90% of the people I talk to, react in a similar way: When I ask them what their dreams are, they will name something that isn’t all that far beyond their current life. If I press them to go completely overboard, they’ll respond with: “But I could never afford to live like that.”
What they don’t understand is that the point of goals is not to know how you’ll achieve them. In fact, Bob Proctor said: “If you know what to do to reach your goal, it’s not a big enough goal.”
Your mission is to do what Neo needed to do in the Matrix: “Free your mind”.

Task 1: Reason is overrated
There is a place for reason. A goal isn’t worthless just because you know how to reach it, and yet, I agree that at least some of your goals or dreams should be far outside of what you think possible.
Examine what keeps you from dreaming big. Do you feel a little silly? But imagination is limitless, and so is creativity. Do you think it’s impossible? Fact is, lots of people have achieved things far beyond what they thought they could. The evidence is plenty.
Thinking creatively, going beyond, even into the realm of silliness, is a skill you can learn. Set yourself a reminder once a week for “dream time”.
Task 2: Program your mind for your dreams
This is an ongoing task and will take some time. Basically, you need to brainwash yourself. Here are a few steps for you to take:
- Read something positive every day. Include books on finances (try Amanda Steinberg or Jen Sincero). Make time for it.
- Follow blogs, podcasts, YouTube channels by personal development experts. You could start with my newsletter and videos!
- Surround yourself by positive people. Know anyone who’s into this stuff? Seek them out and spend more time with them.
