Reach for the stars and dream
You can obtain your dreams/ potential by:
– have the courage to dream big
– know who you want to be
– know what you want to do
– when you find your passion you will soar
Believe in you potential
– it’s not what happens but how you deal with it
– tell yourself “my potential lies inside of me. It gives me the ability to reach for the something better. To do better. To be better”
Average person has 4-7,000 thoughts a day
Be the author of your own thoughts.
Do not doubt your potential.
You mindset is most powerful.
3. Taking Action
Do the 4T’s
Take the time to do the tasks to master your craft
Train- when things are tough train more
Team- everyone need a team to help you reach your potential.
Don;t forget to ask yourself what is distracting you?
Know you do have to pay the price to fulfill your dreams. That price is the 4 T’s (is the the price, training and it takes time to know the tasks to do and have a team to support your dreams and potential )
I highly recommend you go see Karl speak. He is sure to motivate you.His message is memorable.
