Do you have a dream that keeps surfacing, but you haven’t done anything about. It’s something that you really want, daydream about, but don’t take any action on. Don’t abandon it. Pursue it. Learn why failure isn’t an excuse to quit trying, and how to keep going. This video accompanies this month’s article, Say “Yes” to Your Vision.




Transcript:
Do you have a dream that keeps surfacing, but you haven’t done anything about? However, it keeps trying to get your attention, like a persistent itch. It just won’t let you alone.

What will it take for you to decide to scratch that itch, or pursue your dream? Maybe you’ll find that it’s not for you or that it’s not important enough. If so, that’s a signal to let go of that dream and move on to another one.

However, if you fail, get blocked or have a set-back, that’s not a signal to quit. It’s a signal to keep going. Most people don’t succeed the first time they follow through on a vision.

Did you know that, on average, it takes 30 attempts before a person successfully quits smoking? 30. But if a smoker keeps at it, each time, they learn what works for them and what doesn’t. That knowledge is used for the next attempt, and the next, until they’re successful.

On average, an entrepreneur will fail 4 times before they succeed. Being an entrepreneur means you have a learning curve. And you have to have the commitment to keep learning and keep going. Each time you try your chance of succeeding increases.

To begin to fulfill your dream, start taking micro-steps in its direction. It will help you get used to the idea of moving towards it and help create that habit.

Failure, setbacks or obstacles aren’t a signal to quit. If your vision persists, they’re signs to keep going, that you have more to learn. Have the commitment to move forward, to learn and grow, and keep applying that knowledge. Only then will that itch be satisfied.

Your self-image affects everything about you and your life. The way you perceive yourself filters how you view and respond to the world. It’s built of beliefs, and beliefs can be changed. Watch and listen to this short meditation that will help you start to shift how you think about yourself so that it’s more positive.



Transcript:
Your self-image is how you perceive yourself to be. And it affects your decisions, actions, attitudes and relationships. Your self-image is the filter for who you think you are and how you respond to situations around you. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy that you make true. But you can also change it because it’s build of beliefs. And beliefs can be changed. Here’s a short meditation to get you started.

If you want, close your eyes. Take a deep breath, let it out, and relax.

Consider what is right about you. Think of the things you’ve done that have been right and good. Reflect on what’s good, valuable and worthwhile about you. Contemplate what you like about yourself – your appearance, talents, characteristics. People view you as a good person. Think of all the compliments you’ve ever been given. Accept them. Allow yourself to feel the warmth of their glow. Now, consider the person you want to be. What do you need to believe to be that person? What if you start believing it now? What would change? You can start making those changes right now. How would that feel?

Open your eyes. When your negative self-talk starts to bring you down, shift your attention to what’s positive about you. This will help to improve your self-image and will make massive changes in your world.

Read the article, 3 Steps to Improving Your Self-Image, that inspired this meditation.
