I say it often, but I truly do believe it: dreams do come true for people just like you. The problem for most people when it comes to the whole dream thing is that people often forget that dreams only work when you go to work. Simply put, we must continue moving toward our dreams if we want them to actualize.
Here are three things you can do right now to keep your dream alive:
1. LEARN - Study other people who have achieve great things--people who have added a significant amount of value to others. Learning from the experience of those who have been there, done that, so to speak, can potentially expedite your growth.
2. MOVE - Make a decision to do something each day (no matter how big or small) that moves you closer to your dream. Never underestimate what can happen for you when you take consistent action. This consistency will develop winning habits.
3. CELEBRATE - Big dreams often take longer than you anticipated and cost you more than you thought you'd pay. That said, take time to celebrate your small wins along the way to hep stay positive. These small wins add up, which helps create momentum.
I don't know what your dream is, but if it's something you are chasing after for the right reasons and with the right motivation, I believe you CAN achieve it. And if you decide to remain a humble student (learn), work hard daily (move), and stay positive (celebrate), you will give yourself a much better shot of seeing that dream through. Whatever you do, DO NOT QUIT!
Love you guys. Let's grow.
Right Standing Instead Of Right
One of the most frustrating aspects of leadership is knowing that no matter what you say or do, you will not be able to please everyone. If you're a true leader, you don't mind being vulnerable enough to admit that on some level, this truth stings.
Instead of allowing this emotionally taxing aspect of leadership to weigh you down, shift your focus to being in right standing with people. When this is your goal, people can know that although they may not agree with all of your decisions, they can trust that your decisions are made for the right reasons with the right motivation. In other words, they will be able to tell over time that you have their best interest at heart.
When people know you truly do have their best interest at heart, they are more apt to support you and work with you. This happens because they respect you. That's what right standing is all about--being able to show respect regardless of who is right. And every leader wants this to be part of the fabric of the culture in their organization.
Love you guys. Let's grow.
