I hope you find it helpful.
3 Questions To Ask Yourself If You’re Ready To Live Your Dream
“If your ships doesn’t come in, swim out to meet it” – Johnathan Winters
One thing potential entrepreneurs continuously ask me is what should I be doing to get started? Should I be researching business ideas? Should I be writing a business plan? Where can I go to get inspiration on a business?
Where I would start is by asking yourself three questions. Now, If I were to ask you these three questions in person, I would ONLY share them with you if you promised to take action. Because if there was any ONE thing that I see lacking with most people who think they want to become wealthy and those who know that they are going to be and that is ACTION.
Here are the three questions you MUST ask yourself in order to make independence your own reality.
1. Are you serious about REALLY living your dream?
2. Are you on the right track to get where you want to be?
3. What can you do today get yourself closer to your dream?
That’s it? You mean that’s all you’re going to give me? Come on – there has got to be some super-secret recipe that you can tell me that will start me on my way, some ONE thing that will lead me on my path to success?
One thing that I’ve also learned is that my path is completely different than anybody else’s. I tried to do things exactly as others before had done, and it just doesn’t work. Now, there are some similar things that have been done before and will surely work. But what you want and what somebody else wants are two completely different things. That is why you won’t hear me telling you how to do things.
I learned some time ago that this thing called your “Why” is what gets you going, NOT the “How.” There are a ton of books by these so-called gurus that will tell you how to trade stocks, or show you how they made millions by doing an infomercial. I love learning how they did it, but it might not necessarily be for me.
Now go back to the three questions above, it is so easy to glance over the questions, but here’s how you do it. Read question number one. “Are you serious about REALLY living your dream?” What is your life like today? Comfortable? Easy? Predictable?
For many, the corporate culture creates an environment of “Just below acceptable.” You do a job that isn’t too hard. You make enough to enjoy life. You have a house, a car or two, take a vacation or two a year and that works. After all, everybody else is in the same boat right?
So if you ask the question, are you serious? Many people will just say – NO. Because their lives are fine right now. Because of that fact, you can’t move forward – you’re not ready to go on. So while question number one may seem simplistic, it is the hardest question for MOST people to HONESTLY answer yes to.
Three simple questions. Three honest answers. That’s all it takes to get you started.
