In my eight years of running this company, and five years of my business fully supporting me, I have observed that when most people say they're going to do something, they often go back-and-forth, questioning themselves often, while taking on outside opinions that say their desired outcome is far fetched and impossible to achieve.
The truth is, without a real decision, nothing ever moves forward.
A firm, committed, non-negotiable internal decision is required to move your dreams forward.
Every day in my journal I listed out who I was, what I would have, and where I was going.
That is something I still do today.
That nanny/cocktail server had already made her decision already. The company I have today was clear in my heart and mind from behind that bar.
2. Hold two visions at a time.
My first business goal was to afford two blowouts a month and pay my rent with business earnings.
Eight years later, I'm buying a multimillion dollar house in a posh neighborhood in LA and meet seven-figure investment goals. How?
I hold two visions at once. I always know what the short term goal is (i.e.: the next thing you will buy, do, or pay off in the immediate future) and the long term goal is (the big vision in your life and the wild goals you deeply long to achieve).
Through holding two visions at a time, the daily steps I take are able to move both goals forward.
I encourage you to see yourself as at your next level of success while continuing to do what is required in your daily life.
In this way, you can meet the daily needs of your business while knowing that all steps are adding up to your bigger vision.
Even when I was in school and working three of these jobs at at time, I did what was required each day for those job and I held tightly to the vision of the company I was building.
3. Ignore everyone — and I mean everyone.
A lot of people will have opinions about what you should do to achieve your dreams.
Unless they have what you want, ignore them. (This includes your psychic, pastor, and parents.) You have to do what works for, is right for, and makes sense to you.
It doesn't matter who says it isn't wise, realistic, or business savvy. You have the unique insight for the business that you desire to bring to the world. You have to trust your own intuition.
The thing is, the rules are outdated. And only going after what is realistic is not what your soul is yearning for.
Only listen to the people and things that help you believe in yourself and your limitless possibility.
Whether you're just embarking on your entrepreneurial journey or are well into it, remember that a daily commitment to yourself and your vision is the difference between a business that barely moves forward, experiencing inconsistent success, and a thriving business that multiples their revenue every year.
Back when I was working all of those jobs (not that long ago, really!) I knew and believed in the plans I had for myself and my life — and acted accordingly each day.
