how to reach your dreams faster

We are all looking for ways to hack life. Specifically, we are looking for ways to reach dreams quicker. The tips that are going to throw gasoline on our small fire and turn it into a roaring blaze.

Here are 4 ways to reach your dreams fasters:

1. Take consistent action

No matter what you learn, if it isn’t applied your dreams will always stay far off. Action on its own isn’t enough either. It must be a consistent plodding in a direction. There is something magical that happens when you take action consistently.

Action at first yields little to no result but within time if you stay consistent, action turns into momentum. Momentum is what will make your dreams happen at light speed. Stay consistent in action to produce a new momentum towards your dreams.

“In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.” – Tony Robbins

2. Be aware of your environment

If you aren’t where you want to be, chances are you are not in the right environment. To reach our dreams faster, we need to surround ourselves with others going in the same direction as us that expect excellence. Your environment will pull you down or lift you up. It will be the gas on the fire or the water putting the same fire out. Care for and grow your dream in the right environment to watch growth pick up steam.

 

3. Create a mastermind group

Collaboration, accountability, and creativity are all things that happen in a mastermind. A good mastermind is a meeting of people that bring little different skills to the table and are action takers that constantly discuss problems and victories in their dream chasing journey.

Your mastermind will help you to see a bigger dream. They will help speak life when it is needed and correction when you wander off the trail. Another benefit to a mastermind is you will begin to see the skill that you have that you didn’t know was there.

If you are consistently helping members solve a problem, that is an area of skill that has a market. Forming or joining a mastermind is a necessity to kick start your dreams at an accelerated rate.

 

4. Book/coaching

Learning from someone else’s experience will lower your time needed to reach your dreams. A coach or a good book can show you the action you need to take to get to the next level and save you energy from pointing you in the right direction.

A huge caveat to this tip is never stop taking consistent action. If you are reading or getting coaching, you must apply. It is easy to fall into the trap of always learning and being fat on information and malnourished on the action. Save yourself some time and learn from those that have gone before.

“All coaching is, is taking a player where he can’t take himself.” – Bill McCartney

Stop wasting time looking for a magic bullet and reach major milestones in your life by implementing these four keys. Will your dreams happen overnight? Of course not, but when you look back six months from now, you will be amazed at how far you have come.

Keep taking footsteps toward your dreams by taking consistent action, maintaining the right environment, joining a mastermind, and getting a boost from someone that’s been there. If you do these four things, you will reach your dreams much faster. Be blessed on the lifelong journey of dreaming big!

Have you ever sent a text message only to have it misinterpreted by the person reading it? Happens all the time. Have you ever given a presentation that you were totally prepared for only to have it fall flat? Happens all the time. Have you ever had someone ask you something like, “Why are you mad?” when you were not at all mad? Happens all the time. (more…)

The 3 Most Important Things I Learned About Personal Growth

When you look back on your life, what do you want to think about? Do you plan to reminisce on all of the good things that have happened and how they shaped who you are today? Or would you rather remember all of the bad decisions, challenging experiences, and mistakes made that hurt or wasted a portion of your life?

In my opinion, I think it is important to reflect on both. While it’s important to remember the hardships we’ve been through in our lives – without them we wouldn’t be where we are now. There are 3 very specific areas that I feel have helped me grow in a personal sense more than anything else in my life so far. 

These aren’t simple lessons in a book or a lecture that you can just absorb and apply to your life. These are things that I’ve learned through experience and reflection, and I’m still learning and growing today.

1. We determine how much we’re worth by what we think about ourselves, others, and life in general.

This might seem like a pretty obvious lesson in life but it’s actually one of the most important because we can determine our own worth by how we think about ourselves and the world around us. If you’re looking for success in any kind of business or social setting (dating), then I’ll tell you right now that it doesn’t matter if you have 10 billion dollars or not – people are still going to judge you based on your thoughts and beliefs alone.

What determines our value isn’t necessarily what we do with our lives (which is often based on luck) but whether or not we believe that ‘our work’ is worthy or not in some sort of grand scheme or universe. We may not always be able to control what happens in our lives, but we can always control how we value ourselves and others.

“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” – Maya Angelou

2. You don’t have to change your habits or personality just because someone else doesn’t like it – their opinions are THEIRS alone.

This is another one of those lessons that people tend to pick up on a little bit late in life, but if anything that makes its importance even worse! Basically, there’s going to come a time when you’re going to meet someone who has certain expectations of you as a person…but these expectations might not be realistic due to their motivations and personal beliefs. For example, sometimes parents might expect you to be a lawyer or doctor because that’s what they believe is best for their child.

However, this isn’t the case for everyone and so maybe your passion lies in music or writing novels. In this example, if you were also pressured into becoming a doctor – then there would obviously be some kind of conflict going on within yourself as a person. You should never have to give up something that you want to do just because someone else doesn’t like it! The reason why we’re put onto this Earth is to make our own choices and go after our OWN dreams instead of letting others determine what we can and cannot do with our lives .

3. You can’t change your life until you accept that you need to make a change.

When I was younger, I thought that this lesson would be pretty obvious – but as I got older, it really made me appreciate the fact that there are always different ways of perceiving our lives. For example, if someone wants to become rich and famous one day – their mind might simply overshadow any other possibility in their head because they feel like this is what they NEED to do right now.

However, this isn’t always true within our own lives because we think about things too literally instead of having an open mind. If you want to achieve success in any kind of business or social setting (dating) then you should be willing to try out different things instead of staying in your comfort zone. If you want something, then it’s up to YOU to actually go after it – nobody else is going to give it to you!

The three lessons above are some of the main things I want to pass on to everyone because they’ve come at an important time in my life where I need to start thinking about others instead of only myself. It’s great if we can learn to love ourselves first before anything else, but that doesn’t mean you should neglect everyone around you even though they might be your friends and family members!
