There are 3 phases of Dreaming and creating your reality.
The first phase is Survival mode: Having an extra $200-$5000 month. In survival mode our dreams surround paying our bills and getting out of debt.
The second phase is Success mode: Having an extra $5000-$10,000. During this phase we have reached our primary goal of getting out of debt and can now enjoy the fruits of our labor. This is the phase when many people get rid of the J-O-B and continue working for themselves and have more time and money freedoms. Life is sweeter. You have gained confidence that You can be, do and have what ever you desire. You have more time to spend with those you love and the areas of your life you have had to neglect because of previous lack.
The Third phase is Significance mode: Having greater than $10,000 a month. Money is no longer a worry, Time is no longer a worry. Life is Awesome. At this phase you start looking outside yourself and your immediate family and move to helping others. Charity becomes a priority. Setting others up to move through the 3 phases becomes your Dream.
Ask yourself the hard questions. What phase am I in? What phase do I want to be in? How do I get there? Why have I continued in the first phase and not progressed? What is keeping me from attaining all that I hope and desire for?
Around the age of 20 most of us would say that our dreams were HUGE. We knew that we could conquer the world and nothing or no one was going to stop us. But then life happened and we lost our vision of our greatest dreams. Today we find ourselves with shrunken dreams because our income isn’t BIG enough for us to be, do or have what we want. We end up compromising. God would not give you a dream if there wasn’t a way to reach them.
Get absolutely clear on what you want in life. If you knew that anything was possible and you had all the money or means to reach your goal, what would it be?
On the other hand, what are the consequences of not achieving your goals/dreams?
Do you have a plan on how you are going to reach your dreams? Did you know that when Col. Sanders, of KFC, passed away he had a list of his goals in his pocket? He was 90 + when he passed over but he still knew what his goals/dreams were. He carried those goals/dreams as a way to remind himself of his purpose, his joy, his passion.
Take out 10 3×5 cards. Write your dreams and goals down, carry those with you everyday as a reminder. Your dreams and goals are only wishes until you give them life. Writing them down and reading them daily breathes life into them and intensifies your belief. Focus on your dreams and watch them come into your reality.
