Four years ago when I was still in corporate I had a dream that people told me was impossible. That dream was, never ask somebody for a vacation. It didn’t seem possible but what’s amazing is that four years later I can write to you while traveling. It hasn’t been easy and that’s why I want to remind you that your dream is not impossible regardless of what people are saying.
- Have an overwhelmingly convincing why.
An uninspiring vision is not going to motivate you to get through the hard times. Imagine if Martin Luther King stood in front of his people and said, “I have all the operational processes and financial commitment from our stakeholders we need to end slavery.”
People would be asleep! Instead he said, “I have a dream that all the people of this country will be equal.” That’s what people bought into.
The operations and financials are important but they don’t make you so hungry that you won’t stop breathing until you’ve achieved it.
- Make your dream crystal clear because that’ll drive you when you feel weary.
A friend who’s financially free three times over told me, “On your own you can do amazing things but in a team you can achieve the impossible.”
I’m now leveraging his 10-15 years of experience. Instead of making the mistakes, I’m speeding up the process.
- Get a coach and the right team.
You never take advice from a bald man on how to grow hair. So get advice from someone living the lifestyle you want to be living.
Without a good coach or team, Lionel Messi would still be skillful but ten times less effective.
- Be kind to yourself.
This journey isn’t easy, but it’s worth it.
I had to break up with a girl I really liked because we didn’t share the same dream. That was really hard.
I’m never going to tell you the dream is easy. You have to make sacrifices. You’ll have to let go of the wrong people so that the right people can come into your life.
Keep on changing the game.
