You Can Achieve Your Dreams

You Can Achieve Your Dreams

Running faster on a hamster wheel won’t get you off of it.

Stop too suddenly and you’ll hurt yourself.

This is the dilemma many people face in life: They find themselves locked into something that’s not what they’re truly seeking. They want change, but just can’t see how it’s possible. They’re in too deep.

The solution?

Start slowing down… gently.

While you’re slowing down, search within and figure out what you truly want to do — what energizes you? what fulfills you? what lights you up?

Perhaps this is the first time in your life you’ve ever thought about these questions in depth…

(Hint: Think on paper.)

Your dream life begins with clarity on what you love doing and who you love being. The next step is figuring out how to monetize that. Finally, you start doing what you love.. You deliver it to the world.

Being financially rewarded for doing what you love… Can you imagine?

I don’t care what excuse you tell me… it IS possible for you.

How do I know this?

Because people have done it with no more than pennies to their name…

People have done it with major physical ailments…

People have done it with all the odds stacked against them…

Of course, the life you truly desire won’t be tossed into your lap. That doesn’t mean creating it can’t be easy.

All it means is that you will need to CHANGE.

Change the way you think.

Change the way you act.

Change the way you feel.

Change your habits and routines and perspective and reactions.

Most people prefer to hear advice that they LIKE over advice that can truly TRANSFORM them.

Let’s not beat around the bush: Transformation means your current identity must die. You must become somebody different.

Despite how that sounds, transformation is actually quite pleasant when you begin to see the results. The thing is, few people are willing to go through the process and experience that themselves…

And it’s no coincidence that few people live truly exceptional lives.

Are you brave enough to be real with yourself?Then ask yourself: Am I really doing everything I could to achieve what I say I want?

  • What books are you reading?
  • What podcasts are you listening to?
  • Which mentors are you following?
  • What changes have you made to your morning routine?
  • What changes have you made to your evening routine?
  • What bad habits are you replacing?
  • What good habits are you instilling?

The life you dream of CAN be yours.

No matter what circumstances you are facing, don’t ever give up hope.

Because you are not alone and you can do this.

Until next time.

What Is Leadership?

What Is Leadership?

​​​Leadership is not what you think it is.

It’s not a position.

It’s not a title.

It’s not standing on stage in front of thousands of people.

It’s not knowledge.

Leadership is your ability to know who you truly are so you can break down all the barriers and pursue a life that you want and won’t stop until you get the result.

That’s leadership.

And there’s no destination.

Leadership, it’s not glorified. It’s not.

Everyone thinks leadership is like Usain Bolt standing on the podium after his triple-triple.

That’s not leadership.

Leadership: Behind closed doors. Nobody’s looking but you. Nobody cares but you. Nobody has big enough reasons but your own. You have to overcome your demons, overcome your fear, and know that you’re good enough.

What would it take for you to believe that you are good enough in the space of uncertainty?

When you realize that every stumble, every fall, is what leads you to your greatness, you realize there is nothing bad in life.

Every challenge, every obstacle, every mistake, every pain is FOR you… so that you can BECOME the leader you want to be and live the life you want to live.

When you realize this, there are no victims… there are no villains.

Appreciate it all. Be grateful for it all.

Ego wants to justify. Ego wants to categorise. Ego wants to put things in their place.

Are you able to move from control to trust?

Are you able to move from fear to love?

What got you HERE won’t get you THERE. As cliché as it sounds.

In business, no matter how brilliant your mind is, control will only get you so far…

You won’t get what you truly want until you begin to TRUST the world around you… When you see that the world SUPPORTS you instead of TAKING from you… And when you start to ask the right questions…

“What do I have to do differently to get the result I want?”

“What is this challenge trying to teach me?”

“In this moment: How can I use this as an opportunity to grow?”

Your ability to seek perspective is your biggest asset in life.

Do you get that?

Those people you admire… they’re no different to you. They aren’t. They’re just people who chose to do the work on the INSIDE.

You deserve everything you want.

But do you believe it?

You are more than good enough.

But do you feel it?

Your fear doesn’t matter.

But will you let it?

Will you do the work on the inside?

Gather enough perspective to know that you have to continuously enlighten your perspective so you can take the right action to get the results you want.

Then… welcome to leadership.

Until next time.

Your friend,
James Melouney
