Living the American Dream
Yes, I am following my destiny and I am on track toward my full potential.
But that wasn’t always the case. For many years, I struggled to achieve my dreams. I just couldn’t make it work. I had big dreams, but somehow they would never quite work out. But I never gave up.
Overtime, as I studied and researched how others achieved their dreams, I begin to discover the very principles of success. And they weren’t what I expected. In fact, I was very surprised at what I discovered. But at the same time, I was so excited, because, what I discovered changed everything.
Before this discovery, I could never seem to get my act together. Then I found out why. Because, I was going about it all wrong. I was denying my true potential and I didn’t even know it. What I discovered was so mind blowing to me that I still get goose bumps whenever I think about it.
You Were Born For A Reason
You Must Know This! You were born for a reason. You have a purpose. And in order for you to achieve your true potential, you must discover your purpose in life. Until you do that, you’re seeing through a glass darkly.
However, once you discover your life’s purpose, your whole perspective changes and the possibility of living your dreams will take on a whole new meaning.
That’s why I coach people and host life-changing classes and training. I want people to be able to discover for themselves the principles of success and happiness that I discovered
Now, I didn’t learn these principles all at once. I discovered them over a period of about 35 years. I realize 35 years is a long time. But, you don’t have to wait that long to begin living your dreams. You can start right now! And, If you follow the principles I teach, I promise you, it will change your life!
Why Are People Successful?
So, why are some people so successful and others or not?
There are several reasons, but one reason is that successful people know their purpose in life! They know what they were born to do. They have direction and a certainty about who they are and what their destiny is.
Do you know your life’s purpose?
If not, you really need to take the time to discover Who You Are.
Successful People KNOW Who They Are.
But how do you come to know who you are?
For most of us, those are difficult questions to answer. Many people never learn who they really are and never fulfill their true potential. Benjamin Franklin once observed,
Why is it so hard for us to know?
Well, SOMEONE, can tell you.
Someone, does know your true potential and is just waiting to tell you. All you have to do is ask.
And that someone, is you. Your purpose – your destiny is in YOU. It’s a part of who you are. It’s in your DNA. But to make that conscious discovery, you have to look inward. And looking inward can be very difficult.
Look In The Mirror
When you look in the mirror at who you really are, sometimes you may not like what you see and that can be frightening.
You must overcome your fears and face yourself long enough to find the real person – the real YOU, hiding BEHIND all those worries, excuses, denials and habits – Hiding behind all those things you don’t like about yourself.
Behind all that personal baggage, is a very magnificent person with an incredible mission and a destiny just waiting to be discovered and fulfilled. You just have to look past, all that STUFF, to see the real you. The good you. You are awesome, you just don’t know it yet.
Look Inward To Find Your Destiny
As humans we have been conditioned to notice what’s wrong instead of what’s right. When you look inward, you tend to notice your failings and get discouraged, when instead, you should notice the good and the wonderful and get inspired.
When you are inspired, you see the world differently. You have hope. You act better. You do better. You are better!
Then, the goodness within you can come out. That glory and Godliness within, is manifested outwardly, inspiring and motivating others to become better too. As this happens, you begin to see your true nature and your life’s purpose begins to come into focus.
You can hasten this process through the power of prayer. There is someone else who knows your true potential and that person is God. He created you for a reason. He knows you and He knows exactly what you were born to do. So ask Him!
When your purpose in life is clear, living the American dream becomes a whole lot simpler.
What is Your Mission Statement?
Most successful companies have a purpose or mission statement. It keeps them focused on what they intend to accomplish. You should know and follow your purpose in life too! It should be your intention.
Let’s get back to our original questions.
How do you know what you’re supposed to do in life?
The First Step
Realizing that you don’t yet know your full potential is the first step to grasping who you really are. And, once you recognize that you have a higher calling, you can then seek and discover who you were born to be.
There’s a lot of ground that I am not able to cover right now regarding your divine nature and your true potential. I just don’t have room here. But in my seminars, I reveal three different ways that to help you discover your destiny. However, I will tell you a secret that very few people know.
I Will Tell You A Secret!
You don’t have just one destiny! You have multiple destinies and each destiny builds upon another.
One destiny will build and develop certain qualities, abilities and characteristics within you. The next destiny will then build up on the previous one, further developing those abilities and characteristics. As you fulfill one destiny, another will appear. As you achieve that destiny, a new one will present itself.
Each new destiny builds upon previous ones fulfilling your dreams along the way. As you go through this process of building one upon another, just what are you building? You are building a BETTER you! I guarantee you, your true potential is much greater than you can imagine.
