Yes, contrary to conventional wisdom you can
accomplish anything in your life you want – you
just can’t accomplish everything – there isn’t
enough time (that is unless you have set the bar
really low). You have to focus on what is
important and why and never give in or up to
outside negative influence or allow inside
negative messages cause you to let go of
hopes, plans or desires.
So, if all of this is true why do so many people
let go of goals, dreams or desires?
Is it fear or insecurity? Could it be that you want
to avoid the rejection of others? Or, is it simply
you just don’t know how to begin?
We all have goals, dreams, plans and desires
whether written in stone or they are just
wandering aimlessly around in our
consciousness. We all want something better
or more whether in our spiritual, financial,
physical life or our relationships. But wanting
will never be enough – you have to create a
“white heat” of passion and desire and then turn
off the inner and outer negative messages that
can often be the only cause of our failure to
begin. I might add that developing the
necessary skills will always be a critical part of
any successful journey into the future. So the
choice is yours – keep getting better and
smarter or accept staying stuck where you are.
Below are simple strategies that can assist
you with achieving your goals and dreams.
Become committed to not procrastinate.
Just making a commitment to not put things off
can be very empowering. If you have a habit of
putting things off, just think about all of the
things that habit has stopped you from
achieving. Now imagine the things that you will
continue to not achieve, if you don’t become
committed to releasing procrastination out of
your life. Now imagine the things that you can
become blessed to achieve if you just make a
commitment to not procrastinate.
Put your goal or dreams in writing.
It is a good idea to keep a journal of your
aspirations. Write in your journal the things that
are related to what you want to achieve. For
example, you could write down the things that
inspire you to reach your goals or dreams. You
could also write down the reasons that you
deserve to reach all that you strive to reach.
You could also keep a list of the things that are
challenging for you. These are the things that
could be a potential obstacle for you. You could
then write down how you will overcome the
challenges. You could also keep track of action
steps that you are going to take to reach your
desired outcome. It is a good idea to write in
your journal often.
Keep your goals or dreams in front of you.
It is not only important to write your aspirations,
but it also important to keep them in front of
you. This could mean something as simple as
writing down your vision weekly on a sticky
note, and putting that sticky note somewhere
where you will continue to see it. If you don’t
keep your goals and dreams in front of you it
can be just like people say “Out of sight out of
mind.” If you don’t continue to keep your future
aspirations in front of you, then you may
become less dedicated to what you are working
toward and get off track. When you keep what
you want to achieve in front of you that can help
to keep things fresh in your mind, and help you
stay inspired and motivated.
Share your goals and dreams.
It is a great idea to share your desires with
others that you know support and believe in
you. This is a form of accountability and can
assist you with staying on track. If you are one
who struggles with procrastination, then
sharing your vision with someone else can help
eliminate procrastination being an obstacle, to
achieving what you want to achieve. Knowing
that you have someone to be accountable to,
can keep you moving.
Don’t give up.
No matter what comes your way it is extremely
important to not give up on what you are
working toward. You deserve to reach your
success, so make it up in your mind that no
matter what obstacles and challenges arise,
giving up on your goals and dreams is not an
option. When you develop that type of mind-set,
it can truly help you become a master of goal
and dream attainment.
