Now that you have thought about what motivates you, roll with it! The next step is to set goals and think about dreams. If you don’t have a goal then you are walking around blind and are destined to end up somewhere you didn’t intend to. “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I’ll spend four sharpening the axe” George Washington. You need a plan, but for now just think about the result. What is your dream life or dream scenario? Let’s say you want be rich living in California and the most ripped guy on the beach. I will never be the person to tell you to set “realistic” goals and dreams. Every great and new thing started out as a crazy idea that most people did not believe in but lucky you, I believe in you. For now though, let’s keep it simple and set a physical goal that extends from the dream. For example: “I want to be ripped and have a six pack.” Great, you now have a focus but when should you start working on it? Right here and right now no excuses. There is nothing stopping you, I don’t want to hear that you don’t have time or you are to tired, if you want to dream big then you better damn work for it. Your dream is only achievable through hard work and consistency so, dream big and put the effort in! Worst thing that can happen if you work hard and fail to meet your goals: pain. But you need to understand that pain is a great thing. The pain you feel when you set huge goals and fail to complete them can be exactly what you need to take that next step. (Read article: “Pain and Embracing the Darkness” to see what I mean). Now you have your homework, think about where you want your life to go, how your going to get there, and then get started!
