Do not lose hold of your dreams or aspirations. For if you do, you may still exist but you have ceased to live. – Henry David Thoreau
Dreams and aspirations are the stuff that makes life worth living, yet everyday so many go unfulfilled. Can you imagine how much more gratifying your life would be if you could attain just some of these unmet dreams?
So what can you do to accomplish these goals?
Define your goals – write them down, be clear on what it is you want to achieve.
Develop a plan of action – identify what it will take for you to successfully reach these goals, and map out a path.
Dream of success – Imagine what it would be like when you have scaled that mountain and achieve that dream.
Differentiate between your goals – some goals are short term and can be accomplished quickly, while other take time to develop and grow. Some may be accomplished in days, weeks or months, while others will take years. Abraham did not inhabit the promise land, nor did Martin Luther King Jr. see the dream fulfilled.
Highlight every step – congratulate yourself with every move you make towards the goal. Rome wasn’t built in a day!
Celebrate the milestones – these are the signposts, which help to make the journey more enjoyable, and keep you going.
Make adjustments - Don’t be afraid to change direction if circumstance demands it. This is especially true when dealing with longer-term goals where conditions may change along the way.
