We all have had the “if I won the lottery” talk. Planning how we would spend the money; pay off debt, travel the world, move and buy the house of your dreams. It’s a common chat alot of us have. But no one realizes that those GOALS and DREAMS could become reality without having to win the lottery first.
The most important quality to have when chasing those goals and dreams is determination. The burning desire to do whatever it takes to get there. The willingness to step outside of your comfort zone to achieve the seemingly “impossible”. The ability to turn negative criticism into fuel to further push you toward your goal.
Want to know what kind of people wake every morning with that determination? Millionaires, CEO’s, small business owners, celebrities. Every single person you have seen rise to fame and the people who run the big corporations let their determination guide them to their goals and dreams and that’s why they are where they are.
And no one wakes with more determination than a small business owner. They have to compete with those same big corporations. They have to work with what they can because most of them finance their small business out of their own pocket. Take time to speak to a small business owner. There’s a good chance you know a few. Ask them why they started their small business. I can about guarantee their answers will include passion, financial blessing, family, and always being their dream. That’s why shopping small is so important!
Behind every success is a story of failure and determination. I’m sure they failed several times. Hardly ever does someone get their huge break the first time but they kept getting back up. They didn’t let the naysayers and negative Nancy’s of the world keep them from doing what they dreamed of doing. They didn’t let the dream drowners keep them from setting goals to get to their dream.
You do NOT need to have luck to match the correct order of random numbers to achieve the lottery dream. You can work with determination, set a detailed list of goals, and get up every time you fall to achieve the “lottery” dream. If you want it bad enough, you will find a way to get it. Could you imagine what the world would be like if every single person with a goal or dream woke every morning with the determination to achieve that goal or dream? Do NOT let the “lottery dream” escape your reality.
