Everyone has dreams. But there are 2 types of dreams.
Those we have that remain in our mind as nothing more than thoughts, that take us nowhere, achieve nothing, other than the time we spend thinking about them.
For example - you can dream about meeting your favourite movie star.
Having dinner with them, maybe even starring in their next movie! Is that likely to ever come true. As much as you may hope it does, the reality is, probably not going to happen.
The type of dreams we need to focus on are the ones we can make a reality.
If you have a dream to have a better quality lifestyle, to enjoy life more and do the things you really want to do, well that is something you can make happen. For instance - say you'd like to travel. See the world. Is there somewhere you have always wanted to go. The Greek Islands, Disneyland, Las Vegas, Tahiti? What's stopping you?
Not enough money, not enough time. Two of the most universally used 'excuses' and neither of them acceptable! We all have the ability to make money, and we all have the same amount of time - 24 hours per day. Money and time aren't stopping you. You are stopping you.
Attitude, fear, limited thinking, low self-esteem and lack of confidence are what stops so many people from achieving their goals and living their dreams.
The first mistake people make is that they compare themselves to others. We are all unique individuals. There is no one else exactly like you. Why waste time wishing you were someone else. Their life might not be as great as you think it is, and while you spend time wishing your life away you're wasting valuable time that would be better spent working on your own dreams.
Achieving goals takes practice. It's better to start small. Write down 10 things you'd like to achieve this year. Then go through your list and focus on one that is not too big, to get you started. For example: perhaps you want to earn some extra money.
Okay let's look at it realistically. You may not make an extra million dollars this year, but how about an extra $500 per month. That is quite possible. Here's how:
- Know what you want - write it where you can see it everyday.
- Believe it will happen - you must have faith and confidence in yourself.
- Take action - you've set your goal now create a plan to make it happen.
- Be grateful - when you achieve it, give thanks and congratulate yourself.
Setting goals and achieving your dreams are your responsibility. Use your strengths and work on your weaknesses. A better YOU equals a better LIFE.
