Turning Dreams Into Success
Do you dream of being successful, and have you thought about turning dreams into success?
Some might dream of getting a huge windfall, or dream of receiving a large inheritance, or maybe you dream of that big lottery win? If you have, then you have probably thought about what you would do with all that money. Obviously you’d want to spend some of it on making your life and your family’s life better. What would you do with the rest? Give some to charity and invest the balance?
How would you invest the money? As we all know money makes money. Do you daydream of creating a very successful business with a guaranteed income stream?
Did you know daydreaming can be healthy?
How Daydreaming can be Healthy
Studies have shown that by daydreaming and with your mind wandering this enhances creativity in the brain.
According to a study done by Dr. Thomas A. Langens, of University Wuppertal, Germany, and from an extract published in Sage Journal. http://ica.sagepub.com/content/22/2/103.abstract, research has shown that conceptions of a desirable future, seem to have a stronger motivational impact on individuals high in achievement motivation.
Therefore, it was assumed that daydreaming mediates between goal commitment and goal attainment in individuals high (but not in those low) in achievement motivation.
Other studies have shown that by spending a few minutes each day, daydreaming (we are talking reality here not fantasizing), test subjects were able to come up with multiple ideas on how to make better use and other uses of everyday items commonly used in everyday life.
The Lottery Mentality
As you know, the likelihood of some daydreams becoming real are a billion to one. Many get caught up thinking their day will come, and that’s where it stops.
Do you want to make those dreams real and have you considered the many options you have?
Make those dreams work for you
Channel that energy into starting a business as an entrepreneur. A business can be an expression of you. Don’t let it be a barrier. Believe in your dreams.
A business is a place you can aspire to achieve your dreams. How?
A business can give you independence, a growing income, more time and importantly self-satisfaction and achievement.
To make your dreams become reality, set some goals.
Setting goals is a surefire way of helping your dreams come to life and will close that gap getting you to success fast.
Set a goal of building relationships, good strong relationships in business are a must. Relationships can give you a lifeline for support, help you gain knowledge, and even help build a customer/client base.
Make a Plan
Write down your goals, how you want to reach them and any foreseeable obstacles that may come up, and importantly how to deal with them.
When starting out in business we can easily become overwhelmed, and tough decisions, are often required.
At times, when we come to a fork in the road, do we go right or do we go left? It is at this time that many new entrepreneurs give up, and they get off the road.
Often we don’t know what the right or wrong choice is. Making a choice will keep you moving forward, not making a decision is a decision to fail. There is never a wrong decision; the action from the decision may need tweaking, and any hiccups will soon be ironed out.
Make a decision now to commit, and realise your dreams.
