					Have you ever had a dream so big that you had no idea how to accomplish
it? The dream is there, in the background of your mind, gnawing at you
and clamoring for your attention.

For many busy entrepreneurs, you might start to feel like the dream is
slowly dieing. With everything you have to do to generate financial
results, you never have time to focus on the dream. You are always busy
running your business, making money, taking care of your clients, etc.
Who has time to chase their dreams?

When you let your dream die, it affects your passion. Without passion,
running your business can start to feel like work (who wants that?).
Passion is the fuel that gets you going every day, provides the stamina
to overcome the challenges and obstacles, and inspires you to think
bigger.

Recently I saw an Oprah special called “Building a Dream” about the
launch of her Leadership Academy for young girls in South Africa. As I
watched the show, I realized that Oprah has been visioning this school
for a long time. She had clarity about so many details -- from the
uniforms to even the brick color of the building. It has been the fuel
that keeps her going ever day, overcoming the big obstacles that have
risen in running a billion dollar empire.

We all know that Oprah is very busy with her show and her magazine. How
she brought her dream to life and fulfilled her passion was by
surrounding herself with a team of people who could bring her vision to
life.

If you study billionaires (which I do) you will learn a special leverage
technique they all use to manifest their dreams into reality. I’ve seen
this technique used by Oprah, Donald Trump, Bill Gates, and Richard
Branson. The technique: build a team to bring the vision to life.

Here are five tips to help you get started:

1. Stay focused on the vision. Michael Gerber’s In the Dreaming Room
covers the power of what your REAL job is (and by the way, it’s not
getting lost in the day-to-day management.) It’s all about creating a
vision so big that it pulls you forward.

2. Do YOUR job. Your job is to stay focused on high payoff activities.
Let others do what they do best. Bookkeeping, housecleaning, graphic
design, website updates, filtering emails and phone calls are all low
payoff activities for the average business owner yet you many spend
thousands of billable hours a month on these tasks.

3. Surround yourself with powerful implementers. When you leverage your
time and build a team of good people, then your dreams become real 100
times faster. Most entrepreneurs are really great with ideas but lose
traction when it comes to details and managing projects.

4. Start sooner. In completing the Virtual Team Building Secrets
interviews, one thing I found in common with all five experts is they
waited too long to build their team. It cost them time, money and sanity.
The billionaires I studied all took the risk to build a team immediately.

5. Let go. Once you create your power team, be sure to learn to delegate
well. It doesn’t do anyone any good if you hold the reigns too tight. A
golden rule of delegation is, “Commit to the outcome, let go of the path
to get there.”

Its time to start building YOUR team. It’s the fastest way to create more
time, free up energy and make progress in bringing your vision to life
