Are you ready to be entre Vied? Let's break free of the life we're told to live, create freedom and well, by adding value to others live, challenge traditions, challenge authority and get onto ified. Hey, guys, this is Jeff. I'm gonna be talking about holding yourself accountable to your dreams. You know, if you got ideas, dreams, you need to protect them. And I would encourage you to write down your thoughts and figure out if it's something you're serious about or not. Or if it's just something you're just kind of mulling around, you know, often what you'll find out is that sometimes when you start doing research and start taking action, you either figure out if it's something you're wanting to do for just something you're thinking about. A lot of times have been something you're not really serious about. When you start taking action and start doing research, you think, Wow, this is too hard. I don't really want to get involved in this, But if you never take the time to research it out, you may never know. So you know, that's important thing that's important to realize about yourself. You know one thing you could do is right now is write down what you want, Even if you don't tell it out. It's one step that you can do if you have wrote down something you can think about and one of your planning sessions. Like for instance, if you write it down, you know what you're planning sessions that's coming up, you d tell it out then. But if you write it down just a little brief description, you have at least got it out of your mind. You got it on paper. So it's something that you're at least to the point of thinking about because you took enough action to write it down. And that's very important because a lot of times people will say, Well, I'm interested in this, for I'm interested in that. But they don't want to write nothing down. They don't wanna put it down On paper, they think, Oh, well, I know what I need to know. I don't need to write it down. Well, if you're not serious enough to detail something out, you know, it probably means that you're not willing to put the work in. I would encourage you to put it down start researching some things out of the later time, but it just put it down in the basic four, where you can least have it down on paper where you can look at it so much of the time. We have good plans, but life gets in the way. You need to set a time where you can come back to it or you can re examine it, see if you're making progress with it. You know, that's part of the accountability, you know, if you're not willing to put the work in, you know that's gonna tell you right then, that you're probably not interested in it that to that degree, But you have to hold yourself accountable, the things that you want to get done. If it's just a nice thought. That's one thing you know. But when you're willing to put the work in, it becomes something more tangible. Something Maur riel. So I would encourage just to write it down. Like I said, another thing I won't give you some examples of some stuff that I'm talking about. Like, for instance, if you want to be Elektronik engineer, but you don't make the time to explore you know, I mean, you've got to find out about the occupation, what it involves, what some of the things involved in it. Like, for instance, what kind of course is would you need to take, You know, And I'll tell you. Another thing that you can do is if you can find people in the area, you may ask him, What's it like? You know? I mean, what's it like to be Elektronik engineer, for example? You know, I mean, it could be all kinds of different things. Could be a veterinarian. Could be a lot of different things. But if you can just make some steady movement and Ford movement on some of this stuff where you ask people, you talk to people and you get information, it's about gathering information. Most everything can be benefited if you gather more information about your employment. So looking for employers that hire for that position is another thing that you can do. You can see who all is involved in hiring that type of person, you know, or that type of position issue should say so. But one of the things is, you know, just making sure that you do research guys. It's very important that you continually do research because it's very important that you have information that is really a determining factor in a lot of different things, of whether it's an idea or if it's something gold, you really want to get involved with it. It's something that you want to come to say come to sing fruition in where it actually comes into reality comes into being. And if you're willing to put the work in a lot of times, that's what defines that you know. So it is more than just all Well, I wish I could do that someday. You know, if you have it wrote down, you're really willing to do some work. You start taking some action steps toward it. Then it made your more serious than if you're just it's just a passing thought. So here's another thing that I would like to talk about another example so you could take this. And if you want to be a teacher, you know a lot of people want to be a teacher. Have you ever talked to a teacher? You know, if you could sit down and talk with them in sight What should I consider? What's some of the things that you're going through that you didn't know? You know, because they can give you inside on that. But But really, holding yourself accountable to your dreams means actually putting in the work. That's what it all boils down to. Its research guys is constant, trying to find out more information. It often makes a difference. Like I said, between something that you're just casually thinking about or you're really serious about, because if you're not really serious, you're not gonna do much much research. You're doing all I can do that at another time, and that's really a key to either. You're not self disciplined enough or it's just not that interesting to you. So here's some action steps that you can date do. Make a list of the things you can check on about your dream and what you need to look in to get more information on, get informed by taking action, getting research. But that's one of the things you need to do is start trying to make a plan to get more research and then make a plan to implement my implement some action steps. If you're ready to go to that next step. But in recap research out what you need to know. Start putting some work into it, see if you're willing to work at it. I also encourage you to set a time to come back to the issue. See if you're willing to make progress on this. You know, a lot of times on a Friday or something like that, have a little bit more time to go over some things and kind of played catch up. You know, a Monday is really tough for me. It's really busy sometimes, but often at the end of the weekend, I could take a little time to do some things and, you know, in a little bit more detail. So Friday's is generally good for May. You know, I would say it's completely free because it's generally never completely free anymore. But if you can take a little time to go over some things and you know, see how you're doing is for his accountability wise. I mean, have you put the time? In other words, you're checking back on your self. Okay, I've had this dream. This is something I'm looking into. Have done some research. Have I taken any action on it? And then you ask yourself why, you know, have I done this, You know, so it don't lie. Let's say Friday, you just say, Hey, am I accountable to this dream? You know, Is this something I'm serious about? What if I actually doing toward it and it doesn't? Don't be so hard on yourself if you haven't done anything toward it, you know, just kind of look at it from a standpoint of what can I do? Better, You know, and do I need to have some more time this week to look more toward it? But in the end, you have to set a time that you hold yourself accountable to your dreams or they're just that they're just dreams. They're not something that you're actually gonna put into Ah, use. So I would encourage you to set a time it may be weekly. Could be bi weekly. Could be monthly where you come back and you hold yourself accountable to some of your dreams and see if you're really for real about that. And one of the main questions is am I taking action? Have I got results. Have I done research? Guys, I hope this has helped you. I think if you'll apply this, I really think it'll benefit your life. We'll see you next time. Bye bye.
