What’s Your Dream?
What is your dream? What is your American dream that you want to fulfill, if you live here in America? What is your dream you just want to achieve, to aspire to be, to be the best that you can be, to know what you are good at, and what you can do? What is it you achieve to be? What do you hope to be? A superstar that you know you can rock at and be good at, and that you know you will enjoy for the rest of your whole entire life? What do you hope to be? What do you wish to be in the future?
Have you ever watched the movie Pretty Woman, in which you see the African-American walking across the street in the beginning and the ending of the movie, where he goes, “What’s your dream?” What do you want to aspire to be? What’s your dream, and who do you want to be? That’s what inspired this post.
Everybody wants to live the American dream, so what is your American dream that you want to achieve? If you don’t live in America yet, and you want to be in America, and you’re watching, what is your dream that you want to have in order to be able to know that you have your freedom and your time? How would you want to spend it?
The American dream – what does it mean to you? What would you want to aspire to be to know that you are living a free life, to know that you are living the best possible dream that you could ever have in your whole entire lifetime, to know that you’d be able to pay for everything, the American dream in which you want to be able to aspire to be the best that you can be, in which you hope to be able to pay everything off, even bills, and to be able to go on vacation.
The American dream. What is it that you want to achieve, and how do you want to achieve it? Do you know how you want to achieve it? Baby steps equal progression, and progression equals success. What are your baby steps that you know that you have to take, or know that you are willing to take, and the sacrifices that you have to make along the way to be able to achieve that American dream? Baby steps will include the steps in which you know you have to be able to take.
Baby steps equals progression equals success. In order to get through those baby steps, you must be willing to take sacrifices and also must be willing to be able to get through your frustrations. You must also be able to get through the obstacles. You must be able to get through the pain. You must be able to get through a lot of enduring tears and sadness and frustration to get through those baby steps, in which you will endure along the way, to be able to get to that success and that American dream that you so want to live for and get to?
What do you do to get through those baby steps? You must have a plan of action, in which you must be able to write down in a goal-setting journal. That way you know when you have succeeded in one step, you can cross it off, work on the next baby step, and keep going through that list until you have gotten through those baby steps, and that list and cross each one off as you get through the next one, the next one, and the next one.
Baby steps equal progression. Progression is the continuous and persistence hard work that put you through blood, sweat, and tears to be able to get through those baby steps, to be able to progress and move forward. Progression is the succeeding in obstacles in which you will progress through and work through – through your blood, sweat, and tears – to be able to get through your baby steps and your obstacles, to be able to pass through the progression, to move on to be successful, and what you hope to be, in which you hope to attain, in which you hope to achieve.
In being able to achieve that successful, aspiring person that you want to be, in which you hope to become, you must be able to believe in yourself. You must be able to work through the sacrifices and work through the pain and work through the tears and through the frustrations. In order to work through all those pain, frustrations, and tears, you must be willing to sacrifice something in order to get to where you want to go and who you want to be. Kind of like who you want to become – a phrase that Ray Higdon always says. “Who do you want to become?”
There’s a quote in which he says in his coaching program and which has been engrained into my mind about how pain pushes you, vision pulls you forward. It’s by Dr. Michael Beckwith. Because of that quote, it has envisioned me to be the best that I can be at what I can possibly do. I hope with that quote, pain pushes you and vision pulls you forward, and it will be able to help you be able to progress into what you can possibly be, and push you forward into your dreams, in which you want to become.
The next best thing that you can do for yourself in becoming a successful person, is to be able to believe and have all the confidence in the world. That no matter what life might throw at you, you will just punch right back at it and knock it down and just keep going back up, until you’re able to achieve that successful life that you want to have, which is the American dream.
What is your dream? Who do you want to become? What is your dream mean to you? What will you be able to punch through life, to get through your obstacles and your sacrifices, to be able to get through those struggles and get back up, and to be able to get through to a successful life that you want to live.
As you go through those baby steps, and you progress to punch forward in life and punch back out at all those obstacles that may come at you, just keep getting back up, be consistent, be persistent, be the best person that you can possibly be, be the rock star that you are, and succeed to the best living life that you could possibly live for today, tomorrow, and your future.
Be the best person you know you can possibly be. Be the best person and the best consistent and the most persistent person you can be, so that way you can be as successful as you can possibly be and achieve those highest dreams in which you ever envisioned in your whole entire life.
Who is it you want to become? What do you want to achieve? What about those dreams in which you never thought you would be able to get through or achieve? What would you possibly think that you cannot think of achieving until you try it? To be able to try for your dreams, you must be able to have the belief within yourself. To try at least first, don’t say, “These are not my dreams. This is not meant for me,” until you try. You have to try before you knock yourself down and before you think that you can’t do it. You have to try. You have to be able to believe in yourself to try. The next time that you feel that you have a dream and you want to achieve it, you must be able to at least try.
