I’m going to be a fireman/woman when I grow up.
I’m going to be a policeman/woman when I grow up.
I’m going to be an astronaut when I grow up.
We’ve either heard it or said it at some point in our lives.
But remember that feeling of saying it when you were a kid, or when your child, nephew, or niece said it.
My stepdaughter wants to be an astronaut. The first thing I said there’s nothing stopping you, what can I do to help you achieve your dream
Not having the slightest clue into what it takes to be one, but the belief of being one was so strong that it could be seen so clearly, it’s like a reality.
Imagine having that kind of feeling, that kind of belief now as an adult.
Whether you’re starting a new venture, working on establishing yourself, or new to a sector.
Only if you had the belief when you were a child imagine how easy it could be for you now.
Why can’t it though?
You’re all grown up and experienced life, and understand more now than when you were a child. So it should be easier. The only thing stopping you is that belief in doing it. Put yourself in the shoes of a child that wants something and will do absolutely anything to get it.
This is where you should be now. You have the answer. Set out what you want to achieve, allow yourself to visualise the outcome, and make it happen.
You’re more prepared now than as a child, it’s now executing it the opportunity. You deserve to be what you want to be, and how you get there is all down to you. Don’t give up.
Start by calling out what you want to be now just like you did when you were a child.
You’re going to be a successful business owner.
You’re going to be an executive of an organisation.
You’re going to be a better parent.
You’re going to be a better husband/wife or partner.
You’re going to change the way you work with your team.
You’re going to increase and maximise your performance personally and at work.
It’s easier to call this out for yourself, but the performance is down to you.
Allow yourself to be coached and mentored along the way to get to those life long goals you have always wanted, just do it for you!
