My Name is Patrick and on today's episode we are talking about goals and dreams and what it really takes from the inside out to...

...bring any dream to life. Now, maybe in the past you've tried to achieve something and you just two steps forward, three steps back. You've got a couple goals that ended up back on the shelf because you have tried it, he just couldn't get that traction.

All guys, let's jump right into this these ingredients for goals and achieving goals right now. The first thing you need if you want to cheat any level of greatness and bring any dream to life is your goal needs to be legendary, and here's what I mean by that. The goal has to be big enough, old enough, aimed high enough where it's scares you just...

...a little bit. It should be something that you, when you think about it, you get kind of equal parts of excitement because it's equal parts dread. It should push you out of the comfort zone. And here's why, when you study people who achieved great things, they never aimed small. They always aim big. Now, you might be say, will patch that scares me. Let what if I don't know how to do it? Well, let's save the how for a second. Are you aiming for what you really want? Are you aiming for what you deserve now not, are you aiming for what you know how to do? Because, let's be honest, you'll figure it out. Your smart person, you'll figure it out, but first you got to have your clear vision on what you want, and that thing needs to be that has some meat on it. Right. No one goes crazy after the goal of losing five pounds, but defty pounds transforming your life. That is a goal worth pursuing and finding something legendary. So I think something that's worth pursuing for you is going to be the reason to get you out of bed and keep it going. So if you have try to set...

...goals in the past, but you were, let's be on, you were selling yourself short from what you truly wanted. That may have been one of the reasons that it didn't work out for you enough. Course, within this you have to be able to picture very vividly and clearly what it is that you want. Your goal in addition to being legendary, also has to be electric. I mean you got to feel it in your bones, you got to feel that passion flowing. I know that some people said, well, you got to find your why. I I feel like some people have said that it's kind of lost at juice at this point. Let me be very clear on what we mean by this. You got to have a reason so strong that it is fueled from something that does not depend on external things. I'm gonna say it again. Your reason, your why, your fuel in the tank that's going to carry you through the duration of the journey cannot be something that's shortlived. It's got to be long burn fuel, and the only...

...thing that I and my colleagues and any of the research will show you that people have found that will carry people through is a purpose driven reason, a passion, a understanding and part of the vision that you formed the beginning of who benefits if I bring this to life? How will this a positively affect other people? Maybe you will inspire children just watching you go after it. Maybe your reason, maybe your why, it's something that's even more connected to your soul, the reason you feel like you're on this planet. You need to find a reason big enough to push you through the adversity that is probably going to come your way, because anyone worth or salt will tell you it's climbing the mountain of spirit. This is an easy stuff. I mean the only the bold and brave usually make it through because of the tribulations of trialser on the reason. You got to find a reason electric enough, passion enough, got enough juice in it to carry throughout the duration of the journey,...

...and that's actually something we cover and how to find that reason in both our illuminate and elevate programs which, if you if you haven't seen live, and I'll put a button here when they're alive, are coming soon to help people find that passion, that reason. So let's say you've got a big goal in mind, something that scares is juicy, it's good, something you've been wanting and and you get that clear vision of it and you have your reason or reasons not why you could do it. Not Maybe we can all do many things, not all. You should do it for you personally, why you must do this, and do this now, at the season of your life. But even the greatest visions and even the greatest passions fall flat, and the reason that they fall flat is because there's nothing. It's missing. You, your goal has to be feared to go, it has to be strategic, it has to be at something that's designed to get traction. I mean, I can't tell you the number of times that I've tried to go after something I didn't have the right strategy, I didn't know the industry well...

...enough. There's so much you didn't know and might in the descent of my learning curve and sometimes I never learned it and I just felt that no matter how much vision, how much passion I have, it just couldn't give me through this third block which I was felt like I was just spinning my wheels, my legs were titling a hundred miles an hour, but there was no traction, nothing was going, and that's because I did not have a strategy, I didn't have a map theres going to get me from where I was to where I want to be. Maybe that's where you've been faulted. So what I want to pause here and say? If you're a person who has visions and dreams, goals you want to achieve for your life, awesome. I hope you wrote them down to. If you've got the reasons for it, which is amazing, and you just haven't got traction on it, one of the big reasons is because you just didn't have the right strategy. That was it wasn't about you. Was Not what you're capable of. Your capable extraordinary things, my friend. It could have has been you weren't following the...

...right map. Right you bought. You bought a Janky math. It led you over there and when you want an a map, that led you to your target. So what I would say is, if you didn't have the right strategy, get back on that saddle if you need to, just a little nudge and a push. Get the right strategy this time, and part of our elevate program that we're coming out with soon is helping you build that strategy, proven map to get you from where you are to where you want to be. So again, I'll post that above with with an eye button when that's ready. But let's keep going. You've got a goal, it's clear in your mind. You get the passion, you've got the right strategy. You might say, Patrick, I've got everything I need. Not yet. Hang with me. Your goal, if it's going to become real needs to be activated, and what I mean by activate is it means it's got to have momentum. You've got to build the systems, that habits and the disciplines that bring your dream and goal to life. Guys, this isn't something...

