There is no straight line to success. I’m not the only one that thought that huh? Good. I know it sounds cliché, in fact, it may be, but does that make it false? Nope! Not at all. The statement is true and it causes some to never get in the game. They stop before they begin… sounds crazy, right? How do you stop before you begin? Let’s call it Dreamers Remorse!! It’s like buyer’s remorse. You know, when you make a purchase, get all excited about it, but then you get home and start feeling guilty. So, what do you do? That’s right you return it!

Let’s define

So what the heck is Dreamers Remorse? Before we answer that, let’s get Webster’s involved.

A Dreamer is:

  1. one that dreams
  2. one who lives in a world of fancy and imagination
  3. one who has ideas or conceives projects regarded as impractical: visionary

Remorse is:

  1. a gnawing distress arising from a sense of guilt for past wrongs: self-reproach
  2. obsolete

Together they constitute Dreamers Remorse: one who has ideas or conceives projects regarded as impractical — a visionary that develops a gnawing distress arising from a sense of guilt for past wrongs —s Self-reproach.

The “are you smarter than a 5th grader” version

People have goals and dreams, but somehow talk themselves out of pursuing them before they begin their journey. They worry if others will think they’re crazy. Don’t convince yourself to defer your dreams and goals. Your dreams live deep inside and keep you awake at night without end.

Get the Picture

Jim Rohn told us, not to take these courses with good reason. It leads us nowhere and produces nothing. Your success greatly depends on you, but that does not mean you have to do it alone. Ask for help. Find books that will help you focus on your true goals, and seek out a mentor for additional guidance. the wheels turning in your mind or a YouTube video that excites you. No work equals a 100% chance that you will not succeed!
