I am not going to lie. I wanted the American Dream when I was growing up.
American Dream = Get married + Have kids + Great house +Host friends + Have a great job + Live Happily Ever After.
Did you have this dream too? Maybe. Maybe Not. I soon realized that the American Dream was doomed, at least for me. And I am sure you would not be here reading this, if you were living the American Dream.
Let me ask you this.
Do you often wake up mad because it is 6 in the morning becauseyou do not want to go to work? Yet you feel like you have no choice?
Don’t you despise that feeling?
What if you got up at 6AM because you wanted to? Without thepain of knowing someone controls you.
Ok Sang. That is different. I want that freedom. I want that luxury.So what is stopping you?
F E A R is.
What are you afraid of?
Here are FIVE reasons I think you are afraid:
Insecurity.Imagine being at a conference and you are taking notes from a GREATspeaker. You want to be like them. Yousee yourself doing what they are doing. Yet you question yourself.
Can I talk like that person? Can I be like this?You are going to be bad before you are good and good before you are better andbetter before you are the best.
I believe in life, when you get out of your comfort zone,you gain a new comfort level. This isnormal.
Step up and do it anyway – you will amaze yourself. Do not look at a shortcoming as a reason NOTto do something, you can grow into anything
You think you do not have the personality to do your ownthing. If you say it, then it is thetruth. Bottom Line.
Let’s go back to the speaker. This person is so bubbly. Fullof life. Smiles all the time.
Why do you think that is?
Because they love what they are doing. So LOVE what you are doing = Personality.
But here is something else hidden here. No what personality type you have, enough isenough and you have to decide to come out the shell you are buried in. You stop. Look around. And you decided thatit is time to turn this around, because you are not where you want to be. Get past who you are not, and let go out thereand get it done.It’s ok to feel shy and reserved.
I don’t have time
ALWAYS. ALWAYS. ALWAYS. **Cough, Cough** An excuse.
I think this is insulting. Stop and ask yourself. Whatare you doing that you have the time for that you are not producing what youwant in life? Exactly.
Time is one of thosethings – that you find when you really want to accomplish something with verylittle time. Time is not the issue.
Time is the reason WHY you should be inbusiness for yourself. Are you lookingat all aspects of you and your business?
WHO IS NOT BUSY! Everyone is busy.
I can’t find the money
What if I said I would give you a brand new car if you cameup with $500 by the end of the night?
Tell me how quick you can find thatmoney? What makes sense as aninvestment, to change your life.
Never tell people you do not have the money.
Tell them you do not have enough ideas.
Tell people you are not creative enough to get the money.
Tell people you do not want it bad enough.
Be honest with yourself. YOU have to make a choice. YOU have to decide what is best for you and your family. YOU have a hugeopportunity on your hands. YOU know thatthe best is yet to come.
At the end of the day,you need to ask yourself – Will you stick to the course until it is complete? Do you want it bad enough or are you happy where you are?
