In my previous post, I asked if you might be living someone else’s dream. In this post, my question is, do you have a dream of your own? Perhaps it’s something that you’ve put to the back of your mind because you don’t think it is possible. Perhaps it’s a dream you’ve never followed because you’re not sure how to take the first step. Perhaps it’s a dream that you’ve never followed because you don’t want to risk quitting your job, or outlaying a lot of money to make it possible. Perhaps you’ve been discouraged to follow your dream, or have failed in your first attempt.
There is a way to examine your dream, and put it to the test, to see if it really is what you want to do. Putting it to the test in this way has no risk, and is not costly.
In his book, “Put Your Dream To The test”, John Maxwell suggests that if you know the right ten questions to ask yourself, and if you can answer them with a “yes”, you will have an excellent chance of being able to achieve your dreams. The more questions you can answer with a “yes” the greater your chances of success. I have already dealt with one of these questions (the question of ownership) in my previous post, and will cover some of the others in future blog posts.
I will be running a mastermind on this book at the end of August. Participants will have the chance to exchange thoughts and ideas, learn from each other’s experiences, and put their dreams to the test. I only wish I’d had the opportunity to read this book and participate in a mastermind like this when I was deciding what to do when I took my redundancy!
If you are interested in participating in this mastermind, or would like more information, please contact me. Places are limited, and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis, so please act now to avoid disappointment.