There is a quote out there in which says, “There is always an accomplishment and willingness to try,” or something like that. The next time that you have a dream, and you don’t think you have the gusto, and you don’t think you have the willingness or determination to try, just try; just do it. If you don’t do it, you will never know that you can have a successful life or a successful dream in which you feel that you can achieve, and you won’t get it.
You have to try, because if you don’t try, you won’t feel that you would be successful because you never tried. So, just try; just do it, like Nike says. Take that sneaker, put it on, and then kick out at those words “Just do it” and break down those words. Do it until they smash right through it, and be able to just do it.
Baby steps. Progression. Success. Just do it. Just try keep on trying. Keep on punching out at life. I’m a martial artist, so I always want to say punch out at life, if you didn’t know that already, just punch back at life. So, as a martial artist would say punch back at life, knock down those doors.
As Dwayne Johnson would say, “once your feet are on the floor just say oh shit, I’m up already.” And then there’s the other one where it says when opportunity knocks at you, just beat down that door and get back in and get back up or something like that. It’s a Dwayne Johnson quote where you have the feet on the floor and busting through doors. Keep on walking and punching down that door and kicking it in and the opportunity will come fly back at you.
The best dreams and the best successes that you will ever have, is the ones in which you try, is the ones in which you want to accomplish to try, and the ones that you can think of and imagine of and what you want to be able to willing to work on and sacrifice on and beat down those doors when those struggles come through. Then when opportunity comes, just take it and yank it and just keep going and chugging along until you get it.
I have a lot of dreams, and one of them is to be a martial art screenwriter and work with Jerry Bruckheimer someday and Jet Li, of course, because I’m in love with Jet Li and Bon Jovi. My other aspiring dream is to get Your Life Matters Foundation up.
What are your dreams? What are your aspirations? Who do you want to become?
Just think of it this way, the next time that you want to be able to live your dream life, envision yourself onto of how you want to be able to achieve that life. Write it down. Go through those baby steps. Keep kicking away at the progress. Kick out those obstacles and just keep moving and pushing on forward. I hope you got value from this, and I hope that you are able to get past some of those obstacles in which you might be facing. That way you can get onto work on those dreams of yours.
Envision yourself to have a vision and keep going forward until you’re able to make that vision of yours come true.
As that guy said at the beginning and end of Julia Roberts’ Pretty Woman movie, the guy goes, “What’s your dream?” as he’s walking across the street, then you want to ask yourself, “What’s your dream?”
I hope that your dreams will come true. I hope that these baby steps and these progression steps will be able to get you through and to be able to be the rock star superstar that you hope to be, should be, and want to be in your future. Think of it this way, who do you want to become?
Pain pushes you, and vision propels you forward. – Dr. Michael Beckwith
Who do you want to become? – Ray Higdon
Don’t deny your emotions as you’re going through these dreams of yours. You will have many emotions running through you, and you will have many fears running through you. Just keep pushing forward. Believe in yourself. Be the best that you can be. Just have confidence in yourself. Know that you are able to do it, and nothing can stop you. See the most confident person you can ever be. Believe in yourself. Stay true to who you are.
Be original. The best you can do for yourself is to be original. Originality is the best key to your success. Branding yourself is the best key to your success, in order to be the best person that you can be. Do not deny your emotions. Sometimes even though your emotions will get to you, do not think that they will keep you in the past, because when you deny your emotions, you won’t keep going forward and propelling yourself forward.
Dream, successes, and confidence. You must also have self-esteem and know that your valued and you are valuable to the world, that you have the ability to be able to spread as much value to the world as you possibly can. You have a voice. You are meant to be heard. You have a story. You should tell your story to everyone and share it. You can find people who have the same similarities as you, and you’ll be able to have that success with those people who share the same similarities with you as well.
The next best thing that you can possibly have for yourself is to be able to get through those hard times with those people who you connect with, have the same similarities with yourself, and be the rock star and superstar that you are. The best possible thing that you can possibly do for yourself is to have confidence within yourself and self-esteem. You must be able to know that you have value that you can spread to others, and what you feel is important enough and can be able to have impact in the world. When you know you have impact, and you can have impact on other people, then you know that you are the most valuable person that you can ever be, especially when people tell you that you are.
When you find those other people who share the same dreams as you, who share the same aspirations as you, you can meet up with them and you can talk with them. It’s the most amazing feeling and spiritual essence that you can have within yourself. It’s finding the same people who have the same dreams and have the same aspirations. So, as success takes you further into your dreams, into your aspirations, know that you’re able to be the best person you can be.
