Are you sick and tired of all the limitations that are constantly being placed on you: the culture in your work place, the type of job that is right for you, the demand for upbeat posts on social media, the speed you drive at, the long line at the airport check-in?
We’ve all been there.
But here’s the good news. Today is different.
Because in my new book, Fierce Reinvention, I give you unfettered permission to dream: I challenge you to forget any present constraints you may feel; I challenge you to not focus on any likely difficulties that may arise making it hard or impossible to achieve your goal.
Just like that, you have permission to focus on your dream.
Let’s jump right in. Complete the following four sentences as a primer to open your mind to all possibilities and empower you to take your dream further:
- Forget the Nobel Prize. Forget an Olympic gold medal, I would love to win…
- Since anything is possible, I want to achieve…
- Since there are no constraints around me, the limits of my potential are…
- I feel anxious about setting this goal out one to two years, but if I set it at x years I stop worrying about how it might be achieved.
Now that you’ve set your goal let me ask, “What if you were 10x bolder in your thinking?”
“What about 100x?”
Preferably say your answers out loud.
Now repeat them even louder and more assertively and then capture them in your journal.
Lastly, I want you to imagine that your goal has become a truly viral moonshot goal. It’s magnetic and people are rallying around it.
Let me now ask, “What if you had all the support you could ever need to achieve your goal, what would be possible then?”
What’s stopping you? I’ve given you all the permission you’ll ever need.
