“Are Your Dreams Worth Fighting For?”

 

“If you don’t have dreams you’ll end working for people who do”

~Jeffrey Combs

We all have dreams of becoming someone successful in life. We want to be a person of influence that contributes to the lives of others in some major way. Perhaps you want to be a good politician that serves the people, not special interest groups. Maybe you want to be an entrepreneur that creates products or services that will positively serve  the global community. Whatever you desire to do, starts with a dream. Dreams and vision is what inspire common men to accomplish uncommon things.

A dream is nothing more than an idea that has not yet come to fruition. The more attention and focus you give to it, the more it expands in your mind to become a reality. The ability to imagine and create is one of the things that separates human beings from animals. It’s one of the reasons we are the crown of God’s creation.

Unfortunately, many people today, have given up on their dreams. They gave up the great to settle for the ok. The quote says, “if you don’t have dreams, you’ll end up working for those who do”. There is nothing wrong with working for others, but there is something wrong with coming to the end of life with regrets. I truly believe that no man wants to reach the end of his life, never giving himself a chance. Sadly, this the case for many individuals. They never give themselves a chance and they allow their excuses to be bigger than their why.

Any dream worth having, is a dream worth fighting for. It’s easy to say that doesn’t work, it’s easy to say i’m not cut out for this. It’s easy to say I come from the wrong environment so I won’t succeed. Napoleon Hill, the author of “think and grow rich” says “what the mind of a man can conceive and believe, it can achieve”. It has nothing to do with your background or anything else external.

In conclusion, birds of a feather, flock together. Never let anything or anyone affect your dreams. The minute you do, you have given up on your hopes, aspirations and desires to be successful. Surround yourself with people who get it. These are people who think uncommonly as yourself. Allow your dreams to take you to the top because the bottom is always crowded.

image

One of the challenges people have is getting out of their comfort zone. If you want to succeed in your business or any endeavor that you are engaged in, it is important to overcome this challenge. Business wise, you have to put yourself out there consistently. No one likes leaving their comfort zone.The reason why is because it’s comfortable!

I’ve learned that the best things in life require a big change in mindset. As a business owner, you are a leader. So as a leader, you must embrace the task of getting out of your comfort zone to the point that it seems like you are looking for those kinds of opportunities.

I want to talk about getting out of your comfort zone and provide some ideas that will help you accomplish this if you haven’t done so already. Think about any successful person that has influence. Immediately, you’ll notice that this person has a level of person development that displays confidence. So as an entrepreneur, you must first develop your confidence before you can develop your income.

how to develop your confidence to get out of your comfort zone.

Here are some things that I have done to get out of my comfort zone:

  1. Make videos talking about something you learned. Offer tips, 1-3, about 1-2 mins.
  2. Join a toastmasters group. find one in your local area. Google toastmasters and begin your search. Give a speech.
  3. Read books on confidence/personal development. Go to amazon.com or barnes and nobles.
  4. talk to someone you don’t know. Just say hello.

In conclusion, These are some of the ways to get out of your comfort zone. Understand that your comfort zone is your danger zone. The more you stay in your comfort zone, the longer you delay your success.

A Dream That Can’t Be Shattered

image.jpeg

Dreams are imaginations that you project in your mind. They are desires or fantasies that we usually wish to become a reality. We all have dreams. We have them for ourselves and we have them for our family. Dreams are a part of what makes people get out of bed in the morning. No one can fulfill our dreams for us. It is our duty and responsibility. Sometimes, people say discouraging things to shatter your dreams. Often times, it’s because they have don’t have any themselves. Ambitious people have dreams that can’t be shattered.

image

Its hard to beat a man who doesn’t give up. His dreams are too important to settle for mediocrity. Focus on where you want to go, then plan accordingly. You have a dream that can’t be shattered. A dream that’s worth the grind. You’ll realize that your dream is not just about you. It’s about the millions of lives that will be changed.

image

Many people have allowed their dreams to become nightmares. This is due to a lack of action, wrong network and negative mindset. It is also important to understand that a dream without a plan is just a wish. Many people have been wishing for too long. Wishing this would work, wishing things would get better. A dream that can’t be shattered makes things work, makes things better. Many communities are stricken with lack not only because of less resources. They are so due to a lack of dreaming and planning. You have a dream that can’t be shattered.

Don’t Let Quitting Get You Down( what quitting does to the soul)

image

We’ve all started things and then quit. Some of those things were school, businesses, jobs etc. There were probably hundreds of excuses that we could have given, but the fact of the matter is that we quit. If we’re honest, we will admit that we quit on ourselves. We quit on our goals and our dreams. We all know the ole saying: quitters never win and winners never quit.

