What is the difference between dreamers and achievers?

According to Steve Jobs, there is one crucial difference between dreamers and achievers, and it’s one of the best kept secrets.

When most people think about dreams, desires and striving, they become paralyzed thinking about all the negative things that could happen.

They allow their self-talk to be flooded with “What if” statements like, “What if I get rejected?” “What if they laugh at me?” and “What if I’m not ready?”

So what’s the secret?

The people who make an impact are the ones who push through fear and silence their doubts by focusing on the potential positive outcomes: “What if they say yes?” “What if they know a friend who can help me?” “What if this is my big break?”

Replace the old adage “Good things come to those who wait,” with “Dreams are MISSED by those who wait”.

The crucial difference between people who get what they want and those who don’t is the vivid realization that the pain of rejection is not nearly as painful as NOT achieving the dream.

What if you take a chance, what’s the worst that will happen?
