I meet a lot of people who have ideas and dreams.
Some are poets or musicians, others want to be entrepreneurs (or in other words, sell stuff), some dream of being motivational speakers because they want to serve humanity. I have met many people who shared their passions with me. Most expressed the desire for big things: recognition, wealth, and power.
But here\’s the challenge: Dreams cannot be realized automatically; they need to be navigated in order to reach their destination. And if we want our dreams to come true, I think we have to start with a very important question: What do you truly desire?
I believe that there are three approaches or steps that most people should consider as they set out for their journey to success:
1. Be clear about your destination.
2. Be honest with yourself and accept your shortcomings.
3. Surround yourself with a team that will support you in reaching what is most important to you, and who can help keep you accountable through the process of achieving it.
Keep in mind that success is not just about the destination, but also about the journey. It\’s about being comfortable with who you are at any given point and time on your journey. It\’s important to remember that there are many paths to take to reach your goals; don\’t waste any energy comparing yourself to others or trying to figure out how they got to where they are. I believe that success is the process of self-exploration, allowing you to be in touch with your gifts, strengths, and weaknesses; if you do this, it will be easier for you to navigate. If you don\’t know where exactly you want to go, then first ask yourself why do you have a dream, what is your motivation.
I want to share a quote that I came across recently: \”Dreams only come true when we are willing to fight for them.\”
Don\’t be afraid of the obstacles you will encounter along the way because it\’s part of the process; some people even see challenges as opportunities for growth and learning. And don\’t lose sight of your destination. Remind yourself that there will be obstacles and that\’s ok as long as you define your purpose.
I\’ve learned from my mentors and heroes that the person who is making a difference in this world is not always the one who reaches his or her destination – it\’s the one who understands how to navigate the journey to get there.
To draw a parallel, I also believe that success is not just about the destination; it\’s about enjoying and savoring each step along the journey towards your goal.
It\’s more than a matter of mind over matter…it\’s all about how you navigate, enjoy, and appreciate every moment on your way to success!
