The amount of money that motivational speakers make annually working to convince everyday dreamers that it’s possible to actually have the life they want is a testimony to an unfortunate truth; most of us desire greatness but lack the faith to believe we can have it.
But in all fairness, is it just a lack of faith that holds us back or could it also stem from a lack of information and resources? You can have all the faith in the world, but without a clear blueprint of the necessary steps for fueling that inner fire, you’ll likely fizzle out before you’ve even had a chance to warm up the room. That’s why information and knowledge is just as important as being motivated to conquer your dream.
Let’s say you watched a Youtube video of someone overcoming a fear of heights and climbing a mountain with a certain dexterity that would have you believe that they merely leaped over a hill. What if that video motivated you to follow in their footsteps? Now you’re on fire with a goal of conquering a mountain too! That’s awesome! BUT – what’s your next move? You don’t know how to climb, and you don’t even know what gear you should purchase that will be the difference between hanging on a rope for dear life or smiling all the way to the finish line! You just know you want something incredible, and faith tells you it’s possible to have because you’ve seen someone else do it. But is that all it takes? No. You also need information. The “HOW.” Without it you’re left sitting at square one with a desire that is relying on merely motivation to drive you up that mountain and then bring you back down –alive.
If you want to own a business, you need more than just motivational videos and books to thrust you into action, you need a special cocktail designed to leave you drunk with ability. It will take 3 ingredients to change your life. You must combine faith, motivation, and information to harness that idea into a dream that will set you up for a prosperous future. Now is the time to invest in learning and education, to find a mentor, to read as many books as you can on your niche, and to join online groups or local meetups that connect you with like-minded people on a similar journey who are willing to share their stories, processes, and hear yours. When you shy away from the formula, you succumb to outside noise that’ll keep you dreaming you can, but never really believing it can happen for you.
