Success Becomes You
“Discipline becomes dormant in the absence of a dream ”
Jon Acuff writes in his book, Start
“Instead of asking, “What would I love to start doing?” let’s ask, “What can I not stop doing?”
So what is your dream? It has to be more than retiring wealthy, building a new home on the water, putting the kids through college, etc. etc. Mind you, nothing wrong with these goals, but until you get past them and make your dream finding something to share that will impact lives, you really will never find the success that you are looking for.
Furthermore, these dreams will not sustain you enough to give you the discipline that is needed to reach your goals. A dream must be much bigger than you and your world if you ever want to reach the world outside of your own personal dreams. If you never reach out to help others reach their dreams, you will struggle to reach yours.
So it is necessary to first make a paradigm shift in our thinking from that of reaching my own personal goals to that of reaching out to help others reach their goals.
One of my fellow physical therapists is a mother of five. She is a no nonsense giver of advice to her kids and one of her favorite lines is,
“If your not changing it, You’re choosing it”
So what is your choice?
