There comes a certain point in your life when you ask yourself, “Is this what I’m supposed to be doing? Is this what I really want to be doing? Am I moving towards the direction of my dreams and aspirations in life?”
Each one has their own dreams and those dreams have led us to establish the goals that we have in life. However, it takes a lot of effort and dedication for us to work on those goals and to achieve the dream. You need to constantly strive to move toward it. Initially, there is a large gap between where you are and where you want to be. Each person has the responsibility to narrow that gap by concurrently so that our goals and dreams become closer and easier to achieve.
Some people rely a little too much on luck when it comes to accomplishing things. But as much as you want to believe that is effective, it isn’t. It just doesn’t work that way. On the hand, those who have worked a little bit at a time to chip away at their goals find positive results drawing closer and closer.
When you dream about the future, how do you project yourself in it?
Then ask yourself, “Am I willing to move toward that projection of where I want to be?”
Did you answer yes? Then with the right combination of hard work, faith and perseverance, you should be well on your way. Grab every chance or opportunity that you get to help you achieve your dreams so that you can veer away from what you hate doing to get you closer to the one that you love.
How can you achieve your goals?
- Create a game plane with clear, specific goals. The only way to achieve what you want is to know exactly what you are trying to achieve. Write down every detail with as much description as you can. The process of writing the goals down and putting everything into words gives you clarity to keep a vivid image of it in your mind. Then when you read through that description later, you’ll remember exactly where you were headed and remain motivated.
- Break down huge goals into smaller steps. You’ve set up a major goal you’re working toward, but now it’s time to break it down a bit. First start by creating a few big milestones along the way, and then break those down even further until you’ve got a bunch of little steps to walk along. What are the steps you could take to help you move toward your goals? In what sequence do those steps need to be? What are the actions that need to be done every day to keep you on the right track towards the goal? Once you have figured out all these questions, it will be easier to create an action plan. For example, if you want to pay off your credit card debt, you need to first figure out how much you owe, then create a bunch of solid actions which will help you gather the money to pay off that debt.
- Actions speak louder than words. Now that you have a solid idea of how you want things to turn out, it’s time to get a move on. You’ve just created an action plan which will be helpful to keep you moving forward as well as allow you to anticipate what should be done next. There may be unexpected occurrences along the way and you need to be flexible to adjust to them, but the good news is, the action plan allows you to be adaptable without having to go off course.
- Work hard to bring your dream closer to you. After you have established your action plan, you should now start working your way to actively close the gap between where you are right now and where you want to be. Until now, you have been projecting yourself into what you want to see in the future. But now, you should allow yourself to become part of that reality in a present tense. You shall now become the stationary object and your goals are taking the place of something that is moving towards you. You can’t sit around and wait for things to happen, make it happen. Make those dreams a reality by grabbing every opportunity that comes your way.
