How to realize your dreams
How can you realize your dreams?
Few years back i had the dream of driving a car that is worth 125,000 Dollars. The car wasn't that expensive because of its real price but because customs here in Egypt force you to pay triple the price of a car especially if it was a convertible car.
For years i kept the car's picture on my desktop so that i remind myself of that dream. Few days ago and before the age of thirty i bought the car here in Egypt and i realized the dream!
In this article i will tell you how to realize your dreams as well.
To realize your dreams you must have solid faith in yourself
Before i bought that car, Audi TT convertible, i believed that one day i will buy it. I didn't have any idea how i will get such an amount of money but i was sure i am going to do it one day.
Now the question you might be asking yourself is, how can a person have such a solid faith in himself?
There are two types of people in this world, those who blame themselves for their misfortunes and those who blame everything else in order to escape from the responsibility. (learn more about those two types here)
A reader once sent me a message telling that talking is easy and that i am a millionaire already and that's why its easy for me to talk with such a positive tone. I replied with these simple words:
"When i was 23 years old i had no savings and i wrote on a paper that i will become a millionaire then by the time i was 28 i was a millionaire already". (see the Ultimate guide to becoming rich to learn how to acquire the millionaire mindset)
If i didn't take the responsibility and assumed that something else is responsible for my misfortunes such as luck, genes, economy, Donald duck or even aliens then i wouldn't have been where i am now.
If you want to realize your dreams then you must be brave enough to stop escaping from your fears and to start taking responsibility of your life. (see What is real courage)
To realize your dreams you must be crazy
"Farouk, Making money online, are you serious? You are crazy"
Those were just a tiny sample of the hundreds of comments that i got from most people when i told them that i intend to make money online. Whenever you find everyone telling you that you are crazy then know that you are moving in the right direction simply because people call others crazy when they find them moving in a direction that they didn't dare to move towards. (see also Why the opinion of the majority makes no sense)
People will call you crazy when you start doing the things they always feared to do. Don't get me wrong and think that i am asking you to quit your job. That might not be the correct choice in your case but what you must do is to move out of your comfort zone and to become crazy in the eyes of your friends.
If you are serious about realizing your dreams then you must be crazy enough to move against everybody.
Finally to realize your dreams you must be a boxer
No no, not the boxer that came to your mind!
Muhammad Ali, the most famous boxer in the world, once said: its not about falling but its about about getting hit very hard and standing up again.
The same goes for success in any other life area, it not about falling but its all about standing up again.
I started more than 9 businesses that failed for different reasons. With each failure i learned a new lesson until one day i managed to grasp all the knowledge needed to start a successful business.
To realize your dreams you must learn how to stand up again whenever you fall.
With disregard to your opinion about how the car looks like, this picture is a live example of a dream that came true.
one year later i managed to upgrade the car and buy an even better one.
I have managed to become a self made millionaire at the age of 28. This didn't happen by chance because i already wrote that goal down five years before i accomplished it. Becoming rich is not about luck, starting big or being intelligent but its all about having certain beliefs about money and life.
In The Ultimate guide to becoming rich i will teach you everything that you need to know in order to become rich.
