Stop Thinking, Start Talking!

"You will create the conditions you talk about."

That statement was made at the start of the 2022 10X Growth Con. Unfortunately, I don't remember who said it, but at least I captured the idea!

"You will create the conditions you talk about."


If you want things (dreams, goals) to materialize in your life, you need to stop thinking about them and start talking about them.

A lot.

To anyone and everyone.

As an evangelical Christian, I don't subscribe to karma or the secret, but I believe dreams and goals don't just happen.

Yes, you have to want them to happen.

And you need to be willing to do the work.

But you also have to get these ideas out of your head and into the world by talking about them!

For example, one of the things I want is a private jet.

I probably won't have one for a couple of years.

But that doesn't dissuade me.

Nope. Not at all.

I talk about how I will own a private jet to everyone.

Someday, I will have one.

And I want more than my own plane.

I also want to become a billionaire (which would help with the plane, right?).


What does it matter?

But I will answer the question just the same: having lots of money gives me a lot of choices.

Plus, I can help A LOT of people, starting with my parents (Dad, 81, and Mom, 77, who is in long-term care due to her having late-onset Alzheimer's).

What's in your brain? 

What do you want?

Don't keep it inside your brain.

Talk about it a lot to everyone.

There is no guarantee that speaking it (a lot!) will make it happen, but I do it more to constantly assure myself that not only do I want <fill in the blank) but I will do whatever I need to do to make it happen.

A word of caution 

As you start speaking about your BIG goals and dreams, some people will make fun of you or call you a dreamer.

When this happens, know that your goals are the right size!

On the flip side, if no one criticizes your dreams, they are not big enough.

Dream bigger!

Here's that quote one more time. I encourage you to write this down where you see it every day!

"You will create the conditions you talk about."
