...bring any dream to life. Now, maybe in the past you've tried to achieve something and you just two stepsforward, three steps back. You've got a couple goals that ended up backon the shelf because you have tried it, he just couldn't get that traction.Today's going to give you the recipe of what it really takes to bringa dream to life.

All guys, let's jumpright into this these ingredients for goals and achieving goals right now. The firstthing you need if you want to cheat any level of greatness and bring anydream to life is your goal needs to be legendary, and here's what Imean 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 besomething that you, when you think about it, you get kind of equalparts of excitement because it's equal parts dread. It should push you out of thecomfort zone. And here's why, when you study people who achieved greatthings, they never aimed small. They always aim big. Now, youmight be say, will patch that scares me. Let what if I don'tknow 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 whatyou 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 visionon what you want, and that thing needs to be that has some meaton it. Right. No one goes crazy after the goal of losing fivepounds, but defty pounds transforming your life. That is a goal worth pursuing andfinding something legendary. So I think something that's worth pursuing for you isgoing 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 youwere, let's be on, you were selling yourself short from what you trulywanted. That may have been one of the reasons that it didn't work outfor you enough. Course, within this you have to be able to picturevery vividly and clearly what it is that you want. Your goal in additionto being legendary, also has to be electric. I mean you got tofeel it in your bones, you got to feel that passion flowing. Iknow 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 juiceat 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 somethingthat does not depend on external things. I'm gonna say it again. Yourreason, your why, your fuel in the tank that's going to carry youthrough the duration of the journey cannot be something that's shortlived. It's got tobe long burn fuel, and the only...

...thing that I and my colleagues andany of the research will show you that people have found that will carry peoplethrough is a purpose driven reason, a passion, a understanding and part ofthe vision that you formed the beginning of who benefits if I bring this tolife? How will this a positively affect other people? Maybe you will inspirechildren 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 feellike you're on this planet. You need to find a reason big enough topush you through the adversity that is probably going to come your way, becauseanyone worth or salt will tell you it's climbing the mountain of spirit. Thisis an easy stuff. I mean the only the bold and brave usually makeit through because of the tribulations of trialser on the reason. You got tofind a reason electric enough, passion enough, got enough juice in it to carrythroughout the duration of the journey,...

...and that's actually something we cover andhow to find that reason in both our illuminate and elevate programs which, ifyou if you haven't seen live, and I'll put a button here when they'realive, 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 isjuicy, it's good, something you've been wanting and and you get that clearvision of it and you have your reason or reasons not why you could doit. Not Maybe we can all do many things, not all. Youshould do it for you personally, why you must do this, and dothis now, at the season of your life. But even the greatest visionsand even the greatest passions fall flat, and the reason that they fall flatis because there's nothing. It's missing. You, your goal has to befeared to go, it has to be strategic, it has to be atsomething that's designed to get traction. I mean, I can't tell you thenumber of times that I've tried to go after something I didn't have the rightstrategy, I didn't know the industry well...

...enough. There's so much you didn'tknow and might in the descent of my learning curve and sometimes I never learnedit and I just felt that no matter how much vision, how much passionI have, it just couldn't give me through this third block which I wasfelt like I was just spinning my wheels, my legs were titling a hundred milesan hour, but there was no traction, nothing was going, andthat's because I did not have a strategy, I didn't have a map theres goingto 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 andsay? If you're a person who has visions and dreams, goals you wantto 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 justhaven't got traction on it, one of the big reasons is because youjust didn't have the right strategy. That was it wasn't about you. WasNot what you're capable of. Your capable extraordinary things, my friend. Itcould 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 wantan a map, that led you to your target. So what I wouldsay is, if you didn't have the right strategy, get back on thatsaddle if you need to, just a little nudge and a push. Getthe right strategy this time, and part of our elevate program that we're comingout with soon is helping you build that strategy, proven map to get youfrom where you are to where you want to be. So again, I'llpost that above with with an eye button when that's ready. But let's keepgoing. You've got a goal, it's clear in your mind. You getthe passion, you've got the right strategy. You might say, Patrick, I'vegot everything I need. Not yet. Hang with me. Your goal,if it's going to become real needs to be activated, and what Imean by activate is it means it's got to have momentum. You've got tobuild the systems, that habits and the disciplines that bring your dream and goalto life. Guys, this isn't something...

