The last time we connected, I encouraged you to explore what your “real” dream is. I hope you took the opportunity to really consider your true passion. If there is one thing I’ve learned in life is that many people have a dream but many never take the first step to pursue it. As you continue to think on this dream, what obstacle presents itself from making the dream a reality? Here are some examples of what I’ve heard people say:
“I’m too old.”
“I don’t have enough money.”
“I don’t have enough time.”
“I lack the education/experience.”
So, what’s your obstacle? Take a moment to think about it. Now consider some possible solutions to your obstacle. For example, you may feel your too old to start a business. However, if you follow the business world, it appears the better part of most entrepreneurs are not only 35+ but they are often more successful. Isn’t it funny that what we believe is an obstacle can actually work in our favor? However, let’s say you run into another challenge of not having enough money to accomplish your dream. What are some ways you can obtain the money you need? Some possibilities may be to get a second job, cut back on your expenses, or even earn more money by freelancing on the side. My point is that with every challenge, there are always options. This week, take some time to list the obstacles that stand in your way of accomplishing your dream. Next, start with one obstacle and list some possible solutions. Which solution do you believe will give you the best outcome? Lastly, take one step toward overcoming that obstacle.
Feel free to share your thoughts and breakthroughs on my blog, I would love to hear from you!
