So, I went through a phase in life where I was reading and listening to self-help books and audio books. I was wondering how the business greats and pioneers of this country's wealth-building systems made their dreams come true.
Plainly stated, the key to their success was thinking big. They imagined what would happen if their wildest dream was accomplished and let nothing stop them on the way to achieving that goal. Many cited in case studies within these books started off poor, uneducated, or disrespected. Many did not have support from family or friends to achieve their dreams, however they accomplished their dreams anyway.
No matter how many pitfalls they encountered, they started the businesses and initiated the ideas that lay the foundation for the American business, nonprofit, and cultural landscape today.
They did it then, and we can do it now. We can take the action steps needed to lay the foundation to achieve our dreams if we truly believe they can come true. Think about it...What is your wildest dream? Imagine yourself pursuing it, accomplishing it, then stepping back and observing the success you have brought yourself to. It's time for us to make our dreams happen. We've read about it and saw it on TV--what happens when entrepreneurs make their visions come true. We've seen history happen before our eyes. It's our turn. Let's make history happen, Skillologists.
