Achieving Your Dreams
Let’s be honest we all have dreams but achieving your dreams is a whole different ball park so when we saw this article from our favourite speaker, the late Jim Rohn we took the liberty of sharing it on our blog for those of you who may not otherwise see it.
Achieving Your Dreams ~ Jim Rohn
“While most people spend most of their lives struggling to earn a living, a much smaller number seem to have everything going their way. Instead of just earning a living, the smaller group is busily working at building and enjoying a fortune. Everything just seems to work out for them. And here sits the much larger group, wondering how life can be so unfair, so complicated and unjust. What’s the major difference between the little group with so much and the larger group with so little?”
The truth is that despite all of the factors that affect our lives—like the kind of parents we have, the schools we attended, the part of the country we grew up in—none has as much potential power for affecting our futures as our ability to dream – achieving your dreams.
Jumping over Obstacles When Achieving Your Dreams
Dreams are a projection of the kind of life you want to lead. Dreams can drive you. Dreams can make you skip over obstacles. When you allow your dreams to pull you, they unleash a creative force that can overpower any obstacle in your path. To unleash this power, though, your dreams must be well defined. A fuzzy future has little pulling power. Well-defined dreams are not fuzzy. Wishes are fuzzy. To really be achieving your dreams, to really have your future plans pull you forward, your dreams must be vivid.
We also believe that you must have a purpose for achieving your dreams. If you don’t have a purpose that is strong enough to cause you to take daily and consistent action to achieving your dreams then you won’t make it happen.
Often times you hear speakers on stage alluding to what you would do if the life of your child were in your hands for them to live or to die by your actions. Actually, your purpose does have to be that strong!
Jim Rohn goes on to say in the story …..
“If you’ve ever hiked a 14,000-foot peak in the Rocky Mountains, one thought has surely come to mind: “How did the settlers of this country do it?” How did they get from the East Coast to the West Coast? Carrying one day’s supply of food and water is hard enough. Can you imagine hauling all of your worldly goods with you… mile after mile, day after day, month after month? These people had big dreams. They had ambition. They didn’t focus on the hardship of getting up the mountain.
In their minds, they were already on the other side—their bodies just hadn’t gotten them there yet! Despite all of their pains and struggles, all of the births and deaths along the way, those who made it to the other side had a single vision: to reach the land of continuous sunshine and extraordinary wealth. To start over where anything and everything was possible. Their dreams were stronger than the obstacles in their way.
You’ve got to be a dreamer. You’ve got to envision the future. You’ve got to see California while you’re climbing 14,000-foot peaks. You’ve got to see the finish line while you’re running the race. You’ve got to hear the cheers when you’re in the middle of a monster project. And you’ve got to be willing to put yourself through the paces of doing the uncomfortable until it becomes comfortable. Because that’s how you realize your dreams.”
On a personal note we have a very strong reason for achieving our dream – to travel the world and to help bring education to every child in parts of the world it is not a given right.
In fact, when we were in Miami recently (the travel the world bit) we recorded a video on the beach to share our dream and help to bring it to reality by sharing our intention.
Achieving Your Dreams – Our Vision for Our Future
We recorded this whilst on a Mastermind in Miami and to explain that taking an action to change our lives has also inspired hundreds of other people

If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much ~ Jim Rohn
