Quick Start Challenge Week 2 Challenge
Welcome to episode 2 of my online journey. In this post I talk about how you can design your dream life and what steps you need to take to get there. To achieve anything in life, especially a successful online business, you need to know why your doing it. If you haven’t read episode 1, then you can check it out here.
So many people attempt the online game and end up quitting before they have ever really started. Most people fail to make any success at all online, but what is the reason behind this? The reason is because they do not have any goals or incentive to push through the failures and tough times, which in turn forces them to quit.
When running an online business, things aren’t always going to run smooth all of the time, especially when starting out. To succeed you need none stop persistent action with a “never give up! attitude. If you have a list of reasons why, with clear structured end goals, then this will give you the motivation to push through the hard times and to never quit. You will then know that by quitting, you will never achieve the dream life you desire.
So how do we go about achieving this dream life and living it to your potential. Let’s take a look at why you would want to do it, visualisation, steps to achieve your goals and monthly income goals to achieve these goals.
Why I’ve Started to Build an Online Business and What I want Out of It
There are two main reasons for wanting to achieve such goals, they are financial freedom and lifestyle freedom.
#1. Lifestyle Freedom: We all know how frustrating it is spending most of your waking hours of the day stuck in a job you hate. You also have to work from the same location, and worst thing of all, the horrendous traffic travelling to and from work.
What I want from my life is to be able to work as many or little hours as I want and from any location I want. The beauty of building an online business is you can work from anywhere,even sit in your pyjamas on your laptop on a cold winters morning earning money.
By working from home you also have the ability to do hobbies and activities you love, travel, and spend time with your family.
#2. Financial Freedom / Security: From an early age we go through school, college and university to get good grades, to get a well paid job. Most people live on a check to check basis, they end up out of pocket and then wishing away the days until the next monthly paycheck.
Wouldn’t it be great to have financial security for you and your family. You never have to worry about bills again or walking round the shops checking the price labels to see if you can afford it.
Visualising Your Dream Life
We all possess more power and greater possibilities than we realise, and visualising is one of the greatest of these powers. It brings other possibilities to our observation. Visualising keeps your mind in order, and attracts to you the things you need to make life more enjoyable in an orderly way.
If you train yourself in practice of deliberately picturing your desire and carefully examining it, you will soon find your thought and desires come and proceed in more orderly procession than ever before. Having reached a state of ordered mentality you are no longer in a constant state of mental hurry.
Hurry is fear and consequently destructive. In other words, when your understanding grasps the power to visualise your heart’s desire and hold it with your will, it attracts to you all things requisite to the fulfilment of that picture by the harmonious vibrations of the law of attraction.
In visualising, or making a mental picture, you are not endeavouring to change the laws of Nature. You are fulfilling them. Your object in visualising is to bring things into regular order both mentally and physically.
When you realise that this method of employing the creative power brings your desires, one after another, into practical material accomplishment, your confidence in the mysterious but unfailing law of attraction, which has its central power station in the very heart of your word/picture, becomes supreme.
Steps to Achieving Your Goals / Dreams
Step 1 – Decide exactly what you want. Make sure you include everything you’re looking for, whether it’s a personal thing, achieving some sort of goal. Also be specific. Think big. The Universe can manifest something HUGE just as easily as something small.
Step 2 – Write a list of everything you’re looking for in order of importance. Rewrite your list once a week. I feel like that helps me connect with everything I’m trying to manifest. Something about physically writing it out and also reading my own handwriting, I think is powerful.
But the main way I use this is with Google slides. Document all of your dreams and goals in there. There’s 2 advantages to doing it this way. first is you can add photos such as cars, holiday destinations or whatever it is your dream life looks like. Second, you can access this wherever you are, even on your phone.
Step 3 – Read your list three times a day. Morning, noon, and night. Pull out your list and read it. It’s about being consistent so you can keep thinking the same thoughts, which will then activate the Law of Attraction to bring about whatever it is that you want in your life. Also repetition. This helps convince the subconscious mind that whatever you want is true and is yours.
Step 4 – Think about your list as often as possible. Make sure you spend some time out of your day, other than the morning, noon, and night list readings and make sure you think about what you want, especially the key ones that are most important to you. The Law of Attraction and your subconscious mind continue to think these thoughts, which will then bring it into your life.

Without going into to much detail, as mentioned above, the ultimate goal is to obtain both financial and Lifestyle freedom.

Monthly Income Goals
The first target is hit $2000 which would replace the day job and would reward me with the lifestyle freedom goal. The second target is to hit $8 – 10,000 which would achieve the financial freedom goal.
