Everyone wants to accomplish great things. I think that goes without saying. If you’re reading this blog, you are clearly someone that desires more, desires greatness, or desires adventure.
But why is it that some people seem to create success so effortlessly, while others seem to fail time after time? Why does success feel so challenging for some of us yet so simple for others?
The first lesson that any aspiring entrepreneur or success-oriented individual is that the first aspect of their lives that needs addressing is their philosophy, or perspective. If your thoughts limit you, everything else won’t work. I am going to do a series on the 10 things that separate Dreamers and Doers, one point at a time, so we can all try and uncover brick by brick what limits us from moving forward.
Firstly, let’s define Dreamers, and Doers.
Dreamers are people that have big goals, big dreams, and believe they are destined for success. They believe God, the universe, or “things” will just work out in their favor, and that they deserve success. Unfortunately, very often mindset this leaves those people “waiting” for success as opposed to hitting the streets, knocking on doors, networking, and making it happen.
Doers are Dreamers with a plan, with hustle, with drive, and with a rabid desire for success. They know success comes from pushing, driving, networking, making calls, working it, and with that grind luck will eventually come their way (and often not in the timeframe they expect.) Doers are willing to do what it takes to get the job done. They are willing to “sacrifice” (a mindset that needs to be addressed later), they are willing to burn the midnight oil, and they are willing to humble themselves to ask for help when they don’t understand something.
This series on Dreamers and Doers will be progressively unveiled as we go. But before we move forward, you must first decide if, based upon my definitions, you are a Dreamer, or a Doer? Are you willing to be honest with yourself? If you’re not you will never move forward. Start there.
