Vision is great but have a PLAN as well

Vision

If you can see it, you can be it.

This is true, but its not the whole truth.

You need a plan for turning your vision into reality.

If you haven’t done so already, formulate your plan of action and write it down. don’t keep it filed away in your head. Keep your plan in a place where you can see it everyday and use it, because…

Write your plan

Committing your vision to paper in the form of a plan also helps build the courage and resolve that are required in order to be persistent in working toward your goal, whatever it is.despite the inevitable obstacles and failures along the way.

Having all the right tools for success is worthless if fear of failure keeps you from using them.

So, don’t let your vision drift away as a daydream. Make a detailed plan of how you will bring your vision to life, write it down and then WORK your plan diligently and courageously and watch the sparks fly.

Today Is The Day

What is your dream? What is your passion?

Are you waiting for the right time to start pursuing that thing that you want do or be?

Are conditions just not quite right to start going after your goal?  

Is the money just a little too short for you to reach for your dream?

Guess what? It never will be!

The time, conditions, and money will never all be perfect for you to start going after your dream, whatever your dream is. And if waste time waiting for everything to be perfect, you will never start. And if you never take your shot at your dream, you WILL find yourself self at the end of your race, with your mouth filled with the rancid taste of regret.
The right day to start is today. Your best time to start marching toward your goal is now. 

No, I don’t mean drop everything, quit your job, and go running out the door in pursuit of your dream. (Although that would be funny to watch).

I mean, write one thing on your to-do list for today that you can accomplish today, then do it. That is taking one small step toward your goal.

Then do,it again tomorrow, and next day. Keep moving forward one step at a time. Eventually you WILL succeed. 

This formula is so simple, yet it is not easy.

Following this formula takes courage, determination, and hard work.

Following this formula requires you to be Brave Enough To Fail

Finding your Dream

Follow your dream.  A simple instruction that is much easier said than done. And it is impossible to do if aren’t sure exactly what dream you’re supposed to be following.

How do you figure out what your dream, your destiny is?

Start by looking inward and asking yourself some questions.

What makes you…

Happy?

What is that thing that you love to do?

You’d be willing to do it every day for no money. (But you’ll take it of course)

Angry?

What is that problem that gets under your skin like no other and that you would love to solve?
Henry Ford was angered at the idea that it was impossible to mass produce an internal combustion engine.

Cry?

What is the issue or thing that you are so passionate about that it can bring you to tears?                                                                                                                 Nancy Goodman Brinker lost a beloved sister, but the world gained the Susan G. Komen For The cure Foundation.

There’s No Shortcut Past Hard Work

Road 2 Success

There is no shortcut around hard work.
Actually. There are plenty of shortcuts around hard work and people choose to take them all the time.
However,there are no shortcuts around hard work that lead to success.
Just ask the average successful starting entrepreneur, who according to Princeton Review, works about seventy hours a week.
I learned this lesson the hard way.While building my own syndicated radio network, I worked really hard at finding a shortcut around the grunt work of making advertising sales calls. I didn’t just fail, I failed miserably and expensively.
It wasn’t until I stopped looking for shortcuts that I found the right path.
Your dream isn’t going to materialize on its on, you’ve got to work it into reality, and that work is hard.
There is a popular saying, “If it was that easy, everyone would do it.”
I prefer,

Anyone can do it

Don’t Buy the Lie

Push Past the lie

In order to achieve our dream, we must first, truly believe in our dream.

Right in the middle of the word BELIEVE, is the word LIE.

The lie is what stands between us and the courage to have faith in, and commit to our dream. The lie tells us that we can’t do it, that the cost is too high, that we are too old, and one of the most powerful lies of all…that we will fail.

In my opinion, one of the biggest lies of all that society drills into us is that..”To fail is bad.”

Fear of failure is the destroyer of more dreams that anything else I can think of.

In order for us to overcome fear of failure and push past that lie, we must first understand the true meaning of the the “F” word and what it stands for. The word FAIL is simply an acronym for…

You Are Not Too…

You are not too...

There was nothing particularly special about me as a child, meaning that I didn’t have a whole lot of advantages.

I was raised by a single woman, my great-grandmother, mostly in the housing projects of inner city Cleveland Ohio, until age 12, when my great-grandmother could no longer care for me. Then I entered the child welfare system.

Statistically speaking, I was too street-hardened to be reached and redeemed, too uneducated to graduate from poverty, and too poor to buy my way out of my circumstances. On paper, I was just too disadvantaged to succeed at anything.

Like I said, there was nothing particularly special about me…except for one thing. Like every person on Earth, I was born with a gift and a destiny that only I can fulfill.

How I traveled from there to here, is a story for a longer book. But I will say this. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I was equipped at birth with all the tools needed for my journey, but it was not until I found the courage to use those tools that they began to work for me.

Today, my mission is to inspire others with the courage to discover and use their gifts and talents, and to achieve their goals and destinies.

What you wer born to do

It is not too late and you are not too anything to be great.
