Cheers to another dynamic new year!
My theme for 2014 is….let’s DO IT BIG!
It’s that simple- let’s do it BIG! Let’s not just talk about our dreams, but this year in 2014, let’s MAKE IT HAPPEN! Let’s live our dreams and make them come true. You know, at the end of the day, LIVING YOUR DREAM IS ABOUT TAKING ACTION. ACTION gets you to where you want to go.
What are those dreams you’ve been thinking about? Let me give you 3 simple tips to follow throughout this year to bring those dreams closer and closer to reality! It’s easy and it’s simple…here we go:
- Write down your life’s SHORT STORY. Imagine someone is writing an article about you and they’re summing up your life into ONE PAGE. Write down what you see. Don’t try to overanalyze it, just write down what comes to your heart and keep that somewhere safe. Look at that frequently. I was told a long time ago that whatever you focus on will expand. It really is so true! Do you know that when you’re imagining something, you’re FOCUSING on it? Writing down what you want to become will help you to focus on moving towards that goal. So, for instance, if you’re always thinking about failure, then that’s inevitable...that is what you’re going to produce. HOWEVER, you’re not a failure….YOU’RE A WINNER! Writing down your goals and reviewing them- looking at them often will begin to create visuals and imaginative thoughts that line up with your vision. Don’t worry about making it complicated…just write it down. Read it over and over again and begin believing in yourself again. Most of us are so busy, we don’t think about what we want out of life. Take time to write down what you really want out of your life. You’re worth it.
- KEEP TAKING IT ONE STEP CLOSER. A mentor of mine constantly tells me….don’t think too hard! Don’t overanalyze! Now that you’ve written down what you want to accomplish, TAKE ONE BOLD STEP. Yes, take one step! What could that be? It’s totally up to you. Just remember throughout the year to KEEP TAKING BOLD STEPS. Most of the time, we get stuck. We take a few steps and then we say, OH NO…WHAT NOW? Then we stop and overanalyze and OVERTHINK. It doesn’t matter if it’s a SMALL STEP…just take it a step closer. For instance, maybe you’re in a lot of debt and you’re imagining how you can be financially secure. Go out this week and open a savings account! ‘What??? But Amma, I have no money!’ Don’t think about it. Go and open a free savings account and put $10 bucks in there! Every time you get paid, just throw $10 in there. Just start something. Get out of the rut! It will begin to train you to think differently. Maybe you want to start a consulting business. Get on blogger or wordpress or something and build your website…these tools are free! Print your BUSINESS CARDS. TAKE IT ONE STEP CLOSER. The easiest way to get out of a RUT is to take action. Actually, it’s the ONLY WAY. The examples are limitless! If you need advice on taking your dream one step closer, just shoot me an email.
- Get advice regularly. Start investing into relationships. It’s time, my friend, to think BIGGER!!! You need people to get to where you’re going. You need to draw from other people’s experiences and other people’s wisdom and knowledge to get to where you want to go. Why not get good advice to help you move forward? Perspective is priceless. My life totally changed when I started surrounding myself with people who were smarter than me! A mentor told me, when you decide to move forward with your life, there are at least 3-5 people in your inner circle that you can reach out to you to help you. Look, I totally believe it’s true! I started reaching out to people that could help me build my dreams and my hopes…people who had more skills than me in certain areas. This was INVALUABLE. You’ve GOT to invest into good relationships and reach out for help. Stop spinning your wheels and let’s move this baby forward!
Your dreams are so real. Someone somewhere is waiting for you to start working that dream! Our big dreams are not just for us…they are for the world around us! This year, I’m focused on ACTION. I don’t care if I fail at certain things. In the end is unlimited success…so join me this year and LET’S DO IT BIG!!!
