I went to a Bible college before I started my Internet business.
I never graduated, but that’s a story for another time.
Today I was thinking about how another student at the college asked several of us, “Do you think God would ever lead you to do something you couldn’t do?”
I still remember my immediate response…
“Why would God ever ask you to do something you could do without Him?”
What would be the point of prayer if you already believed you could do it yourself?
The reason this conversation came back to me today was I was thinking about how so many of us think so small in our lives.
What could you accomplish if you forgot about your limitations?
What kind of business could you create?
How many people would you reach…and what could you do for them?
What lifestyle would you build for your family?
Maybe you’re limiting yourself because of failures you’ve had in the past.
Maybe it’s how your 5th grade teacher said you’d never amount to anything.
Maybe it’s because you don’t have ‘enough’ education.
The reason doesn’t matter. No matter what it is…it still points back to letting your past determine your future.
What if you really allowed yourself to dream?
You took off the limitations.
You forgot about what ‘you’ couldn’t do.
And you decided to do something that would really make a difference for people.
What would that be?
And what is the very first step you could take right now to start moving toward that dream?
You probably don’t have the whole team in place to make it happen.
That’s one of the secrets by the way. Don’t rely just on yourself. Create a vision and connect with others who can make it happen.
You probably don’t have all the resources you need yet either.
Everything starts somewhere.
But what could you do today to move toward your dream?
Perhaps it something as simple as buying a domain name.
Or you start studying more about the subject.
Or you send an email to someone you already know who could potentially partner with you to make it happen.
Get started small.
Sometimes I’ll ask clients to create long-term visions 3 to 5 years in the future. When we do that, we think big. We don’t think about how to accomplish it yet. All we want to do is get the vision down of where they’d love to be in that time.
Then we’ll move back from that vision and come up with one-year goals and 90-day stair steps to move toward those goals.
A lot of things that look impossible become possible once you start coming up with baby steps to get there…think about who you could partner with…the team you could put in place…and make a plan to start moving in that direction.
