This weekend, I listened to two different audio books while I painted and drew. One was Grant Cardone’s 10X; the other was Barack Obama’s new book – A Promised Land.
Although both books are very different, each author sets goals far above and beyond the limitations of most people. Their example has re-inspired me to elevate my own goals.
Another thing these men have in common is that each of their dreams required a lot more work than they expected. This is an important point. Dreaming big is key – but so is a willingness to work harder and longer than the average person.
We are capable of so much more than we think we are. We have more time than we think we do. We have more energy than we think we do – as long as we have a goal that’s worth the effort.
At the same time, negativity is contagious. Most people are fearful, limited in their vision, are mired in conventional thinking, and are intimidated by anything out of the norm. So I keep my real dreams and goals to myself. Sharing them with the average person would only elicit disbelief, cautionary tales, nay-saying, and other mental garbage.
Doing is better than talking anyway! Anything is possible with the right amount of effort and mental focus.
Have a creative week – and don’t forget to think big!
