1st: Define Your Dreams

nothing happens unless for we dream by carl sandburg porter strong life leadershipPorter Strong is a Life Leadership Team currently focusing on dreaming big. Life Leadership is an all inclusive array of informational products, services and life coaching to train members in succeeding at LIFE! It’s Life Training for anyone who wakes up in the morning and experiences that split second of confusion before they’re fully awake, “Wait…is this my life? This isn’t how it was supposed to be.”

Realizing your dreams is a never ending process, but it’s also an easily identifiable one:

You define. You learn. You do.

Many feel that they are limited in what they can do because of an income that is overwhelmingly small in comparison to the mass of debts, mortgage or rent payments, car payments, retirement savings contributions, etc. The expenditures eat up what you make before you’ve even decided what you want to use it for. If you’ve ever felt trapped in a negative cycle that deprives you of the choice of what you want to do with your life, your money, your family because that choices all seem so limited or even forced, you’re ready for the first step.

The First Step: DEFINE

It might be the most important step you make in your journey to success. You have to come up with a clear definition of what success looks like for you and your family – define the life that you want to live. Start by asking yourself these questions so you can build a clear definition of your future. Success can be yours…and it starts here with a dream and the power of visualization.

dreams are the touchstones of our character henry david thoreau porter strong life leadership

  • What do you most value in life? 
  • How would financial success increase your enjoyment of these priorities/enhance your involvement? 
  • If you died today, are there things you would wish you had done? A specific trip? An activity? An accomplishment? 
  • Think of the next five years, what level of income would you like to attain in that time period? 
  • What charities or causes could you give more money or time to? 
  • What “rewards” would you enjoy indulging in? (i.e. cars, houses, vacations, boats, luxuries, etc.)

If you knew you could not fail…what would you do?

Now, get serious about your dreams. Get out a sheet of paper or a notebook you can dedicate to dream visualization and crate 6 categories:

  1. Financial
  2. Charity
  3. Travel
  4. Family
  5. Material
  6. Legacy

Considering your answers to the questions above, create a detailed and honest list of your dreams for each of the areas and you’ll have a clear understanding of what you want out of life. You have a definition of what success looks like to you. Next step, learn. Coming soon!
