Everybody does have big dreams. Why are we not achieving them? What can we learn from other people, their dreams and success? Let us learn from Viktor Frankl, the famous Austrian Jewish neurologist and psychiatrist. Do you realize that you will not be able to change the circumstances surrounding you... only your attitude. The only change you can make is your attitude towards those circumstances. Read more about this principle in the writings of Viktor Frankl in his famous book Man’s search for Meaning.

Part 8 - You, your circumstances and big money dreams

  1. 1. The Complete Home Based Business Success Formula Brought to you by: www.dream-it-plan-it-do-it.com Home Based Business: Achieve your financial independence in the global economy of the 21st century
  2. 2. You, Your Circumstances And BIG Money DREAMS “When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.” Viktor Frankl Change Your Attitude To Achieve Your Dreams Everybody does have big dreams. Why are we not achieving them? What can we learn from other people, their dreams and success? Let us learn from Viktor Frankl, the famous Austrian Jewish neurologist and psychiatrist. Do you realise that you will not be able to change the circumstances surrounding you... only your attitude. The only change you can make is your attitude towards those circumstances. Read more about this principle in the writings of Viktor Frankl in his famous book Man’s search for Meaning.
  3. 3. I have learned so much from him. I want to share some thoughts with you. Read about his survival in the Auschwitz concentration camp in Germany during World War 2 and the wisdom of this brilliant thinker and scientist. These lessons and principles do apply to you and me today. We are lucky that we have not been in the camp as he was. He had success by changing his attitude in these difficult situations and survived. Why do people like these and many others survive, live their dreams and make a success in life and others do not? What can we learn from them? I want to discuss some of the lessons we can learn from them and see to what extend it can help us to live our dream. The biggest lesson I learn from Victor Frankl is that I must accept that I cannot change the circumstances surrounding me. The only thing I do have control over is my attitude towards those circumstances. I can change my attitude.
  4. 4. My Attitude You may have one or many circumstances surrounding you that, according to your argument and way of looking at life, you cannot change and it prevents you from implementing and achieving your dreams. It may be one of the following: - The economic uncertainty - The political situation in your country - Your boss - Your wife... mother-in-law... mother or father... other members of your family... - The crime in your country - Your health - Your bank account... bank manager... - Your salary - Other factors Everybody does have circumstances that they do not want or like and would prefer to change. We do not take action to live our dreams because we blame the circumstances. With this attitude, our life is getting worse. More and new circumstances will develop and change will become more difficult while we wait for better days. Why...?
  5. 5. According to Viktor Frankl you should change what you can change – your attitude. Accept those things in life that you cannot change. Do not wait for those things to change as you will lose out in life and your situation will become worse because you do not take action to live your dreams and improve your own situation in life. How did Viktor Frankl find the meaning in life that helped him to change his attitude, survive, and live his dream? I want to give you a quote to explain it: “An example of Frankl’s idea of finding meaning in the midst of extreme suffering is found in his account of an experience he had while working in the harsh conditions of the Nazi’s concentration camps: “We stumbled on in the darkness, over big stones and through large puddles, along the one road leading from the camp. The accompanying guards kept shouting at us and driving us with the butts of their rifles. Anyone with very sore feet supported himself on his neighbour’s arm. Hardly a word was spoken; the icy wind did not encourage talk. Hiding his mouth behind his upturned collar, the man marching next to me whispered suddenly: “If our wives could see us now! I do hope they are better off in their camps and don’t know what is happening to us.”
  6. 6. That brought thoughts of my own wife to mind. And as we stumbled on for miles, slipping on icy spots, supporting each other time and again, dragging one another up and onward, nothing was said, but we both knew: each of us was thinking of his wife. Occasionally I looked at the sky, where the stars were fading and the pink light of the morning was beginning to spread behind a dark bank of clouds. But my mind clung to my wife’s image, imagining it with an uncanny acuteness. I heard her answering me, saw her smile, her frank and encouraging look. Real or not, her look was then more luminous than the sun which was beginning to rise.
  7. 7. A thought transfixed me: for the first time in my life I saw the truth as it is set into song by so many poets, proclaimed as the final wisdom by so many thinkers. The truth – that love is the ultimate and the highest goal to which man can aspire. Then I grasped the meaning of the greatest secret that human poetry and human thought and belief have to impart: The salvation of man is through love and in love. I understood how a man who has nothing left in this world still may know bliss, be it only for a brief moment, in the contemplation of his beloved. In a position of utter desolation, when man cannot express himself in positive action, when his only achievement may consist in enduring his sufferings in the right way – an honourable way – in such a position man can, through loving contemplation of the image he carries of his beloved, achieve fulfilment. For the first time in my life I was able to understand the meaning of the words. “The angels are lost inperpetual contemplationof aninfinite glory.”
  8. 8. What I learned from this: He realised that he cannot do anything about his situation. While he was thinking of his wife and the relationship between them, he realised that that he cannot avoid suffering but he can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. He discovered that man’s primary drive is not pleasure, but the dream and drive to achieve something bigger and what man finds to be more meaningful. Whatever the circumstances are, I must have a bigger dream that is meaningful and drive myself to achieve that dream. The first step on our road to achieve our dreams is to change our attitude and find a bigger meaning in the dreams we have. Then start on your journey to financial self-sufficiency. If you can dreamit, plan it doit that will be this journey to your success. If you can dream it, plan it, and do it you can realise your personal goals. I am going to discuss ways to find those bigger meanings in your dreams with you. Your challenge is to decide if you are willing to change your attitude towards your situation.
