I was challenged to review my blog title and see if it needed to be revised or changed. I thought about it all day: Dream Big then Believe. That is exactly it! Not only is it the title line on my blog, it is the key to success!
Have you noticed how many people are making lots of money as motivational speakers or writing self development books? I have listened to many of the speakers and have read many of the books. There is something that is common to all – they are passionate, positive and dreamers. The speakers motivate you by getting you to dream big and believe that you can achieve your dreams. And it works! After listening to a good motivational speaker I believe I can achieve anything I set my mind to. Dreaming makes us happy, believing we can achieve our dreams motivates us and gives us energy. Unfortunately, there are obstacles along the way, there is a lot of negativity and there are setbacks. Over time, the positive attitude and belief in our abilities starts to fade away. Negativity takes over, we are less motivated, and we end up putting our dreams on the shelf.
Okay – get those dreams off the shelf and dust them off!
The key to success is belief!
- Really see your dream – picture it every night before you go to sleep, see yourself living your dream.
- Create a dream (or vision) board – post pictures of where you will live, what type of clothes you will wear, places you will travel things you will do. Whatever you dream of – put it where you can see it daily.
- Write down affirmations – positive sayings or goals and say them several times every day. Speaking words imprints on our subconscious. So speak up! Say those affirmations with belief, conviction and out loud!
- Remember – whether you think you can or you think you can’t . . .you are right! Speak positively and believe!
There you have it – build a dream so big and so strong that you cannot help but work toward it everyday. Please comment and let me know what you think or how this information helped you. I would love to hear your thoughts.
