I’ve touched on this topic a few times in my blog but it’s something I feel passionately about and I think this topic can relate and help almost all people.
Let’s be honest with ourselves. We all want success, financial freedom, abundance, and happiness.. right? We all want to vacation when we want, be fulfilled by our work and essentially do what we want when we want. But most people don’t know that they deserve this. YOU CAN HAVE EVERYTHING YOU WANT!!! You just need to know how to get there. Well, that’s what I’m here for. Follow these steps to not only realize that you deserve all your goals and dreams but also how to start working towards it.
STEP 1: Acknowledging and Eliminating your Limiting Beliefs.
The sad part is most of us continually tell ourselves the same story, which ultimately creates our reality. “Success takes a lot of hard work, sacrifice, and stress.” “We can’t always get what we want.” “Money is the root of all evil.” “I’ll be happy when ________.” I could go on and on. These negative self-talks are called limiting beliefs and they are the sole reason why you will never get to where you want to be.
If you want to be truly successful, abundant and happy; you must start by telling yourself a different story. You must change your attitude about success and how to get there. You need to have faith in yourself and your ability to create the life you want. You do this by educating yourself. Don’t take my word for it, research limiting beliefs and how thoughts change your physical surroundings. Make your own opinion about what success is and how to get there. I’m just here to get you thinking. It’s ultimately up to you to make a change.
STEP 2: Acknowledging That Times are Changing and We Can’t Reach Success the Same Way our Parents Did.
It’s really no surprise to anyone that 2017 is very different than 1997 or even 1987 for that matter. Then why is it that people see the route to success as being the same as how their parents got there. NEWS FLASH! We live in a completely different universe than our parents grew up in. We have infinite information at our fingertips (literally). WHY ARE WE STILL LISTENING TO THEM ON HOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL?? No offense Mom & Dad it is natural for you to want to teach us how to grow up and in any other generation this would be okay BUT we, Millennials, are an extremely unique generation. We need to realize this about ourselves and be brave enough to do something different than what we are told by our elders. This is the way to success. Unless your dream is to be engulfed by the rat race, working hard & earning less than the cost to live (which I don’t think is true for anyone), then you need to change your actions. This is a scary realization because now we know the path isn’t laid out for us. We need to create our own path. You might have a limiting belief telling you how hard this will be and that you won’t succeed but if you followed step 1 then you will get over that quickly and continue to move forward.
STEP 3: Follow Your Heart NOT the System
Now that we know that success is different for us than it is for our parents we can move forward with figuring out where we belong in this world. What can we offer? This won’t come to you overnight but if you give it the attention it deserves you will eventually know what you are here for. What are your strengths & interests? What are you good at? How can you make our society a better place to live? You were not put on this unexplainable Earth with an unexplainable body and mind to sit at a desk all day and do meaningless work that may or may not be helping anybody but the CEO buy his 3rd yacht and beach house in Fiji. You simply were not made for that. Find what you were made for and work deeper into that, discovering how you can make a living from it, keeping people at the top of your motives. Even if you are working a job right now that you don’t like but you have no choice because you need income, still find your passion and work on it. This will take you farther than anything else. Find yourself.
STEP 4: Take Action
Make a plan and stick to it. You know what you want to do and where you want to be, so how do you get there? Research people who have come before you and were successful. Follow their systems. Do what they did and then make it your own. DO SOMETHING! Because it isn’t risky going out on a limb to follow your dreams, it’s risky to not doing anything and then wishing you did. Fail and fail hard but NEVER give up. Keep dreaming and doing and you will be successful.
