Well? What do you want to be when you grow up? I ask this question to everyone no matter how young or old. It really catches people off guard.
About 10% really KNOW and can tell me without hesitation. Most laugh as their eyes look away. They are uncomfortable or worse they are ashamed or even saddened.
Most adults long gave up the thought of living their dreams or living a life of design. They say things like “I live in the REAL world” or “I’m an adult, I am GROWN up”
The heart of the question is really “Where does your passion lie” or “what do you REALLY want to do with your life”?
And the sad truth is:
1. Most don’t know
2. More just don’t think it’s reasonable to live their passions
Either way they lose and we all lose because we (the world) don’t get the benefit of these amazing people fully contributing to humanity on the level they were created to participate on.
So…may I ask you? “What do you want to be when you grow up?”
Are you running after it?
So many people get caught up in the status quo of working 5 days a week and paying bills. They expend so much energy just trying to maintain the basics of life that they have no energy left to pursue their dreams and passions.
The first step in changing this is to realize:
1. Yes you CAN attain your dreams
2. It will take intense focus and intense work!
But the time is going to go by anyway so ask yourself is the pain of suffering through a status quo life worse than the pain of putting in the extra effort and moonlighting on your job or working double time on your home business or your dreams?
As a full time entrepreneur for the past 17 years I can honestly say it hasn’t been easy but it HAS been worth it!
One of my favorite quotes is “there is nothing more powerful than a made up mind”
Once you make your mind up you will see reality bend to your will. I’m not talking new age mumbo jumbo. I’m talking about making a simple decision and then putting every ounce of passion, drive, focus and energy into creating a life of design.
I hope today’s talk gives you clarity and inspires you.
