Do you have a big bold goal that you have always wanted to achieve? On the heels of the year we had in 2020, it would seem invincible. For 25+ years, I have been training my clients to perfect their intelligence, I have learned that many people want more but are afraid to get it!
I’m talking about successful people. You already have the job you were looking for. Of course, you have a corner office, title, and cost account. You have everything but you feel like something is missing. However, because you have already succeeded, you feel guilty for wanting more. Does that sound familiar?
I can tell you that the reason you have this thunderstorm in your stomach is because you are done where you are. Your history or resume is complete so it’s time to let it go and fix what you’ve accomplished! Yes, there is MORE you can do!
The sad truth is that most people believe that following that thunder in your stomach, which is tied to your purpose in a way, belongs to a select few. They spend their days in work full-time, focusing on rising through the ranks of companies or pursuing higher incomes rather than following the inner turmoil that their heart desires! Yes, if you are ready for 2021 to be the year you go after your big and bold dream, here are three steps that will help you achieve that.
- Be Afraid to Be Afraid!
What I hear from most people about the following is that they are scared. They fear that somehow they may not be able to achieve the same results as they did. At that point, I say that whatever you do good will be intimidating! Ask Ava DuVernay, a young Compton girl who achieved one unbeatable goal of becoming a Hollywood celebrity. Leaving that job he will follow MORE and follow his real passion for director.
Let me tell you – if you have already succeeded, many times, that is the SUCCESS that is in your way. You see, the ranks you’ve climbed to where you are can keep you ” enough, ‘if you let it. Understand that feeling fear is a normal part of the process. YOURSELF is a new place you have never been to before, so as a result, it will scare you.
Just do not let that fear paralyze you in your efforts to reach your goals. Your comfort zone can keep you in the most predictable places. Indeed, your place of comfort is where dreams will die! So do not settle for less by choosing what you can do with what you can afford. Let your fears and expectations know and understand everything; accept that you may need to make # 2.

- Get Help!
When you plan a journey you have never been to before, there are some things you will never know how to do, no matter how smart you are! So, try to find everything yourself and find someone who will help you move your vision forward.
Yes, you may have enough talent to do this new thing but do you know the strategy you need to use or how to develop it successfully? One of my favorite quotes is Bishop A.R. Bernard “The Tools You Used At This Level Are Not Enough Next,” so you should invest in a coach, class, etc.… that will give you the strategy you need to further your dream.
- Create a Winning Strategy
Frequently, panic and / or fear comes in because you work outside the system. And when you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Instead, creating a strategy will ensure that you are on the path to success. A long-term action plan is designed to achieve a specific goal or set of goals. When you have a plan and something is different than expected, as it will always be, you can make the necessary changes. Instead of being completely abandoned. So YES, having an expert who understands the NEW path you are entering and helps you build a winning strategy is a MUST!
You may also wish to create your strategy into a watch board. The vision board is a collage of pictures, photographs, statements and / or affirmations of your dreams or all the things you believe in your life. Vision boards became popular years ago with the introduction of the Attraction Act, which is believed to be “as attractive as” and by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, one can bring about positive or negative consequences.
The idea is that by creating a watch board, you surround yourself with images of what you want and therefore, your life changes to attract those things you wish to come to you as you focus on them by creating a Vision Board. And it is a reminder of what you are working on and keeps you motivated to stay active to find it.
If 2021 is the year to be successful in your endeavors, stop looking for a shortcut to your own success; instead, use 1, 2 or all three steps I have set for you. I know for a fact that if you read this far away in this article, it’s because you know you want more. So now, all you have to do is take the right steps to get it!
