Are you committed to making your dreams come true in the next 90 days?
No, I mean REALLY committed – as in "Failure is Not an Option" type of committed.
If you are, then you should be nodding enthusiastically at this point, ecstatic that your dreams are already a reality, and that the short amount of time between now and you meeting those dreams is nothing more than a logistical issue. You should know in your heart of hearts that you attaining your dreams in a very short amount of time is only a matter of working through some minor details.
If that last paragraph doesn't describe you, then I submit to you that you are not fully committed to making your dreams come true NOW, because if you were, you would be as excited and as confident as the person who was described in that paragraph.
The problem is that – as a general rule – we say that we are committed, and we may in fact actually be taking steps in the right direction, but in all actuality our own internal belief systems are keeping most of us from actually believing that success is possible sooner – not later!
I have talked a lot about the Law of Attraction on this blog, and I stand by everything that I have said about using that power in order to create a wonderful life for yourself. However, I submit to you now that even if you don't believe in the power of the Law of Attraction, the raw power of your desire and your belief should be enough to change the fabric of your reality in order to make your dreams come screaming towards you at breakneck speed.
However, here is the reality of the situation:
Most people don't have what it takes to make that kind of a commitment. Most people don't have the belief and the sheer, unadulterated confidence in themselves to make grandiose statements about the success that is already theirs, even if the evidence is not yet there to back it up.
Most people simply don't believe!
That is what this post is about, and that is why I chose the title '10,000 Fists to Freedom'.
As I was out running this morning (at 6:30am, thank you very much!) I was listening to one of my favorite "running bands" – Disturbed. Now, their music could be called anything but politically correct, which I'm sure is why I like them so much. One of the other reasons why I like them is because their music exudes energy and power. For me, it's impossible to not get amped up when listening to them.
When listening to the title track for their album Ten Thousand Fists, it struck me that an amazingly small percentage of people truly have what it takes to make an honest and effective commitment to attaining a goal in a short period of time. As in, oh, I don't know – about 10,000 people out of something like every 1,000,000 people.
That's a pretty small percentage – only 1% in fact.
However, rather than have a negative reaction to that fact, I turned it around into a positive, and the following challenge is the result:
I challenge you – dear reader – whether you are reading this post on June 6, 2007, its original posting date, or if you are reading it on June 6, 2207, to ask yourself if you truly have what it takes to make a commitment to attaining a challenging goal over the next 90 days.
I'm not talking about some mamby pamby crap like losing 10 pounds, getting another 100 readers for your blog, or cleaning out your garage.
No, I am talking about hardcore, scary, going to take everything you have to make it happen kind of goals. Things more like this:
- Losing 35-45 pounds in 90 days
- Becoming financially independent in 90 days
- Moving to a new home in 90 days
- Starting a measurably profitable business in 90 days
- Turning your life around 180-degrees in 90 days
Those are the kind of goals I am talking about here. Those are the kind of goals that only about 1% of you who are reading this will have what it takes to commit to, and to actually achieve.
Are you offended that I only think 1% of you have what it takes?
Good! Then prove me wrong! Put your scary/fantastic/amazing goal in the comments section below and put your money where you mouth is.
The comment will be date-stamped, so in 90 days you will have the opportunity to come back here and post again about your victory, or you'll have the opportunity to avoid this blog like the plague in 90 days because you don't want to be seen skulking around here with your tail between your legs…
C'mon! Let's see what you've got! In fact, let's see what your readers have got as well! Put a link to this post on your blog and challenge your own readership to take on the 90-day challenge. If you write about personal growth/personal development, then your readers should be ready, willing, and able to take on such a challenge.
In fact, I'll put my money where MY mouth is as well, because my 90-day goal is to be financially independent by the end of that 90 days. So, since I already know I will be a success, I'll sweeten the pot:
Anyone who puts a comment on this post with a measurable goal that can be compared to where they are now vs. where they will be in 90 days – and accomplishes it – will get a cool $100 cash straight from me to you.
Don't believe it? Why don't you "put up or shut up" and drop a comment below letting the world know what your goal is?
I DARE YOU.
