Season 2 Finale – The 1st Key – Dream Big
How much time have actually spent in the last week thinking about what you want? Specifically, 10 years from now, if you could have anything you wanted, what would it be? Take a piece of paper or page in your journal and write out your top 50 things if you won the lottery tomorrow. If money was no object what would you buy? And be specific. Where do you want to go? What do you want to do? Where would you live? What’s inside your perfect house? What kind of car? What make, model, color? Write them down. Each and every one. Take your time. Don’t move on to the next step until you have at least 50. You can have more, but not less. List them individually on a single line. What many of you may come to realize is that you don’t have 50. This was as easy as you thought it would be. Good. That means you are not a completely self-absorbed materialistic narcissist.
Now, go deeper. Think about what moves you? What inspires you? What do you want to be involved in? What kind of work do you find meaningful and rewarding? What level of authority and responsibility do you want to command? What standard of living? What kind of friends do you want to have? What kind of life do you want to have? What will you do when your children are grown and gone? What does an ideal everyday look like 10 years from now? What would you do if you didn’t have to do anything?
So that is the first exercise, every night when you are struggling for sleep or wake up and can’t go back to sleep. Think about all the things you would like to have. You are perfectly welcome to change and add to the list. This exercise will allow you brain activity but useful, purposeful activity. Instead of just a disorganized bunch of random thoughts.
Next, once you have your 50 things. Take a look at the list and reflect. Think about each item. Will they all take 10 years to get? Sure maybe the beach house in the Caribbean is 10 years out, but what’s on that list could you get next year. If you started planning and saving now, what items could you get in 3 or 5 years? Write down a 1, 3, 5, or 10 by each item on the list and tally them up.
Now, How could you go about getting these? Allow your mind to explore the possibility of having these things. Again guiding your thoughts. What are some unconventional ways you could get things you want? Once you have the vision of what you want your subconscious will begin to take over and find answers to these questions. For the next 30 days, each night begin by requesting answers to these types of questions. Write them down each night before you go to bed. Keep your journal or paper close to your bed so as additional thoughts occur you can write them down. Then as you lie down to sleep allow your mind to drift. Imagine how you will have these things. Think about who you know that can help you get what you desire? Who is doing what you want to do? Who is living a life similar to the one you’ve envisioned. How can you make that your reality? As you fade into sleep your Subconscious will create the scenarios necessary to realize these dreams. Your deeper self, that involuntary part of your mind, will begin to work it out. If you make this a common practice, you will quickly be amazed at the revelations you will receive. The impossible will become possible. The impregnable will begin to crack and crumble. The unlikely will soon become inevitable. These wishes and dreams will begin to manifest themselves unto you. There’s an old expression that says a man can move mountains and it’s based on one of my favorite scripture verses. “Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea, and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” Mark 11:23.
Believe it or not, you too can move mountains. By following this process you will crystalize your vision on the future and what you want it to hold for you. And in the process of realizing your dream, you will inspire many along the way. How will you be known? How you will be remembered? This is the first Key to a new, more fulfilling, and compelling life. This is the beginning. Give it a try. The next key is creating your blueprint. how to layout specific goals so you can actually do the work necessary to get there. Stay tuned, Thanks for listening, talk to you soon.
