Three steps you needed to hear to FINALLY start chasing your dreams
Ask yourself, "Is what I'm doing now helping me get to where I want to be?"
step 1: watch
What is the one thing that you kept thinking about over and over and over throughout that whole video? Do it. It’s not too late; I promise you.
For me, it’s traveling. I have some many places I want to see. I meet so many people at my job that have traveled around the world. The one thing I always ask them is, “Where is your favorite place in the world?” I look at them during that split second as they reflect on everywhere they’ve been and everything they’ve done and I think to myself, one day. One day I’ll have gone around the world and have my moment to pick my absolute favorite place. I’m only 27 years old & have a whole lifetime ahead of me.
step 2: make it your absolute #1 priority
Don’t expect your dream to just fall in your lap and come true. Nah, it doesn’t work that way. The most reliable way to predict the future is to create it yourself. So how do you do that? Prioritize & plan. Make it the absolute #1 priority thing that you are working towards in life. Because let’s be real, you didn’t get put on this earth to pay bills and die. In order for me to get to my dream of traveling around the world, I need to plan what I’m spending my paycheck on (live on the bare minimum), have a set dollar amount per paycheck to contribute to the travel fund (maximize this number to get there faster), and don't lose sight of where I want to be and what I want to be doing 5, 10, 20 years from now. Have a clear and concise timeline. Work aggressively towards this goal and you will be on your way in no time.
step 3: chase your dream
You’re one step closer to your dream. If this didn’t give you all the motivation in the world, I don’t know what to tell you. Follow your dreams, and change the world. Don’t wake up one morning and realize it’s your last. Don’t regret that one thing you always wanted to do but never did. Do it. Now. What’s stopping you?
