Success does not come naturally. The majority of us are not born into it so we are left with aspirations and dreams. If the dreams aren’t served on a silver platter, many may feel like they are completely out of reach. If you truly put you mind to it, nothing is impossible. Accomplishing you biggest goals can be as simple as completing your previous goals. Don’t rely on a miracle to change you life overnight. Instead, make a deadline for your goals and proceed with your head high knowing that nothing can stop you.
Although it may seem irrational, reminding yourself of your life long goals is a key to keeping yourself on track. Would you rather work for an unknown reward or know for a fact that you will be paid at the end of the day? Find some paper so that you can make a list. Write down exactly what you want that would truly warm your heart. This could be a new car or the ability to better provide for the homeless. Make sure to also be specific. If you want a car, don’t simply write down “new car”. Take the time to identify what your dream car is. Sure everyone would want a Lamborghini, but in reality we all don’t share the same taste in vehicles. You may actually want a different high end vehicle that you don’t even know the name of! Savoir this moment to ponder. Explore your mind and write down exactly what it wants.
Once you have laid out your material goals and personal desires, find out how much it will take to do so. Put a dollar value on your goal, if you have too. By knowing what it will take to reach your goals, you can proceed to the last step of planning. Begin dissecting your goals further until you know exactly how to reach them. For example, if your dream car is going to cost two-hundred thousand dollars, then break the end goal down into smaller ones, like five thousand, which can actually be attained. Once you meet a milestone in your goal chasing, make another one that’s still manageable but a little more challenging. By approaching you dreams directly instead of waiting for them to just happen, you will begin to see yourself conquer tasks that you never truly thought possible.
