There is no doubt that it is important to have a philosophy to live and work from. The development of this can only come from reflection and hard work. However, this hard work will help you to have a solid foundation to all that you do.
People and clients need to know what you stand for and what is it about you that sets you apart from others. Not what makes you better than others but what is your Trademark or what I prefer your philosophy.
I always say that mine is based on maximising the potential of people I come in contact with be it students or athletes. However, this may sound a trifle superficial so it needs to be developed further. What I believe is that we are all here for a reason, we all have great potential BUT sometimes we need help in unleashing that potential. I know I have had people that have helped me in my life do this and therefore it is my mission to do that for others.
What is your philosophy?
When we are young we believed that our dreams could come true but as we age our dreams become smaller and often we don’t have any dreams at all. Why do we as a society thunder down on other peoples dreams?
What are your dreams? Not your goals but your dreams for your future. Having a dream is always much bigger than a goal and I believe our goals are what can lead us to the dream. Its just so sad that people are dictated by the attitudes of others and often close family but if you aim low you can only achieve what you aim for.
We need to resurrect the attitude to dreams that we had as children. When you dream, think big, far bigger than your thinking now and go for it. Don’t let anyone put you off your dream, don’t let negative talk both from within and without stop your progress.
We have to stop living for today, we need to be forward focus and we need to show our children’s generation that as you age your ability to dream and strive for that dream doesn’t die.
I know it is easy to get caught up in the robustness of life but this is a distraction from what you are really meant to be doing. In fact ask yourself “What are my dreams”? I asked myself this exact question and realised that like many others I didn’t have a dream but now I am more determined than ever to determine what my dreams are and how Im going to achieve it.
I fully believe that you are not given the power to dream something if you don’t have the power to achieve it. Over the next couple of weeks see how people react to your dreams and you will be surprised how the enemy can work through even the people closest to you.
Never stop dreaming and make sure these dreams are bigger than you could ever imagine but also make sure you do good for the world as you move along the path to achieving it.
