We motivate ourselves with emotional connections, not logical plans. The emotion is the engine, the logic is the plan.
So goals are plans – but the ‘WHY” is key. Why work for it, whats driving you?
The best way to do this is to create a dream, a dream narrative. Set out some questions or possibilities, think them through, absorb them and then build a narrative. Frank Kern does a great job with the Core Influence Video which I believe is still available for free – see details here.
(more core influence here- LINK)
A narrative such as – “My Perfect Day”, or “My Every Day’: -
“when I wake up, I am in my bedroom that overlooks… “etc.
Write your diary notes for your Dreaming Day.
” and after the great get- together with all my friends, we got the family together and jumped into the waiting helicopter and flew back to the Island. The kids were tired but we got them to bed finally. Our chef had left a snack for us on the patio, and we toasted each other as the moon rose over the ocean…”
Or something simple. Maybe the dream is to give time freedom, not wealth, not things, just time freedom…
Or maybe the dream is to be able to build schools with the local communities in far off lands…
Or …what motivates you. What would you like to achieve that will drive you to achieve?
Build a dream in your head, because that’s where it starts, and that’s the only place it can grow, from inside out.
Nothing is created without first being a dream.
And to help guide your narrative I have included a downloaded Dream Chart, in pdf and Excel formats, so you can play with it and make your own.

Its a chart to help get your dreams flowing.
Remember doesn’t have to be ‘things’ – but what will drive you.
Build your story.
If you don’t design your own story you will find that someone else has created a story for you, and it may not be anything you really want.
