This Sunday at Ideas Developing Ideas I had the opportunity to sit down with a friend wise beyond his years, David O'Neil, and we talked about how the difference between dreamers and do'ers. Is your path pre-determined, or do you chose your own destiny? If you chose it, why do some people actually live it and others simply wonder?
Expectations based on previous results can cause us to slack off on current progress. 99% of people have the same issue holding them back from maintaining long term success.
A person with an average level of thinking floats through life accepting things "as is", never creating a vision for themselves because they fear the idea of change. Champions create a vision and work towards it because they know they power they have inside of their minds.
I am the enemy of myself. Going after my dreams has always been a vision of mine. Along the way I've run into a problem that plagues each and every single person who lives. The enemy of my dreams is me. I control the outcome of my dreams -- the failures and the successes.
