What does it really take to build the dream?

From the blog Mediation Marketing Tips

It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged about inner game stuff.

You know, the game that takes place on the inside. One of my favorite subjects.

I’m sure as mediators you understand on some level that our inner world creates our outer world.

Well, what is true in one arena may be true in another.

I was recently perusing a new book called, The Girls Guide To Creating A Million Dollar Business by Susan Wilson Solovic. Don’t worry boys there’s good stuff in there for you too.

Anyway, she was mentioning what it takes to really build the dream and she said there were two qualities that every million dollar business owner had: confidence and determination.

Yes, confidence — a core belief in yourself.

I think of confidence in terms of a quiet sense of purpose. A sense of knowing who you are and an appreciation that you have been given gifts and talents and it is your job — no, it’s your duty — to use them for some greater good.

Do you understand who you are? What your natural gifts and talents are? Are you willing to work hard to turn your gifts and talents into strengths? Do you have a sense of purpose? Are you confident?

Determination is that never say die attitude. You know most successful people have had trails of failures. They have starts and stops and new starts. The road they have traveled has twisted and turned, but they were determined to do WHATEVER IT TAKES to make their dream come true.

To have this level of commitment you have to really believe in yourself (confidence) and also you have to really believe in the merit of your dream. Is working toward your objective really worth all that effort?

I think so. How about you?
Be confident, be determined.
NEVER GIVE UP!

Committed to your success,
Kristina
