Do you have big dreams, but find that you’re not getting any closer to them?
Do you want to make your dreams come true, but find that you are missing certain resources to make them happen?
One of my dreams is to become a multi-millionaire who invests in small up and coming start-ups.
I love entrepreneurship and I would love to have enough money to invest in a bunch of amazing companies that have great ideas, and great people, but that just need some help financially to get going.
When I think about my dream, typically the first place that my mind will go to is a future time where it envisions me having millions and millions of dollars and THEN investing in certain start-up companies.
It kind of pre-supposes that I need to be a multi-millionaire first, before investing in companies because that is the vision that I have for my future.
However, there is a faster way to achieve your dreams by starting to take action towards your dreams WITHIN the resources you currently have available to you, instead of waiting for ALL the resources you would need before getting started.
For example, going back to my example of wanting to invest millions of dollars into entrepreneurial ventures that I believe in, right now I don’t have an extra few million dollars lying around to invest in companies…
… so it would be easy for me to think “Ah, whatever…I’ll just wait until I am a multi-millionaire with extra cash lying around then I’ll start investing.”
However, what if I didn’t place such unnecessary limitations on myself?
What if I could start funding entrepreneurial ventures NOW – TODAY?
But instead of investing millions of dollars which I don’t currently have yet, what if I could do it in a small way?
By applying this line of thinking in my life, I have been able to start moving towards my dream in a very tiny way… basically “Micro-Starting” the process.
Well, simply by making the decision to get started right away, and not waiting for some future day in my life, the Universe starting to bring to me many different opportunities where I could get involved in very small ways.
For example I have funded about a half-dozen crowdfunding projects, including the Skulpt Aim weight loss gadget I just did a video of a few days ago.
Another example of getting started in a very small way, has been my Kiva micro-loan campaign that I started earlier this year.
We’re not talking about huge amounts of money here to get started with these types of projects, but the energetic payoff has been awesome as it makes me feel amazing to know that even though I’m not yet at the level I want to be financially to be able to fund much larger projects, I can at least still be involved TODAY albeit in a smaller way.
Now, ask yourself… what are some of YOUR dreams?
Are there certain resources that you still lack to make them come true?
Not enough time?
Not enough money?
Not enough connections?
Not enough knowledge?
All these different types of resources could hold you back from expressing your dreams, but they don’t have to!
What if you just took one tiny step forward?
For example, let’s say that your dream is to make a full time income online working from home…
… but let’s say that you’ve never made a single penny online yet and you feel totally overwhelmed with all the stuff you need to do to get started.
Well, what if you just took one tiny step forward, like registered your first domain, or setup a Blog?
Don’t over-think it.
Don’t worry about what Step 2 or Step 3 or Step 100 is going to be just yet…
… only focus on taking one tiny step forward.
Another one of my dreams is that I want to be a DJ / Music producer as well…
… however, right now my time is primarily focused on building my online businesses such as this blog, so I don’t have a lot of time to work on that dream.
However, instead of just ignoring that dream completely, what I do is I carve out tiny moments of time when I work on being a DJ / Music producer.
For example, last night at around 1 am in the morning, I spent about an hour of my time learning one of my first transitions that I learned as a DJ.
Even though I only had one hour of time I could devote towards making that dream happen, one hour is better than zero.
ANYTHING is better than zero.
To make your dreams come true, you have to get out of the mentality of thinking that life is an “ALL OR NOTHING” game.
Do whatever you CAN do right now with the resources you currently have, and the Universe will flow MORE resources your way.
