Position Yourself for opportunities

You have to have a dream before you can be successful. I encourage EVERYONE to “Pick a Dream…and GO FOR IT!

However, frustration can set in when you do not achieve your goals when you want to achieve them. To offset the frustration, you should work on getting into a position where you can actually receive the blessings you are about to receive.

What is John writing about now? I hear you. Let me give you an example. Let’s say that I want to buy a house in the future. I have to get myself into a position to be able to purchase a house. I have to have a certain credit score. I have to have a certain debt to income ratio, and I have to have the income. These are not my requirements. These are the bank’s requirements. Because the bank is the business that will permit me to purchase the house. You can say that I have to “play their game.”

Frustration has caused so many people to stop trying to reach their dreams. It does not have to be that way. My suggestion is to keep working, step by step towards your goal. If you want to be a professional basketball player, but you are only 15 years old, don’t fret. Practice. Practice your foul shot. Practice something that might be considered your weakness. An opportunity will come your way. In the mean time, practice.

If you want to a specialist in any field, you have to practice and learn. Opportunities are everywhere. But you have to make the effort first.

I wish success for everyone.

Pick a dream…and GO FOR IT!

John Lewis

Just decide to do something towards your dream…

I am here to tell you something. Just decide to do something towards your dream. Do you know why I say this? Because the longer you procrastinate, the more you are actually building an obstacle that will give you more excuses not to go for your dream. Just decide  to do something towards your dream. What do you really have to lose?

If you have a dream, you might have run the idea past your friends or your family. Maybe they were not so positive of it. What did you do after that? Did you think to yourself that you know you have a great idea? Or did you start to doubt yourself? And then you probably just sat on your idea, right? You might have even forgot about it.

Meanwhile your dream is still there. Waiting for you to put some action to it. It is your dream. No one in the entire universe will ever have the same exact dream as you. This explains that funny feeling that you get when you don’t do something towards your goal. A part of you knows what you should be doing.

When you work for an employer, do you know what you are doing? You are helping someone else achieve their dream. Yes, you get paid. You are actually exchanging your time, for money. This is why some people make more money than others. The person with the money, places a value on a particular job. That job helps the employer make more money for the employer. You might not make more money, until you show the employer that you can actually make more money-for the employer.

My advice to you is to keep working at your job. You need an income. There is no doubt about that. But I am sure you can find some time in the day to make a plan on how to make your dream come true. Eventually, you will start to make a little bit of money towards your dream. Then your life will change… I promise.

Just decide to do something towards your dream.

Pick a dream…and GO FOR IT!

Best of luck to you.

John
