How to Make Your Dreams Come True

If you’re like me then you have dreams and goals, things that you want to achieve in your business and personal life. Today I’m going to let you in on a hot tip on how to turn them into reality, here it is:

Fall in love with the process, not the dream.

Now when I heard this I was stopped in my tracks, I went wow, that is profound. All too often we fall in love with want we want to have, whether it’s that dream job, that dream business deal or the old classic more money. The problem is if we’re focused just on what we want, and not what we need to do to get it then we may never reach it.

We absolutely want to keep our goals in mind as a reference point, but we need to be taking the actions to get us there. Plus here’s where this saying goes into overdrive, if you’re in love with the process of making the dream a reality is it easier or harder to do? Of course it’s easier, you’re going to be more in the flow and more aligned with what you’re doing.

Of course there will be obstacles on the way to our goal, but the more we can be in love with the process of achieving it the more easily we will reach it.

I wish you all the best in making your dreams come true.

Rock Band Rocks

So last weekend I got the boys around for a round of Rock Band – if you haven’t played it I highly recommend it. In essence it’s a console game with electric guitars/drums and microphone and you can play classic Rock Songs together.

We had the full kit so one person on drums, one on guitar, one on bass and one fantastic singer ;) . The difference of four players over 1, 2 or 3 is actually quite extreme because when one person is in overdrive (playing like a Rock God) it gives you a big boost to your stats and you can play at a much harder level than you normally would.

I won’t reveal the identities of the other players (you know who you are ;) but the standout performances for me were GB on drums playing Rock Away Beach on Expert – I haven’t managed to do it on Medium yet! RP playing bass with mucho groove time and JT singing Are You Gonna Be My Girl.

Thanks guys that was a whole lotta fun.
