Have you ever experienced the feeling of achieving a really massive goal?
If I had a dollar for every time I’ve helped someone achieve a goal, when they’d initially told me “I can’t do that”, I could retire tomorrow. What a nice thought!
Sometimes it was a small goal, like completing one full push-up or jogging 400 metres around the block without stopping. Other times it was something huge, like running a marathon, writing a book or starting a brand new business.
I’ve had a reputation for many years of being a master at planting the seed. My clients have told me this numerous times. I can see the potential in people and I know how much most people are capable of. And it’s much more than most people think.
In my experience, there is 3 steps to achieving success:
- Deciding on the goal
- Believing you can do it
- Doing what’s required, until you get there
And number 1 is where many people sell themselves short.
See I bet you don’t realise how much you are capable of achieving. So how can you decide to go for something when you don’t even realise it’s within the realm of possibility?
That’s where I step in.
Sometimes you don’t know what you’re capable of until someone points it out as a possibility. Plants the seed. And then better still, helps you feed and water and nurture that seed until it germinates.
And then blooms.
Be open to big ideas. I mean really big ideas! Things that scare the pants off you. Things that you know are going to change your life in a huge way. Remove the limits and trust in your abilities. Surround yourself with people who will believe in you enough to plant the seed and get ready for something amazing to happen.
