How do you achieve something great?

You don’t need funding. You don’t need a mentor or the right connections. You don’t need experience, education, talent, or any special skillset. You don’t need a better idea or to know your ‘why’. You don’t need anything more than what you already have.

You need to decide.

Make up your mind, definitively, that you will achieve something great. When you decide – really decide – you’ll notice a shift.

Obstacles turn into opportunities. Existing problems become manageable. People start supporting you. Funding presents itself. Mentors and connections come into your life. You realize you have more skills and experience than you thought you did. Fear becomes an invitation to a juicy challenge.

It’s not magic. It’s just the way you choose to perceive your life. When you decide that you WILL accomplish something, that thing becomes concrete in your mind. There is not an ounce of doubt that it exists. You believe it exists in the same way you believe this blog post exists. Your subconscious and conscious minds orient in the same direction and start pushing towards it.
