Wouldn't you agree that a life of challenge and dream chasing would be much more adventurous and fulfilling than simply settling?
How do I know so much about this? Because "those people" I'm speaking to above used to be me a couple years ago.
I grew up with big dreams. When young I would dream of being the hero, saving the world, and rescuing the day. Like nearly everyone else I always felt destined for more. "More" is difficult to define. I guess what I've found "more" to mean to me is to impact and serve as many people as I can, and to leave this place better because I made a difference. I want to spend my time with the people that I love and doing the things that I love. I want to travel and see places that most people only dream about. I want to be the best husband, the best father, the best brother, the best uncle, the best cousin, the best nephew, and the best friend that I can be.
Sound too good to be true or too dream filled that it will never happen? Then it won't. What you think about your life becomes your life's sentence.
I choose for my life's sentence to be in service to others, for service to many leads to greatness; and if I help enough people get what they want, I can have whatever it is that I want.
Guess what, it's happening. And it can for you too. I believe in you. Do you believe in you? It all starts with a choice. Draw a line in the sand. Write down a life that would be your dream life. A life free of debt, financial stress, and accompanied with time freedom. What would that look like?
Action step #1) Evaluate your associations. It's hard to soar with the eagles and chase your dreams when you are surrounded by turkeys. Upgrade your associations, upgrade your thinking, and you'll immediately upgrade your circumstances.
