Today, I’m going to teach you how to achieve your ambition so do up your shoelaces and get ready. it is time for us to get moving.
HOW TO ACHIEVE YOUR AMBITION
When I was younger, I used to watch a TV program religiously. It was, I think, every Monday night or every Thursday night. It changed. It was called The Kids from Fame. I am sure you will have heard of it if you have not already seen it. The opening always began with the dance teacher, Lydia Grant, who was played by Debbie Allen, who I still have not met—she lives out in Los Angeles somewhere—and she would say, “You’ve got big dreams. You want fame. Well, fame cost. Right here is where you start paying, in sweat.”
WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS?
Now fame itself is fleeting. so I am certainly not talking about pursuing that, but we are talking about pursuing your ambition. What I want you to be really clear on is what is your ambition? What is it you want to achieve? Are you absolutely crystal clear on your game changer? It could be something absolutely huge like bringing world peace, ending poverty, ending sex trafficking, ending hunger. Or it might be paying off your mortgage or bringing joy to old people who have no teeth or to old people who have teeth. Whatever it is, just get crystal clear on it.
I have had various ambition points along the way. I wanted to get a book published. I wanted to be in a feature film. I wanted to move out to the States. I wanted to set up a studio and lots of different things and fortunately had the opportunity to do all of the above..
If you can be really clear on what it is that you want to achieve and just try and work out the steps to get there, similar to starting a business—you can also see the other video made on How to Start A Business—the next thing would be to try and list out what the potential obstacles are. What could stand on the way or how are you likely to hold yourself back? What are the things you are likely to do to stop yourself from achieving a particular goal?
WHAT IS STANDING IN YOUR WAY?
I really stood in my own way when I had various ambitions as an actor. When I identified this and took some of the blocks out, it really started clearing a way to more work. But, what are the blocks that are holding you back?
With me they were things like fear, wanting to be liked, wanting to be accepted. I had to work through all this stuff, get it out of the way and then just be completely present.
What is standing in the way of you and your ambition? Is there some kind of childhood or parental voice where one of your parents say, “You’ll never amount to anything” or “You can’t achieve that?” Just think what these voices are, what these potential obstacle are.
Then when you have your list of obstacles, be clear about what you are going to about them.Therapy is not really a solution if you are talking about getting your ambition out! Just try to find a faster way, something you can do right now to get around these obstacles, whatever it takes, whatever you need to do.
What are you prepared to do to get to your ambition? Be really clear why this ambition is even important to you. What is it that you want to do with it? What is the biggest way it is serving or contributing to society or to the world?
BELIEVING AND ACHIEVING
Above all, the most important thing I believe in terms of achieving your ambition or actually getting on the road to it is realizing that you have all of the resources that you need. You would not be given this idea, whether it is implanted in you, whether you have generated it, whatever your belief is, you would not be in this position, God the Divine would not put you in this position unless you can achieve it, unless you can actually get there.
I am not talking about achieving some wild fantasy like buying up all of the real estate in Tokyo but if there is something which you feel matches your particular talents—maybe you can do that, who knows?—but, if that is something which is really in tune, in line with who you are, if you have this idea, chances are you’ also have the resources to do it. Otherwise, it would not be in you and in your heart.
So take a moment, sit still, do a little meditation. Just reflect and really focus on what is it that you want to achieve and notice how you have the resources to get there.
THE NEXT STEP
I hope this helps. Why not just write your ambitions below? I would love to hear what it is that you are up to, the big things you are doing and bringing into the world.
Keep going with those ambitions. Remember it takes sweat to do whatever it takes. Bye for now.