Your True Potential Is Greater Than You Know
Sometimes we kill our dreams and sabotage our destinies before we even get started. We don’t think great things will happen to us or that we don’t deserve it, we’re not smart enough, we don’t know the right people or some other excuse. Those are all forms of fear. Don’t be afraid!
Don’t be afraid to succeed. Babe Ruth struck out over 1300 times. Yet he was one of the greatest baseball players in history. That’s who he was meant to be. Don’t let fear take away your dreams. Don’t be afraid to fulfill YOUR destiny.
There is a little-known, but very powerful method to overcome your fears! It’s called mile-posting and is one of five methods I teach.
Overcome Your Fears
Mile-posting helps you concentrate your focus in a way that not only overcomes your fears and doubts, but also strengthens and increases your personal willpower. Here’s how it works;
Whenever you plan a lengthy, cross-country trip, you will usually include several legs in your journey. Between each leg along the route, is a mile marker or milepost, representing the end of one leg and the beginning of a new leg of your journey. Typically these are used as pit stops or rest stops where you can prepare for the next leg of the trip.
The same idea applies as you travel towards your personal destiny. Instead of worrying and fretting about the immensity or complexities of the entire trip, focus only on the next milepost of your journey.
Ignore your fears and set them aside. Focus only on reaching the next short-term goal. Think only about this leg of the journey. Tell yourself something like, “I can at least make it to that next milepost. That’s where I can rest.”
Then, when you finish that leg of your journey, look ahead to that next mile marker on the path to your destiny and say, “I can make it to that spot, just ahead of me. That’s where I will take another breather.” Then move to that next pit stop or milepost.
Pick the next mile marker or short-term goal and repeat the process. You can use this method over and over again until you reach your final destiny or goal. In this way, you can focus directly and only on the next intermediate goal rather than your fears.
Since the human mind can only focus on one thing at a time, there is no room to consider the fear, doubt or apprehension that might come when considering the entire project, objective or intention.
Some of the most successful people have been able to achieve their American dreams by using this method. They use mile-posting. They may not call it “mile-posting” but they use that very process. They focus on something other than their fears, to achieve their dreams.
So, stop focusing on your fears and focus only on the next milepost on the way to fulfilling your destiny. You’re simply eating the elephant one bite at a time in manageable segments and focusing only on that bite and not the whole elephant. You can use this technique, to overcome your fears and never have to doubt yourself again.
This is about living the American dream. You were meant for greatness! Somehow, you know that, deep inside. So why does it seem so difficult to achieve your dreams? Wouldn’t it be great if you could just know what to do at any given time?
Tap Into The Wisdom of The Universe
Did you know you can receive wisdom beyond your own understanding and tap into that divine wisdom on a regular basis? It’s not really hard at all. You just have to know the formula. It is a tried and true method that has been used for ages, but is dismissed many times in modern culture. Following that ancient formula faithfully, will allow you to tap in to a wisdom higher than your own.
How do you tap into the universal mind and inspiration of God? He is communicating with us all the time, but most people don’t know how to listen for or recognize those divine communications. Henry Ward Beecher, a famous clergyman once said;
Don’t let ten thousand truths just ‘fly away’. Tap into those truths. That is how people like Thomas Edison, Quarterback Tim Tebow, Ronald Reagan and many others achieved so much. They sought out and listened to a ‘higher wisdom’ than their own’. If they can do it, so can you! And, I will show you how.
There’s a wealth of information and I present it all in a training series I sponsor called “Find Your Life Purpose“. I provide this information to help people achieve their full potential. That’s my life-purpose. I’m fulfilling my destiny.
All these truths are meant to help you live your dreams. Please recognize that you have great, untapped potential and in order to reach your full potential you cannot limit your progress. Instead, you need to expand your horizons. You need to become more! You must experience personal growth.
Expand Your Mind
The laws of nature demand that we grow or die. As you know, plants are either growing or dying. The universe is always expanding and growing. You should always be growing too. Expand your mind. Expand your abilities. Expand your influence, your experience and your wisdom. You were born to grow.
Seldom, if ever, will someone encourage you to stagnate or stop learning. No one would encourage you to reduce your influence, experience less or enjoy less. Why?
Because we all know instinctively that we must grow. Even when we are not growing, we know we should. It is our nature to grow and develop. But, growth requires getting out of your comfort zone. Being out of your comfort zone invites fear. Overcome your fears and take action. Don’t be afraid to grow.
