How to Make a Dream Come True

What a Ride

I didn't have the resources to do what I wanted, so I figured out how I could make something from what I did have. I guess that is entrepreneurship at its finest (or just problem-solving, as my girlfriend would point out).

I simply took everything I knew, came up with a way to share it with people, with an eye towards empowering people to take control of their own health, and wrote something. I promoted it frantically, made a lot of friends, and trusted in the sincerity of my message. I networked and pitched guest posts (the first offer was from Carla Birnberg of MizFit Online, and I responded with enthusiasm by bouncing up and down like a bunny on speed). A lot of it was faith that the community would help me get more involved.

And in the end, all that effort paid off. People helped me, I made the money, and one day, I went up on MovNat's website, typed in my PayPal information, and signed up for the course. Months of hard work culminated in a few clicks of the mouse, though the real finish line will be the class itself.

Change Your Mind, Change Your World

In April, when I started this project, I couldn't really see how I was going to make it happen. Luckily, I had a lot of guidance from books like The Art of Non-Conformity, The $100 Startup, and The 4-Hour Workweek. The advice from those books helped me see a vague outline of the path that would get me to where I wanted to be. I didn't know the details, but I knew the waypoints and major landmarks.

I also learned a lot on my own. The technical stuff if pretty easy -- break things down to the smallest possible steps, set SMART goals, create deadlines, be organized -- so I want to talk about the mindset here.

So, it is with great excitement, and immense gratitude, that I formally announce that the eBook project was a success and that I am all set to become a MovNat Certified Trainer.

I'd love to hear any input on the mindsets the empower us to make our biggest goals a reality. And, of course, if you've accomplish something big, please share in the comments.
