How Far Are You Willing To Go?


Tom Corley boats - crop

In order to know how far you are willing to go, you must be honest about how far you are willing to go. You must come face to face with your own self-imposed limits.

To help you better understand yourself and your limits, I would like to ask those of you who are pursuing a dream, some questions:

  • How many years are you willing to chase your dream?
  • How many hours a day are you willing to put in?
  • How much family time are you willing to sacrifice?
  • How much friend time are you willing to sacrifice?
  • How much stress are you willing to shoulder?
  • How much financial risk are you willing to take?
  • How much disappointment are you able to tolerate?

In short, how far are you willing to go in the pursuit of your dream?

When you are done, ask your spouse, if you have one, these very same questions.

Your answers, and the answers of your spouse, will determine if you have what it takes in order to pursue a dream.

According to my Rich Habits research, the average dreamer devoted twelve years or more in pursuit of a dream.

And when I asked these self-made millionaire dreamers these questions, their answers were almost always the same:

I Was Willing to do Whatever it Took

Being a dreamer is a very selfish thing. You have to put your dream first.

Ahead of family.

Ahead of friends.

You have to be willing to forgo vacations, weekends and holidays.

You have to be willing to go all in.

Most people who fail to achieve their dreams, are unwilling to make the sacrifices necessary in order to realize their dreams.

That is why there are so few self-made millionaire Dreamers. It’s just too hard and too much of a sacrifice for most.

My mission is to share my unique research in order to help others realize their dreams and achieve their goals. If you find value in these articles, please share them with your inner circle and encourage them to Subscribe. Thank You!
