Success: Why People give up on their dreams?

How much did they pay you to give up on your dreams? And when were you going to stop and come back and do what makes you happy?

Most people give up on their dreams because they need money to make ends meet. 90% of the People don’t have the will or desire or simply they don’t want to put the big effort an energy that it takes to achieve those goals and make those dreams come true. 90% of the People prefer to sell their dreams and financial freedom for a wage. That is why 10% of the people have 90% of the wealth.

“Profits are better than wages. Wages make you a living, profits make you a fortune.” ~Jim Rohn

Work on yourself, study, practice and do whatever it takes to reach your dreams… that is if they are important to you.

Arnold Schwarzenegger three part success formula

Success is hard to achieve it takes a special individual and the right mind set to achieve success. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s three part success plan is comprised of :

  1. Hard work (Disciplined)
  2. Self Confidence
  3. Positive Attitude

Hard work: You need to work hard, but work hard on yourself (learn a new skill, read), work hard on the task list to achieve your goals. To accomplish great things it takes Discipline, time and patience. Have daily habits that will get you closer to achieving your goals. Success takes time, For Arnold it took more than 25 years of his life to be where he wanted to be. Don’t quit on your goals, be patient and persistent. You will achieve what you want in due time. Don’t give up in your dreams and goals.

Self Confidence: You need to believe in yourself. You have to have the Energy, the will. Trust yourself, commit to your goals.

Positive Attitude: Believe that you will achieve what you want, visualize. You will face problems, failures. You have to embrace these, learn from the problems and resolve them. Us humans learn more from the our failures than our successes.  Don’t wish for less problems, wish you were better.

Failure + Persistence = Success

Success: The Best Approach to Set Goals

Setting goals can be a big undertaking if you don’t know what you want, if yo don’t have the right mind set. It is very important to have big dreams, but dreams will NOT help you achieve what you want. You have to set clear goals and have a plan of action. You need to set short term goals (for the day, for the week, for the month) , long range goals. Eg. 1 Year Goals, 5 Year Goals, 10 Year Goals. One of the biggest mistakes made by people is that the grand majority of people work hard on their job, but hey work very little on themselves. This will never allow you to grow, to get what you want, you need to learn new skills, become more valuable to the market. If you work harder on yourself than on your job, you will acquire great wealth and knowledge.

Once you achieve a major goal, it is very important to celebrate, however if you miss a goal it is very important to feel the pain of not accomplishing it, make it painful, be accountable and take ownership. That will allow you to stride and learn from that failure.

The main 3 Categories that Jim Rohn used were:

  1. Economics: Income, business, profits, production. It plays a major role in everyone-s life. that is the reason it needs to be meticulously planned.
  2. Things: Make a list of the things you want.
  3. Personal Development: Be stronger, more decisive, be a leader, learn a language, all kinds of skills.

There is a simple formula to achieve your goals:

  1. Work on your goals: Yo have to work on a daily basis to achieve these. It does not matter how little the task is, it will get you closer to achieving your goal. Work hard on yourself.
  2. Write your goals down: It has been proven that if your write down your goals you will be most likely yo achieve them. If you write them down it is way to review them and study yourself at a later time. Once you write your goals down it shows you are serious about doing better.
  3. Check the size and the kinds of goals: How big they are and what kind they are affects you. It affects your attitude, the way you dress, your personality, the way you talk, etc.

Sylveter Stalone – Once Homeless… His Success Story

Stallon_Final_Web

Back in the day, Stallone was a struggling actor in every definition. At some point, he got so broke that he stole his wife’s jewelry and sold it. Things got so bad that he even ended up homeless. Yes, he slept at the New York bus station for 3 days. Unable to pay rent or afford food. His lowest point came when he tried to sell his dog at the liquor store to any stranger. He didn’t have money to feed the dog anymore. He sold it at $25 only. He says he walked away crying.

Two weeks later, he saw a boxing match between Mohammed Ali and Chuck Wepner and that match gave him the inspiration to write the script for the famous movie, ROCKY. He wrote the script for 20 hours! He tried to sell it and got an offer for $125,000 for the script. But he had just ONE REQUEST. He wanted to STAR in the movie. He wanted to be the MAIN ACTOR, Rocky himself. But the studio said NO. They wanted a REAL STAR.

They said he “Looked funny and talked funny”. He left with his script. A few weeks later, the studio offered him $250,000 for the script. He refused. They even offered $350,000. He still refused. They wanted his movie, but NOT him. He said NO. He had to be IN THAT MOVIE.

After a while, the studio agreed, gave him $35,000 for the script and let him star in it! The rest is history! The movie won Best Picture, Best Directing and Best Film Editing at the prestigious Oscar Awards. He was even nominated for BEST ACTOR! The Movie ROCKY was even inducted into the American National Film Registry as one of the greatest movies ever!

