The 14 Necessary Thoughts Creators Must Think to Actualize


The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

Opportunities will come and go, but if you do nothing about them, so will you.

Startup life requires multi-dimensional thinking. Level up.


You can’t change and be somebody else in the future unless you start becoming a little better at being that future person today.

1. Do you tell yourself that you will do things differently and be somebody else in the future when your circumstances change?⁣⁣

2. You’re that little kid years ago the world was banking on to change the world today.⁣⁣
3. The future IS now.⁣⁣
4. ✊ There is nothing you can do in the future.⁣⁣
5. Don’t believe you cannot do something in the future? Test it. Do something in the future right now. Did it work? Nope? Ok. Back to the present, Marty.⁣⁣
6. You can’t change and be somebody else in the future unless you start becoming a little better at being that future person today.⁣⁣
7. 🐬 The key to success in the future is to be that person you see in the future (the true you) now.⁣⁣
8. Be yourself — your true self — that great person deep inside your head that could do anything if circumstances were different.⁣⁣
9. 👾 We’re all scared. All of us. In fact, I’m afraid every day.⁣⁣ If I’m not afraid, I must not be doing something I need to be doing.⁣⁣
10. When you’re doing important work, you feel fear because you don’t want to fail.⁣⁣
11. The challenge is to not let the fear stop you from doing the work that will enable you to achieve your goals.⁣⁣

12. You need to recognize the fear for what it is and allow your “why” (your compelling vision) for what you’re doing be bigger than the fear itself. Like a mama bear fighting for her cubs. ⁣⁣
13. Achievers are actually MORE afraid than non-achievers.⁣⁣ Achievers are afraid that if they give into their fears, their pain will actually be greater than if they face their fears.⁣⁣

14. People who succeed are more afraid of what will happen if they don’t follow through. ⁣⁣

Which of the 14 necessary thoughts do you think might help someone take action on an idea? Comment. I’m curious.

As you build your startup, your life, your family, your career…

…especially if you’re at the top and wondering how to get to the next peak without climbing down…

Consider this:

Every sunset is an opportunity to reset.


I’ve put a bunch of trainings and resources and even hand-holding programs for free right here. I actually care if you use them or not, but you’re your own person. 10s of thousands have watched these live trainings, recorded trainings, step-by-step challenges, etc…with success. So…whatever. Up to you. IF you do grab one or all of them, I hope you make magic. It feels good. Nothing is more thrilling than actualizing, serving others and making meaning while making bank.

Peace. Take a Look and Download Free Love Here.
