“We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline and effort.” – Jesse Owens

Have you taken the next step with your dreams? Most never do. They always lack at least one of the four components Jesse lists which holds them back from ever achieving their dreams.

Often, people will go in spurts with these four key traits for success. The determination to succeed comes and goes. When they are irritated enough by their current circumstances, they are determined to make a change… until this feeling lessens some.

Dedication and self-discipline are extremely variable. For many, the pain of making the change is greater than the pain of staying where they are. This is the reason many people stay stuck. The dream of doing and achieving something different is a fantastic thought. In many cases, the pain of where they are now must increase to get over this hurdle.

And then we come to effort. Many times this one comes down to a lack of confidence in knowing what truly to do next to create the success they want. This is one reason I coach and train entrepreneurs worldwide. I want to make sure others who do want to achieve their dreams have access to the help to get them there.

When you look at most successful entrepreneurs, there is a strong inner drive which powers these four traits. The inner drive brings these four traits together is your ‘why’. When your ‘why’ is strong enough and big enough, the other traits fall in line more easily. Your ‘why’ creates and energizes the determination, dedication, self-discipline and effort to power your success train.

Take the time to find your ‘why’ now. Being clear in yours is one of the surest ways to achieve any dream.

Do It Different!
