Making Your Dreams Come True

Making Your Dreams Come True

Hey how’s it going

Today I want to share with you a video I came across on You Tube, well a series of videos title “Making Your Dreams Come True” presented by Jack Canfield co-author of the Chicken Soup For The Soul series of books which have sold millions of copies

This is the introduction and he shares a bit about him self.

He also shared a story of a boy

When I was a high school student there was a kid in my class that moved around and lived in the back of a truck,

his dad was a trainer,and he never lived anywhere more than a couple of months.So would never same at a school  more than a couple of months.

He had this dream though, he wanted to race or breedracing horses

The teacher at the school ask the kids to write a paper on “Wwhat do you want to do when you go up”

He got very excited cuz this was a chance to really go for his dream.

So he wrote down I want to raise thorough bred racing horses, and he drew a major diagram of  two hundred acre ranch with four thousand square foot house, and a race track with sables, and offices etc

It was very exciting  and he handed it in.

He got it back a week later with an F and a note “see me after class”

So he saw the  teacher and asked “how come i got an F?”

he said “You’re a poor kid living off the back of the truck, you know what land costs in this valley? do you know what it cost for breeding stock and for stud fees? This is an unrealistic dream for a young man like you. There’s no way you could ever achieve this. And it’s my job as a teacher to make sure you’re not go to be disappointed.”

“So I want you to write a more realistic dream for yourself and i’ll give you a higher grade.”

 

Well he went home any talked to his dad he said ” what should I do?”

His father said “I can’t tell you what to do with your life, but I will tell you this whatever you decide is probably gonna effect the rest of the your life, so think hard about it.”

He thought, he thought, and he thought. Now after week he went back to the teacher with the exact same paper

Hhe said “You can keep the F and I’m keeping my dream”

Years later he now has

  • four thousand square foot house
  • an is two hundred for acreage
  • income was over six

The reality is this poor boy made his dreams come true.

How did he do it?

Well that’s what you are going to find out in this series

 

Enjoy and have a fabulous day

Are You An Entrepreneur Or Opportunity Seeker

Are You An Entrepreneur Or Opportunity Seeker?

There are six differences that I am going to cover today in this video blog

Before we get into it which do you think you are? Entrepreneur or Opportunity Seeker?

So what are the 6 differences

  1. An Entrepreneur will find an opportunity and seeing it potential, (other have been successful with it) will then say how can I make this work for me and sets about making it work. Where as the opportunity seeker find an opportunity works with it for a bit then sees another and is off after that one because he thinks its better. So he is constantly chasing opportunities
  2. When an Enprepreneurs fails. He goes ok what went wrong here, how can I aviod that happening again, learns from it, get back up and carries on towards his objective. But the opportunity seeker goes “Holy crap that did work well it wasn’t a very good opportunity anyway”
  3. When they come up against obsticles the entrepreneur look at it and work out
    How can I or I can't

    I can or I can’t

    how he can over come it and ask “How can I do it, How can I fix it, How can I move forward.” On the other hand the opportunity seeker will go “I can’t do it, I can’t move forward , this opportunity sux!

  4.  An entrepreneur will take responsiblity for what he does. He is responsible if some thing go wrong them he moves on and fixes it or overcomes it. The Opportunity seeker it is never his faulty, is was the economy, the internet, the wrong list, I was sent thr wrong thing etc etc. He blames everyone and everything
  5. The Entrepreneur is prepare to work hard because he know that in the end he is going to succeed. So all the hard work will be worth it in the long run. He can see the benefit of all the hard work. The opportunity seeker on the other hand is not prepare to put in the hard yard he doesn’t see the big picture. Another easier, better opportunity will come along
  6. The entrepreneur will do whatever it take to make his opportunity succeed. If that means working to all hours of the night, or making lunch instead of buying so he can afford to advertize, then that’s how it is. But the opportunity seeker ain’t prepare to do what it takes. He would rather quit than miss out on sleep or lunch etc.

Now the we have discussed the difference, let me ask you again “Are you an entrepreneur or an opportunity seeker”

Leave a comment or if you have any question just ask.

Have a great day
