When I came to America from Canada, I had $500 and wasn’t allowed to work in this country.
When I eventually built a real estate division, I started from scratch. And when I started HeartCore Business™, I had nothing.
Now, HeartCore Business™ is focused on crossing the 8 figure mark, and I’ve just moved into my dream home on the San Diego coast,
with my husband and son.
I’m not telling you this to brag about everything I’ve created; I’m telling you this because the only reason I’ve created success (over and over again) is because I fought the most important battle you’ll fight as an entrepreneur: the battle of me versus myself.
When you fight this important battle, you win! You begin creating the visions you dream of creating. You begin experiencing the successes you dream of experiencing.
So how do you do it?
What do you actually do to fight and win this battle?
1. Create your vision.
Consider what you really, truly want in your life. What would make your life extraordinary for you?
What kind of plan would allow you the energy to do what you need to do, in order to help as many people as you can? In order to create a movement—to have a positive impact on clients and the world, and to experience freedom and abundance beyond your wildest dreams?
2. Recognize that your life is a series of small decisions that add up over time.
Think about the decisions that you can make every day that will lead to the vision you have. These decisions don’t have to be huge decisions. For example, during the first days of our move to the new house, we didn’t have any food in our old house. We hadn’t quite moved in, and one morning, while we were in the old house, my husband made the decision to go out and get breakfast for all of us and bring it back.
That was part of his vision of being a great, over-and-above husband.
3. Set a Declaration Helps You start thinking bigger…
When you make declarations to create something each day, you’re able to practice creating what you want. Although you could play small (“I’m going to have a good attitude while I pack my kids’ lunches today”), I don’t recommend it.
Think big. For example, on moving day, I could have declared that I would make three sales, or even five, while I was moving.
What would be a stretch for you? What would be a juicy declaration you could make to yourself—one that would make you feel extraordinary when you complete it?
When creating declarations, ask yourself if the declaration you’re considering will challenge you to show up bigger, if it’s meaningful to you.
4. It’s True: You Really Can You can create a movement And Here’s How…
Whether it’s a coach or a group of entrepreneurs (like a mastermind), or some other form of community, immerse yourself in a movement—because none of us do it alone.
If you become involved with a community, you’ll learn skills and leadership that transform your life and the lives of millions of people you reach.
5. Take a stand and make it happen.
Your dream isn’t going to come true unless you unapologetically make offers to your vision in this world.
In conclusion …
You have the power within you to make your dream come true. It requires work. It requires you to make the right decisions day after day, because they add up. And it requires you to seek and share help in community and then take action.
