Do you have a nice simple dream? Do you have a simple little project you want to undertake? Do you have that thing you have always wanted to get done? The best way to get started is to get started, but do not confuse simple with easy. Simple does not mean easy. A simple idea does not mean you get a free pass to snap your fingers and wait for magic to happen. Simple means simple; but if living your dream was easy everyone would do it.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not telling you to make this complicated just to make this complicated. Anything worth doing is worth doing well and to the best of your ability. You can keep your ideas simple, but do not mistake that with meaning they will be easy to attain. Most of the time you still need to be able to build on your dreams, you need to build on your goals and you need to build on your talents. You may have to get around people who have done the things you want to do and reached the goals you want to reach. Don’t be afraid to ask for help even though you may have a simple idea.
You see simple and easy are not the same thing. Surfing the Internet is easy. Creating the internet was very complicated. Also the first versions of the internet and web service and computer hardware and web browsers were complicated. It took a long time for the internet to become as simple as going to any coffee-house and logging into the “Facebook” or checking “Twitter.” Simple does not mean easy. The first mistake people make in thinking simple means easy is not respecting all the work it takes to make things look easy.
Exercising and lifting weights is simple. Becoming a champion athlete is hard. Playing guitar is simple, but learning to play a guitar well is hard. Basic Electronics are simple. Coming up with a new invention is hard. Simple means simple, but to get good at something it still takes practice and patience and persistence. It will get easier over time, but it does not mean it will be easy all the time.
Lots of times the people who make things look easy have practiced and planned and rehearsed until it seemed easy to the untrained eye. Case in point, the most basic simple idea is getting people to work together. Now, is that easy? Have you tried? Getting people to work together can be very rewarding, but it is not always an easy thing to do. Again, have you tried it? People sometimes have a tendency to make things harder than necessary. Sometime people complicate things for any number of reasons. Sometimes people make things complicated just to prove themselves right.
One of the basic ways to keep things simple is to just keep things simple. Do not make things more complicated than they need to become. Find one thing that people can agree on and give it a try. Keep it simple. Keep it basic. Staying on track and reaching your goals is hard enough. Why make things harder than needed? Just remember, simple does not guarantee things will be easy.
What is my point? Don’t think that because your idea may be simple that it will be easy. Also don’t make things complicated, just keep things simple. Give your ideas and dreams the respect they deserve and if they are worth it, they are worth working towards. If your ideas, goals and dreams are worth doing, it is worth it to keep learning and practicing and getting better to reach your goals. Keep them simple, but do not assume they will be easy.
Seven Easy Steps to Success, yes it is that easy. No this is not a Twelve Step Program, this is 60 Seconds of Motivational Mojo. I am here to encourage you. I am here to chase my dreams. I am here to get you to chase your dreams. I am not a carbon copy of someone else’s ideas. I study, I ponder, I resolve in my mind, I add my own voice. These are my Seven Easy Steps to Success: Dream, Ponder, Speak, Act, Practice, Improve, Succeed
Now let me retract that statement about Seven Easy Steps, these steps are easy to say; but it is up to you to do them: Dream, Ponder, Speak, Act, Practice, Improve, Succeed. Start by dreaming, start by seeing what it is you want to be doing. It is not about what you want to have, it is about the dream you had when you were a kid, before you understood work and bills and all the stuff life throws at you. This is about seeing clearly how your talents and purpose line up. You have to see it for yourself first. I can not see it for you, and you can not see it for me. This is the easiest step, and yet so many people can not remember what they have always dreamed about doing.
Seven Easy Steps to Success: Dream, Ponder, Speak, Act, Practice, Improve, Succeed: Ponder, think about your dream. How do you fit into this dream based on where you are right now in your life? Do not attempt to live vicariously through your children, or be lost in a haze of watching other people live their dreams in Movies, on Television, on Stage, in a Book or at a Sporting Event. This is your chance to break your daydreams down into ideas. This is your dream, not someone else’s dream. Ponder, think about how you can spend a little bit of each day or each week living a part of your dream. This about doing not having, remember you have to do this for yourself.
Seven Easy Steps to Success: Dream, Ponder, Speak, Act, Practice, Improve, Succeed: Think before you speak. Simple rules, simple live lessons; if you have spent some time Dreaming and Pondering do not be afraid to Speak about your Dream. Talk to people until you find people who think and dream the same way you do. Do not worry if people make fun of your dream, they may not have a dream they are chasing. Now listen to this one piece of advice, if you speak to someone about your dream and they say you are dreaming; it is a compliment. You are dreaming remember, but now you are in the third step of that dream. You are talking about it.
Seven Easy Steps to Success: Dream, Ponder, Speak, Act, Practice, Improve, Succeed: Act, this may be on of the hardest and most frustrating steps of success. To Act, to be or not to be, that is the question. You have to act, you have to create the action that will attract the right people who can help your reach your dream. None of us do it alone, and none of us do it overnight. You have seen it, you have thought about it, you have talked about it, now it is time to build it. Build it and they will come.
Seven Easy Steps to Success: Dream, Ponder, Speak, Act, Practice, Improve, Succeed: Practice makes perfect. If your dream is worth while, you will have to practice. No one wakes up one day goes to a basket ball court for the first time and sinks a basket and is then immediately called up by a professional team and gets to quit their day job all in one day. If you have seen it or heard of it, it was a movie or television show. If your dream is worth doing, then it is worth practicing. Now, learn to have fun while you practice, learn to work with other people while you practice. You are half way there. This stage is half the battle. You are half way home, do not give up now. Do not let what other people are saying or doing keep you from practicing what it is you want to do. Develop positive habits that will help you reach your dream one day.
Seven Easy Steps to Success: Dream, Ponder, Speak, Act, Practice, Improve, Succeed: Improve; this might be the trickiest step for most people. If you did not need to get better at anything, you would already be living your dream and you would not be reading this post. Can you step back and look at your strengths and your weaknesses? Will you allow yourself to be coached to the next level? Can you coach someone else so they can reach their dreams? Again, this is the hardest step in the process. Do you know where you fit in and where you can get better? Do you know how you can best help your team win? There are many people who work in the background to make other people look better. Are you comfortable working behind the scenes on successful teams or projects? No one can answer this for you; you have to be willing to understand how and where you fit in to the big picture.
Seven Easy Steps to Success: Dream, Ponder, Speak, Act, Practice, Improve, Succeed: Success; so easy to say, so hard to do. The hardest thing to figure about success is how do you measure success? Is it having more free time to do the things you love? Is it being paid to do something you love instead of paying someone to do it as a hobby? Is it making the most money or winning the most games? What is success? To me, success is anything that helps bring you one step closer to your goals and dreams. Success is a series of small wins that lead to big wins. Sports teams do not win a championship at the start of a season. They win and lose games and hopefully put themselves in place to be there at the end when the championship is decided. Life long dreams are not won or lost in one day, they are built upon one day at a time. You will win some, you will lose some along the way. Reward the small wins, improve after small loses; but learn to track your progress. This may take more thinking, more acting, more practice and more improvement. You may have to speak positive and assuring words to yourself and your team; you can not short cut this process. Dream, Ponder, Speak, Act, Practice, Improve, Succeed; Seven Easy Steps to Success
