In the last email, I shared a talk given by Alex Hormozi. In that speech he recommended reading the autobiographies of Billionaires.
I decided to take up the challenge. One of the first books recommended (in my search results on Scribd) was a book by Brian Tracy. This excerpt that I am about to share with you may sound familiar because SOOOOOO many coaches & “gurus” copy it.
I am not going to re-word it and claim it as my own, because I want to tie you directly to the source. This is such a massive value bomb that I know will propel many of you further than you previously imagined possible.
All great men and women begin with a dream of something wonderful and different from what they have today. You know the song that says “You have to have a dream if you want to make a dream come true.” It’s true for you and for everyone else, as well.
Imagine that you have no limitations on what you can be, have, or do in life. Just for the moment, imagine that you have all the time, all the money, all the education, all the experience, all the friends, all the contacts, all the resources, and everything else you need to achieve anything you want in life. If your potential were completely unlimited, what kind of a life would you want to create for yourself and your family?
Practice “back from the future” thinking. This is a powerful technique practiced continually by highperforming men and women. This way of thinking has an amazing effect on your mind and on your behavior. Here is how it works: Project yourself forward five years. Imagine that five years have passed and that your life is now perfect in every respect. What does it look like? What are you doing? Where are you working? How much money are you earning? How much do you have in the bank? What kind of a lifestyle do you have?
Create a vision for yourself for the long-term future. The more clear your vision of health, happiness, and prosperity, the faster you move toward it and the faster it moves toward you. When you create a clear mental picture of where you are going in life, you become more positive, more motivated, and more determined to make it a reality. You trigger your natural creativity and come up with idea after idea to help make your vision come true.
If you were absolutely guaranteed of success in any one goal in life, large or small, short-term or longterm, what would it be? What one great goal would you dare to dream if you knew you could not fail?
Whatever it is, write it down and begin imagining that you have achieved this one great goal already. Then, look back to where you are today. What would you have done to get where you want to go? What steps would you have taken? What would you have changed in your life? What would you have started up or abandoned? Who would you be with? Who would you no longer be with? If your life were perfect in every respect, what would it look like? Whatever it is that you would do differently, take the first step today.
