Welcome to Your Unlimited Life, I’m Carlos Marin author of Ultimate Success Formula and founder of the Unlimited Success Academy. Today’s show will give you great insight on the most important element to getting and staying motivated in life.
Last week we talked about taking ownership of your life and results and once you’ve decided to do that, the very next step you must take is to get clarity of vision – in other words, decide precisely where you want to go.
I tell people all the time you can be, do and have anything you desire if you learn the strategies and develop the mindset of the person who already has what you want in life.
But, how can you attain something that you don’t define? So strategy #1 is to develop a super compelling dream because if you don’t it’s impossible to keep the motivation to do anything.
You see, motivation is a motive so compelling that it literally pulls you to take action. It comes from loving your dream so much that you just have to have it.
Have you ever wanted anything so badly that you thought you were going to die if you didn’t get it? Maybe it was a new bike or a doll when you were a kid or a new car or purse when you got older. Or maybe it was a job or going to a certain college. It’s like falling in love. You’ve been in love before, right? Do you remember what that felt like? That person was all you could think about morning, noon & night, right? You just kept imagining how great life would be having them by your side sharing our lives and having fun together. It was so compelling that you had no choice but to take massive action to make it happen.
You have to get a clear vision/dream for your life that you absolutely love so it compels you, pulls you to take action.
When I started in business, I didn’t have a clear vision. So like most people I had good days and bad days. It was up and down like a roller coaster ride. Have you ever been there? I kept procrastinating doing the things I needed to do to succeed. I couldn’t figure out how to motivate myself but that’s because I didn’t have a big dream for my life. I wanted to get ahead but I had not clarified and quantified what I wanted.
You see, it’s not enough to want to get ahead, or make more money, you have to be specific and explicit about what you want- better yet what you’d absolutely love to have in your life. When you have that, everything changes because that dream pulls you and draws you to it and it to you.
So I want you to invest a few minutes after this program is over for getting real clarity for your life to determine what your dream is, and don’t tell me, Carlos, I’ve set goals before and I’m still not where I want to be. You’ve also taken a shower before but that doesn’t mean you’re not going to take another one again today – hopefully you do this every day!! Right?
You may have done goal setting before but you haven’t done my process with me and my focused intention is to help you get immediate and measurable results right here, right now so you can create the life of your dreams. But think about it, how can you create the life of your dreams if you haven’t decided what that dream life looks like?
So here’s what you’re going to do…

This exercise is a brainstorming session – do you know what brainstorming is? It’s a storm or whirlwind of ideas. First you get in a receptive mental state – you take a few deep breaths, you relax and imagine that God or the Universe is granting you all of your wishes and then you start thinking about everything you might want in the rest of your life. You don’t censor, edit or judge anything. You don’t ask if you’re worthy or deserve it. You simply assume God loves you and wants to give you all the desires of your heart and you write everything that comes into your mind that you even remotely might want to Be, Do, Have or Give in 4 key areas of your life.
The first area is…
- Financial – Business – Career: This area is about your business, career or profession what you want to achieve in position, fame, recognition, accomplishments, titles, etc and it is also about income, net worth, sales revenues, size of company, going public, contribution, legacy. The clearer you are and bigger you think the more it will pull you toward it and the faster it will.
The next area is your…
- Health – Wellness – Physical Body: this is about the health, wellness and longevity you want to enjoy personally and help provide for your loved ones. It’s also the physical body you’d love to have. Looking good is important because it makes you feel good which increases your confidence. Include everything you want to be, do and have in this area.
- Relationships – Here write down everything you want in both romantic relationship, soul mate, spouse, lover, significant other and also with your family, loved ones, friends and business associates. Remember, don’t pre-judge or allow feelings of unworthiness to rob you in this important area. Write what you’d love your relationships to be like.
- Emotional & Spiritual: What emotional states do you want to experience in your life (joy, happiness, love, courage, success, creativity, peace, wealth, confidence, fun, etc). What kind of mindset do you want to have? What spiritual states do you want to feel & experience? What relationship do you want with the Universe, God, with yourself?
As you go through this exercise, the key is to think BIG, write down everything that inspires you, that uplifts you, the things you’d love to be, to do, to have and to give if failure was impossible.
Remember, do not censor yourself or prejudge if it’s possible or not. For a dream to really move you it has to be so big that you don’t actually know how you’ll get it right now? It has to stretch you and even scare you a little bit. All those things you were in love with that you thought you’d die if you didn’t get in the past, you didn’t know how you’d get them. You just knew you had to get them and they motivated you to do anything you could, try anything you had to in order to get them. That’s what we want to go for here, define things that really move you that if you had these things would make your life joyful, fun, fulfilling and meaningful.
Brainstorm this – have fun doing it. Go into this exercise with the spirit of a child where everything is possible. Have fun doing it and I’ll see you again next week on our next episode.
