It is also explained in a much detailed manner in my book Welcome To You20.0. Here is a six step guide on how to find your Magic and be Limitless in 2018.
#1. Stop Fooling Yourself by Giving Excuses or Blaming Others: Acceptance
Do you have Mr. Right syndrome? List down the key reasons why some of the most important things have gone wrong in your life. For every failure, if you are always successful in passing the blame to someone or something that was not in your control, you have Mr. Right syndrome. It means, I’m always right and others are the reason for my failures.
What happens when you miss going for exercise or reach late to work or unable to start your dream journey or you have a souring relationship? The successful excuses you make or the blame you transfer to others pulls you into a pseudo comfort zone. It makes you Mr. Right but creates a trap that makes you feel good in the short term and robs you of a bright future in the long run.
You have all the resources you need and you have the ability to create the resources that you ever need for success. The above statement is a very empowering coaching principle. The First Step to achieving your dreams is to stop fooling yourself and get real.
#2. Believe the science of Achievement: Law of Attraction
All the great achievers have a common answer to the question “What’s the secret of your success?” Their answer, apart from many other things, is always “an unshakable belief in my vision”. This formula of success, also called as the famous Law of Attraction, is an open secret now, known to everyone but works only for those who believe in it. The real truth is whether you believe in it or not, it always works.
Believing in the Law of Attraction is an important step in your journey to your biggest dreams. The law states that you are a magnate and you attract everything in your life. The universe is constantly listening and responding to your wishes. What you have and what you are today is also a result of the law of attraction and it will further shape up your future. However, if you understand the law of attraction and believe in it, you can use it to your advantage. Just like gravity always existed but when Newton discovered it from a different point of view, science was able to create many instruments that use the law of gravity. A strong belief in the Law of attraction takes you forward into your dream journey.
#3. Know what you want: Dreams and Goals
It’s very interesting to see that a lot of high potential people reach nowhere in life just because they don’t know where they wanted to go. They live default life, which means that they take life one day at a time and face the day as things come to them.
The greatest favor you can do to yourself is to list down what all you want from life. It’s your life and you have the right to live a life by design and not by default. The real life begins when you know what all you want to achieve. Listing down your own dreams itself is a self discovery process. Grab a pen and paper and list down at least 20 dreams. You will be surprised knowing yourself a little more. You can use the COMPELS process from my book Welcome To You20.0 or my Youtube Video to write down your dreams.
Once you complete this important step of listing down what you want to achieve, new possibilities and avenues open up for you to achieve the same. Your dream could be to reduce 15 kgs of weight or buy a dream house or a dream car, it could even be to be the best parent or become the prime minister of the country. Once you list it down, the universe is not only listening but also responding.
#4. Take Complete Ownership of your dreams: CEO
One of the real reasons the law of attraction does not work for some people is that they do not take a non negotiable ownership of their vision. How many people really care about your dreams? You will be lucky if you can find even two such people. When no one even cares about your dream, how can you expect someone to own your dream? One of the biggest mistakes people make is to believe that someone is there to take care.
Your dream is your own responsibility. You are the only CEO of your vision to start with. Once you enroll people into your vision and relate it to their own vision, it might become their vision too. That’s how some companies get committed employees and leaders get ardent followers.
The CEO mindset enables you to think that the buck starts at you and it stops at you. It empowers you to pursue your dreams with enthusiasm in a non negotiable manner. You may have one or more dreams but you are the CEO of all of them and you can achieve all of those together. All you need to do is BE THE CEO OF YOUR VISION. CEO mindset is the most important step in your journey towards being limitless.
#5. Do Whatever It Takes: Action
Most people have a fear of the unknown and hence they repeat the same activities that they are used to of doing, even if they are painful. The funny thing is that they expect different result while repeating the same activity.
If you want to achieve what you have never achieved before and become extra ordinary, you must be excited to do things that you have never done before. Many successful employees turned entrepreneurs started their new journey by sweeping the floor of their office and travelling by train or economy class in a budget airlines even though they were used to of business class travel in a premium airlines and entering a best view cabin in a world class office full of serving staff.
You should feel proud in doing whatever it takes to achieve your dreams. Action develops understanding and moves you forward. Action supersedes any number of books you read or motivation you receive or even the Universities you attend. You may feel that people are watching you but they don’t matter. Why bother about people who don’t even care about you or your dream?
Every day, your action should take you closer to your Dreams or it will introduce you to new challenges on your way. Either way, you are making a positive progress. Once you know your dream and take a step in that direction even if it’s an unfamiliar territory, you are differentiating yourself from the crowd and discovering your new version. Even a journey of a thousand miles also starts with a first step. That’s what eventually gives you the edge and introduce you to You20.0.
#6. Always Care and must Share: Team Player
Your Dream may appear selfish and there is nothing wrong in making it a starting point. After all, it gives you the motivation to take those first steps forward with enthusiasm.
However, if your vision is really grand, it’s not possible to complete it alone. A thousand mile journey may start with you alone taking the first step, by the time you complete it, there will be a complete caravan. A larger purpose always finds like-minded people. You must be excited about sharing your vision with others and explore possibilities of finding their purpose in the same. You will do it if you really care for others. Every achiever has done so by finding the right team on their way.
Ironically, the journey of sharing and caring is also full of challenges. Not everyone is aligned to your vision and some people even doubt your intentions when you care. However, it should not dishearten you, the people you need really exist. Your dream team will be there, every person around you has the potential to convert your dreams into reality. You must be focused on your mission with a heart full of love and care for others and full of belief for your dreams.
A genuine intent to work with people and helping them achieve their dreams is a key step in your own journey to achieving your own dreams. The world belong to those who share and care at the same time.
People make excuses and blame others for their non-achievements. You have the choice to be an Achiever and be the reason for that achievement. That’s the difference between winners and losers. Let the New Year be your Reason to begin a new chapter of your life and follow the simple steps to be an Achiever.
Knowing is Not Doing, Doing is Doing, If Knowing Were Doing, Everyone Would be Limitless
