This month’s copy of Success Magazine has just hit the doormat; flicking through it, the Maverick Minute strikes a chord with me.
This month’s magazine features an article written by Jason Dorsey, an acclaimed keynote speaker and best selling author.
I believe in the saying Carpe Diem, I seize the day & enjoy the present, and don’t worry about the future.
Jason’s piece is entitled “Carpe Dream – Here’s a well-deserved reward”
You can read an excerpt of it below,
“You deserve a reward, right? Seriously. You’ve earned it … You’ve earned a reward because you’re investing in your own time to read, learn, be challenged and take risks to move forward. Most people aren’t like you.
Too many people would rather use their free time to watch talk shows about paternity tests, or scripted ‘reality’ shows that are simply train-wreck TV. But you’re different. You’re reading this through choice. You’re choosing to invest in yourself, and that deserves a reward … it’s something only you can give yourself. You have earned the right to act on one of your dreams in the next two weeks.
The catch? Experiencing this dream has to cost you less than £20. Why that amount? Because we’re not going to let money or any other excuse keep you from your well-earned Dream Appointment.
Your dream might be spending two extra hours focussed solely on your family. Maybe you want to go on a long nature walk or call an old school friend you haven’t spoken to in years.
All of us have at least one dream like that. It is a dream that makes us smile, and it’s easily within reach, but we do not allow ourselves to live it. Instead we keep our dream at bay and march on. But today is your reward day. You’ve earned it.
Here’s what I want you to do:
List three dreams you could achieve for less than £20 in the next 14 days. Be specific.
Circle the one dream that you think will give you the most joy and is also easy to achieve.
Now the hard part: Make an appointment to achieve your dream. Add the appointment to your calendar and tell someone who will hold you accountable.
The best part: Live your dream!
You and I both have dreams within reach. Some we share. Some we don’t. What we dream says a lot about ourselves. What we do in pursuit of our dreams says a whole lot more. It’s time for you to say to the world. I’ve earned it! I’ve earned an appointment to live a dream that brings me joy and meaning.” ~ Jason Dorsey
Dreams or goals, whatever you want to call them, have to be an integral part of your life, focus on them and you & your property business will grow exponentially.
A key part of all of my Property Courses is Goal Setting. On my 4 Day Intensive Property Course we spend the first day discovering everybody’s why.
Why are they attending the course? Why do they want more money? They want financial freedom, but what does that mean for them? What will that allow them to do?
Goals help us to sort out what is important and what isn’t. Focus on the things that you want to achieve and spend time on them.
When you set a goal and measure the achievement, you are able to see what you have done and what you are capable of. This process of achieving goals gives you the confidence and a belief in your self. As Jason Dorsey ‘Live your dream’.
The students, on my property courses & Mentorship Programme, create dream boards, or vision boards to inspire them and keep them focussed.
When I live one of my dreams, I take photos or videos and then use them on my desktop as a screen saver.
I also do this for those goals/dreams I am yet to achieve. In the words of Robert Browning,
“Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, or what’s a heaven for?”
After you have achieved a goal, you will want to achieve higher goals. Looking back you will see the progress you have made. Keep reaching!!
So, my challenge to you; go and list the 3 dreams/goals that you can achieve for less than £20 within the next two weeks. (Put a time to do this in your diary now)
If you’d like to share them with us that would be great. If you don’t wish to share them with us, then that’s great too – as long as you just go and do it!
Don’t let the dream snatcher steal your dreams!
Here is an interview I did with Amber. He explains how he earned £2000 within 4 weeks of attending the course using one of my strategies: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LlCdNhy6I5Y&feature=em-upload_owner
