People often ask me how to keep looking forward and maintain a great feeling about their dream and not be distracted by where they are now.
Three simple steps in this question are the key to your success in anything you do.
If you don’t have the clarity of a laser focused dream followed up by a solid step by step process that allows you to focus on exactly how you’re going to make it a reality, it will most likely never happen.
So let’s break it down.
Yes, you have to keep looking forward. What that means is stop living in the past. Stop judging today’s performance and today’s abilities by what you did in the past.
If you are a life long learner, you are not the same person you were yesterday or a week ago because every day you are learning and growing. So what you were capable of last week or last month should have no bearing on what you are capable of today.
That’s assuming that you did something to increase your understanding of whatever held you back before.
If you are one of those people that thinks you can keep doing what you’ve always done and that somehow you miraculously will figure out how to get a better result, it isn’t going to happen.
Which brings us to the second part of the question; maintaining a great feeling about your dream.
This is accomplished by taking personal responsibility. Despite what you may believe about the law of attraction, there’s action that is required on your part for manifestation to occur.
To feel great about anything you have to have a feeling inside yourself that you’ve done everything you can to increase the probability of the result you desire.
That means you’ve learned from what didn’t work last time. You’ve recognized where you need help and you’ve gone out to get it. Whether that means reading a book, going through a course, getting personal mentoring or attending a live event.
Now you know you are equipped to the best of your ability to confidently move forward toward your dream knowing you’re doing everything you can on your side to make it a reality.
The third part, not be distracted by where you are now, is easy!
If you’ve done everything in the first two parts you will be so focused on what you need to do next to get where you’re going that you won’t have time to be distracted. You’ll be too busy following your blueprint and taking the next step and then the next one after that.
So use this as a checklist and if you find yourself distracted, go back to steps one and two and look at what you’re not doing today to get you where you want to be tomorrow.
Until next week, I’d love to hear your thoughts. Just comment on this post on my blog.
If you would like personal mentoring, send me an email detailing what you would like help with. As your mentor I hold a bigger vision for you than you hold for yourself. When you have faith and a team that believes in you, it gives you courage. When you don’t have to do it all yourself, all things are possible for you. Commit today to go for your dream 100%.
