I started to see the key things that can make your life so amazing you can’t even trust it’s all real. The following strategies come from the above people. They are the patterns I found when looking at their amazing lives.
1. Be Specific
I bet you constantly have a list of things you want to do in life running through your mind. I know I do: purchase an investment property property, live in Delhi, own a kayak, be able to do a chin up, my list goes on. And I’m sure yours does too.
We all have things we want to do but just can’t seem to ever get around to actually doing them. And do you know why that is? Most of the time, it’s because we aren’t asking for specific things.
The first strategy to getting anything you want is: be specific.
Many people, including me, have the tendency to ask for general things. Things like “make more money” or “travel more often” or “lose some weight”.
You have to get much more particular about your objectives.
Being specific means realizing what you want. When you want it. Who will be there with you when you get it, and what will life look like once you have obtained it.
Instead of saying “I want to make more money” tell me exactly how much you want to make. How will you feel when you get it? When do you want to be making this amount by? Why this specific amount?
Once you can see your goal in exact detail then you can start to figure out how to get there.
2. Don’t Let Anyone Tell You That You Can’t
The second strategy to get whatever you want is: don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t.
At whatever point someone tells you “you can’t do ______”, what they are truly saying is “I can’t do ______ and you make me feel uncomfortable”. It might be your friends, your family or your teacher… eventually someone is going to tell you that you can’t.
Pursuing your fantasies takes a lot of guts. You are building a life that few people have the courage to live. You travel and own property. You work for yourself and you spend loads of money on dinners and drinks with your friends. You have a life that scares people.
When people are afraid they tend to try and stop you because they don’t want to be uncomfortable. You can’t give them a chance to stop you!
Sometimes other people are not the problem. In a lot of cases, we have an amazing support system in place and everyone is our cheerleader. And the main individual who continues saying “You can’t do it” is yourself.
We come up with excuses and reasons why we can’t. We tell ourselves things like “it’s already been done”, “you aren’t smart enough”, or “you are too old or too young”. And, after some time, we begin to trust it.
The point is, don’t give anybody, or yourself, a chance to let you know that you can’t do something.
Rather, think of all the reasons it can work! Think of all the reasons you believe in yourself. Realize that you are capable and in control.
