I recently had a conversation with a friend about the next 5-10 years and what we wanted to accomplish. We both own great businesses and are somewhat semi-retired. As we talked about the possibilities, I found myself challenging my friend and even myself as to the possibilities for us. Needless to say that by the end of the conversation, we both agreed that we weren't thinking big enough and needed to spend some more time looking at the true potential we have in front of us.
I love these types of conversations because even when you are doing well and think you have everything dialed in, there is potential to reach higher and challenge yourself.
After the conversation, I was energized and started writing down my thoughts and pushing myself to what could truly be possible. I asked myself where I was "comfortable" and thought through how I could move from comfortable to uncomfortable and raise the bar. I looked at my current trajectory and asked a lot of questions of myself about why I was on the that trajectory and how I could make it even better. I asked myself what I believe my capabilities and future. I challenged myself when it came raising the bar on total income. I also took inventory of the daily and weekly actions I am doing in my businesses and asked what I should keep doing and stop doing.
If you haven't done an exercise like this, you should every year. You should challenge yourself to think bigger and ask questions of yourself no matter how successful you are. There is a world of abundance out there and god-willing, it is yours to tap into. So, think bigger and reach higher.
