Summer Success Series: See It To Believe It!

“You’ve Gotta See It To Believe It!”

True!   When you can see the goal, you can reach it.   When you can see the target, you can hit it.   When you can see the prize, you can obtain it.

But what does “Seeing” it really mean?

The Dream.   You’ve gotta have one.   A Dream.  A Vision.  It needs to live in your mind’s eye first, and then you’ll be able to go for it.

Your dreams can pull you toward your goals.   They provide the daily drive — the daily fire — that will propel you to take the actions necessary for those dreams to become reality.

The problem:   Most people have stopped dreaming.

Remember when we were kids?   We had such BIG dreams!  Nothing was impossible.   Nothing was too grand or too far-fetched.

And then we grew up…

And suddenly there were “limitations”.  Somebody taught us to be “realistic”.  We forgot that we had the power to “create” reality.

It’s sad.  Without dreams — you’re dead.  You merely exist — going through the motions daily until you body catches up with your imagination and …. dies.

So I’m daring you to dream again.   In color.  BIG.  Unlimited.

And as clear as day.

You have to be able to see the future finished in advance.   You have to see the finish line while you’re running the race.   Only then will you be able to pay the price of success.

What is YOUR dream?   I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.  Take a minute to hit the comment button at the end of this article and let me know what you think about the struggle to dream and to make the dreams come true.

Summer Success Series: What Are You Focused On

There are a lot of “Stuck” people out there.

We’re stuck because we’re depressed, in despair, hopeless, paralyzed by fear or failure …. just stuck!

Today’s walk with the mosquitoes and talk with my team was enlightening.   I had something totally different planned to share with them but was led to talk about this topic of focus.  When we were done, and I pushed play on my iPod, what do you know — more about being stuck and what you focus on.

So let’s talk about how you get “Un-Stuck”.

It all has to do with what you’re focused on.   We have a saying,

“What You Focus On EXPANDS!”

How true!   Whatever you fixate on … whatever you give your energy, time, and emotion to … GETS BIGGER!

Unfortunately, most people focus on — fixate on — their problems.   So they get bigger and Bigger and BIGGER until they consume and paralyze them.   Here’s what’s worse:

“What You Focus On MULTIPLIES!”

What?!   Seriously.   It’s all about Attraction.   Whatever your dominant thoughts are, YOU GET MORE OF!  We hate to admit it, but it’s true.  One of the reasons my first marriage ended in divorce is because we spent all of our time focused on Not Getting Divorced.   That made Divorce our predominant thought and that’s what we got — Divorced!   Guess we should have focused our energy on Staying Married, huh?  Or even better Marital Happiness and Fulfillment.    Now THAT would’ve been fixating on the right thing!

I became a Top 10 Money Earner in my last company and reached one of the highest ranks possible.   And I did it in record time.   People would ask me all the time, “how did you do it?”   The Answer:

“I thought about it ALL of the time!”

My predominant and daily thought — even in the midst of all sorts of problems and turmoil — was always achieving that level of success and how it would change my life for the better.  Focusing on that goal worked.   I’m doing it again right now!

I was watching Ripley’s Believe it Or Not and this guy set a record for walking across two buildings on this piece of nylon fabric.   (YES, HE’S CRAZY!!)  But he was interesting to watch.  The fabric was stretched between a window of one building and a window of the other.   From the time the guy started walking the line, his eyes were laser focused on the goal — the other window.   Just think when he took the first step, the target window on the other building was small — but with each step it got Bigger – until it was BIG enough for him to step through in accomplishment!

It’s just like that for YOUR goals, dreams, desires.

We could go on and on about this focus thing.   I just hope you get it and use it to empower yourself because it’s so easy to fixate on the bad stuff of life.   Here’s what blew me away on my iPod this morning:

As many good things happen on the worst day of your life as on the best day of your life. It’s all what you choose to look at.

Wow!

The key to getting “Un-Stuck”? Change your focus!  Remember:

“Obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off of the goal!”

So be like the crazy guy on the tightrope — DON’T LOOK DOWN!  Focus on the goal — the window — the window of opportunity that is wide open before you and getting BIGGER with every step you take toward it!

This Summer, let’s focus on taking our personal development and achievement to another level.   Success is yours for the taking.   Just keep your eyes on the prize and before you know it, you’ll be right up on it.

Here to help,

P.S., I want to know what you think about this.  Take a minute to post a comment to this article.

================================================

Note:   I personally believe that it’s a leader’s responsibility to provide an environment where people can succeed.  My partners and I have made that commitment and have been providing that environment for years.   The success stories are great.   And we’re helping many right now to realize their highest levels of achievement ever.

If you’ve been looking for a place where you can get the knowledge you need to succeed, access quality coaching with integrity, and have a genuine opportunity to win — we need to talk right away.
