That’s because life is what you make it, for the most part. Of course there are circumstances and situations you can’t control but YOU have got to decide how you’re going to respond to those things. And more importantly, YOU have to be the one who determines that your big dreams are NOT going to be held back by anything that comes along. On this episode I’m talking about some of the reasons that dreaming big is important – and one of the best reasons is that it brings others along with you. It may be your family, the people you serve, or the people you hire. But no matter who it is you have the opportunity to lift others by chasing those big dreams of yours. Take a listen to this one, I think you’ll like it.
Success unshared is failure.
A guy named John Paul DeJoria said that and I believe it with all my heart. We aren’t truly successful unless the blessing that comes to us through our success is also lifting another person to a better place. So what are you doing to make sure that every ounce of the success you have is actually benefitting other people as well as yourself? On this episode I’ve got a pretty clear idea for how you can do that and it has to do with adding people to your team. That may not make sense right away but if you’ll listen to this episode it won’t take you long to get it. Those big dreams of yours are enough to not only bring you to a higher place but to help others on their journey too.
If you’re holding onto every dollar you are unable to grow.
When I talk about adding people to your team you might immediately recoil, thinking that you can’t afford to do it. I know there are times when it’s hard to stretch the old budget to cover another expense. But you shouldn’t think of a team member as an expense even if that salary is an expense on paper. That’s because as you multiply your efforts through an assistant or a partner, you’ll find that success comes more quickly and the profit margin goes up. A person who’s worth being hired will replace their salary in income in no time. If you hold onto every dollar you’re never going to grow. OK, scratch that – you might grow INWARD and more SELFISH. But you’ll never impact other people in a positive way. Take a step out of your comfort zone to fuel that big dream of yours and see where it takes you – and the people you’re able to bring along for the ride.
Doesn’t it motivate you to empower others?
I’ve got a gal on my team who has hired an assistant to help her with her administrative stuff. The assistant does a great job and actually pays for her own salary through the work she does. But back to the gal on my team – she has a very deep motivation to take care of that assistant. The idea of not having enough income or profit to fund that assistant’s salary just kills her. It’s motivating to empower others, to provide a job for them, to put food on their table. Once you get someone on your payroll or on your team you’ll begin to care about their well being and want to succeed for their sake as much as yours. That’s when your big dreams become even bigger because they include someone else.
If you’re not growing, you’re not going anywhere.
Some people are pretty content by nature. They don’t have a lot of drive or ambition or desire to be much more than they are at this moment. If that is you, I get that, but look outside yourself for a moment. By not growing, you’re not going anywhere – and chances are the people around you aren’t going anywhere because you’re not. I’m talking about your family, your friends, your team members. I’ve learned that stepping outside my own comfort zone has forced me to grow in ways I never imagined. Now I’m ready to dream big – bigger than ever, and I’m excited to take others with me. What about you? Are you ready to dream big?
