6 Tips To Protect Your Dreams From A Negatron

How do you protect your dreams from a negatron. A what?

A "negatron".

What on earth is that Dean? You may be saying. (lol)

A negatron is a negative person, a dream stealer, someone who never has anything positive to say or is just always complaining how bad things are.

Do you know anyone like that? Do you?

It may surprise you but the most negative persons you may come across are those "closest to you".

Theses are spouses Family members, close friends who have your "best interest at heart" and they don't want to see you get hurt so they have all kinds of "good advice" to give to you because they know all the things that will not work and they also know what is "best" for you.

If you buy those lies you are doomed from the get go.

Here are my 6 tips for protecting your dreams from negative individuals.

1. Keep your dreams to yourself.

Work on your stuff in secret, especially if you are surrounded by negative individuals. Show them what you have done, do not tell them what you are intending to do because they may cause you to doubt yourself and your capabilities. Whenever self-doubt creeps in that is one of the killers of dreams.
So do your thing in secret if you must, then you can speak about it. Chances are they will marvel at what you have done and may then congratulate you if they really want to see you succeed.

2. Surround yourself with like-minded individuals.

It is a great strategy to have a peer group of like-minded people who can support you and who you can draw strength and inspiration from. This can lead to a mastermind group who will always be there to support you and direct you in the path you need to go. From this group of like-minded individuals you can come up with the right strategies to follow, thereby discarding useless or non-productive activities. They can also hold you accountable so that you do not waste your time indulging in non-productive activities.

3. Learn Continually.

Life is about growth, every aspect of life is about growth and we can never reach our full potential if we stop learning. There are more "educated dullards" in the world than we may care to admit.
In the school of wisdom one learns that his "cup" must always be empty, always be willing to learn new strategies, new techniques, new paradigms because the world changes as time goes by and we need to be in step with the changes that happen in the various industries.
Continual education eradicates complacency and keeps you on the cutting edge of your craft. If you want to be known as an expert in any field, continuous education is an absolute must.

4. Assess Yourself.

Self assessment is crucial to the achievement of your dreams. This allows you to remain focused on the outcomes you want on your path to attaining your dreams. Self assessment also keeps you centered so that you do no vary to the right or left, which will only serve to dissipate your energies.

5. Give yourself a deadline.

Having a deadline is a way of ensuring that you will most likely continue to remain on the chosen path and also add some urgency to your activities. It is a tool that you can use to increase the effectiveness of your strategies. You will know based on the deadlines you have given yourself if a specific strategy will work or not and make the necessary adjustment to achieve each goal on your path to attaining your dreams.

6. Reward yourself for little successes.

Rewarding yourself for little successes, is a huge boost to your morale and will energize you to go on to the next milestone. The old saying "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" still hold some truth. Do for yourself whatever "rocks your boat". You may want to buy yourself something nice, take a trip to somewhere you have always wanted to go, the choice is yours just have some fun and get a feeling of accomplishment that you have done something that is taking you closer to you actually achieving your goals and ultimately your dream.

If you do these few little things that I have listed above, there is no stopping you and no "devil in hell" can prevent you from achieving your life's purpose.

Have an awesome day.

How To Overcome Your Fear of Writing

Dear Valued Reader,

It's been quite a while since I wrote my last post and I think its time I got my creative juices flowing again, by writing, therein lies the problem, I have not been writing.

What I have been doing is a lot of research which involves a lot of reading. I love to read, its one of my passions but you know what they say about passion, it can sometimes lead you down the wrong road if you do not control it. So here I am, writing instead of reading. The thing about writing is that it can become monotonous so it is sometimes good to talk to your friends and colleagues about your writing, or your desire to become a writer.

Therein lies my first advice to you to overcome your fear of writing.
Share your passion with your friends and peers that you want to become a writer or that you are currently writing. Some may not even believe you, some may encourage you and some may redicule you. The point is that you are subconciously imprinting to your inner self that you are a writer. Not that you want to become a writer but you ARE a writer. This only helps to reinforce your resolve and help to develop the right mindset.

It does not matter if the people around you don't believe you, the point is you must believe and act in a manner that is congruent with your belief.

The next thing to do is to just start writing, write everything that comes to your mind and do not stop to correct anything until your'e positively sure that you have nothing else to write based on the topic that you are writing about. Do not stop to make corrections because you will stem the flow of ideas if you do that. As I write this post I am doing exactly what I wrote about above (I practice what I preach :)

After you have written all that you feel deep within is everything you need to write to state your case, then its time to edit your work, and if your writing is as bad as mine, you will have a lot of editing to do, but never mind, practice makes perfect so edit away. You will be glad you did when you realise the amount of mispelling that you wrote earlier and I am sure you do not want your readers to see so many mispelled words in your writing, it looks unprofessional, wouldn't you agree?

Next, you should double check your work again and go through the entire post from top to bottom with a fine tooth comb (so to speak), you might just find one or two words or phrases that are mispelled or out of context that need to be corrected.

Well that's my two cents for today, I hope you found it to be informative and somewhat educational, I had fun writing it because it reminds me of what I was missing. Writing is fun and very rewarding on a deeper level and if you have any innner itching to become a writer, my advice to you is to just start writing, ok, that's it for today.

What are you doing here still reading my writing?

Go and start your own writing, that's an order.
