Most people don't even try.
It's a fact and a sad one. Most people think up an idea about their goals or an experience they'd like to have but then... by the time they get to the end of their thought, they have already convinced themselves it will never happen.
This, my friends, is the "internal No," and it's the single biggest entity that stops progress. Why? Because most ideas never get past the person who had them to begin with.
Don't be that person.
I have a theory that a lot of Americans function this way.
How many times have you and people you know said the following: "Wow. When someone immigrates here, they really do well!" "Oh it's because they work as a team I bet." "If only we worked together like that."
Here's the thing about that conversation, it's both true and false.
On the one hand, yes, a lot of immigrants do well within a few years of living here, and in some cases, there was a teamwork effort that made that process work. BUT NOT ALWAYS.
The difference between most people who immigrate to the states and those of us born here is this: the assumption of No.
Far too many Americans are controlled by the internal No, and today is not the day I debate on the reason we have this issue. What's critically important today is, that YOU DEFEAT YOUR NO.
How do you do that?
#1 Solve the Yes Puzzle
Every dream, idea, goal etc has a way that makes it possible. Your goal is to find out how to get there. Imagine your goal as a destination you want to get to. A simple goal could be a grocery store down the street, while a bigger goal could be a trip across the country.
Obviously the larger goal has more possibilities that you'll need to take a few detours or that there might be unexpected delays. However, just like travel, ALL TRIPS ARE POSSIBLE, which means that ALL IDEAS ARE TOO.
Map it out. Do the research. Make notes. Talk to others (not the doubters. Talk to people who have knowledge related to your idea and a few people who don't just to get a few possible queries into what you should look for and ask.)
#2 We'll get to part 2 in a later discussion. Today is all about defeating the Internal No and DEVOTING YOURSELF TO THE YES.
