This article is going to be something different, it’s not going to be about getting leads, or ranking on page one of Google, or making money, I’ve written so many of those… or maybe it is about all that too, because once you start doing these 4 simple things each day, you will start seeing results whatever you are into.
I know because I’ve been doing them since almost I was born (most of the time subconsciously).
Before I start, I’ll tell you a story real quick to see how powerful these 4 simple techniques are.
The year was 1995, maybe 96, me and a friend of mine were standing in front of a cool bimmer, that looked like a space ship to me, and I said to myself right this moment:
“Vladi, you are going to have such a car no matter what”
Fast forward a few years and I bought the same bimmer that made me a millionaire at 22.
How awesome is that?
And I didn’t even know what I was doing back then, I didn’t know I was imagining my dream and setting goals.
Just about 4 or 5 years ago I started studying those 4 simple things, and the other day I was at a Jumbo store (kinda like WallMart but for kids) and I saw this poster:
Bought it right away and put it above my desk, and I have to tell you even though I knew about them. the poster still makes me feel better and better each time I look at it.
1 Imagine your dream
You have to imagine your dream just like I did when I was 10.
I said to myself, back then, I was going to have that car and somehow I did it, even though it was several years later.
If someone had told me I was going to drive that bimmer, I probably wouldn’t have believed them, I did not even believe myself, but I imagined it.
I imagined myself driving that car, even though I did not believe that much it would happen, I guess the universe knows its job… and believe me, I’ve never understood the universe, I have always had to work pretty damn hard for everything I have.
Most people who don’t get what they want don’t really know what they what, although they think they do.
Think about that for a while.
If I came to you right now and asked:
“what are your goals?”
…would you be ready to answer fast?
You have to be.
But you will be amazed how many people I ask and they think and think… and then say something general like:
“I want to be rich”
“I want to work on the beach”
That’s not exactly the right answer.

2 Create your happiness
I do this:
1 I get up
2 I ask myself out loud:
“what shall I do today to make myself happier?
3 I do that thing
Even if it’s something small, like getting an energy drink (I know they are not that healthy, but I love monster) that would just make me happy for an hour or two, I do it.
I used to be all about working as much as possible and enjoying stuff later, when I’d supposedly have achieved my goals… well, as goals get bigger, that moment never comes.
If you are anything like that, you have to stop doing this right now and start enjoying the little things.
That’s what I did, one day several years ago, I was like:
‘what the f… is wrong with me? I make money and I’m not happy, I buy stuff and I’m not happy, I do what I want and I’m not happy… I have to change something”
…and then I started doing what I just told you, turned out it wasn’t money, or wealth, or whatever, that created my happiness, it was me, just like it is you who creates yours!
3 Live Your Life
Man, this is possibly the most important, and at the same time hardest, thing I had to learn to do.
I thought I was living before, but I really was not. I told you about becoming a millionaire early and all that, I did it because I had always been thinking about growing and growing fast (and I still do)…
…but I forgot I had to live while growing… and this is just ridiculous, but most people do it too.
If you are one of these people, stop this right now and start living your life, there is no better time than now… believe me, you don’t want to miss out on the crazy shit happening right this moment (like for example me drinking a coffee, that crazy LOL).
4 Love every moment
I love writing articles like this, and I’m glad I wrote it.
I know this one is tough, but life is weird – the more you enjoy it, the more enjoyable it becomes, and the way to enjoy it is to love as many moments as you can… or even better – love each moment.
You can test these 4 simple things each day for 30 days and see what happens, you will be amazed what your life would become.
I’d love it if you let me know if you liked this article.
Thanks, you ROCK!
