Let’s suppose that you were able every night to dream any dream you wanted to dream and that you could for example have the power within one night to dream 75 years of time or any length of time you wanted to have and you would naturally as you began on this adventure of Dreams you would fulfill all your wishes you would have every kind of pleasure you see and after several nights of 75 years of total pleasure each you would say well I was pretty great but now let’s um let’s have a surprise let’s have a dream which isn’t under control well something is going to happen to me that I don’t know what its gonna be and you would dig that and come out of that and say wow that was a close shave wasn’t it and then you would get more and more adventurous and you would make further and further out Gamble’s as to what you would dream and finally you would dream where you are now you would dream the dream of living the life that you are actually living today somebody’s lost sleep more than you love success and I’m here to tell you today if you’re going to be successful you’ve got to be willing to give up sleep you got to be willing to work on for three hours of sleep two hours if you really want to be successful some days you will have to stay up three days in a row because if you go to sleep you might miss the opportunity to be successful that’s how bad you got a warning most of you won’t be successful because when you’re studying and you get tired you quit I’m here to tell you today if you got it somebody came to my office the other day crying I said look don’t cry to give up cry to keep going don’t cry to quit you already in pain you already hurt get a reward from it don’t go to sleep until you succeed or we must begin to look at what are the things that we can do that would put us on some firm footing in life that will enable us to do some things and and use some powers that we have that many of us go through life never ever discovering that we have those things going for us and part of that I believe is knowing what it is your life work what is it that gives your life a sense of meaning and purpose because once you find that it puts you in your power place see if you know what your life work is I encourage you to start working on it if you can’t do it all at one time do just a little bit of it and if you don’t know what it is that you showed up to do if you don’t know why you’re here I encourage you to find out what your purpose is there what is the meaning of your life and I say to you that if you begin to take a conscious effort to find out what it is that you’re supposed to do I say that it can literally save your life I said that it can literally save your life see when you’re going someplace and you already know how much you’re going to make you already know how far you can go you had a dead end position it erodes your self-esteem it lowers your sense of yourself it creates an inner turmoil it creates an emptiness in you so I say that your life is worth finding what it is that you’re supposed to do do find out what your work is and hold on to it and don’t let your dream go don’t let it go see and here’s something else I want you to begin to look at why is it that most people don’t pursue their dreams so don’t do better than what they’re doing if they’re capable of doing it I think that many of us don’t go the next step because we don’t know what to do yet and I say that that the reason that we don’t even explore the possibility of what to do is because subconsciously we don’t believe that it can happen for us and we don’t believe that we deserve it so here’s what I’m suggesting how much time do you spend working on you how much time do you spend every day working on your dream in the last 90 days how many books have you read in the last year what new skill or knowledge have you acquired what kind of investment have you made in you so I’m saying that as you begin to look at where you want to go if you want to make it today and things are changing so fast you have to literally run to standstill I’m saying that you’ve got to make some conscious effort to begin to work to develop you here’s something else most people are not living their dreams because of fear ladies and gentlemen fear limited vision and lack of self-esteem is what keep most people doing things they don’t want to do the same reason that people stay in relationships where their bills are they’re unhappy or it’s unfulfilled they can’t see themselves beyond that relationship they can’t see themselves enjoying life without that person they think that this is all that they can do the same reason that people get stuck in a certain level in life they can’t see things being better for them and they think that this is it and this is all they deserve this is all they’ve ever seen has been passed on to them and they think that this is fear is the most subtle and destructive of all human diseases ladies and gentlemen fear kills dreams fear kills hope fear put people in the hospital fear can age you fear ladies and gentlemen can hold you back from doing something that you know within yourself that you’re capable of doing but it will paralyze you and it seem like you’re in a hypnotic spell and I ask you a question what is the benefit what’s the benefit of allowing fear to hold you back what’s the benefit of giving up on yourself I’m not stepping out on life and taking life on what is the benefit for you what’s the plus in that it’s one of the things I had to ask myself so I didn’t want to make any mistakes I wanted everybody to like me I wanted to be perfect the first time I did something it’s not going to happen you’re going to make some mistakes you’re gonna hurt some folks feelings you’re gonna create some enemies whenever you decide that you want to begin to take life on you’ve got to ask yourself how long am I going to allow this to hold me back so that fear is false evidence appearing real that it’s an illusion that we created in our mind it is a state of mind that can be changed so let’s look at how we can begin to take some steps to restructure that fear to begin to expand our visions of ourselves to begin to increase our self-esteem Webster said that self-esteem means confidence and satisfaction in oneself look at your life right now whatever you’ve done up to this point in time your life is working whatever you have produced it came out of you as a result of the kind of person that you have become as a result of your choices it’s a result of your consciousness now you have to ask yourself are you satisfied with what you have produced this what you want would you like for things to be better than this do you believe that you deserve better than this alright you content this is it you don’t have to do everything anything else but you already resign yourself in like I said well I’m happy I’m not starving like the people in Calcutta are you allowing yourself to get off the hook like that or do you believe somewhere in the back of your mind or in your heart but there’s some other great work for you to do there’s something else that life has for you and that’s why you’re here how do we handle this fear factor how do we increase our self-esteem you have to begin to fortify yourself how do we do that I believe that you have to begin to consciously monitor your inner conversation and start talking to yourself start building yourself up sometimes the only good things you will hear about you are the things that you say to you so I’m saying learn to be your own booster stop building yourself up start encouraging yourself start saying I can do this I can make this happen it’s a natural inclination for us to put ourselves down see we have born negative I think in a negative consciousness because we live in a negative world so I’m saying that we have to work through the challenges of life in learning how to begin to work to quantify all cells begin to guard your mind against negative programming like turn off the television so you’ve got to guard the kinds of things that you put in your mind see if you don’t program your mind your mind will be programmed because human beings are goal-oriented that’s why we die of broken hearts early that’s why we’re running through life too early grave most of us go through life running scared so we created this in our minds false evidence appearing real we made it real our minds there’s nothing to fear but fear itself that’s the destructive monster so turn off things that can contribute to your fear turn a deaf ear to people that all they can do is talk about how negative things up because they have bought into the consciousness of the world listen to things that can empower you that can enable you to create a new reality for yourself in a new life for yourself what idea are you sitting on right your ideas down and then once you get that idea take the leap see a lot of people get the ideas and just walk around with them take the lead see it’s a view of the universe if you don’t take the plunge I guarantee you somebody else will take the plunge go into action and ladies and gentlemen you will be surprised how things will come together you’ll be surprised now you’re going to have some difficult challenges I can tell you that now be aware of that things are not going to work out exactly right for time they will sometimes and that’s when life is just playing the game with you but ladies and gentlemen go into action with your dream and don’t avoid where the fights are get in the midst of the fight and get some hickeys on your head get knocked down so you can learn how to fight so you can hold your position see most people don’t get out in the arena of life because they don’t want to fight most people don’t get out there because they don’t want to get knocked down they don’t want to be dropped to their knees but see you’re going to be dropped worthy you on the field or whether not just sitting on the sidelines you’re going to be dropped so at least get dropped with something don’t get knocked down while you’re sitting down see that’s not most people of spectators in life you don’t want to be a spectator you want to get out in the field where the action is and you will be amazed after the struggle there will be a calm period and things will begin to click for you come out here with what you got you don’t have enough money don’t worry about it you’ve got the dream you got the idea you don’t have enough resources don’t worry about it you need some help don’t worry about it you’ll get out here in the arena someone will look at you and become inspired and say hey can I help you but if you sitting up on the bleachers nobody’s going to ask you anything
