Of course you're dreaming! We all have dreams. We all have things we would love to accomplish or become someday. Today I challenge you to turn your dreams into reality. We are all capable of doing this. The first key is to START. Just break it down and take it one step at a time.
- Write down your dreams. Once a dream is written down, it becomes a goal.
- Write down three steps that will bring your goal closer to reality. Three steps feel more attainable than an open-ended dream.
- Make a timeline. If you write down an actual date or deadline to work towards, you are more likely to accomplish your goal. A deadline will help make your journey feel real.
- Make a reward. What will happen when you achieve your goal? A shopping spree? A trip? A night out on the town? Or the simple, yet satisfying feeling of realizing your dream has come true!
The third key is to believe in yourself; believe that you deserve to be happy; believe that you are capable of making things happen. When you have this kind of faith in yourself, you've got the world in your hands. Do something great with your golden opportunity.
Finally, don't give up! Too often, we give up on our dreams if they don't happen on the first try. We figure we're better off, or tell ourselves, It was just a dream! Remember, Rome was not built in a day. Your dream might take years and years of hard work before it becomes a reality. But, that glorious day of celebration will never come if your dream gets sidelined by self-doubt.
Every dream is worth working for. Dream big, then work hard. You are just as deserving to have your dreams come true as anyone else. What will set you apart from the next person, is how hard you work to turn your dreams into reality.
