success. Change is just change. It is not failure. On the contrary, the willingness to change after honest assessment is one of the surest ways to make your Dream a reality.


Step #4: Run Systems Checks on Your Beliefs and Attitudes

You are an ever-changing entity, and along with the mental, physical, and emotional changes you experience come changes in your beliefs and attitudes. Don't assume that because you believed something once, you still do or still want to. As you change, so should your beliefs. Take the time to review your beliefs every so often and make sure your beliefs have kept pace with your changing experience of the world.

Attitudes change also. Review your attitudes and make sure you're still adopting Winner's attitudes. Don't keep any unwanted negativity hanging around, jamming up the works.


Step #5: Be Willing to Dream New Dreams

It is wonderful to achieve a Dream. It is also a little sad, for a Dream is what kept your sights high, your success moving in the right direction. Heal your sadness by dreaming new Dreams, lifting your sights ever higher, ever more in the direction of what satisfies you.

Don't be afraid to change a Dream should that Dream cease to serve you well. You answer to no one but yourself! Even if you've told everyone what your Dream was, and fear they will be very disappointed in you if you change your Dream, too bad! If that Dream no longer pulls you into the Future you desire, it's time to let it go and dream a new one. Your life is your own. Create Dreams that speak to you, now and through the whole of your life -- Dream on!
