How many songs spring to mind that have some version of "Dream" in the title?
Loads! As I'm writing this, I'm singing a fair few of them in my mind.
This really shouldn't cause any surprise, as we all love to dream... It doesn't matter if t's about those gorgeous shoes you've just spotted, a house by the sea, a wild adventure around the globe, beautiful new clients queuing at your doors, or just the great guy next door....
Dreams are truly powerful. Especially when we combine them with powerful visualisations and emotions.
But, the question is, how do we turn our dreams in to reality?
I am truly privileged to work with some utterly fabulous females in business. Quite often the passion they feel for their dreams is totally intoxicating. I sometimes feel a bit cruel when I have to bring back back down to earth for awhile to mix that potion that brings them to life.
You might hear lots of people say that you don't need a plan. You just need the right mindset.
However, if you want to get results in the quickest, most efficient way, then you need a combination of mindset and a solid plan.
Without a plan you'll be getting nowhere too fast!
Yo'll be going round and round the same circle instead of moving straight forward to your destination. You'll hit dead-ends, where it looked to be the right route but leads to nothing.... Oh and you'll be so distracted by everything that pops up unexpectedly along the way.... How can you resist that new shiny thing?
Most of us wouldn't consider travelling to a new destination without a satnav. So why on earth would we risk developing the life and business of our dreams without a solid plan?
A plan doesn't need to be complicated (unless you are wanting to raise a ton of money to get started or grow). It can be simple and easy to follow - so long as you choose to see it as a priority. So here's what I recommend:
At the end of the day, we all get to choose how we spend out time and the action we take. Sometimes we may choose to do just the things that light us up and put off those yucky hard tasks we least enjoy. But when you truly get in touch with your passion and purpose you'll find yourself taking all the actions you need, because you'll be so drive, so committed.
Using the above framework will help you get the success you deserve. Don't settle for less.
