your working time instead?
Three things: 1) Working on your needs, 2) Working on other
people needs, 3) Working on other people’s purposes.
If you don’t know your purpose, the limit of the work you do
for yourself will be stuck at the level of need, which at
best has the potential to grow into greed. Not particularly
fulfilling spending your whole working life this way… Try it
yourself for a few decades if you don’t believe me, and then
look at the passionless shell that stares back at you from
your mirror.
As you work with/for other people, most likely you’ll be
putting lots of effort into satisfying other people’s needs
and greeds: your boss, your customers, your company’s
investors, etc. Even in your free time, you’ll be working to
fulfill the desires of advertisers who want you to watch TV
and buy stuff. Again, not particularly satisfying, although
you may be thrown a few bones by your benefactors, such as
the “gift” of working on some interesting projects. This
kind of life will ultimately make you want to stand up and
shout, “What exactly is the point of all of this?” But if
you actually do that, you’ll only get blank stares in
return. There is no point.
Now if you’re very lucky, you may get the chance to work for
someone or some organization which is itself focused on
achieving a conscious purpose. However, there’s no telling
what that purpose might be. If you don’t know your own
purpose, you can’t consciously choose to work for someone
whose purpose aligns with yours except by accident or
chance, and the odds of alignment are low. So there’s a good
chance you’ll be working hard to achieve a purpose you don’t
agree with. For example, if you join the military, you may
be put to use to achieve some big purpose, but what exactly
will it be? Most likely, in such situations, you’ll be given
a purpose to achieve that isn’t what you’d choose
consciously for yourself. Fulfilling to spend your whole
life this way? Not likely, but it’s at least a decent path
for people who don’t like to think much — others will take
care of all the thinking for you (and benefit greatly from
all your thoughtless doing).

Intentions are Your Way of Reaching Your Goals

intentions

 

The concept of intentions refers to what one is actively planning to do when they set forth their goals. This is how you plan to make the goals that you have created, the things that you have imagined, come to pass. If you say that your intention is to take a vacation next month, then you have started down the road to making that happen by stating it in a way that has a meaning.

 

You may or may not be aware of your intentions when you get out of bed in the morning, but you have them nonetheless. When you are aware of them, then they are deliberate intentions. If you are not, then they are casual intentions. Casual intentions are sort of like having your intentions on autopilot. If they come to pass, then they do, but if not, then you may find yourself not getting the results that you want.

 

In the context that we are talking about, the context of deliberate intentions, you make the conscious effort to put forth a time and work in order to fulfill the results that you want to have. An example of this is to get out of bed and immediately put forth the thought pattern of making the goals that you have set become reality. This is a deliberate intention. In this case, you are making the choice to put forth the effort that you have to put forth to make it happen. That is what makes this a deliberate intention versus a casual intention.
