Goals, Planning and the X Factor

Lauren PlattI confess I’m a bit of an X Factor addict.  Sad, I know.

Last weekend I was mooching around on You Tube, catching up on the latest videos clips when I discovered that little 17 year old Lauren Platt had been voted off in the semi-finals.  Just goes to show that talent sometimes isn’t as important as marketing.  I reckon Ben Haenow’s going to win just because he’s been packaged so well.  Ho hum…

What struck me though about Lauren was, when asked in her final interview how she felt about being on the X Factor, she said she had dreamed of it since she was 8 year old, and couldn’t wait to be old enough (16) to enter the competition.

She had dreamed of it almost ALL her life!!

I’m betting she sang in front of the mirror in her bedroom every day, dreaming of the day that she would perform in front of millions of viewers, imagining it until it was etched in her subconscious mind so that when it happened, it was like the next logical step for her to take.  No big deal in fact.

She knew it would happen.  She believed in herself and this outcome so completely, it was inevitable.

Winning the competition was irrelevant, she had made her dream come true anyway.

I’m taking the whole day off tomorrow to plan 2015 for me and my business, and I have some big dreams.

Big dreams or small dreams, it doesn’t matter, they all need equal attention if they are to come into reality for us.

What are your dreams for 2015?

What would be a great result for you and your business in the next 12 months?

How will you know when you have reached the goal, or made that dream come true?

Leave me a comment in the box below, I’d love to hear from you.  And if you need some help making your dreams come true, send me an email at yvonne@bedandbreakfastcoach.com.  I’m here for you 🙂
