I want you to achieve all your wildest dreams and I know you can. You showed up again for this video, which unless you just want to see what I’m wearing or listen to my dulcet tones, means you want more. You want to be extraordinary. You want to achieve with a capital A.
I want to leave my footprints on the sands of time, know there was something there, something that I left behind. When I leave this world, I’ll leave no regrets, leave something to remember so they won’t forget I was here.
Welcome to the Samantha Leith Show with your hostess with the mostest, me, Samantha Leith. I can’t believe I haven’t said that yet in all these episodes. That’s crazy. I should have said that. Anyway, back to the show.
Chances are there’s something in your life that you’ve always wanted to do, but for some reason you haven’t. This month we’re looking at the magic that is Dream, Believe, Act, and Achieve framework. It’s the framework I use for myself and my clients to take something from inside our hearts and our minds and to make it actually happen. Let’s go.
What exactly am I going to do in this episode? Achieve seems so, yeah, yeah, whatever. Maybe I should open a bottle of champagne and celebrate all that you’ve done. There, that’ll do. Nope. Nope. Your dreams are not a one and done thing people. If you truly have a growth mindset, by the time you’ve come close to achieving a dream you’ve probably come up with another one. You know I’m right. You know what I mean? You start working towards running that 5k, and as you get fitter and feel better about yourself, you think of the next thing you want to achieve, doesn’t even have to be in the same arena.
Our big dreams are just like this, at our core, we want more. And I’m not talking about not ever being satisfied because that can get you into a whole lot of trouble. After all, we have to have gratitude for where we are right now in order to achieve more. Let’s tie the whole Dream, Believe, Act, and Achieve framework together. One of the most universally believed ideas is that our thoughts create our feelings, which determine our actions, which lead to our results. Many a wise person has spoken about this in their own way because it’s true. Our mind is responsible for everything in our lives.
What I hope to support you to achieve, your dreams. You got to use your mind to achieve your dreams. Back to the worksheet, samanthaleith.com freebies. But you should’ve probably downloaded it by now, people. I want you to cement the last couple of weeks, so we’re going to write it down again. Repetition is so good for us. How many of you could still do all your timetables if I asked you to? I know DBAA is in a great acronym, DBAA, but it’s what I’ve got. Maybe I could jumble it up and call it BAAD.
Anyway, in the D section, I want you to write one of your dreams. Easy. In the B section, I want you to write the belief or beliefs you need to achieve that dream. In the A section I want… I should do that. I want you to write the actions you need to take every single day to achieve the dream. And before we get to the last bonus A section, I’m going to explain it in greater detail.
It may seem confusing, me asking you to write how you’ll know you’ve achieved this dream and what you’re going to do to celebrate it. Probably because it is a little bit, but it’s not. Your dream as you wrote it may be a wee bit dreamy. They’re not typically a concrete goal, like adding 10,000 people to your email list by the end of 2022. They’re usually more like helping millions through my charity work or being an incredible husband and father. Well, what are the specifics of that?
I like to ask my clients, and yes, I do this myself so I can come up with five or 10 concrete things that’ll show you, or me, that you bloody well did it. Let’s go back to the husband idea, shall we? For some reason, I’m in the mood for love. That’s very tough when you’re single. Anyway. An incredible husband and father may have things like, never traveling for more than two nights for business without taking one or more family members with me, getting the kids ready for school so my wife can go to Pilates. I always remember important dates and events, regular date nights. I support my family in any way I can. These micro achievements that form part of your dream are like lighthouses saying. “This way, this way.” And if it works better for you, you can do this step earlier on in the process.
We’re going to stick with Mr. Dreamy here. He knows to achieve his dream he has to take certain actions. Some of them might be diarizing important dates with reminders to buy gifts, et cetera. Scheduling and booking fabulous things for one date night a month. Asking at dinner every night if anyone needs anything or how he can help support them. Booking in his PT for after work, so his mornings are free for the kids.
Look, I know some of you might be thinking, bloody hell, Sam, you want us to do all this work when we’re actually doing any of the work, I’m exhausted. It’s about our brains. Thankfully, because of the wonders of neuroplasticity, the more we think and do things the more likely they are to change our wiring, literally, and help you to be the best you that you can be. Oh, and how might the dreamboat, maybe I should get back on Bumble, celebrate being a rock star husband and father. I’m thinking a grand adventure with the family doing the Northern Lights and Santa’s Village. God, that sounds good.
But what if he’s not even married? What the actual Samantha Mary? Then his A for action might look like, getting on a dating app, going on a minimum of one date a week. Spending time every day meditating on his vision for a partnership, working with a life coach to get clear on his values and his life’s purpose. This stuff works for anyone with any dream, I promise. I want you to achieve all your wildest dreams, and I know you can. You showed up again for this video, which unless you just want to see what I’m wearing or listen to my dulcet tones, means you want more. You want to be extraordinary, you want to achieve with a capital A. You’ve cultivated your growth mindset so strong that all this stuff is starting to become second nature to you. You want to do the work every day to live your best life. You’ve ditched the past and you’re fully present in your life. You know how to choose the thoughts and beliefs that empower you.
You know that every time you fail, it’s a greater lesson for your greater good. You decide, in an instant, if something is moving you towards your goals or away from them. You’re disciplined and you’re tenacious. You embody the x-factor way of having absolute clarity, confidence in yourself, the courage to do the hard things and the charisma it takes to get there. You never make excuses. You know that you can learn and improve in any area. You don’t tell people around you how to be better, you inspire them by being better yourself.
As far as we know, we only get one shot at this thing called life so why not make it an extraordinary one? And if you’re watching this thinking, as I’ve done so many times in my life, it’s too late for me. It’s not. It never is. You may just add your name to the list of the world’s oldest marathon runners. I wish someone had taught me all of this when I was younger. Maybe then I wouldn’t have believed that I couldn’t be a famous singer because of my weight. I never really did all the work. Yeah, I didn’t. You only have to have sung along to an Adele song at some stage in the last 20 years, 10 years, 15 years, don’t even know, that it’s not true.
And even when I was younger, if I’d known to look for proof that that belief was wrong, that it was so achievable, I would’ve been able to find it. It was there, it always was. Now, before people message me and say, “It’s not too late, remember, Samantha,” it’s no longer my dream. I still sing sometimes where and when I want to, but that’s singer’s life, no, it’s not what motivates me. This is my stage of life right now as it is yours. Perfect for right now. It’s your life. You get to change your mind and have priorities and dreams that work for you where you are right now. The dreams and the goals you’re chasing.
This show in this format was a dream of mine and I showed up and did the work. I’ve loved every second of it and now it’s time for a change of how I do it. And repeat after me, that’s okay. 52 episodes, 12 songs, frocks, sets, all the earrings, [inaudible 00:09:27] out the wazoo, over 75,000 words pouring out for me with the hope that they entertain, educate, or empower you. And yes, I followed this very [inaudible 00:09:37] framework to make it happen. I can’t wait to see what you can achieve as you take the steps to make your dreams happen. Go for it.
Thank you so much for watching this week’s episode of the Samantha Leith Show. I totally believe you have what it takes to be extraordinary, and this framework is one of the tools that can help you get there and, well, to believe in yourself.
