Hi, My name is Grant.  I’m going to reveal to you the three keys that will lead you to success at reaching your dreams!

You might think that i’m making a rash claim here, but believe me I’m NOT!  There really are three keys to success, but they need to be used together.  Any one of the keys alone will not make you successful.  Use all three and no one can stop you from reaching your goals!  The only person that can stop you from reaching your goals is YOU!

A little background is in order here.

The three keys I am about to reveal are not new. They have been around for as long as man has been here on the earth, to some degree or other, so don’t think that what I will soon reveal is earth-shattering.  It’s not.  You probably already know these keys, but you haven’t realized their potential.

It’s just that most people don’t commit to the effort required for success, for real success takes effort.  Unless you are one of the rare ones that wins the lottery, or inherits wealth from a rich relative, reaching your goals takes focus and effort on your part.

As I said, most of us don’t commit to the effort required for real success.  It’s not that we don’t want to be successful, but life gets in the way.  We settle for a little success.  We settle for being well enough off to be comfortable.

Well, I want to take you out of your comfort zone!

Being comfortable is the kiss of death.  It’s what keeps us down.  Think about it.  Don’t you like relaxing at home in your favorite chair, with your favorite beverage, watching the idiot box until bedtime?  Tell me how you are progressing toward your goals as you snooze in front of the TV.  Relaxation is good, but it’s static.

Well, don’t I deserve to relax and wind down, you ask?  Of course you do, but too many of us relax and wind down every day that we’re not out earning a living at a job we don’t really like.  So where’s the time to work on our dreams?  If we just dream about our dreams they will stay our dreams.  If you want to reach your dreams, make them a reality, you have to do something about it.  We can’t at work, because we’re working.  So it’s our own time, our time away from the job, where we can work toward our dreams.

Ok, here’s the first key to reaching your dreams.

Key #1

Knowledge is Power, and Knowledge is Money

I was a helicopter pilot in the U.S. Navy.  The first time I strapped into the cockpit of a helo I was able to fly like a bird.  NOT!  First I had to go to Ground School and learn the basics.  I had to learn about aerodynamics, avionics, powerplants, navigation, and other general aviation topics.  There were tests.

Then things got specific.  I learned about the model of helicopter I was going to begin training in.  I learned It’s specifications, like top speed, rate of climb, rate of descent, maximum torque, max turbine temperatures, gross weight, cargo capacity, etc,  There were more tests.

Key #2

Training opens the door

So, after learning about flying, I started flying. Each flight was a test.  At first I was horrible.  Af first everyone is horrible, but learning comes quickly.  That’s the importance of training.  Get the knowledge, then get trained on how to apply it.  Knowledge by itself is not enough.  A knowledgeable instructor is important to guide you through the training program, which is designed to make you skilled at what you are trying to accomplish, in my case becoming a helicopter pilot.

At first I had one instructor, which is good because the instructor can see your tendencies, monitor your progress, and adapt the program to you.  After I got some flights under my belt, I started flying with different instructors each flight, to build my confidence and to keep me from relying on one instructor.  Different instructors can see things that the first instructor might miss due to familiarity, and different instructors can demonstrate different techniques.

After progressing through the training program, I graduated and was designated a naval aviator.  YAAAY!!

Key #3

Practice Makes Perfect

After my training, I was assigned to a helicopter squadron.  Even then, the training went on.  There were qualifications to reach, designations to earn.  Pilot qualified in model, co-pilot, and the ultimate, Helicopter Aircraft Commander.  That’s the chief pilot in the crew.  Once that designation is reached, then the pilot can relax somewhat, training-wise, but flying is still important.  Practice hones the skills, and the more hours spent in the cockpit, the better a pilot becomes.  There are many situations to continue practicing, such as night flying, instrument flying, shipboard flight ops, etc.  A pilot cannot sit back and relax too much, because there is always improvement to be made.

Now lets apply this to business success

How do the three keys listed above apply to business, including online business?

In any business, and in life, the more knowledge you have, or the more you know, the better off you are.  Especially in a competitive world, where others desire success as much as you do.  You HAVE to know what you are doing.

An online training program that takes you step-by-step from beginner to web marketing expert is an advantage that every online marketer, or aspiring online marketer MUST take advantage of.  As is flight training, knowledge without training is incomplete.  Online business training is a must!

Once again, Wealthy Affiliate comes through with a comprehensive training program to supplement the lessons that teach you the knowlegde you need.  Each lesson has training exercises and steps to help you build your website and your business as you learn.  As you progress through the lessions you are building your business and learning the techniques and steps for online success.

Success isn’t automatic, and it isn’t quick. It takes time and persistence to build a successful website and gain the trust of the search engines.  You can plan on 6 months to a year to begin making real money, but isn’t that pretty normal for any business?

Very motivating article on reaching your dreams, you have shared some good points about our habits which can hold us back from reaching our dreams.

I do think people today spend too much time relaxing with our fun products, many people dream of owning their own business but never get started.

Wealthy Affiliate sounds like a good way to get motivated and training at the same time, I will tell my friends about this program who have talked about opening their own business.

Hi Grant
I have been a day dreamer from when i was a child, sadly some people’s dreams are never realized. Some of my dreams have been realized, because i took action, after learning what to do.
Shiny object syndrome is where people gather information, but never act. They just flit from one shiny object to another.
You need to find out where the best Education is, start learning, and take action. There are steps to take, and small successes, but they all add up to success in the end.
Your 3 keys are important, but taking action is the primary one.
Cheers