And do you know the first thing he bought with the $35,000? THE DOG HE SOLD. Yes, Stallone LOVED HIS DOG SO MUCH that he stood at the liquor store for 3 days waiting for the man he sold his dog to. And on the 3rd day, he saw the man coming with the dog. Stallone explained why he sold the dog and begged for the dog back. The man refused. Stallone offered him $100. The man refused. He offered him $500. And the guy refused. Yes, he refused even $1000. And, Believe it or Not, Stallone had to pay $15,000 for the same dog he sold at $25 only! And he finally got his dog back!

And today, the same Stallone who slept in the streets and sold his dog JUST BECAUSE he couldn’t even feed it anymore, is one of the GREATEST Movie Stars who ever walked the Earth!

BUT NEVER ALLOW CIRCUMSTANCES AND PEOPLE CRUSH THAT DREAM or GOAL. Whatever happens to You, Keep Dreaming. Even when they crush your hopes, Keep Dreaming. Even when they turn you away, Keep Dreaming. Even when they shut you down, Keep Dreaming.

NO ONE KNOWS WHAT YOU ARE CAPABLE OF EXCEPT YOURSELF! People will judge you by HOW you look. And by WHAT you have. But Fight on! Fight for Your place in history. Fight for your glory. NEVER EVER GIVE UP!

Even if it means selling all your clothes and sleeping with the dogs, IT’S OKAY! But AS LONG AS YOU ARE STILL ALIVE, Your STORY IS NOT OVER.

Keep Up the Fight. Keep Moving Forward. Set Clear Goals. Make a Plan. Take Action… GO GET THEM !!!

Life is tough. Opportunities will pass you by, just because you are a NOBODY. People will want your products but NOT YOU. Its a tough world. If you ain’t already famous or rich or “connected”, you will find it rough.

Doors will be shut on you. People will steal your glory and crash your hopes. You will push and push. And yet NOTHING WILL HAPPEN.

And then your hopes will be crashed. You will be broke. Damn broke. You will do odd jobs for survival. You will be unable to feed yourself. And yes, you may end up sleeping in the streets. It happens. Yes, it does.

BUT NEVER ALLOW CIRCUMSTANCES AND PEOPLE CRUSH THAT DREAM or GOAL. Whatever happens to You, Keep Dreaming. Even when they crush your hopes, Keep Dreaming. Even when they turn you away, Keep Dreaming. Even when they shut you down, Keep Dreaming.

NO ONE KNOWS WHAT YOU ARE CAPABLE OF EXCEPT YOURSELF! People will judge you by HOW you look. And by WHAT you have. But Fight on! Fight for Your place in history. Fight for your glory. NEVER EVER GIVE UP!

Success: What It Takes To Achieve Your Goals

 

Achieving your goals is not easy and you can attest to that. It is easy to get side tracked or unmotivated. Life is going to throw punches at you, you will have to jump through hurdles, overcome adversity. In this situations you need to stay strong. I will borrow a line from rocky 6. I”It doesn’t matter how hard you get hit, but how hard you can get hit and keep pushing forward.”  

OVERCOME YOUR FEARS !!! Keep Pushing Forward, no one else is going to do it for you. You have what it takes to WIN and live the life that you want.  Until you start believing in yourself you won’t have the life you want for yourself and family.

“It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!”  – Sylvester Stalone.

Success: Steps To Achieving Your Goals

Setting goals is one thing, but doing what it takes to achieve them is another. In order to achieve them you need to discipline yourself to set clear goals and then work towards them everyday, that will guarantee more success than any other single factor. You can not hit a target that you can’t see and you can’t definitely not hit a target that you don’t even have.  Do you realize that one 3% of adults have written down their goals and that this 3% earns more than the other 97% combined. People think they have goals, but all they have is hopes and wishes. Hope is not a strategy for success and a wish has no energy behind it.

 These are the steps to achieve your goals

  1. Set clear goals.  (the S.M.A.R.T goal approach is one of the best ways)
  2. Be clear about your goals.
  3. Write down your goals.
  4. Work on them everyday.

Have you ever wondered why you miss some personal or even professional goals? Appropriate goal setting is key to achieving what you want. Without a goal their is no target to hit.

Wrong Way to Set Goals

Most people don’t know how to set goal, they are either vague or not specific enough. These are some examples of goals that people usually set:

  1. I am going to lose weight.
  2. I am getting a better job.
  3. I want to earn more money.

These goal examples won’t help the person achieve what he/she really wants. It is not specific enough, it has no way no measure it, they are not time bound.

How to Set S.M.A.R.T Goals

Use the following to set your S.M.A.R.T goals.

S: Specific. Be very specific of what you want..
M: Measurable. You need to measure your goal.
A: Attainable Something that you know you will achieve.
R: Realistic. Make it real, no fiction.
T : Time bound. You need to specify a due date.

Examples of S.M.A.R.T Goals

  1. I want to lose 20 pounds in two months.
  2. I want to be a senior executive in the finance department in 2 years.
  3. By the end of 2017 my income will be of $200,000.00 Tax Free.