Giving up is not a good feeling. We try to justify it, but it does not work. Quitting is hard on the soul because it makes us feel like failures internally. We often try to make up for it by trying something else. As soon as we give up on that, we start searching for something else yet again.

image

It is said that most businesses have a 90 percentile failure rate. Could it be that  many of the individuals running these enterprises failed by quitting? Short comings are a reality in business and life. I’ve mentioned before that when you start something and then quit, you develop the habitual pattern of starting and quitting. This practice doesn’t serve you nor get you closer to your goal. It actually damages your chances for any kind of success.

image

Quitting something that you know you should finish, gives you a sense of un-accomplishment. Even if this is the case in your life right now, you can still turn it around. The only thing that matters is your decision and your actions to succeed. Don’t let quitting get you down. Even if you quit on God, God will not quit on you. He is faithful and just to forgive you. So forgive yourself for quitting. Get back up and serve the Lord thy God. Don’t let quitting get you down.

Created To Be Creative

image

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. He created light and darkness.  In addition,God created day and night. He created animals, land and man. Apparently, God is the creator of all things seen and unseen. Since this is truth, I also believe that man was created to be creative. As humans, we are born with the ability to create. If you look at the creations of men from the start of civilization throughout industrialization, man was actually created a genius. As hard as that is to grasp for some folks, man was created perfect in every way.

Our school system focuses on knowledge in an effort to control what you put into your mind. But it’s your creative side that opens the door to freedom and opportunity. I feel that man is fulfilled when he uses his ability to design his life instead of following the crowd. Albert Einstein said imagination is greater than knowledge. Mr Einstein says knowledge is limited, but imagination is seen throughout the world. Obviously, you need knowledge. You have to know how to do things that pertain to daily living and so forth. That’s common sense. What I’m talking about is living by personal design. You can’t learn that in school. Imagination promotes independence in a dependent society.

In conclusion, you were created to be creative. You were also created to glorify God. In order to live a life of creativity, you must first change your mindset. You must decide that you are going to create. We spend our lives consuming but never producing. When you create, you change your fate. Economically speaking of course. So be creative and be a blessing.

Dreams Don’t Fail, People Do

doubt kills more dreams images

Perhaps, your dream is to become a speaker, entrepreneur or educator. Somehow, things didn’t work out that way. You say to yourself, maybe it wasn’t meant to be. Instead of becoming what you wanted, you became what you didn’t want. So you gave up on your dreams. There is a popular quote that says, if you don’t have dreams, you will continue to work for those who do.

When I got into my business, my sponsor told me that “this business is 80%mental and 20% physical. He then told me that I would quit on him before he quit on me. I thought about that statement. I realized that dreams don’t fail, People do. It’s amazing how we quit our business and say it failed me. I think it is more noble to say I failed instead of my business failed. If someone is succeeding in the same business you’re failing in, it’s not the business. It’s you!

We give up on our business, we give up on our marriage, we give up on life. Is there anything we don’t give up on? We must get rid of the “I will try it for a month to see what happens mentality”. Our dreams don’t fail us we fail our dreams. It is always easy to blame something or someone other than ourselves. This is because we don’t have the courage to admit we failed. In the past, I joined many business programs to support my dreams. I made lots of mistakes and quit. I did not regard the value that was offered to me. Today, it’s a different story.

In conclusion, dreams don’t fail, people do. We are the ones responsible for fulfilling our dreams. They will not get realized without our effort. When it’s all said and done, the person responsible for any failure is you. Leaders accept success and failure. Dr. Martin Luther King had a dream. So should you.

Be The Solution To Your Own Problem

problem solution images

One thing that’s for sure in life, is that we all experience problems. Some problems are big and some are small. In the business world, problems are said to be opportunities in disguise. There are problems that we can handle and others that only God can handle. I believe that many, if not most problems, are caused by us. I also believe that we are also the solution to many if not most problems.

I have learned that a problem is not necessarily a bad thing. There are good problems and bad problems. Having too much money is a good problem. Not having any money is a bad problem. In order to be a great leader, one of the things you have to do is speak in public. If that’s a problem, the solution is to take classes in public speaking. If weight gain is a problem, then proper nutrition and exercise is the solution.

Being the solution to your problem is easier said than done. No one wants to address their own problems. The cost is too high. Sometimes we blame others for our problems when we should blame ourselves. We have a bad day at work, then come home and take it out on our loved ones. If someone says something that we do not agree with, we get angry and hostile. We have to be the solution to our problems instead of the problem. A problem cannot be solved with the same mind that caused it.

In closing, the world is facing global challenges. The issues are spiritual, physical, economical and political. All of these problems can be solved provided that the solutions benefit the global community equally and righteously. God is not going to solve everything for us. We must be proactive in the process.
