Here Are 10-Steps To Achieve Your “American Dream.”

…”Anyone can succeed through hard work, dedication, determination, and sacrifice. It sounds hard – and it is – but those who achieve success aren’t whiners and don’t blame others for their failings because they DO SOMETHING about it. The difference between success and failure is the “will to keep goin.” so here are 10 steps to achieve your American dream:

  1. Be accountable for your current situation. Blaming others only keeps you from taking steps to fix it.
  2. Your life depends on it, literally. If you don’t take control of your life, it will take control of you. 
  3. Control your circumstances. Put yourself in a position to control what happens around you. 
  4. You have to REALLY want it. If you aren’t committed, you are going to fail.
  5. Be bold. No one will take you seriously unless you take yourself seriously first.
  6. Find a guide. In business, find a mentor to guide you through the wilderness. 
  7. Are you a “renter” or an “owner?” “Renters” can walk away without consequence. “Owners” have too much at stake to lose. Be willing to commit to everything. If you have no choice BUT to succeed…you will.
  8. Be willing to work. Success is not a weekday 9-5 job. It is a 24-7 adventure that will consume your life. If you aren’t willing to “do the time,” don’t start. 
  9. You probably need to get rid of your current friends. If you want to know where you will be in 5 years, look at who you surround yourself with today. Successful people surround themselves with successful people. 
  10. Get off of social media. If you want to succeed, get out into the real world and find the opportunities overlooked by others.

The “American Dream” isn’t dead, at least not yet – but you must decide to take the first step.