...that, even if you had them with the most perfect strategy, the most perfect map that would literally gave you all the steps. If you have not build the systems, the habits, the rituals that get you consistently moving towards that thing, then you will not achieve it. If you talk to anyone who's written a book, they say something to the effect of this. I didn't set a goal to write a book. I set a goal to right one hundred pages. Are we all you know when hundred words or that I was in words a day or twenty paragraphs a day, or whatever it was. I set a goal to just get the momentum moving and build the habits and systems that got me there. Part of the thing you need to do to get this thing activated is you need to make it easy. Whatever that goal you had in your heart, held in your mind when you started this video, I want you something answer this question. What's one thing, one simple thing that I can do that would make the daily progress towards this thing...

...easy. But it be a checklist for you. I mean we use them. We use habit trackers and performance trackers as part of our programs that were building. Maybe you've tried that in the past and it worked out for you. Just that simple check mark every day gives you that little feedback because as I did it, I did it, I did it. So Hey, you've got your again, going back to the recipe, you got a big goal. It frightens a little bit. It's scares you a little bit, but in a really good way. You've got your passion, you've got your reason, you've got the strategy, you've got the habits lined up, let's say, Patrick. The can't be anything else. Yes, I promise you. There's two more. This is what this is a big one. committed. You've got to be committed to this thing, and what I mean by that this is coming down to mindset and heart set. You've got to say to yourself, I will do this. You've got to make that key internal commitment to yourself, because is here's the truth. Every journey that it's worth taking, every goal that you set out to achieve. There is this part...

...in the middle. Some people call the messy middle, some people call the value of despair, I called the desert. It's this place in the middle where your your furthest from where you started with that initial excitement and motivation and raw ra was right. You were enthusiastic in the beginning and it was like, but then that kind of wears off as you get to this Middle Place where your furthest from where you started and also furthest from where you want to go, and everything just feels like a grind, it just feels like work, it just feels like Ah, just constant, right in those spaces where all your juice can be sucked out of you, when you're probably going to run into your biggest fears, biggest resistance, your biggest failures. You know, fall flat on your face. I probably know it sounds like. Oh, Patrick, you to the bearer of good news. I'M gonna fall flight on my face. Your it's going to you're good. Something's gonna Happen. Always something happens. If you have a something that's happened to you that caught you by surprise, let me know in the comments below. But I'm more important. How did you overcome it? I'd be curious to hear from you. There's one more just to kind of close this out. You've got your goal. It's big, it's clear, it's energized it. You got the...

...right strategy. You've got the habits lined up in the systems and the environment. You are committed and resolute. You say yes, I'm going to do this, no matter how many times you try to publish your book and someone tells you know, no matter how many obstacles and the outside you run into and how many obstacles in the inside you run into, you are committed. There's one more thing, probably the most personal thing of this whole process. Maybe, maybe this for you, was the reason that you just you had all the ingredients, but something just wasn't firing for you and you pulled back on it. Here's why the Dream Must Be Yours. It's kind of be yours. I mean, so many of us sometimes are following dreams and goals that aren't even ours to begin with. We went to med school not because we want to, because, you know, our parents wanted us to, or we went in this direction. We went after something just because someone was pushing on us to do it, but it really wasn't ours to begin with. If you want to see your goals come to life, if you want...

...to build a legacy, and we've been only an acorn in this whole time. I know some of you caught it early. That legacy that you're going to build is good. I must be yours and must come from your inner fire if it's at ever going to be something that you're going to push through all this stuff. They get there. In fact, if once it's yours truly from the beginning, that kind of inspires and informs everything kind of up the chain. I will say this from a humble place. There's, there is, there's one more is we need to be around excellent stairs to people now, excellent community, because when you fall down, you have someone to pick you up, dust your shoulders off and say it's okay. I know, I know you got some scars and some bumps from that. I know of people told you know. I know you open the doors your program and no one showed up. I know all this stuff happen, but keep going. You got to be around good, good people who are on a path similar to yours, who can inspire you encourage you and you can look to and lean on. In fact, I have really become the person I am...

...today as results the good people that I've been around. So, speaking of good people, and this is I'm maybe seen this little early, but we again, we are forming a community around entrepreneurs and creates, following the inner fire. We're going to call the soul fire community. It's going to be launching soon. Still picking the network and what social aspects. I want to build this on platforms, but we're absolutely building a community of passionate goal getters who will can support each other along their road. So, if that's you, when we launch, I'll be cant keep watching the channel, subscribe below. I'll be giving guys more news and notifications than that and I hope, my friend, that you get back on the path toward the goals and dreams that you deserve, because the world needs a gift that you have. So, without further ado, as always, I'm going to give you an ending. May the fire within be the happiest heights and the road you travel belne with lights. We'll see you next time.
