You deserve a reward, right? Seriously. You’ve earned it.
I’m not saying this because I’m in Gen Y and think everyone deserves a trophy (although you’re welcome to send me one via Facebook). You’ve earned a reward because you’re investing your own time to read, learn, be challenged and take risks to move forward. Most people aren’t like you.
Too many people would rather use their free time to watch talk shows about paternity tests, or scripted “reality” shows that are simply train-wreck TV. But you’re different. You’re reading this by choice. You’re choosing to invest in yourself, and that deserves a reward. I’m giving it to you.
Recognize the things that trap our dreams—and overcome them.
John C. Maxwell
A lot of us never see our dreams come true. Instead of soaring through the clouds, our dreams languish like a broken-down airplane confined to its hangar.
Through life, I have come to identify five common reasons why dreams don’t take flight:
1. We have been discouraged from dreaming by others.
We have to pilot our own dreams; we cannot entrust them to anyone else. People who aren’t following their own dreams resent us pursuing ours. Such people feel inadequate when we succeed, so they try to drag us down.
We all have two choices: We can make a living or we can design a life. Here’s how to do the latter.
The most important benefit of setting goals isn’t achieving your goal; it’s what you do and the person you become in order to achieve your goal that’s the real benefit.
Goal-setting is powerful because it provides focus. It shapes our dreams. It gives us the ability to hone in on the exact actions we need to perform to achieve everything we desire in life. Goals are great because they cause us to stretch and grow in ways that we never have before. In order to reach our goals, we must become better.
Entrepreneurs don't like to think about failure. We'd much rather focus on the positive. We're doing something most people consider weird and crazy—building businesses out of nothing—so we can't afford to let too much doubt and uncertainty cloud our visions.
That mindset, of course, is crucial to our success. But if our zeal makes us ignore the possibility of failure, then we're making a big mistake. The truth is if you choose an entrepreneurial life, there's a good chance you'll fail. The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation reports that just 46 percent of U.S. startups with employees survive through five years.
A guide for turning resistance into assistance—to keep everyone moving in the right direction
John C. Maxwell
Early in my career, I took over a volunteer-driven organization that had been led by the same man for 27 years. I respected the previous leader and admired a lot of the things he did.
But I knew that I was a different person and needed to do some things my own way. I recognized that the organization had become stuck on a plateau and realized that freeing it—as the new guy—would not be an easy task.
I began to implement changes immediately. But not everyone was on board. After about three months, a volunteer leader named Chuck pulled me aside and said, “John, you changed everything.Everything.” He was pretty upset.
