I recently had the honor and pleasure of delivering a TEDx talk that has been viewed by thousands of people. Most 21 year old kids can’t say that about themselves, but I was blessed with this opportunity solely because I chose to pursue my dreams.
However, chasing my dreams hasn’t always been easy. There have been certain experiences and lessons through my entrepreneurial journey that have taught me a lot. These outcomes most specifically have motivated me to stay the course and pursue my dreams.
In this article, I’m going to share 3 principles that will make your dreams come true:
1. It Starts With Action
I quickly realized that a billion dollar idea was worth nothing as long as it remained an idea. No matter what your wildest dreams are, it is impossible to achieve it unless you do something about it. As an entrepreneur, I have to take massive action with everything I do so that I can achieve my dreams.
2. It Helps To Think Powerfully
What you believe is truly what you achieve. If you don’t believe that you will achieve your dreams, you won’t be able to do it. The thoughts we manifest are extremely important to our success in life. Stop thinking negative and bringing yourself down. It’s not a healthy way to live and it will surely limit your odds of success.
3. It Ends With Persistence
I hit roadblocks, made many mistakes and even failed quite a bit along the way. However, I am able to say that I have achieved quite a few of my dreams because I got back up. You’re only a failure if you refuse to get back up when times get tough. Embrace failure and learn from your experiences. Get back up and keep trying because anything worth having doesn’t come easy.
As you can see, these 3 principles helped me greatly when it came to achieving my dreams. If you have a big vision or dream, follow this simple three step approach to guide you.