...that, even if you had themwith the most perfect strategy, the most perfect map that would literally gave youall the steps. If you have not build the systems, the habits,the rituals that get you consistently moving towards that thing, then you will notachieve it. If you talk to anyone who's written a book, they saysomething to the effect of this. I didn't set a goal to write abook. I set a goal to right one hundred pages. Are we allyou know when hundred words or that I was in words a day or twentyparagraphs a day, or whatever it was. I set a goal to just getthe 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 youneed 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 answerthis question. What's one thing, one simple thing that I can do thatwould make the daily progress towards this thing...

...easy. But it be a checklistfor you. I mean we use them. We use habit trackers and performance trackersas part of our programs that were building. Maybe you've tried that inthe past and it worked out for you. Just that simple check mark every daygives you that little feedback because as I did it, I did it, I did it. So Hey, you've got your again, going backto 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 beanything else. Yes, I promise you. There's two more. This is whatthis is a big one. committed. You've got to be committed to thisthing, and what I mean by that this is coming down to mindsetand 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'sthe truth. Every journey that it's worth taking, every goal that you setout to achieve. There is this part...

...in the middle. Some people callthe messy middle, some people call the value of despair, I called thedesert. It's this place in the middle where your your furthest from where youstarted with that initial excitement and motivation and raw ra was right. You wereenthusiastic in the beginning and it was like, but then that kind of wears offas you get to this Middle Place where your furthest from where you startedand also furthest from where you want to go, and everything just feels likea grind, it just feels like work, it just feels like Ah, justconstant, right in those spaces where all your juice can be sucked outof you, when you're probably going to run into your biggest fears, biggestresistance, your biggest failures. You know, fall flat on your face. Iprobably know it sounds like. Oh, Patrick, you to the bearer ofgood news. I'M gonna fall flight on my face. Your it's goingto you're good. Something's gonna Happen. Always something happens. If you havea something that's happened to you that caught you by surprise, let me knowin 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 ofclose 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 habitslined up in the systems and the environment. You are committed and resolute. Yousay yes, I'm going to do this, no matter how many timesyou try to publish your book and someone tells you know, no matter howmany obstacles and the outside you run into and how many obstacles in the insideyou run into, you are committed. There's one more thing, probably themost personal thing of this whole process. Maybe, maybe this for you,was the reason that you just you had all the ingredients, but something justwasn't firing for you and you pulled back on it. Here's why the DreamMust Be Yours. It's kind of be yours. I mean, so manyof 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, youknow, 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 goalscome to life, if you want...

...to build a legacy, and we'vebeen only an acorn in this whole time. I know some of you caught itearly. That legacy that you're going to build is good. I mustbe yours and must come from your inner fire if it's at ever going tobe 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 kindof inspires and informs everything kind of up the chain. I will say thisfrom a humble place. There's, there is, there's one more is weneed to be around excellent stairs to people now, excellent community, because whenyou fall down, you have someone to pick you up, dust your shouldersoff and say it's okay. I know, I know you got some scars andsome bumps from that. I know of people told you know. Iknow you open the doors your program and no one showed up. I knowall this stuff happen, but keep going. You got to be around good,good people who are on a path similar to yours, who can inspireyou 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 thatI've been around. So, speaking of good people, and this is I'mmaybe seen this little early, but we again, we are forming a communityaround entrepreneurs and creates, following the inner fire. We're going to call thesoul fire community. It's going to be launching soon. Still picking the networkand what social aspects. I want to build this on platforms, but we'reabsolutely building a community of passionate goal getters who will can support each other alongtheir road. So, if that's you, when we launch, I'll be cantkeep watching the channel, subscribe below. I'll be giving guys more news andnotifications than that and I hope, my friend, that you get backon the path toward the goals and dreams that you deserve, because the worldneeds 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 happiestheights and the road you travel belne with lights. We'll see you nexttime.
