Transformed Life - The Result of Discipline and Dreams

Last Update: September 06, 2019

In his book titled "The Simple Dollar - How a Man Wiped Out His Debts and Achieve the Life of His Dreams", author Trent Hamm explains how his life was transformed by being discipline with money and being true to his dreams.

On one of the chapters in this book titled "Life Designs - Building Something New", he explains five simple steps on how to get people started on their journey to their new life. I believe this five steps are applicable and critical to what the Wealthy Affiliate community does day in and day out. Here they are:

  1. Get your foundation in order - this point is about understanding why you make the decisions you make and using that knowledge to control the way you act. Being careful and calculated with the decisions you make while working towards your success at Wealthy Affiliate, will pay big dividends. Be mindful of your decision-making process and continue to do what helps, eliminating what does not.
  2. Know what you want - you are the only one that knows the dreams planted in your heart. Only you can push through to achieve those dreams. Use the support of the positive people around you and stay away from the negative people.
  3. Envision the worst-case scenario - by envisioning the worst case scenario in your journey, it makes it much simpler to deal with the situation if it becomes reality.
  4. Look at the personal rules you used to govern your life - there are many of them - evaluate all your habits. By eliminating negative impacting habits, one can feel refresh and eliminated mental and physical barriers in our lives.
  5. Associate with people who are attempting audacious goals in their own life - relate to people within Wealthy Affiliate's Community. They will inspire you, you will inspire them and stronger relationships will form.

We can use some or all of these steps at any given time on our journey. More importantly, remember you are not alone. Be disciplined and be true to your dreams. The Wealthy Affiliate community is here to support you throughout the process.

Very positive advice and it's important to be aware of the steps we take to achieve success. We all do a lot of them without thinking but it is only when we make ourselves become aware of what they are we become better at doing them
Best wishes, Rob

Great suggestion Rob001. Become aware of the steps we take to achieve success. I think step #4 gets a bit into that, but you stated it very clearly.

Thank you for your comments!

Hi J,
I think you have to be careful not to analyse
some of our behavioural activities too deeply because
we can end up driving ourselves insane!! For me, it would not
be difficult !!!

Self analysis is fine, providing you don't mind fully accepting what you find!!

Best wishes. Rob.

To me, the second point, even though is easy to understand ... it is not so in reality. A lot of people advice, even myself is doing it ... know what is it you want or your why? Sometimes, I wonder how many people really knowing what they want from the start. The successful one sure does... but how about the rest? For if they do, they should know what to do ... just food for thought.
Thanks for sharing, J, I appreciate it. All the best to you.

I believe you have a point klchang. But consider this other point of view: knowing what you want today does not mean that what you want is what others want.

If others do not want what you want, you may fail, then it is your responsibility to learn, adjust and execute towards the "new want". I believe that is the key to success... the ability to flex your wants into what others wants.

Thank you for your comments!

Great post! Without rock-solid discipline, we can not achieve our audacious goals. It goes without saying.

Completely agree Dadaz123, discipline is key. Also remember, goals imply a specific direction. That is when dreams become important because is where the specific direction may have been taken from.
