Part 1 – Define what you want!

Today's lesson is part 1 of a 3 part process that we utilize in our everyday life for success. We're passing it on to you so you can have this valuable information. The process is:

1. Define

2. Learn

3. Do

So, today we are going to talk to you about defining what it is you want. It's important during this step to write down what your goals, dreams and even your dreads are for your business and your life. There are really only 2 reasons why people do things that are out of the ordinary. They're either chasing a dream or running from something they're dreading. A dream might be something like paying off your debts, buying a new house, buying decorations for your home, traveling or a new car. A dread might be something like losing your home, medical bills that are mounting, or getting laid off.

Neither group is better than the other. Both have a specific reason for why they're pursuing other alternatives than just a regular 9-5 job. The key is finding out which list motivates you more. Are you the kind of person who likes to look at photos of places you'd like to visit, pictures of the new car that you always wanted to buy or house plans of your dream home? Is this what gives you the motivation to forge ahead in this new business venture of yours? Or do you need to see a list of everything that you know you don't want to happen or is impending right now, for it to motivate you to do whatever it takes?

If you don't know which category you fit into, we'd recommend sitting down for half an hour and just making a list of both. For those of you who are motivated by your list of dreams, here's a video we put together of pictures that we've taken over the last few years. We hope it will help to inspire you to uncover some of the dreams you have waiting inside of you.

We're looking forward to talking with you again in our next post where we cover part 2 of this process: Learn. Until then.

Don't wait for miracles to happen – Be The Miracle!
