Ever wish you could work your dream job?  Dream of pursuing your passional with 100% focus and energy?  Many people want to follow their passion but are often afraid to do it or don’t know where to start.   The fear of failure or lack of knowledge can be big obstacles that hold us back. We would all pursue our dreams if we knew beforehand that we would be successful doing it.  Most often, we have limiting beliefs such as:  “It probably won’t work”, “I could never do it”, “I don’t know where to start”.

Here are a couple of simple tips using key SHARK Belief elements to help you get started:

Tip # 1 – Determine Exactly What You Want

Decide what it is you would like to be doing and what that looks like.  How would you like to be living your life or what do you want to accomplish?  It sounds obvious but this is a step often skipped over by those pursuing success.  This is all about having an Aim and knowing what your actions are for.  The first step is to set your focus and begin directing your thoughts and energy to one thing.  You don’t turn this into a big project so just describe it to yourself or someone you trust in simple terms.  How will you know when you’ve been successful?  If you don’t know where you’re going, you will end up some place else.

Tip # 2 – Connect With Others

Get out and meet people who are already doing what you want to be doing and who are also making money from it. Spend time with them, observe them and learn from them.  The best way to get started is to connect with other like-minded individuals.

Several things will happen: By meeting with them you’ll find out how they got to where they are and your knowledge of how to do it yourself will go up.  Additionally, by seeing others do what you want to do will change your beliefs and you will have more confidence that you can do it too.

By following these two simple tips, you see chain reaction that will propel you to take further action.  We have a tendency of overcomplicating things and in our pursuit of success, it’s easy to fall into the trap of paralysis by analysis.  The only cure for this is to take action.  The doubts will begin to go away and the sky will start to clear the moment you begin to pursue your dreams.
