It’s so good to be back in the UK! (Especially if the weather stays like this!) I’m over for a jam-packed month of visiting loved ones, seeing friends and of course mentoring my wonderful clients and hopefully meeting many more at my event in London, before returning home to Barbados! Phew…
During my flight, I started to thinking about this week’s blog. And I quickly came to the conclusion that if there’s one thing that most entrepreneurs have in common, it’s that someone at some point has told them that their idea was no good or they should have done something a different way, or they were not capable or not to think too highly of themselves. Does that sound familiar to you?
I remember when I first started on my journey and was looking for properties in certain areas. Suddenly, everyone around me had an opinion. Don’t get me wrong, I value people wanting to share their thoughts with me, but I wasn’t going to‘take their word for it’ and sway my decision without doing my own research. I wanted my own evidence- fact – not storytelling. And guess what… I made lots of lucrative deals in those areas they told me not to invest in. In fact 15 years on I still have those properties and they are still rented out and have tripled in value.
But there is another thing we as entrepreneurs have in common… our creativity and desire to do more! YES MORE! I bet my bottom dollar that no matter what you’ve already achieved in your life… you want to do more!! You might have a dream that’s on the back burner and you’re unsure of how and when to make this dream a reality.
I’ve decided to write this blog today to tell you it’s time to go out and make it happen!
You may have followed one dream but don’t know when you’ll have the time to follow the next. You may have been told that your dream will never amount to anything. You may have been told that it ‘won’t work’. You may have been told that it’s out of your reach.
Well I’m here to tell you it doesn’t have to be this way. If I would have listened to the people who told me not to buy properties in the area I did, or that I was not capable, my life and my children’s and grandchildren’s life would be very different. I created not one property deal but a legacy…..and I may not have started my journey. And more importantly I many not have become the person I am today.
I genuinely believe, everyone has been put on this earth for a purpose. What if your purpose was to fulfil your dream and you didn’t try? You are the only one who can make your dream into a reality… so what are you waiting for? Don’t take your dreams to the grave, or even worse regret not even trying.
Go and take one action step today and every day towards making your dream a reality.
Leave a comment below, i’d love to hear what step you are going to make today!
We are all wanting to fulfil our dreams… do not wait any longer to fulfil yours…
Live the Life you Love
