If you look around you will see there are only a handful of self-made millionaires for every hundred people. And those self-made millionaires seem to be in perpetual motion. They always seem to be coming and going from somewhere: seminars, speaking engagements, meetings, training, events, etc. You’ll also notice they’re usually not alone. They seem to always have people orbiting around them: members of their team, business associates, advisors, etc.
Their motion is the byproduct of the pursuit of a plan. Self-made millionaires are perpetually in motion, along with members of their team, because they are pursuing some plan.
One of the trademarks of unsuccessful people is that they have no plan and no direction in life. They are literally like leaves blowing in the wind on a fall day. When you lack direction, when you don’t have a plan you are following, you have no way to know what action you should be taking to help move you forward and become successful.
Having a plan means pursuing your dreams and the goals behind each one of those dreams.
Find some time today to script out your ideal future life. Bullet point each one of the dreams that are in your script. Then sleep on it. Your old brain (your subconscious) will immediately go to work, while you sleep, trying to help you get from point A (where you are now) to point B (your ideal future life). Keep reading your script every night, right before you go to sleep. Your old brain will start to communicate with your new brain (your conscious). This communication will come to you in the form of intuition. Through intuition or gut feelings, your old brain will begin feeding you with ideas and solutions.
The more you focus on your ideal future life, the more ideas and solutions you’ll be fed. These ideas and solutions are the actions you will need to take in order to realize your dreams. These actions will almost always be new goals you need to achieve in order to transform each one of your dreams a reality. Your old brain will tell your new brain exactly what those goals need to be.
