Whether you identify as a “dreamer” or not, you likely have things you want to accomplish someday – things you have yet to experience in life. Those, my friend, are dreams. And today, I give you some tough love + truth about achieving said dreams.
If you didn’t appreciate the process before this entry, you better be entertaining it by the end. So let’s just get after it.
What if I told you it would take you four years to achieve your dream?
Not even the big dream. Just the start. To be self employed online? Or build your dream home? To travel the world? Or start a family?
Years of consistency.
Years with failures.
Years of learning.
Years with unknowns.
And years of progress.
Would you still be willing to commit? Or are you counting on a fast track to success?
Long haul mentality – Daily grind mentality. Actually enjoying this process. And the grit. The willingness to keep going when you’re unsure. When it’s not unicorns and butterflies. To be steadfast. To celebrate every small win while brushing off the shit storms. Are you here for that?
Because I need you to be. And more importantly, YOU need you to be. Dreams, goals, visions. They don’t just happen. Even if you believe in manifestation or prayer, these things require ACTION. And likely action for longer than you might be expecting.
Remember that it’s not years of being where you are NOW, and then arriving at your dream. It’s *possibly* a multi-year journey with plenty of wins along the way. It took me 3.5 years to go fully online, being self employed as a remote strength coach. It took us 9 months to plan and begin traveling the world. We are currently two years into our journey of buying land and building our dream home. And that’s after nine years of marriage.
Action, action, action. day after day, month after month. That’s how you achieve your dreams. I know it sounds simple, and cliche, but it is also the truth.
It might take you less, might take you more. But it ain’t happenin’ overnight. Keep going. Your dream quite literally depends on it.
