2. Your vision lacks conviction. The vision may seem achievable from a financial perspective, but if you don’t believe in your ability to get there…you probably won’t.
3. Your vision doesn’t motivate you. At the end of the day, your business is a vehicle to get you where you want to be in your life. Honestly, if achieving your vision isn’t going to make you any happier than you are today, is it worth working for?
I love that quote from Bill Gates: “Most people overestimate what they can achieve in a year and underestimate what they can achieve in ten years.”
You should dream big when you create your vision. Then, temper that dreaming with a healthy dose of skepticism.
If you have a vision that’s ambitious but achievable—and, most importantly, gets you out of bed in the morning—the time will fly.
A year is the blink of an eye.
Three years is basically tomorrow.
Will future you be living in the reality of your vision, or still dreaming about the next big thing?
