Personal DevelopmentFor Those Who Want More
Can you do whatever you want?
Short answer, “Yes, pretty much”.
Longer answer. I believe in the “Yes” answer with the understanding that there are exceptions to the rule. No, I cannot be a singer, cook, or an electrician. Why? Because I’m no musically gifted, I hate working with food, and I don’t like repetitive tasks (I need variety). But these are not things “I want”. On the other side, I wanted to run the operations of the entire business and I became the Director. I wanted to own my own business and I started what is today a six figure vacation rental business.
But as with all other things, the road to our dream land is rather long and rocky. Nothing good happens overnight, so you better enjoy the ride.
We face countless obstacles, on our journey. Not knowing what to do, not knowing where to start, lack of courage, all kind of fears, just to name a few.
How did I overcome these challenges? Personal development played enormous role. It allowed me to dream bigger.
You are here because you want to make a difference.
The biggest battle is fought with the person in the mirror.
You can never outperform your level of thinking. Your career, your relationships, and everything in your life will always be only as good as you are. It’s all in our head. The fear and excuses, but also hope and dreams.
Do you want a better job? Do you want to make more money? Do you want to start your own business?
As Jim Rohn famously said, “If you want more, you have to become more“.
Good intentions are not enough.
Our dream is always bigger than we are, and to achieve it we have to do something we have never done before. It’s scary, uncertain and hard, but it’s the only way to win.
Low self confidence
Don't Know What To Do
Don't Know Where To Start
Others Already Doing It
I Don't Think It Would Work
Lack of Direction
Don't Know How To Do It
Not Having What It Takes
Add Your "But" Here
Don't Have Influence
I've Got To Pay The Bills
I Don't Have Time
All of these problems are real and at the same time they are not real.
What do I mean?
Well, look at it this way. What’s more important, to help others or to solve your fear of failure? Because you can spend a lot of time on both. But which one will make a bigger impact?
I have a dream. I don’t know if I have what it takes to make it happen. I’m scared. I think that other people will laugh at me. I don’t have it mapped out. I don’t think I’m ready and I know that I’ll screw something up. I’ll have to solve unsolvable problems and do the unimaginable. But I don’t care because all of these things are irrelevant. The only thing that matter is if I do something small whats within my control today. That’s how I get closer to my dream.
We have limitless possibilities, but we must go after them with all we have.
The time is ticking and I must go.
The hardest part is to start. Let’s not loose another moment. Making a big impact starts with a single step.
Most of us wish and wait. There is a better strategy. Bet on yourself. Master a skill.
What are good at?
Do The Hard Things
It’s easy to get busy, but hard not to waste time. Focus on what’s within your control. There is no shortcut. Do the hard things, they will get you what you want.
What are your best habits?
Connect with others. Give.
How do you connect with your niche?
I’ll be honored if you read what what wrote on these pages, but it’s not the point. I learned, tried, failed and somewhat succeeded. My wish is to speed up your process. Stand on my shoulders, I want you to reach higher.
Go get them. It’s only up to you.
I’ll be here if you fall or just need some inspiration.
